Twitch will now allow creators to stream on all live streaming services simultaneously, the company announced Friday. Tons of news from TwitchCon. Previously, streamers could cast simultaneously on their mobile platforms like TikTok and Instagram, but as of Friday, Twitch has significantly expanded the range in which streamers can live simultaneously. (Assuming the streamer does not have a Twitch exclusive contract.)
Lately, some Twitch streamers have been exploring options on other platforms. Major companies like xQc, Amoranthand nick marks This year, it signed a major deal with Twitch competitor Kick. xQc’s deal with Nickmercs is non-exclusive, and given that Amouranth has a video on her Twitch account from several months ago, it appears her deal is non-exclusive as well. Ninja terminates exclusive contract with Twitch In September 2022 Therefore, you can now cast on multiple platforms at the same time. (He dined with Twitch CEO Dan Clancy early this month and seems happy with Friday’s news. )
Twitch’s new simulcast policy has several guidelines. According to the support documentation. Streamers must ensure that the quality of their streams on Twitch is “comparable to experiences on other platforms and services.” Streamers “should not” share links to their Twitch community to simulcast on other platforms. (Streamers can still share links to third-party websites on their channel’s overview page, but they can’t link to other simulcasts while live on Twitch.) Unable to use party services. Do things like integrate chat across platforms.
Twitch has said that at some point in the future it will add tools that will allow streamers to indicate when they are simulcasting.
Twitch also revealed some product changes. Guest Star, which allows streamers to host collaborative streams with other users, will now be called Stream Together and add features such as the ability to combine chats. Twitch said it is testing a version of the TikTok-style Discovery Feed that shows live channels. Also, Twitch’s own alert system, which notifies you of notifications such as subscribers and Bits donations, will support streamers’ custom animated his emotes “soon.”
