I am trying to digitize in QGIS 3.14, and I have not been able to find an equivalent to the ArcGIS streaming tool.

Not sure if I am looking for the right terminology, but can't seem to find the right tool in QGIS.

This is my current advanced digitizing toolbar This is my current advanced digitizing toolbar
