Today we are excited to introduce a brand new feature for Streamlabs Ultra—the ability to customize the name of Cloudbot. Currently, this feature is only available for Twitch. While Streamlabs Ultra is required to name your Cloudbot, our core set of products and features like donations, Streamlabs Desktop, and custom alerts will always remain free. With Streamlabs Ultra, users get a suite of supplementary features and apps designed to increase the production value of their stream and boost audience engagement. To learn more about Streamlabs Ultra, visit our website for more information.
To get started naming your Cloudbot, visit the Cloudbot dashboard and follow the steps below.
Merge Main Twitch Account
To begin, ensure you have your main Twitch account merged. If you’d like to add another account, you can do so from the Account Settings page. After your account is merged, login, and navigate to Cloudbot to make sure it is enabled.
Name your Bot
Navigate to the Name tab in the Cloudbot section of the dashboard.
To update the name of Cloudbot, first, create a new account. Your new Cloudbot will use the username of any Twitch account you connect. If you don’t have an account specifically for your bot then create one now. If you already have an account for your bot, you can move on to the next step.
Connect your Bot Account
Once you’ve created an account for your bot, connect it to Twitch by clicking here to add. You will be prompted with a screen from Twitch to authorize your account.
***Be sure you authorize your new bot account, not your account!***
By default, Twitch will ask you to authorize your primary account. To authorize your new bot account, click “not you?” at the top of the authorization page.
You’re all set!
Make sure you have the Alert Box open and go to your primary Twitch channel to test out your new bot name.
