Twitch Continues Expansion Beyond Gaming

Twitch Launches Watch Parties To All Creators Worldwide

Twitch is looking to expand beyond gaming as it grows its audience. The platform is making its site more than just a place for live streaming gaming video, now rolling ‘Watch Parties’ to all creators. As reported by TechCrunch, they began testing Watch Parties last autumn and are now moving to a global launch for the feature.

“With the global expansion, Twitch streamers can host a Watch Party featuring any title that’s included with a Prime or Prime Video subscription in their region.”



The launch comes at a time when co-viewing experiences have been on the rise due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is no surprise that Facebook too has been pushing its Watch video platform.
