Twitch continues to add new features for broadcasters to grow their communities. They recently announced a new Auto Host Feature that makes it easy to build and manage a list of channels to auto host when you’re offline.
It includes options for auto hosting members on your team, a personally curated list of streamers, and channels similar to yours.
Making Host Mode Better
This past Spring, Twitch experimented to see how they could improve Host Mode. They ran an auto host study and the result was overwhelmingly positive — Almost half of the streamers who used auto hosting saw 10% increases in their viewership and 97% of participants said they planned on continuing to use auto host.
Improving Host Trains
In the past, the problem with host trains was that they required a ton of coordination. Auto hosting streamlines the intent of host trains, since trains generally involve the same community of streamers repeatedly hosting each other. With auto host, just set up your list and you are good to go.
Auto hosting’s purpose is to enable communities to come together and grow together on Twitch.
