Introducing Spreecast Highlights!

Anyone who has been part of a live spreecast knows how vibrant the experience can be with our platform’s rich, genuine interactivity. As a team, we’ve been thinking hard about ways that we can bring some of that engagement to archived spreecasts and make it a more digestible user experience. Our new highlights feature does just that allowing viewers to seamlessly jump between key moments in a spreecast. So, for example, if you were on camera with Tony Robbins, you’d be able to skip right to the moment where you were brought on camera and even share that with your friends!

For archived spreecasts, you’ll now notice a new area below the video player that lists the event’s highlights. These moments are automatically curated based on certain actions that occur during a spreecast including people coming on camera, questions being asked or external media being put on screen. Event creators and producers will still have the ability to create clips, which will appear as highlights. For those of you who have already created clips, don’t worry we’re automatically porting those over into the highlight format!

You can read some more on the highlights feature in our Help Center, but feel free to shoot us an email at support@spreecast.com if you have any questions!
