In-Person LiveShare is integrated into our platform, making it possible to start recording an in-person LiveShare session instantly without the use of any complex equipment.
In-Person LiveShare also allows for real-time streaming to your teammates. This means that you can take advantage of all the collaboration LiveShare has to offer, including timestamped note taking, chatting with teammates etc.
