Melon offers a few methods utilizing the chat feature:

  • Private - Chat privately with your guests only.
  • Stream - Chat publicly with your audience.
  • Widgets - Display your chatbox on-screen through integrated Apps. ( account required)

Private chat will never be live-streamed and will only involve yourself and your invited guests or speakers.


Stream chat is used to chat with your viewers. All comments from all supported destinations will autofill your Melon chat section.  

Chat Widget displays your chatbox on-screen, integrating a Streamlabs account and Widgets.
