Twitch Users Can Now Simultaneously Stream on Other Platforms

In the recent TwitchCon Las Vegas event, Twitch announced that content creators will be allowed to simultaneously stream on other broadcasting services such as Kick, YouTube, and Facebook. 

Amazon-owned live-streaming platform also shared some guidelines, emphasizing that concurrent streaming will be permitted as long as the user experience on Twitch remains unaffected.

The company further stated that unless a content creator has an exclusive agreement with the platform, they will have the ability to broadcast content live on other platforms. However, linking to external websites or redirecting viewers to them is not allowed.

Twitch also pointed out that content creators can use software to integrate chats or activities from other platforms, but these activities cannot be displayed on the stream.

While Twitch was known for its strict policies regarding multi-platform streaming, this year, the company has eased some of the rules, allowing users to share live content on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok.

Additionally, the streaming platform has renamed the upcoming "Guest Star" feature to "Stream Together," making it easier for up to six content creators to collaborate during live broadcasts. For those uninterested in video, there is also an audio-only mode that allows guests to join the chat without needing to turn on their cameras.

In recent weeks, Twitch has rolled out new features such as the option to prevent banned users from viewing their streams and a feature somewhat akin to Instagram Stories.
