Extension Details

Sound Alerts is an extension that allows you to upload your own sound alerts for your stream or choose from within their own library. Once you have created your selection, you can set monetary amounts to each sound.

During your stream, your viewers will have the option of purchasing and playing a sound using bits. After the transaction is made, the sound will play out for you and the rest of your viewers.

If you are strategic, you may choose to play sounds that relate to your game to create real reactions on stream that were caused by your viewers. For instance, using the creeper hissing sound while you play Minecraft could cause you to panic within the game and run around to avoid blowing up.
