Nobody can stop Twitch from being the ONLY live streaming first choice for gamers. Just today, the popular streaming platform, Twitch, just announced Extensions.

Extensions on Twitch opens a whole new world of possibilities for game streamers. Soon, streamers will be able to integrate all the necessary extensions to interact with their audience and enhance their broadcasting experience.

Based on the feature video, integration with popular games such as LOL, Overwatch and Destiny 2.

Growth and community interaction are two of the central features of Twitch Extensions. Featuring and appreciating streamers’ community leaders will be much easier with this brand new feature. Launching polls and perhaps hosting raffle while in-game may be done as well.

Once the new feature goes live, Extensions Manager will be made available to all partner streamers where all available extensions may be downloaded and installed to your stream. Most of the extensions may be put as an overlay on your streams, so it should be compatible on Xsplit, OBS or even BEBO.
