We launched Communities in February to help streamers find new viewers interested in their live video. Since then, streamers and viewers have created thousands of Communities, such as Fighting Games, Chill Streams, and Cosplay.
You’ve also given us tons of useful feedback. We kept your comments, suggestions, and requests in mind when building our latest feature, and now, we’re excited to announce that streamers can now broadcast to up to three Communities simultaneously!
Sometimes, a Game and a Community just aren’t enough to accurately let viewers know what your stream is about. By streaming to up to three Communities, you can better categorize your broadcast and reach more viewers who are interested in your content. That means broadcasting to VarietyStreaming, Speedrunning, and Positivity. Or, perhaps Drawing, Anime, and Watercolor. The possibilities are… not quite endless, but trust us, the number is really, really big.
To do this, simply select up to three Communities in the field in your dashboard. For any additional questions about how to stream to multiple Communities, please click here.
As always, Community leaders and moderators have the ability to ban or time-out streams that are not following Community rules, including miscategorization of content. If you stream to a creative Community, please ensure that you also select the Creative Game to ensure that you’re also listed there.
We hope you enjoy the ability to reach more viewers using Communities. Stay tuned for more updates based on your feedback!
