Omni Overlay (On-Screen)
The Muxy Overlay displays multiple apps that can be accessed via a toolbar that allow viewers to interact with a stream.
When their mouse is over the Twitch player, viewers will see a small toolbar on the player that controls the various interactive apps. Viewers can reposition the on-screen overlay elements, interact with them and toggle them on and off at their discretion.
Viewers’ clicks on the Twitch player are aggregated and then displayed as a heat map.
Clicks will be rendered in a provided visualization URL as a browser source. Clicks will disappear over time.
A good example of a way to use this in a broadcast is to see if viewers can collectively draw a specified image by clicking on the screen.
Viewers can impact the stream directly by spawning confetti and eventually other fun particle effects that will be aggregated and then rendered in a provided visualization URL as a browser source. Your visualization URL is found in the Overlay section of Twitch Extensions Manager of your Twitch Dashboard. The URL supports Confetti and Click Map.
Viewers can send confetti whenever they want and as frequently as they want and this will only display over the senders video player. The confetti explosion will fire after reaching a threshold (and no more frequently than once per minute) and will display on the visualization URL in OBS, displaying the explosion effect in the video stream for all viewers to see. As a broadcaster you can simply hide the visualization browser source to hide the confetti.
You can encourage viewers to use confetti to celebrate your wins or welcome new subscribers.
Viewers can express themselves easily with a simple and configurable binary gauge that acts as a voting mechanism.
Viewers can vote by clicking on the on-screen buttons. The gauge will display the average user sentiment over the video player for viewers and on the Twitch Dashboard for the broadcaster. The alternate gauge mode displays cheermotes instead of the dial to represent the current cheer average.
Broadcasters can make the Feels Meter pop up on viewers screens from the Twitch Dashboard. Viewers can open and close the meter at their discretion and the meter will close itself if the viewer doesn’t vote within 10 seconds.
You can use this during your stream to conduct a vote or ask a yes/no questions, such as “should I switch games now?”
Viewers from around the world can check in on an animated globe that displays all viewer entered locations as pins sticking out of the globe. Broadcasters may wipe out the location pins from the Twitch Live Dashboard to reset the globe.
You can use this during your stream to ask chat where they are watching from and see your geographic reach.

The Polls Overlay app allows broadcasters to display polls over the player. Broadcasters can create, view, and delete polls from the Twitch Dashboard and display them on the channel page. Viewers can view on-screen polls and vote by clicking on the poll choices. Poll results are visible after voting. Viewers can vote once per poll.
Pretzel is built from the ground up with streamers in mind. Pretzel curates a catalog of music that’s specifically licensed to be used while streaming.

A Pretzel account and either form of their music player (web or desktop) will be needed to use the Pretzel: Now Playing Overlay app. Pretzel is a music player that you can use on Twitch without fear of muted vods.
