As simple as using the chat. No second screen.
There are loads of digital tools you can use to increase engagement in your live

Running live audience interactions on Microsoft Teams should be simple


Stop asking your attendees to perform browser gymnastics. Participating in polls, quizzes, wordclouds (and more!) is as simple as using the Microsoft Teams chat.

How does StreamAlive work?

No codes, embeds or funny URLs required* for Microsoft Teams sessions.
For your audience it's as simple as typing in the chat.

01. Set up your interactions

Before your event starts, add the interactions you want to run. Create your own questions, use ChatGPT to come up with questions for you, or use the library of pre-written questions.

Choose from polls, word clouds, spinner wheels, interactive maps, and more.

You can even add your slides so your presentation and audience interactions are shared from a single browser tab.

02. Connect to Microsoft Teams

StreamAlive connects to your Microsoft Teams account where you need to approve the permissions. It then enters your session as a bot that reads the chat stream. Learn more.

03. Share your screen

The StreamAlive presentation console contains all your slides and interactions that you can run through just like you would if your were presenting a PowerPoint, Keynote, or Google Slides deck.

* 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

StreamAlive isn't just for Microsoft Teams. We also love other streaming & meeting platforms.
(New platforms are added all the time!)
