- How do Gifts work?
While watching a stream, you have the chance to show your appreciation by buying the streamer virtual gifts! The gifts are paid for with "Credits" which you can easily purchase by tapping the Gift icon in each stream. The more gifts you buy, the higher levels you'll reach!
Received gifts are converted into diamonds.
- ... And what are Diamonds?
As a streamer, the gifts you receive will convert into diamonds. Diamonds can then either be exchanged for credits to be used on Zoosk Live, or you can have them paid out in real money - top streamers make big bucks!
- What are Exclusive Gifts then?
"Exclusive gifts" cannot simply be bought, but become available when you as a user reach specific levels.
- ... And what are Levels?
The more active you are on Zoosk Live - watching streams, streaming, buying gifts, etc. - the quicker you rise through the levels. Each level opens up new opportunities.
- How do I keep track of streams that I like?
Just tap the Star icon in the upper part of the screen while watching a stream. The streamer will be added to your favorites, and you will find them in the favorites tab. You will also receive a notification next time they are live!

To join someone else's NextDate, go to the "Date" tab and choose a user. Tap the "Date Me" heart symbol.
- What is a "Battle"?
A battle is a competition between two streamers. Viewers buy gifts for whichever streamer they like the most, and the winner is the streamer who ends up with the most diamonds.
On Zoosk Live, battles are recognized by the VS symbol.
- Can I watch old streams?
No, as the name suggests, Zoosk Live is entirely live and streams are not stored.

A lot is allowed, however, among other things, the following is not allowed:
