How to add guests/co-hosts to your broadcast

1. First, set up your broadcast. Instructions here:

2. Once the broadcast is set, click Guest from the toolbar. Click the Copy Link icon. A message saying "Guest link copied to clipboard" will appear. This means the link is ready to be sent to your guest.

3. Send the link to your guest. Paste the link using command+V (for Mac) or ctrl+V (for Windows). Guests can join using only their name, OR by signing in to their Facebook/Google account.

4. Once guests appear in the staging area, push their camera to the broadcast by clicking Show in Stream in the top right corner of their camera source.

To mute your guests, hit Mute on their camera preview.
