Twitch Implements Auto Hosting

Twitch Auto Host

Are you trying to meet and connect with new streamers? Want to help your streaming community grow? You should check out this new upgrade to Host Mode called Twitch auto host. Host mode has been around for two years now, with streamers manually having to input in their chat “/host ChannelName” to let their viewers watch another stream. Now, you can set up a playlist of streamers you want to support that will automatically rotate whenever you are offline.

Did you know that almost half of the streamers who used auto hosting saw 10% increases in their viewership?

How to Use Twitch Auto Host

Head over to your Twitch Channel Settings panel and scroll down to the Auto Hosting section. From here you can turn on or off auto hosting and add a group of streamers to your host list. You can also choose to turn on Team Hosting which will automatically host members of your main Twitch team. Hosting is a great way to provide entertainment to your viewers while they are waiting for you to go live. Another option is selecting between host priority or randomly. Host priority will host channels by the order they appear on your list.Twitch Priority Hosting
