StreamLens is a browser extension that helps you follow your favorite streamers across multiple supported streaming platforms. Easily connect your Twitch or Mixer accounts to import your followed streams automatically. The StreamLens toolbar button provides you with an at-a-glance count of live broadcasts and, when clicked, expands to show a list of streamers from which you can choose to start watching.
Install the extension for free from the Chrome or Firefox extension marketplace:
- After installing the extension, the StreamLens button should be visible in your browser toolbar.
- Clicking the button should reveal the live streams panel. Since you haven't yet connected any accounts, click the "Connect Accounts" button to proceed to the extension settings page.
- On the settings page, choose among the available supported platforms to link an account.
- After connecting one or more accounts, the toolbar button and corresponding popup will immediately update to show your followed streams currently live (if any).
