We are starting the new year with some exciting new features and updates.
“Live in Five” is our current sprint theme and we are working towards making it easier and faster for you to go live. Our goal is to enable our users to go live in 5 minutes or less. To achieve this we improved the live dashboard and made it support mobile devices. This means streamers can go live directly from their mobile phone.
The New Live Dashboard
Our new live dashboard gives you what you see is what you get to experience during your live. You can see the chat, publish products and lucky draws and manage your live event from a single screen.
This new feature allows you to create sessions that are pre-recorded. You simply upload a video from your device, attach products and publish them to your Flux Panda landing page. Your customers can then watch and buy your products in the same fashion they would when watching a live event. Recordings are a great way to showcase your products using small clips, or even promote your upcoming live session.
When someone is placing an order an automated email is sent to the customer and yourself with all the information.
Chat UI Improvements
The chat UI has been re-designed, and we added support for scrolling to older messages plus a notifications if new messages arrive while reading chatter of the past.
New Short URL
We introduced a new shorter URL for all channels that use our default domain https://flux.video/flux-demo making it easier to share your channel on social media.
