Twitch has recently unveiled their newest creation—a Twitch desktop app for both PC and Mac that will allow Twitch streamers to more efficiently connect with their viewers and audience.
Akin to the popular communication app Discord, Twitch Desktop allows for the creation of servers that are tied to Twitch channels/accounts, where streamers can connect with viewers through text and voice chat. The app also features the same Friends List functionality as Twitch’s website. Voice and video calls are also available from the get-go.
The app is now available, and is still only in beta. Only time will tell what additional features the Twitch developers will add in future updates.
