Why Develop Extensions on Twitch?

Twitch has a large viewership and they are highly engaged (15 million daily active users and 355 billion minutes watched in 2017). This means there is a high potential to get a lot of visibility building on Twitch.

With millions of people gathering on Twitch every day, developers have the opportunity to create new ways to consume and contribute to live programming with Twitch Extensions.

There is lots of enthusiasm for Extensions from our community of viewers and chatters. Since launch, just over a year ago, people have interacted with Extensions over 4.9 BILLION times.

There’s a full set of developer tools for Extensions, enabling developers to build these immersive experiences easily and quickly.

There’s a direct opportunity for developers to monetize on Twitch. Bits-in-Extensions enables viewers to show support to the streamer, enhance gameplay, or express themselves. Streamers and developers share the revenue generated from these Bits.
