Preview a Service

 

New

 

 

Preview lets you test a Service before you run it live. When you add a new Service at the bottom of the new Service screen, select Save and Preview. Your Preview launches in a new tab, with a link you can copy and share with other team members so they can test it too.

Sermon Notes Engage Attenders in Your Service

 

New

 

 

Attenders can now create their own notes or edit existing sermon notes during a Service. If you donโ€™t provide notes for a Service, attenders will still be able to use the space to create their own. They will also be able to download notes.

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.

Television Browser Support

 

New

 

 

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

 

New

 

 

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!
