What Are Stream Labels?

Stream labels are labels with automated text on a streamer’s screen that changes when an action occurs (such as a new follower). They are commonly used as reminders for viewers to subscribe, follow, or donate. 

Stream labels can be edited within your broadcasting software to match the colors of your brand to help them stand out.

Before you can set up stream labels in SLOBS, you must first make sure that you are logged in to your account. You can do this by clicking the login button at the lower left-hand side of your screen. Once you are logged in, complete the following:
