What is Crowd Mics?
Crowd Mics is an application that turns the audience’s smartphone into a wireless microphone. It means that the audience can talk through their phone and be heard over the sound system, so everyone has a wireless microphone. Crowd Mics also includes text commenting and polling and is very user friendly.
The concept of Crowd Mics has arisen while the two brothers, Sean and Tim Holladay, were in a meeting and couldn’t hear the audience questions or comments. It suddenly hit co-founder Sean: “I can FaceTime someone across the world and see and hear them fine, but I can’t hear that person in the room with me. Why can’t I use my phone as a wireless microphone?”
How does it work?
The speaker on stage plugs an iOS or Android device into the room’s sound system using the Crowd Mics app and creates an event name with password. Everyone downloads the free Crowd Mics app, connects to the same wireless router and joins the event. Now the audience can participate with voice commenting, text commenting and polling.
When someone wants to ask a question or make a comment, the person simply needs to tap the “Request to Talk” button on their device, and the presenter will see a list of people who want to talk in the order of the requests.
Why use Crowd Mics?
– The app doesn’t require an Internet connection
– You can download the app for free
– You don’t need to provide everyone with microphones
– The focus is less on the mic and more on the discussion
– It generates true interaction and participation
