Elgato released Stream Deck Mobile, an app that turns iPhones into a streaming controller for videos on YouTube, Twitch, Mixer, and beyond.
After configuration through the desktop version of Stream Deck, Stream Deck Mobile can include up to 15 action buttons. These trigger functions such as audio, lights, uploading, launching websites, switching cameras and displaying text on screen.
The apps efficiently duplicate Elgato’s hardware Stream Deck. Some other compatible software and services include Twitter, VoiceMod, Spotify, Philips Hue, OBS Studio, Streamlabs, and Nvidia Share.
The computer / mobile pairing process is handled by using an iPhone to scan a QR code. Once this is done, both devices should stay on the same Wi-Fi network.
Stream Deck Mobile is free to download for iPhones with iOS 12.2 or higher, but full usage costs $ 2.99 per month or $ 24.99 per year. Workstations must be running at least Stream Deck 4.3 on macOS 10.13 or Windows 10.
