Connect RC Meetings to Facebook Live & YouTube and add Large Webinars feature (from Zoom)

Since RC Meetings is private-label Zoom, and Zoom has the ability to connect meetings to Facebook Live and YouTube Live, can that be added as an option to RC Meetings?
Also, Zoom allows for Webinars to be viewed by 10,000 watch-only viewers. Would love for this to be part of RC Meetings too.

Hi, I am also interested in the ability to use Ring Central just as Zoom to go Live...

I currently hold both a Zoom AND Ring Central account and it's VERY redundant to pay for both accounts.

Literally, the only feature that Zoom has and Ring Central doesn't is the Live ability... I would prefer to consolidate all my video conferencing needs and use only Ring Central and not have to pay for a Zoom account.
I absolutely agree. I REALLY LOVE RingCentral but sadly I may have to choose Zoom because of the LIVE feature.

I hadn't used that feature in zoom was preparing to do so.  This is a feature I expected to be in RingCentral that I should have asked about.

Please either tell me how to make this happen, or please add the feature.

This is one reason we hang on to zoom licenses (Live streaming), it would be great to make this available in RC webinars.

So it's not possible to live stream from RingCentral Meetings or Webinar to social platforms?

I'm also looking to run a virtual 1-day event and would need the ability to stream to Facebook Live and YouTube Live concurrently. Is this possible with RingCentral or do we need to sign up for a paid Zoom account in order to do this? We'd appreciate an official response from RingCentral here.

Has anyone from RC responded to this request? This would be really helpful so I don't have to pay for a zoom account too!

It is kind of ridiculous that no one from RingCentral has responded to this. It seems like it should be an option given that it is available with Zoom.

I too would like to use this. I'll have to use Zoom in the meantime, which is not preferred.

I was looking for the same option since Zoom already has this on their platform

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Host a webinar and be broadcasted through different platforms.

With COVID-19, we've had to move most of our interactions online. We've been hosting webinars more often at our organization but we are hoping to host a webinar but have the ability to live broadcast to other platforms such as Facebook Live.
