Twitch recently launched a new product, Drops. Drops is a program that will help you increase a game’s engagement and retention by rewarding players for engaging with your game on Twitch.
It enables in-game items or “Drops” to your gaming community natively within the Twitch viewing experience.
The program is powered by the Viewer Heartbeat Service and Twitch Identity.T witch will report game viewing activity to you, enabling you to reward your viewers and broadcasters.
Twitch will be showcasing Drops at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) this year. They will display the tech, explain how it works, and help you sign up to learn more and participate.
