Interactive Kiosk

Introduction

Interactive Kiosk enables your content to be displayed as a screensaver, and additional content will be displayed after an interaction with the monitor, either through a touch or a keyboard click. After a selected period of inactivity, the monitor switches back to the screensaver content.

The Interactive Kiosk can be found in the General category of your app gallery. Simply click on it, then select “Use App” to start the setup.
