There are millions of broadcasters who want to be unique and to attract more people to watch their LIVE videos. In our opinion, there are two great ways to do your stream better for viewers: create quality content and make your broadcast more interactive. Of course, if you want to become popular you need to develop in both ways. And to help streamers add some fun we created Pulsoid.
