Pixel Chat is the number 1 tool for streamers!
This might be the next tool you may want to implement. With it’s clean design, and it’s simple setup, the amount of customization you can add to your stream is infinite!
What is Pixel Chat?
Pixel chat is a streaming tool that gives you the ability to add widgets and overlays to your stream for FREE. You can add overlays such as shoutouts, closed captions, alerts, and many more! The customization is endless! There is a paid version for it which comes with extra features as well, but you do not have to pay at all to use the service!
Currently Pixel Chat is only available for Twitch and the upcoming streaming platform Glimesh, and it is compatible with any streaming software (including Lightstream for you console streamers)!
Pixel Chat features (at least some of them…)
- This feature is a very creative and visual way to shout out your fellow content creators. Instead of the shoutout popping up in the chat only, it also pops up on your screen!
- This feature allows you to display the emotes your audience is sending through your chat, and display them on your screen for however long you set it up.
- Now playing (only works with Spotify)
- Allows your viewers to see what song is playing! To trigger this overlay, you simply write the command assigned and you receive visual feedback on what song is playing (this includes the name of the song, the artist, and even a progress bar on where the song is currently at).
I could go on forever on all of the features that are available for you, but make sure to check out Pixel Chat yourself to see what works best for you!
How to add to your stream?
Each overlay has its own unique URL. You simply copy the URL that is provided to you once you add any overlay. Then, you add a browser source (in OBS or SLOBS) and you paste it. Pixel Chat will always adjust to the pixels you have in the browser source’s properties (make sure to play around with the pixels to have it the way you want).
