Alerts allow you to see card redemptions, purchases, emotes, and reactions in your overlay. You can also customize them to suit your stream.
To add an alert in OBS, follow these steps:
- Go to Sources
- Select Add Browser Source
- Add the URL found in Alerts & Widgets
Lastly, you will also find a Test Card option in Alerts & Widgets that allows you to test purchases and card alerts (a new browser window will open).
The Emotes alert URL is separate, and you can find it in Subscriptions > General Settings. To set it up, create another Browser Source and add the URL.
If you're having issues configuring your alerts, please refer to this article.
