xats Live is a custom feature that allows you to turn your group into a spectator chat for online events. It allows easy management of chats with large numbers [100,000s] of spectators. Applications include:

If you are a main owner in a chat and would like to activate live mode, click on Edit your chat above the Sign out button and then click on Extra Features at the top right. On the Extra Chat Box Features section, under Other options, you will see a box that reads Live mode: 100,000s can watch the chat as spectators. Check it and click on the Update these options button at the bottom of the page.
