Streamlabs is pleased to announce that Collab Cam now allows you to invite up to 11 guests to your live stream or recording. Initially unveiled in 2022 at Twitchcon Amsterdam, Collab Cam is integrated with Streamlabs Desktop, meaning you can seamlessly invite guests to your stream without ever leaving our broadcasting software. Streamers can still add one guest for free; however, Streamlabs Ultra members now unlock the ability to invite 11 guests.
Collab Cam is a game-changer for streamers looking to elevate their content creation. With its ability to seamlessly cohost teammates while gaming, introduce new camera angles to your stream, and invite friends to chat, Collab Cam makes collaboration a breeze. And it’s not just limited to gaming — you can also use it to bring in players for a tabletop RPG or host a video conference or podcast. Whether you stream on Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, or a custom RTMP destination, Collab Cam is the easiest solution to stream or record with friends.
