Delay Tab, Delay is for live streamers only, if you are going live over the internet (Video Conferencing is real time) so only if you are using Facebook, Twitch, Tik-Tok, YouTube, etc, is there a delay on your live stream, if you are using this method, you need to send a timer down your stream, watch your stream and work out the time difference.

Then in the box, put the number of seconds, and your player will receive the keypad at the right time, you are LIVE, so you won’t see any answers coming in till the delay is over (but don’t panic, this is to make it real time for your player) you will then get a delay countdown, so you know while hosting, when all the answers will be in by.
