As we know discoverability on Twitch is not great, if we want to get discovered we need to make and upload content to YouTube, which while better is still not great to get discovered with how over saturated the content is on there. This is why I want to bring this idea forward.
Much like Instagram to share photos and videos in a wide space to discover things that get recommended based on what you look at and who you follow this would be just for Twitch clips and Highlight.
Twitch Discover - An app where you login with your Twitch to create your profile, from this you can click upload and it will bring up clips and highlights of your channel to upload.
Within your settings you select the categories you are interested in i.e. Fortnite, Valorant, Call of Duty etc and then in the Discover tab you only see Clips and Highlights of the selected categories. On these clips and highlights you can go to the persons profile to follow them which also follows them on Twitch so they can check them out when they are live.
When a person is live their profile can show a live symbol to let people know they are so they can come over and check them out right away.
Even if a person is not a streamer they can still make an account in order to browse the discover tab to find new people to watch.
Here is a quick 2 minute video of me explaining the idea if it helps give a better idea: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1157990843
This is a brilliant idea Tolley, and Twitch should take notice. This idea that you have is the best one out of all the other ideas that Twitch is trying to, and failing with, rolling out.
This can help bring communities together
This is beyond a smart idea. Not only would this help Twitch maintain viewership moving into the future. It would increase traffic and allow people to have simple easy ways to share highlights, clips, uploads, etc.
Additionally for Twitch this helps retain excusivity for future creators and current creators. A feedback loop that will both help the company and the streamer. Love this idea Tolley!
this is a smart idea its a youtube for twitch
social growth and social media growth we all know and can tell from twitch platform this is not a platform that favors in equal platform viewership and its based of who ever has the highest viewers to the lowest this is understandable but does not add ( flavor ) to the so called app, twitch needs to incorporate the options of all social media links to be available immediately to twitch's as a share option too all platforms ,
i would like to express i am not "promoting"( TikTok in anyway but as far as i have seen the way their apps algorithm works is it shows you feed based on what you have watch previously wether a person a category or a topic the function works and a immediately not sat after viewer ship content just gets feeded to you and everyone gets more of a fair chance) twitch has this with the suggestions option but i think when you click into the game categories instead of higher to lowest viewership it should show live feed as well as content post on twitch like creators content clips and also live channels with hashtag links and switch it up with most time streamed or rand surge from different streamers promoting more options to people with camera and non camera who been pushing more content streaming more or what people like comdey completive trolling etc
