      Lets check the Features comparison between OBS vs Streamlabs

      If you are new to streaming and have a powerful PC, go with Streamlabs. If you have a low-end PC, you should invest in OBS because it does not impact the computer’s performance and is highly customizable.


      Both come with an auto-game detection feature to detect the active game automatically. Below are the features unique to both apps.

      Streamlabs OBS pros

      Built-in-chat: Streamlabs offers a built-in chat feature with a web-based chatbot to filter out spam. On OBS, you need to install a plugin to enable chat.
