What to consider when choosing Facebook live streaming software

Want to stream on Facebook seamlessly? First, you’ll want software with an easy Facebook Live setup. Look for software that already integrates Facebook and lets you push your stream to Facebook live with a few simple clicks. It’s even better if this software simulcasts your stream to Facebook and other social media platforms at the same time. Make sure your live stream is in high resolution and we recommend software that records as you stream so you can repurpose your content after. 

You’ll want engaging live streaming tools to connect with your audience. Think of features such as live calls, chats, and live sound effects. It's best if you have behind-the-scenes producer controls so you can invite someone to help you without disrupting your recording. If you want to co-host a Facebook live with a friend, consider choosing software that allows you to invite guests to record in the same stream as you. Your software should be simple to use and accessible to all levels.
