Logitech just bought the software of choice for many top streamers

Streamlabs, which is based in California, offers streamers a robust set of tools to be able to broadcast to Twitch, YouTube, Mixer and Facebook. Its app allows users to process and track tips, as well as to read the chat in their room on a single screen with an in-game overlay. It also gives them access to themes and streaming applications that can up their game.
