Floating ‘Miniplayer’ for Live Stream Shopping Shows

Big Update: Floating ‘Miniplayer’ for Live Stream Shopping Shows4 min read

Spoiler alert! The Live Video Shopping experience on your Ecommerce Store is about to get so much better!

We’ve been at this for a long time now. While we did a lot of testing and research on the new Miniplayer Feature, this big change was ultimately led by you, our inspiring clients. You give us the building blocks we need to make our Live Stream Shopping Platform a more effective and functional tool for you and your buyers, enabling you to do what’s best for your brand.

The Channelize.io Team is excited to announce the addition of Floating Miniplayer functionality to our Live Stream Shopping Platform. Shopify store owners can now offer an immersive experience to their customers with this new feature.

The Miniplayer is a minimized version of the Channelize.io Live Video Shopping player which enables buyer audiences to watch live shopping shows in a small floating player in the corner of their screen. While doing so buyers can seamlessly continue to watch Shopping Shows while surfing a brand’s website, product pages, add products to cart and proceed with checkout, with no interruption. Additionally, they can maximize the player and continue watching a live shopping show in the expanded form at any time.

A cherry on the cake: This works for both Live as well as Past (Recorded) Shopping Shows.

NOTE: The Miniplayer is currently available to our customers on Shopify, and is soon coming up for our UI Kits, Embedded Shopping Shows, and other integrations.

Benefits of Miniplayer feature:

Always on Top : The floating player window stays in the foreground, while your buyers can explore your online store in the background.

Adjustable, Simple & Controllable : Player can be placed anywhere a user likes. And it also enables users to pop out a live show in just one click. Easy! Isn’t it?

Explore & Multitask : This powerful feature makes multitasking possible for your viewers. Viewers can seamlessly navigate a brand’s website, browse product pages, add products to cart, and proceed with the checkout process to complete their order while watching a live shopping show.
