What Is Game Widget?
Game Widget from Streamlabs is a new widget that lets your viewers play Tic-Tac-Toe or Chat Words against AI while you live stream. At Streamlabs, we believe in providing creators with the tools they need to succeed. Game Widget is another addition to our free collection of tools and features designed to help you grow your channel and build a better stream.

How Does It Work?
After adding Game Widget to your live stream, you can set a specific command your viewers can use to play their turn. By default, we set the command to !slgame. Playing each game is pretty easy:
Tic-Tac-Toe: For chatters to provide their response, they can type !slgame 1–9 in the chat to play their turn. The game will put an X next to the number that got the most responses.
Chat Words: Chatters can type in the command !slgame followed by a 5-letter word (i.e. !slgame power). By default, on the game widget, correct letters will light up green, misplaced letters will light up orange, and wrong letters will appear gray. Chatters must work together to uncover the hidden 5-letter word.
How to Add Game Widget
Step 1: Open Streamlabs Desktop. Under Sources, click the plus sign.
Step 2: Scroll down and click on Game Widget.
Step 3: In the Settings for Game Widget window, choose which game you'd like your viewers to play. Here, you can also change the settings for the game widget. There are two types of settings:
General settings customize how the widget functions. You can edit the time it takes for your chat to send in their response, you can customize the command your chat can use to play the game, and change the messages that will appear if you receive no input from your chat or the game restarts.
Game-related settings give you a ton of freedom and functionality to make this game look like your own. You can customize the background colors, the color of the X's and O's and characters, the color of the borders, and so on. You can edit various messages here, including the "chat won" message, the chat lost message, and so on.
Step 4: Once you close the settings window, you should see your game of choice on your live stream ready for your viewers to play.
