Twitch is one of the world’s leading streaming services. This app, which is owned by Amazon, offers live streaming of hundreds of themed channels mainly focused on the world of video games. Although it was born as a way to broadcast live gameplays, it has now become a multipurpose tool that viewers can use to interact with their favorite streamers’ videos in real-time.
Twitch is divided into different thematic categories. These categories are organized depending on the game being played. Each channel includes live streaming and stored clips, live chats, and most importantly, a way to subscribe and start making donations to the channel through the platform’s own currency, the so-called ‘bits’.
But the fun doesn’t end there. One of the main features that’s unique to the desktop client is that it lets you manage your video game library. Twitch Prime (the platform’s subscription service) offers, among other things, free videogames every month. Just keep in mind that you need to install the desktop version in order to play them.
Without a doubt, Twitch has changed the way we understand and interact with video game streaming and content creators. The dynamic nature of the platform offers a real alternative to the way users watch television and videos, as well as an open window to the world so that both gamers and users with alternative interests can share their passions and concerns.
