In a recent announcement at TwitchCon Paris, the popular streaming platform Twitch revealed a host of new features aimed at enhancing user experience. The company is set to introduce significant upgrades to its Clip Editor, a Discovery feed, and several other additions.
The Clip Editor will now include trimming functionality, allowing users to edit their clips with greater precision. In addition, Twitch is extending access to video editors, enabling them to make changes directly. This move is expected to streamline the editing process and improve the quality of content on the platform. Furthermore, the Clip Editor will also be made available on mobile devices, making it more accessible for users on the go.
Another major introduction is the Discovery Feed. This feature will present users with a scrollable feed within the app, showcasing a personalized mix of Clips. Once implemented, viewers will have the opportunity to discover Clips from a wide array of streamers’ channels, regardless of whether they are live or not. The company stated that this investment in Clips aims to help viewers discover new channels and join their communities during streams.
Starting in August, Twitch will allow users to mark Clips as featured in their Creator Dashboard. This feature will provide creators with an additional tool to highlight their best content and attract more viewers.
In addition to these features, Twitch is also introducing the ‘stories’ format to the platform. This feature is designed to help users reach their entire community reliably, whenever they wish. The company is also planning to launch ‘streaming together’ for Guest Star.
To further enhance the streaming experience, Twitch is introducing a chat countdown timer. This optional feature will notify streamers precisely when an ad is about to appear, with options to snooze or pull ahead. This feature is expected to give streamers more control over their broadcasts.
These updates reflect Twitch’s commitment to improving its platform and providing its users with a more engaging and personalized streaming experience.
