Get Creative!

Take your broadcasts to the next level. Pull up your iPhone screen and show any app, host a game with Kahoot, play your YouTube videos, or share your latest social media post.


A few tips and tricks

  • Turn up the volume on your computer! Viewers hear the audio picked up by your computer’s microphone.   
  • YouNow notifications are currently not available on the desktop app. Check your YouNow app or for updates.
  • If you’d like to share your phone screen on Windows or share an Android screen, you can use a 3rd party app like Reflector to mirror your phone and then share the Reflector window.
  • Currently you are not able to customize the layout.
