Elgato’s Stream Deck systems give streamers quick access to a variety of actions and macros, such as starting and ending streams, adjusting lighting and audio levels, switching between profiles, controlling music or performing multiple actions at the same time. Less than a year after releasing a smaller version of the Stream Deck, Elgato is going the other way with Stream Deck XL, while it also released an iOS app.
Stream Deck XL has 32 customizable LCD buttons, compared to 15 in the standard model. The accompanying desktop app now has an app store, with plugins from third-party developers that should give you more flexibility for the actions you trigger when you press a button.
The Stream Deck Mobile app offers the same functionality, but wireless and without the need for a physical device. You will have the choice between 15 virtual keys and the application will be associated with the Stream Deck desktop software via a QR code. Stream Deck XL and the app are available now. The device costs $ 250 while Stream Deck Mobile has a free trial and then it will cost $ 3 / month or $ 25 / year.
