Pause, draw & make text annotations

The pause feature allows you to pause a live video stream and then interact on a still image.The drawing feature allows you to make drawings and interact on the shared view. Drawings are available for both guide and the person being guided, if the video is paused. Annotations allows you as a guide to add text boxes and attach it whereever you want in the picture.
