Twitch now allows its partnered streamers to live stream on several platforms when not live on Twitch. Twitch-affiliated streamers received an email informing them that they may now stream on Facebook, YouTube, and other streaming platforms.
“Starting today, you are now allowed to create live content on other platforms,” Twitch emails to the streamers.
The company has noticed streamers use more than one platform to interact with their communities. According to the email, this would be an excellent chance for them to get more viewers outside the platform.
Twitch emphasized that if a streamer is not online on Twitch, they are allowed to stream on Facebook, YouTube, and other live streaming services. Simulcasting is therefore strictly prohibited. Streamers are not permitted to Multi-Stream unless they do a multi-platform live stream on mobile platforms such as TikTok and Instagram.
“We believe engaging with two streams at once can lead to a sub-optimal experience for your community,”
By far the best move Twitch has made to its platform to benefit its streamers.
