What is the Difference Between "Mevo Hotspot" and Connecting to a Wi-Fi Network?

Mevo supports a variety of ways of connecting to the internet so that you can go live from your event. We understand that some of the terms and methods may be confusing, so we break it down for you here.

Mevo Hotspot refers to Mevo's ability to create a wireless access point to which your mobile device can connect via its Wi-Fi settings. This is a similar concept as connecting your phone to a wireless device via Bluetooth, but it's more reliable.

Connect to Wi-Fi means you configure your Mevo to connect to the internet via a local Wi-Fi network. When using this connection type, streaming would occur via the Wi-Fi network and not your mobile device's data plan.
