Streamlabs gives you full freedom in starting off your stream. Once again go to the “Editor” tab and choose what you want – Go Live or Record.
Adding Widget & Themes
Many would not agree with me, especially after what I’m about to say – Setting up widget & themes are the hardest part. Even more than learning to use the Streamlabs app.
Well, I believe if you’ve passed the 1st step, the second one is not far away. It’ll take some to getting use to but you’ll prevail in the end. Now, to add the widgets and themes, go the “Add Source” tab in the Streamlabs app. And there you’ll see a widget menu along with some options.

To switch to some other theme, head over to the “Themes” tab & you’re good to go. Even if you’ve not yet purchased the prime Streamlabs membership, Streamlabs offer some amazing themes. Customize them or install them as it is, the final choice is yours.
