Live streams allow you to quickly share the latest and greatest with your followers and immerse your friends in your surroundings. If you own a business, live streams are one of the easiest ways to answer your clients’ questions and gain their trust. Get on the VK mobile app and in just a couple of taps, you’re broadcasting to the world.

We’ve added a new feature that can make your live streams even more engaging and interactive. Tell your viewers more about yourself and what you’re interested in by adding links in live streams. Now you can instantly share posts, hold polls, present products and attach links to interesting profiles and communities.

Draw attention to content you want to discuss or recommend. Add a link to your live stream and viewers will be able to check it out with one tap. You can share useful articles, promote one of your products, launch a poll or even talk about a new community you created. Your viewers will be able to order a product you’re promoting or vote in your poll right during your live stream.

You can switch out which link you’re showing while you’re still live streaming. You can either choose a link from ones you’ve prepared in advance or just add a new one on the go. You’ll not only be able to read your viewers’ reactions through activity in the chat but you’ll have detailed statistics to go off of as well. With these statistics, you’ll instantly see how many clicks each link got. Links in live streams offer new possibilities to interact with your viewers.

Hold polls. It’s the simplest and most effective way to get your viewers’ opinions on any topic — find out which community they like more, what they want to see during your live stream, or whether you should organize a meet-up with your followers. They’ll be able to answer these questions by just tapping on one of the options available. You’ll be able to see how the statistics change in real time and make adjustments based off of them. You can also put your creativity to the test and come up with a game where the course of the game depends on the choices the viewers make.

Promote products and services. During your live stream, your viewers will see the product you attached, and you’ll have the opportunity to take and answer your viewers’ questions in real time. By keeping track of your statistics while you’re talking about the price, quality or uniqueness of your products, you’ll be able to easily tell which of your products’ qualities encourage people to click on the link. You can also add a link to your own VK Apps service in your live stream and tell your viewers about how convenient it is to use.

Discuss content and share recommendations. Attach a post, article, profile or community page to your live stream and encourage your viewers to check it out and discuss the content they find there. You could share links to charities, funny memes, interesting stories, special offers from partners, etc — basically, anything you and your followers might find interesting.

You don’t need any professional equipment or special conditions to make interaction with your viewers more engaging. All you have to do is attach a link to your live stream on the Android or iOS VK mobile app. This is just the first step we’re taking in expanding the interactive abilities of live streams. Using links in live streams will become even more convenient and more new features are just around the corner. Share, amaze, create and just be yourself with VK live streams!
