Streamlabs, a leading provider of streaming software, is once again expanding its offering to content creators, partnering directly with Twitch to launch a new webcasting “studio” for console streamers.
This new program is called Streamlab Studio and aims to eliminate the need for every creator to use a capture card, PC, or third-party software to create high-quality shows using a console.
Launched today, Streamlab Studio will allow console streamers to create overlays for their streams, set up personalized live alerts and more. This will be available exclusively to users streaming on Twitch from their Xbox consoles, in part to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Xbox and the recent upgrades Microsoft has made to console streaming on the platform.
