Twitch was the first live streaming platform to make a name for itself, and it is still popular today, with an average of 15 million active daily users. Although we’ve seen an increase in the number of gaming video streaming platforms (and live streaming platforms in general, such as YouTube and Facebook), Twitch is still a good contender for the title of the most popular live streaming platform.
💬 What is Twitch?
Twitch was launched in 2011 as the gaming content spin-off of the live video streaming website Justin.tv. In 2014, Amazon bought Twitch for $970 million, and today, it’s one of the most popular sites on the web for watching and streaming live video content, gaming or otherwise.
🦑 Twitch and Restream.io
Multistreaming + Twitch
Learning how to multistream on Twitch gives you more choices. Content creators can use multistreaming to safely test their content on other platforms and in front of different audiences. Restream makes it incredibly easy, and it comes with native support for Twitch. If you want to get the most out of your content, try using Restream to multistream on Twitch.
Restream Chat + Twitch
On Twitch, streamers can communicate directly with the audience, regardless of their status and star power. Handling several chat windows while multistreaming on Twitch can be difficult, however. Restream Chat consolidates your chat windows into one dashboard and allows the audience to communicate with each other, even if they’re on different platforms.
Restream Analytics + Twitch
For some Twitch streamers, live streaming is a business, and in business, you make good decisions by getting as much relevant data as possible and analyzing it. Restream Analytics provides you with powerful insights into your Twitch streaming — and other platforms you multistream to as well. It shows everything from watch time to the phrases trending in the chat.
Restream Events + Twitch
Does every live stream need to be live? Not exactly. With Restream Events, you can create and edit a video and schedule it to go live on Twitch. Twitch isn’t the platform known for high production value, so streaming a polished video might make you stand out. It also lets you devote all your time to engaging with your audience instead of streaming.
Restream Studio + Twitch
Although live streaming on Twitch can be pretty foolproof, it still requires the right software and setup. With Restream Studio, you can go live on Twitch — and your other favorite platforms — in a matter of a few clicks. Our browser-based live streaming solution requires no downloads and has plenty of customization options to make your Twitch stream your own.
