The official guide to streams.place
This site contains details that go beyond basic usage of the Streams bot.
We’ve added a bunch of new features in this new version of Streams.
Web dashboard. This is a big one. You can now edit, create and delete Drops from the web. Just send the
/dashboard command to your bot to receive the link and login details.
Tags. You can create and use tags with the new /tag command. The web editor lets you edit them and set names and aliases (which let you use “/tag read” but have your tag show up as “Reading Log” on your Stream).
Subscriptions. You can create a Feed of your favourite Streams by subscribing to them from the web or using the /subscribe command.
More themes! Like, half a dozen more.
And most importantly…multiple Streams! You can now add the bot to a channel (but not groupchats!), and it will create a new Stream. This allows for multiplayer usage too, add people to your channel to make it a shared Stream.
