What are Viewer Polls?
Live Streaming Polls or 'Viewer Polls' set a question to your audience and present a range of multiple choice answers. The subject of the Live Stream Poll typically matches the content running in the live stream directly prior to it.
The viewer is offered a range of answers to choose from, usually 3 or 4 answers. In a well coordinated live stream, the viewer poll may be supported with professional graphics and video sequences where the presenter verbally describes the upcoming poll to the viewer.
