Introduction to Notifications

For beginners

Streamer notifications are Streamcord's main feature. They allow you to receive an automated message whenever your favourite streamers go live. If you're interested in setting up your server as fast as possible, we recommend following the tutorial below:

For advanced users

Streamcord has two types of notification systems:

1. Spyglass notifications

Spyglass is the recommended system for stream notifications.

2. Legacy notifications

Legacy notifications will reach End of Life on November 4, 2021. We strongly recommend that you use Spyglass notifications instead.

Legacy notifications are the first version of Streamcord's notifications.

What is Stream end cleanup?

Stream end cleanup is a Spyglass feature that allows Streamcord to delete or edit the notification message, or send a new message when the stream ends.

With Streamcord Pro, a custom stream end message may be set.
