Deepen & Improve "What My Viewers Like to Watch" Analytics
The feature in channel analytics -- "What categories do my viewers like to watch?" -- seems like it does not update daily. But, in general, we could use more information and focus on this, period.
Regarding the first request, can we get assurance this is updated daily, and if not can we make it daily? Knowing what our viewers like to watch and being able to continue to serve that is, perhaps, the most important metric of all. Having observed the metrics, it appears to me this data get a weekly refresh and then is only an average of those last 7 days. If, true, that boils down to only getting 4 updates per month, which is only so helpful.
If anything, viewers change their habits in real-time and trends happen. Ex. if they are all watching Tarkov because of the Drops, or they are watching GTA because of a new DLC (which you didn't notice), these trends must happen fast.
Additionally, we need more definition on what one of these "viewers" are as well. According to Twitch it's the following: ..."This shows the top games/categories viewed across all of your viewers. These are games that you may want to consider incorporating into future streams."
So, what is a viewer? Are they all of your followers? Are they someone that's viewed your stream actively within some period of time? But does it include non-followers?
As we can imagine, I'm sure many creators would want to know information about engaged viewers of their streams, but also subscribers and tippers, for example. Without getting in the weeds, this is just a note of the potential depth or prioritization that could be useful. I'd have a lot of ideas there (as well as metrics as whole).
SUMMARY: Is "What My Viewers Like to Watch" being updated daily? What is a "viewer" defined as? What will it take to prioritize this as a potential feature update to deepen?
Another additional note on the need to understand what "viewers" are defined as, and possibly dissecting that a bit. I often wonder: if I get a big raid does that affect the "categories your viewers watch" data? This would be more dramatic if a larger streamer community raids a smaller one. For example, let's say I barely play Minecraft. But I get raided by a community 5x my size. Could that single raid suddenly make Minecraft show up on my categories data, or are those people not considered viewers unless they followed? Or came back more than once?
Bumping this. We now know these analytics are what "...your viewers spent x% of their watch time watching these categories over the past 7 days".
Again, this is not useful for trends and major game releases. A recent example or two: Stray is a 5-10 single-player game about a cat. It blew up for about a week. In this case, you would only know your viewers possibly stopped watching you and started watching a major new game an entire week later. This is far too long.
At a minimum, we need a rolling daily update to this. (It seems like it only updates once every 7 days). But the ideal would be a view of the last 24 hours to help you identify trending directories and games before it's too late.
