Using the Socialive Mobile App is extremely handy for a few reasons:

  • Everyone has a smartphone

  • Newer smartphones = better quality cameras = pristine guest feeds

  • Easily switch between cellular data or WiFi to ensure a strong connection

Often, it may be the better choice to go with the mobile app, depending on the device or connection. Here is a guide on how to use Socialive Mobile.  


If you have decided to use the mobile app, here are some best practices to ensure the best experience: 

  • Turn your phone on "Do Not Disturb" mode 

  • Remove any bulky case

  • Close all other apps (running in the background)

  • Turn off Bluetooth if not being used for the broadcast (i.e., Bluetooth headphones) 

  • Avoid direct sunlight 

  • Reduce brightness 

  • Use a tripod to get the best framing. 

  • Have the charger and outlet nearby in case the battery runs out!

The ability to join a broadcast from the Socialive mobile app is currently only available on iOS. The Socialive Recorder app is available for Android devices, but only for recording videos and uploading them to your Recordings library. The ability to join a broadcast via Android devices is coming later in 2022.
