Twitch Hide Viewer Count

Things to Note

This feature doesn’t permanently hide your view count from yourself or anyone else. Everyone else will still be able to see your viewer count when you’re live as it only hides it on your Dashboard, not your channel page.

So, if you use your Dashboard for reading chat, this option can come in handy. It also doesn’t hurt to set a healthy rule with your community that you don’t want any discussions around view count in chat.

But what about if you’re using broadcasting software to monitor your chat and control your stream?
