Streamers and viewers of squads rejoice!
Twitch has finally rolled out the ability for streamers to broadcast together as a squad! Up to four streamers can have their streams appear in one nifty interface. Viewers can then watch every feed simultaneously while also having the ability to flip between each streamer’s chat.
Streaming with others has been a point of emphasis for me since I started. From the Boss Rush show, to Overwatch game nights, board game nights, to doing a full-on co-stream with Double Jump, there’s a magic that comes with hanging out with your friends. Without the infrastructure to support it, putting together any sort of streaming collaboration has been a pain. This doesn’t take away all of the issues, but it finally solves the issue of being able to see multiple viewpoints from different streamers in one place.
As of now, the feature is only available to Twitch Partners. However, there are plans to roll the feature out to Affiliate and regular streamers eventually. Can’t wait to finally get access to this so that my friends and I can squad up more easily!
