Adding alerts to your Twitch, YouTube, or Facebook live stream is usually one of the first things you do when you set up your first live stream. On-screen alerts are often your viewer’s first impression. They represent you, your brand, and you can completely customize them to match your personality or aesthetic.
Not only does it help you stand out from the crowd, it also keeps your viewers coming back and encourages others to participate in your live stream. This is especially important when you’re live streaming from your mobile device. When you’re streaming from a PC, you have more display space to take note of your chat and engage your viewers. When you’re on a smaller mobile device, everything that’s going on during your live stream can easily get lost.
Setting up stream or Twitch alerts on your mobile live stream can help you stay on top of things and better engage your audience. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how easy it is to set up stream alerts for your mobile live stream using the Streamlabs Mobile App.
