Unfortunately, when you are streaming directly from your console you do not have the option to implement a browser source in your stream. The Sound Alerts browser source is required to use Sound Alerts on your stream. However, you have the option to use one of Elgato's capture devices to capture your gameplay to your PC or Laptop and stream with any streaming software from your PC. By doing this, you have way more options and freedom for streaming, using plugins, addons, and more.

If you do not own a PC there you can alternatively use one of the Cloud Streaming Software such as Lightstream.

Using Elgato Capture Devices

Elgato's website and devices can be found here

Compatible with most streaming software are the Elgato hd60s, hd60s+, hd60 Pro, and 4K60 Pro.
