The Audience Member Role: Details

Participants in a Riverside Studio session join in specific roles.

Audience members see the Host, Guests, and any Producers in the Studio as soon as the recording begins, like they are watching a webinar. They can also write messages in the group chat.

If a Studio is set to Private, Audience members cannot enter and watch, even if they have an invite.


Generally, Audience members are not recorded. But if they join using a computer, they can request permission start a Live Call-In. When the Host or Producer accepts their request, the Audience member is recorded like a Guest.
