If hearing your favourite stars live on Heart isn't enough, you'll love the new function on Global Player that lets you watch them live in the studio.

Love hearing your favourite stars on Heart, but want to get closer to the action?

With Heart's new Watch Live on Global Player functionality, you can be transported straight to our Leicester Square studios, and see your favourite presenters chatting to big name celebs live and direct!

Getting involved is easy, when presenters tell you they are Going Live on Global Player, it's time to grab your device and get ready to tune in


Open the Global Player app on your smartphone or tablet (make sure you have the latest version, from April 27), and you will see a small square in the top right hand corner that says 'live'.

This is just a thumbnail of the live output - click on it and it opens the video full screen, letting you watch the live stream on your phone.
