Setting Up Streamlabs Chatbot for Twitch
Streamlabs Chatbot is a program that works for Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer, allowing you to more easily moderate your stream while interacting with your viewers more easily. The chatbot can be automated to greet new viewers, post messages at scheduled times, and get your viewers chatting and engaging while you can focus on playing the game and providing more personalized interactions.
Downloading Streamlabs Chatbot
To get started, just go to https://streamlabs.com/chatbot where you’ll see the Download Now button. It really is that easy. However, under the download button are the documentation options for Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer which are in-depth how-to guides for setting up your bot, including creating polls, minigames, sound files, and more.
Once it’s downloaded, you can launch it and you’ll see the Streamlabs Chatbot dashboard box. Go to Connections which is the person icon at the bottom of the left-hand menu. The second option on the left hand menu is Twitch Streamer. Add your username and generate your Oauth-Token and authorize your account. Click connect, and you should have access to features including follow, host, and chat notifications.
Create a Bot Account
Next, you’ll need to create a Twitch account for your chatbot. Most streamers just add ‘bot’ to their Twitch username. Once you have that account set up, go back to Streamlabs Chatbot dashboard under Connections, and you’ll see Twitch Bot in the left-hand menu at the top. Click that, and set up the information like you did for Twitch Streamer with your Bot name and channel. Then generate your token and authorize it.
From there, you’ve got access to your dashboard and can customize it however you want – this means your bot can automatically host streams that you choose and can track news about followers, subscribers and more!
