Learn how to create multiple-choice questions overlay on Maestro.

Adding multiple-choice questions, such as polls, trivia questions, or predictions, to your live stream is a great way to make your streams more engaging for viewers.

To learn more about the difference between these multiple-choice options, check out our dedicated guide.

Here's how you can add a multiple-choice question overlay to your stream:

  1. Click "Library" from the admin bar
  2. Click "Add New" in the top right
  3. Select "Multiple Choice"
  4. Select "Poll," "Trivia," or "Prediction" at the top
  5. Type your Poll name and Question (Note: The poll name is internal and will not appear for the user. What appears for the user is the "question")
  6. Toggle "Show Numbers" ON to allow viewers to see raw numbers instead of a percentage of people who responded with each option. (Note: We recommend keeping this toggled off so that it only shows percentages)
  7. Depending on what you selected (Poll, Trivia, or Prediction), follow the directions below
