Why build video game chat with Stream?
Insightful Analytics

Leverage analytics collected from in-game chat to improve your social gaming experience, build a stronger community, and boost engagement metrics.

Typing Indicators

Typing indicators are pieces of visual feedback that help gamers prevent cross-talk over text chat and create a more natural flow to conversations that your players will love.

Group Chat

Compete with external messaging apps by enabling social players to chat with select groups through a user-friendly interface that mimics traditional messaging apps.

Message Reactions

Emoji reactions can be applied to specific messages and help gamers express the emotion behind every win and loss.

User Presence Indicator

Eliminate guesswork for gamers looking to play with friends. User presence indicators signify when they're online and prevent offline players from being spammed with messages.


Identify and eliminate trolls from your game by moderating abusive chatter with AI-based text and image moderation, blocklists, and a Stream-powered moderation dashboard.

Gamer chat data allows you to gain context around the actions that influence those metrics, broaden your player base, smooth out friction points within your video game, and stay competitive within the gaming marketplace.
