What does Power Polls do?

Say hello to visual interactions. When you create live polls using StreamAlive for your webinar, livestream, or hybrid event the audience can vote directly from the chat box. No second screens, no sending users to a different website. Survey your audience, break the ice, or get instant feedback. Power Polls is your way to know what the audience is thinking.

How does Power Polls work?

No codes, embeds or funny URLs required* for online sessions. Power Polls works directly from the live chat of your existing streaming or webinar platform.

* StreamAlive supports hybrid and offline audiences too via a mobile-loving, browser-based, no-app-to-install chat experience. Of course, there’s no way around a URL that they have to click on to access it.

All major platforms supported

Run Power Polls on all of these streaming & meeting platforms.

How you can use Power Polls

Once your audience gets a taste for live polls, they’ll want to see them used more often.

Break the ice

Ask your audience what topics they'd like to see covered in the live session or what topic to cover next.

Warm-up your audience

Ask your audience what their favorite movie genre is, which person they admire most, or just what they do to relax.

Get instant feedback

Ask your audience for feedback on anything from the live session to an idea that you presented, to a review of the latest movie.

Powered by the chat box,
not weird URLs

Your audience can interact with Power Polls directly from the chat box. No browser gymnastics for your audience to follow. No second screens to distract them. Simply start the interaction while you are sharing your screen and your audience can start voting immediately.

Run live polls with pre-defined options or make it open ended

Power Polls supports any type of live poll you need to run. Run a poll with pre-defined options, or make it open-ended with the options defined by the answers the audience provides. StreamAlive is smart enough to group similar answers together, allow for typos, filter out profanity, and restrict the poll to one answer per person.

Keep your audience glued to your event (not to their phones)

Power Polls is powered by the live chat of your livestreaming or webinar platform so your audience’s attention is glued to your event, not on a second screen or different browser tab. Keep your engagement rates high by avoiding opportunities for your audience to become distracted.

Enhanced with AI to do the thinking and writing for you

When inspiration is difficult to come by, StreamAlive's ChatGPT integration is here to help. It will give you suggestions for live polls you can ask your audience and even fill out the answer choices for you. Planning your live session has never been easier with AI-powered tools to do the work for you.

Customize the look and feel of your live polls

Control the colors and fonts used in your live polls to make it blend with your brand colors - or just to make it pop! You can even change the answer count to show percentages or the raw number of votes.

Save your live poll results and see who voted

All audience interactions are automatically saved in your Analytics dashboard. You can see who voted for what poll option, how effective the audience interaction was in terms of boosting engagement, and view the final results.
