Add support for Co-op Streaming on twitch
Currently on twitch Cooperative streaming and combining communities is a widely used concept to have two streamers join together on one stream. It would be very beneficial to add support for such a workflow via creating a dashboard option to add another streamer as a co-host for the stream. This could allow users to follow both streamers if they are enjoying the content, instead of just the one who is broadcasting.
I would love this option, Mixer has this option and it is brilliant setup, when it is a co-stream the chats merge together, when costream ends they split up again.
Also the fact if i look at streamer a or streamer b i see the same screens and optional to follow them.
I really miss this option to co stream with my friends and hope it will be implemented.
Would give twitch a boost for many streamers and friends, making banter with chat/viewer a lot more attractive and fun
What about something like discord is doing: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Cz0_GY0UAAA56_M.jpg
The idea is called "GROUP STREAMING" Where you invite other streamers to join you in your broadcast. From there, viewers can go on one persons stream and at the bottom of their stream you see small scale thumbnail sized version of their video. You click on any of those thumbnails and it replaces the current stream you are watching with the one you just clicked and you replace the old streamers chat with the new one. I think this is the easiest and best way you could go about this.
I love co-op streams, especially when the streamers have good on stream chemistry. It can turn a great stream into an amazing stream with the banter. I am a new caster and would love to eventually be able to enjoy a feature that made it easier to do.

I love watching co-op streams. Let's make this happen!!
This is a great idea, and I say this as both a caster and a viewer. It could potentially solve some problems I have trying to watch via multitwitch on a bad internet connection or on my low powered laptop.
Yes! We need this so bad! The community opportunities this could provide would be massive!
I love this idea! As a new caster who enjoys doing co-op streaming it would be extremely beneficial to all parties involved.
