Twitch Continues Expansion Beyond Gaming with Global Roll Out of Watch Parties

While Facebook continues to push its video platform, Twitch is also looking to expand its content options and grow its audience. Twitch has seen a significant rise in its “Just Chatting” channels which see popular Twitch streamers interacting with fans, without having to game. The just chatting streams are now more popular than the gaming categories which have resulted in Twitch adding another option to the platform called “Beyond Gaming”. This will enable users to stream movies and TV content with their fans. The movie or TV show will be playing in the main window of the screen with the host in a smaller video screen at the top right above the group chat, allowing the host to interact with their fans whilst watching.

Statista stated:

“The number of total hours streamed on the platform nearly doubled from February to May. With roughly 980 million hours watched in February, May obliterated that mark with over 1.7 billion hours.” 

Of course this is still a long way off from other video streaming platforms such as Youtube and TikTok, however, Twitch’s viewer count is continually growing. For brands looking to grow their online presence, Twitch could be another platform to consider. Will Twitch explode the same way TikTok has?
