To improve the Streamlabs OBS user flow and reduce the steps to set up your stream and go live, we’ve combined the Editor and Live tab into a single unified Editor tab. This is a simple but important change that will give more users the right amount of space for their Preview, Chat, Scenes, Sources, Mixer, and Recent Events. If you’d like to get started with Streamlabs OBS, you can download it here.
After further investigation into the way people use our software, we uncovered that many users remain on the Editor tab even when they are broadcasting live. After careful consideration, we decided to merge the Editor and Live tab because they have very similar functionality.
This new design is less redundant and gives users the right amount of space for each element to manage their stream. You can learn more about the new design here.
Power users that need to display more than a few events will be able to pop out the Recent Events section to take full advantage of the functionality.
We have many other exciting changes in this Streamlabs OBS release we’re excited to share with you. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to stay updated on everything new we’re working on.
