Interactive Meeting Room

Our Interactive Meeting Room serves as the main hub for conducting your Live Conversation and can easily be customized to align with market regulation, support your conversation, and streamline analysis. 


  • Global Ready

The Interactive Meeting Room is localized to the browser of your respondent. If you need a translator to join the discussion, our translator option makes it easy.

  • Observer Backroom

Invite Stakeholders & Team Members to observe your conversation from the backroom. Observers aren't seen/heard during the conversation but have access to chat, save moments & Live Support if enabled for your Research.

  • Screenshare

 Moderators & Respondents can also share their desktop screens instead. An option to share the tab's audio is also available.

  • Interview Materials

Within the meeting room, moderators can use various Interview Materials features to guide their conversation and save specific insights. Learn more about our full range of Interview Materials.

  • Stimuli & Interactive Whiteboard

Promoting engagement, users can share stimuli on a whiteboard within the meeting room, equipped with tools to make conversations more interactive and enhance brainstorming.  



Mobile User Experience

Moderators can gain insights into users' mobile behaviors by allowing respondents to share their device screens directly within the meeting room. During mobile screen-sharing interviews, respondents join the session and broadcast their mobile device screen into the meeting room.

Researchers will be able to see a user's phone as a separate screen (on the whiteboard) in the session. It allows researchers to see how participants use mobile apps or mobile websites.




Once the mobile screen share has been successfully launched.

  • The respondent's mobile screen will be visible on the whiteboard space in the center of the meeting room.
  • The video streams of the moderator and respondent will be pushed to the left-hand side of the meeting room. If the respondent joins via mobile, their video feed will be disabled.

Transcripts also make it easy for cross-project search.

Moreover, researchers can reduce their market research tech stack by utilizing Discuss's all-in-one platform to create videos with their insights. Clips, quotes, and asynchronous research can be merged into a highlight reel, simplifying the sharing of findings with colleagues and stakeholders.
