Streamlabs launches OBS Studio plugin

The OBS Studio plugin streamlines the process of creators going live. Previously, streamers had to spend a lot of time configuring features from the two platforms. Now, they can transition from setup to streaming much more quickly. The plugin also features audience interaction capabilities and enhanced visual components, according to the official announcement.

“Streaming is all about the power of community, and this belief has inspired the release of our new plugin for OBS," Ashray Urs, the head of product at Streamlabs, said. "By breaking down the barriers between our unique solutions, we can help streamers achieve the best possible go-live experience."

Urs added how the OBS Studio plugin gives creators the tools and support required for an improved streaming experience for themselves and their viewers.
