An (almost) essential accessory for any streamer, the Elgato Stream Deck is being updated in version 5.0 which notably brings support for countless third-party plugins.

Via the Stream Deck Store, users of this connected touch interface will be able to access resources aimed at improving the quality of their broadcasts, various and varied plug-ins, as well as royalty-free music and sound effects.

A suite of tools to improve content

The Stream Deck Store is broken down into five distinct sections that make it easy to navigate. First is “Discover”, which simply lists the latest Elgato news that may be of interest to streamers.

Then comes “Plugins”, offering access to more than 100 plugins that can be installed with a click on your Stream Deck. It includes tools for automation, voice modification or home automation such as Philips Hue. Plugins are free, but may require purchase in app to activate all its features (like Voicemod). Elgato also assures that it will fill its store more in the coming weeks. A development kit (SDK) is available for developers who would like to design their own plugins and list them on the Stream Deck Store.

Other section: “Icons”. As its name suggests, it brings together icon packs inspired by brands or certain video games to customize the appearance of its Stream Deck.

The last two parts of the store, “Music” and “Sound Effects”, bring together royalty-free music and sound libraries that can be used free of charge by creators in order to escape the famous DMCA requests that are more and more numerous on Twitch ( in particular) in the event of the distribution of a piece of music protected by copyright.

Stream Deck 5.0 can already be downloaded from the manufacturer’s official website.
