Today is the day for all things that are written the same way. Elgato has just announced the Stream Deck MK.2. It’s the latest version of its incredibly convenient Stream Deck system that seeks to improve workflow and ensure streamers have the plugins they need at the push of a button.
Elgato revealed on July 15, 2021 that it had created the Stream Deck MK.2, the next iteration of its famous control pad. Not only has it been unveiled, but it’s available to purchase now for US$149.99 through the Elgato store.
The Stream Deck MK.2 has many features that should appeal to streamers and even those who want to open up new control options for their setups. It comes with 15 LCD keys that feature “one-touch touch operation” and visual feedback. The applications behind each of the keys are plugins available from the Stream Deck Store. As for the icons themselves, they are all customizable.
There are also a host of options and settings behind the icons. Users can create more complex actions by turning keys into folders containing as many functions as they need. It’s not just for streaming either, as the buttons can perform shortcut actions to help with video editing, music production and other typing-intensive tasks.
Personalization is also ensured with interchangeable fronts. These are available in the store or users can create their own. Perhaps the era of Xbox 360 faceplates is making a comeback. As for connectivity, the Stream Deck MK.2 stand is removable and the device uses a USB-C connection, which is included.
