Delete a Moment from Chat Feed

Hosts can remove a Moment from the chat feed. On the top right of the Moment you want to remove, tap โ‹ฎ, Delete Moment.

Audience List Increases Visibility and Control

Between the existing Host Chat and Host Info tabs, the Audience List allows Hosts to:

  • See a searchable list of all attenders present at the service who have provided a chat name
  • See a searchable list of all Hosts present at the service
  • Start a separate chat with anyone at the service
  • Mute attenders
  • See which attenders are currently muted
  • See which attenders have left the service

Emoji Options Allow Multicultural Responses

Attenders can now select from the color palette of emojis for hand claps, and hand raises. Choosing a different skin tone works the same way your attenders are used to accessing it on other platformsโ€”just long-press on the emoji, then pick the one you want.

RTL Language Support

Television Browser Support

Now you can attend church online through the browser on your smart television, or through television devices. Church online functionality through a TV browser is limited to the basic video experience.

To see church online on your smart TV or TV device, open its browser and visit a website where church online is happening.

Image Moment

Our goal has always been to equip churches with tools that go beyond watching and focus on creating authentic community around content. One of the newest ways we're providing to deeper engage with your audience is through the brand-new Image Moment.

The Image Moment allows you to share an image in the chat feed. Attenders can like and discuss the image in the chat, and then share it directly to their social media feeds, which helps reach more people that may attend your service!

New Prayer Request and Private Chat Invite Sounds

When a prayer request or private chat request is initiated, we added an audible notification so Hosts can more easily connect with attenders.

Language Support for Burmese, Zawgyi

Burmese and Zawgyi have been added as supported and localized languages for attenders and Hosts.

Salvation Moment Updates

To add some flexibility for churches in the platform, Admins now have the ability to choose between a localized Salvation Moment or the brand-new customized Salvation Moment.

What's the difference between the two?

The localized Salvation Moment provides preset call-to-action text and preset response text that cannot be changed in order to automatically translate to a User's language based off of their geographic region.

When you customize the Salvation Moment, you have the choice to input your own prompt and response text.
