What's New in Switcher 8.1 — Share Clips to Facebook and Instagram (Clone)

Are you ready to get your Switcher content in front of even more people — and on even more platforms?


With Switcher Studio 8.1, we made it possible to share short clips of your Switcher productions directly to four new destinations:

  • Facebook reels
  • Facebook stories
  • Instagram stories
  • Instagram feed

How does it work? Once your Switcher production has ended, tap My Recordings in the main menu to access the Clips tool. Trim your recording length, change the playback speed, add text or captions, and more. Save your clip, and then tap the share icon to choose where to share it.

Check out our Help Center articles on sharing a clip to Instagram and sharing a clip to Facebook to learn more.

What’s New in Switcher 8.2 — Replay Purchasing, Multistreaming to Twitch, and more (Clone)

Do you use Switcher to sell live, multistream your productions, or elevate your video conferences? Great news — Switcher 8.2 augments three of your favorite features and adds additional support for getting even better at using Switcher. With Switcher 8.2 you’ll be able to:

  • Enable replay purchasing with Cartr
  • Multistream directly to Twitch
  • Sync your Mac audio when using Switcher as a Webcam
  • Learn from in-app video tutorials

Sell more with replay Purchasing

Cartr makes shopping easy and fun for your customers: When you sell Shopify products on Facebook Live with Cartr, your live viewers can initiate a purchase just by commenting on the stream. Now the shopping doesn’t need to stop when the stream does! Replay purchasing means that customers can still shop by commenting on your Facebook Live video for up to 14 days post-stream. Cartr makes shopping easy, fun, and more convenient than ever for your customers. 💸

Add Twitch to Your Multistreaming Destinations

We’re adding even more destinations to our built-in Multistreaming feature! Now you can use Switcher to multistream directly to Twitch in addition to the original direct Multistreaming destinations of Facebook and YouTube.

When streaming to multiple destinations, all comments appear in the Switcher Live Comments tab, so it’s easy to monitor the discussion across platforms. Plus, setting up a Custom RTMP channel lets you multistream to almost any other platform. Simply create a new Multistream in the app or on the Dashboard to get started.

Plug any USB mic or audio mixer into your computer running macOS, and your crisp, clear commentary will pair perfectly with your Switcher video. No distracting lip flap in sight.

Updates to Switcher Business

Switcher isn't just our business – it's your business too. We're proud that our software helps creators and professionals bring their livestreaming dreams to life, so we recently made our Business plan even better. Here's what's new:

The Switcher Player

Introducing one of our biggest additions to the Business plan ever: the Switcher Player.

20220808---Switcher-Player (1)

Embed your Switcher production

Ever Googled “how do I embed my livestream on my website?” We’ve got the answer.

With the Switcher Player, Business subscribers can embed Switcher productions right on your website.

Direct viewers to a unique URL

No website? No worries. You can still have the exclusive feel of an embedded video player and the ease of an evergreen URL with a unique player.switcherstudio.com address for your Switcher Player productions. You can even apply your brand color palette.

Clickable button overlay

Plus, add interactivity to your Switcher Player production, ideal for worship and nonprofit users collecting donations. Configure your donation links, adding sites like PayPal, Tithe.ly, and more. When your audience clicks the button, a pop-up will display a list of your saved URLs, making it easy for viewers to donate in real time.

Lowered subscription cost

Great news — we lowered the price. (How often does that happen?) The $149 per month Business tier is now only $99 per month.

Enhanced customer support

Higher stakes = a higher tier of support. In addition to our A1 Customer Support team, Switcher Business subscribers now get personalized onboarding calls and a dedicated customer success specialist (kind of like a personal trainer, but for Switcher).
