How to Stream with Multiple People

Your streams are about to get a lot more exciting! Invite multiple guests to participate in your streams: we’ll show you how!

Last Updated on November 22, 2022

Going live with multiple people used to be a pain. Someone would stream and the others would join through a (usually scuffed) voice chat. Not anymore! Streamlabs Collab Cam is an easy-to-use, innovative tool that has totally changed the game when it comes to streaming with more than one person. Keep reading to learn how to go live with three people (or more!).

With Collab Cam, you can invite up to four guests*, which makes for a total of five people on stream including yourself. Your guests don’t have to be streamers to show their camera on your screen: they can easily join through their browser on a PC, Mac, or mobile device. However, if your guest(s) is a streamer, they can choose to join through Streamlabs Desktop, meaning you both can go live to Twitch, YouTube, wherever, at the same time.

*Invite one guest for free. Invite up to four guests with a Streamlabs Ultra subscription.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Step 1: In Streamlabs Desktop, add the Collab Cam source to your scene.
