Pros: I LOVE how easy it is to set up a session, the chat and poll and questions features are clever and seamless, and the quality of the streaming platform itself is fantastic. On top of this, their support team is incredibly generous and helpful in getting you up and running! The deep integration with Drip is great, as is the ability to send out your streams to other places. Overall it's great software and my #1 choice for live video broadcasts at the time of this review!

Cons: I don't love that people need an account to join your stream, it's the one drawback that's fairly annoying. In the long run I can see how it makes it easier for attendees if you're live streaming regularly, but it does sometimes feel like I'm building Crowdcast's brand, which for paid software is a bit strange. I'd also like to see functionality that can let you play video and audio inside Crowdcast. I know right now they've made it so it integrates with other tools that do this, but it feels like a stop-gap measure, when really they should be just incorporating more features like this that can give Crowdcast users an edge when it comes to delivering professional live streams. I really think this platform has the chance to be the Eventbrite of live video if it continues to push the boundaries of its feature set.

Pros: I love this software because it makes delivering value to my community so easy. I use it for all my webinars, coaching sessions and classes and it makes it very easy for them to get the help they need from me as a service provider. The Q&A function is AMAZING!!!

Cons: There's nothing I don't like to be honest! The replays used to be poor quality, but they've introduced HD quality now and so that's made everything a lot easier.

Overall: I can't imagine running my business without this app - its that good! Plus Erin and the team are fab.

Pros: That you can chat, ask questions, answer questions live. Works on desktop and mobile, and mobile app!

Overall: I've used crowdcast for many virtual meetups and conferences and it's so great to be able to interact with the viewers and hosts alike.

Pros: The overall setup was very streamlined and made it easy to access all the features I'd need to interact with viewers. While there are some free video streaming services, this is the one that professionals and legitimate digital conferences will use.

Cons: Can't really think of anything right now.

Overall: Great! I had some questions and they answered promptly. Then using it was seamless.

Our webinar visitors LOVE Crowdcast.io!

Comments: We had been using gotowebinar for about 3 years. One of the main pain points was that our attendees would need to download their software to view our webinars. With Crowdcast everything happens right in the browser, and we average over 30% extra users per session. We're suckers for an awesome UI and experience.

Pros: With crowdcast I was able to share items with a variety of members, students, from across the state.

Cons: I don't have an issue with the product just the argument that there are so many free alternatives that offer similar options

Pros: I like the amount of people you can add to a webinar. Seeing all the comments is great as well, and the video quality seems decent.

Cons: The inability to talk via voice with the presenter, and the question box and voting are hard to access. I haven't tried customer service.

I would recommend this for any company that wants to share content on live format.

Pros: Easy to use.

In the replay section, clients can have access to Q&A

No drama in implementation.

The curve to learn the software is super easy

The support team is outstanding.

Cons: It would be nice to have HD version in the future, but I believe that is on the roadmap. Also, I think it would be great if the app if you could have more freedom to design landing pages.

Overall: Easy to use.

Time to implementation.
