Animated Just Chatting Overlays / Chat Overlays
If the recent past has shown one thing, livestreaming is now more than just broadcasting games. Many creators on Twitch, YouTube, and other platforms are increasingly focusing on pure entertainment through interaction with live chat. The just chatting category on Twitch, in particular, has been the undefeated number 1 of all stream categories for over a year. This way of entertaining an audience opens up new opportunities for entertainers who want to stream beyond the gaming theme. But what should the design of a stream that isn't about video games look like? Our exclusive Just Chatting overlays were explicitly created for this purpose! Enter the world of live entertainment and give your stream a modern, timeless and unique design with OWN3D's Just Chatting overlays.
What are Just Chatting overlays?
Any design element placed directly on top of your streamed content is commonly referred to as an overlay. Overlays help you as a creator to design your stream and stand out from other streamers. Whether they are images or animated video elements, it doesn't matter.
Just Chatting overlays are stream designs whose concept is not visually based on any particular theme. They usually enhance the look of your content and provide the viewer with an orderly and uncluttered look. While many overlays are designed for gaming, we offer a massive selection of Just Chatting overlays that fit perfectly into your stream. The Just Chatting overlays give you the perfect frame for your content and space to showcase your latest followers, donations, subs, and co.
Why should I stream Just Chatting?
For over a year, the Just Chatting category, a subcategory of IRLon Twitch, has remained unbroken at #1. While the popularity of games varies, Just Chatting is guaranteed to always be on the winner's throne.
As the name suggests, this category is for chatting with the chat. You can set a topic, interact with your community, or just chit-chat.
So if you prefer to talk comfortably with the chat, like to discuss specific topics or reaction content is your thing, then the Just Chatting category is the right one for you. Remember, though, that thousands of content creators are in the same category. Many streamers start with Just Chatting before switching categories and streaming a game. It takes that special something to stand out among all the motivated streamers. That's where Twitch Just Chatting overlays help you. They are a real eye-catcher and might make one or the other viewer click on your stream rather than one who is just streaming a facecam.

Due to the knowledge that our colleagues on Twitch, YouTube, and other platforms have acquired in this category, we know what you need.

What's in a Just Chatting overlay package?
Just chatting overlays with matching labels
When you're in the Just Chatting category, it's usually not enough to point a camera at you in full-screen mode and start talking. Since you're the focus and don't have gameplay or anything else filling the screen, it's essential to make the design of your livestream even more inviting. For example, with our Just Chatting overlays, you can add the chat directly to the stream or give your latest followers, donations, and more in a descriptive place. This, in turn, leads to more variety and a significant lightening of the overall look. In addition, your viewers are motivated by their names being displayed on your stream to perform one or the other action live in the stream, such as donations, followers, subscriptions, likes, and more.
Start, break, end and offline banners
Streams tend to get longer and longer. That's why taking a break during your stream is incredibly important. But especially in the just chatting area, this can lead to viewers switching off or new viewers looking for another stream to watch. After all, if you take a break but leave your chat with a screen where nothing is happening, viewers might get bored. That's why we recommend you use Intermission banners for special scenes that will provide variety even during breaks, pick up your viewers at the beginning and provide a good finale at the end. In addition, the start, break, end, and offline banners also fit perfectly with the rest of your channel's design.
Just Chatting stream alerts
Besides overlays, it's also crucial to have alerts enabled for your stream. These are displayed when, for example, a fan subscribes to your channel or leaves you a follow. Donations via the donation page can also be linked to alerts so that you can automatically thank them immediately. With activated Just Chatting alerts, which also match the rest of your livestream design, you are always on the safe side, keep an eye on all activities, and create an incentive for your viewers to support you. Just Chatting alerts have often been used to generate tidal waves of support.
Animated scene transitions
Depending on how you set up your stream, you might have to switch between different scenes in just chatting streams. For example, this would be when you switch from Just Chatting to the game or take a short break. You can use so-called animated scene transitions to make the transition between these scenes less abrupt. These are an important link between the individual scenes and are included in every Just Chatting overlay package.
A complete design for your stream channel
Use profile banners,Twitch panels, profile pictures, and other graphics to create a consistent style on your stream channel. If your channel matches the content, you create a real recognition value.
