Creators update, Beam & Interactive

If you just installed the Creators update for Windows 10 and plan on streaming to Beam, I recommend using some form of interactive controls – whether it be sound presses or real life robot maneuvers!

These interactive controls take advantage of Beam’s sub-second video latency, allowing crazy fucking streams that were not possible before due to technical limitations; I suggest taking advantage of this.

Here are just some of the tools available to get you started:
(If you need assistance, hop on the Streamer Spectrum Discord and yell!)

Keep in mind, interactive 2 is coming out soon and will grant the ability to do even crazier shit (more information can be found here).

Use the keyboard shortcuts below to get around quicker:
(These can be customized in Game bar settings.)

  • Open Game bar  |  Win + G
  • Start/pause broadcast  |  Win + Alt + B
  • Show camera in broadcast  |  Win + Alt + W
  • Microphone on/off  |  Win + Alt + M
  • Record that  |  Win + Alt + G
  • Start/stop recording  |  Win + Alt + R
  • Show recording timer  |  Win + Alt + T
  • Take screenshot  |  Win + Alt + PrtScrn

Hope these tools & tricks help – see you on Beam!
