Alerts are the lifeblood of any live stream. Born out of a desire to share the events on stream with your fans, alerts give you the opportunity to acknowledge, thank, and interact with your viewers.

With Streamlabs OBS, you have the opportunity to customize the alerts viewers see when you receive Facebook Follows, Stars, Likes, Supports, and Shares.

Adding and customizing alerts is simple:

  1. In Streamlabs OBS, click the plus sign in the Sources section

2. Add an Alert Box source


3. After the source is added, navigate to the Alert Box dashboard on to customize it


4. Choose which specific alert you’d like to customize


5. Upload your own media, customize the layout, animation, message, image, sound and more!


6. Save your settings and your custom alert is ready to go!
