Elgato Launches Stream Deck Pedal and Official Discord Plugin


Elgato is releasing a new Stream Deck pedal today, alongside the official Discord integration. The Stream Deck Pedal is an $89.99 pad with three pedals that can control software, hardware, and more. It seems ideal for streamers wanting to trigger effects, switch scenes, or even switch between cameras.

The Stream Deck Pedal is also great for accessibility, opening up streaming to those who can’t use a traditional Stream Deck. As the pedal extends the power of Stream Deck to more places, it will likely be used by DJs and musicians to control their streams away from their PC.

Elgato says the Stream Deck pedal supports multiple actions, so you can chain together a bunch of Stream Deck functions that can trigger intermittently or all at once on a single pedal. So a single pedal could take a screenshot, open the folder it’s stored in, and launch Twitter for easy sharing. Or you can switch stream scenes, play a new song, and switch to a voice changer from a single pedal.

Just like Stream Deck itself, the pedal is highly customizable and can even be used to control Zoom calls, Photoshop and many other applications.

The pedals have a grippy surface and non-slip feet so the Stream Deck pedal easily stays in place under a desk. There are also interchangeable springs inside, and it looks like you can adjust the pedal pressure accordingly.

Alongside the Stream Deck Pedal, Elgato is finally releasing its official Discord Stream Deck plugin. Until now, you had to use third-party plugins to quickly mute a Discord call on a Stream Deck. Elgato’s new plugin supports microphone mute, push-to-talk, the ability to join voice channels, and even switch text channels.

Elgato’s new Stream Deck pedal is available immediately from the company’s online store for $89.99.
