Well, it's been a crazy month. While most of our time was spent updating the player app, we've added some big customization options for hosts.
Twitch & YouTube Streams
You've asked and we've delivered. Your live streams from YouTube & Twitch are now able to be embedded right in the app for players to watch and play from the same device.
Players are also able to quickly access your YouTube & Twitch accounts from within you event.
Event Keys are so 2019
We've all seen it happen. You share an event key with your community so they can join your event. Immediately followed by,
What's the event key? from that one team who always joins late 😑.
Today we've introduced a big update to Trivnow to tackle this problem and put an end to the idea of an event key. Going forward players are now able to follow their favorite hosts. When someone follows you they'll be able to view, join, or set a reminder for your events!
Players can search for you by username from the Trivnow - Trivia Night App.
While the event key is still available, it's no longer the easier way for a player to find you and your events.
We've seen enough of ya'll having players type out Freebie and Double in the input field to realize it needed to be integrated into the platform. So, that's exactly what we've done.
You can now issue Special Rewards to teams in your events. These rewards come in 2 flavors: Freebie and Double. A Freebie will automatically grade the players answer as correct; a Double will give the player 2x the point value for that question.
This will add another layer of customization to your events and give players a little help on tougher questions. You can manually issue rewards to teams individually or set default values for all teams.
If we see another host ask their players to type in
ANSWER - WAGER AMOUNT they'll be banned from the platform. Well, we (probably) won't ban you, but you don't need to have players use the answer field as a wager selection anymore.
With Available Wagers you are able to create new game formats that allow players to set the point value for a question from a specified set of values set by you. In addition to setting the available wagers players can choose from, you can also set how often the player will be able to select a new wager.
