Twitch changed the game. Literally. The live streaming website became popular around 2012 and quickly developed into a dedicated platform for gamers to live-stream their gameplay to millions of daily viewers. It was this that kickstarted the eSports revolution which now sees professional gamers earning millions in prizes and sponsorships when competing in gaming tournaments.
With the latest version of Twitch apk for Android, you can easily choose the stream that you want to watch by selecting a trending game, or by searching for other categories such as art demos, how to videos, and of course, cat videos. What’s more, if you’ve got the skills to make a million then you can actually earn money each month by streaming on Twitch.
What’s this whole Twitch thing all about, anyway?
Basically, Twitch is the most popular platform to watch gamers doing their thing on. The platform was founded in 2011 as a part of Justin.tv, although it quickly became larger than its master and the whole company was rebranded around it. It was later purchased by Amazon, who now own it.
When you first visit the latest version of Twitch apk for Android, you’ll be greeted by some of the most popular streams available on the site, including PUBG, Fortnite, League of Legends, Hearthstone, Minecraft, and much more. You can simply press any one of these titles to open a page of live-streams by professional and amateur players alike. You’ll automatically see the most popular streams first, although you can change your preferences to see the most recent ones if you want.
On top of that, you can search for other games either by title in the search bar or by browsing through the many categories of games on the app. If you’re not looking exclusively for games, then you can also search for videos of people doing other things like art demos or how-to videos, as well as funny content that is perfect for a bit of procrastination.
Making money by playing games, really?
You’ve probably been told at one point or another in your life that you’re wasting too much time playing video games. Be it from a parent, a partner, or even from yourself, this is something that any dedicated gamer gets told once in a while by those who don’t share their passion for gaming.
Thing is, now with Twitch, you can actually earn up to more than $1,000 per month by gaming. All you have to do is make an account and a channel on Twitch, then start streaming yourself playing games. If you play 18 hours a week and you manage to build up just a few hundred followers, then you can earn hundreds of dollars.
This is an amazing way to turn your passion into an actual source of income. If you’re keen to try it out, then we recommend that you build a plan of what your channel will be, what games/content you’ll focus on, and maybe consider doing something niche to make yourself stand out from the crowd.
