Twitch announced today that they will be releasing major updates to their Emotes this month to celebrate their 10th anniversary These new features will include animated emoticons, follower emoticons and emoticon library

Since the origin of the live streaming platform for gamers, emoticons, Twitch's version of emojis, are a key part of Twitch culture. They are micro-memes, and images like Kappa, TriHard et PogChamp ont un sens dans le grand monde du jeu, même en dehors de la plate-forme Twitch.

Les émoticônes sont un langage qui transcende les pays”, a déclaré Ivan Santana, directeur principal des produits communautaires chez Twitch « Où que vous soyez dans le monde, ils signifient la même chose pour nous

La plate-forme appartenant à Amazon ajoute régulièrement de nouvelles émoticônes globales, qui peuvent être utilisées sur n’importe quelle chaîne de streamer Les créateurs individuels peuvent créer des émoticônes personnalisées pour leur propre communauté, that paid subscribers can use across the platform But the ability to add animated gifs as emoticons is something the community has been asking for since Santana remembers

“I've been with Twitch for four years, and this is something people have been asking for before i joined them”, Santana told TechCrunch « It certainly looks very, long time” 

Streamers who lack animation skills need not worry While the more tech-savvy among us can download custom gifs, Twitch will provide six models for streamers to choose from, who can animate their existing emoticons. These animations include Shake, Rave, Roll, Spin, Slide In and Slide Out Viewers sensitive to animation will be able to disable the feature in their chat settings

Twitch is also beta testing follower emoticons, which will be available to certain partners and affiliates This feature creates a fun, free incentive for viewers to hit the follow button on a channel they might first visit When viewers follow a channel, they are notified when the creator broadcasts, which may result in a possible Twitch subscription taking 50% money from streamers subscriptions, creating a valuable source of income for the business

In the first quarter of 2021, Twitch viewership hits all-time high, with an increase of 165% since the previous quarter Twitch viewers watched 634 billion hours of content in the first quarter, is 723% market share This is double the total number of hours watched on Twitch in the first quarter of 2020 Facebook Gaming and YouTube Gaming got 121% and 156% sector audience respectively

“Since a long time, creators are asking for better ways to attract and welcome new viewers to their channel”, said Santana. « L’idée est généralement de créer beaucoup d’enthousiasme autour de cette communauté et, ultimately, plus de sentiments de communauté.

Les créateurs disposant d’un accès bêta pourront télécharger jusqu’à cinq émoticônes pour leurs abonnés, mais contrairement aux émoticônes des abonnés, les abonnés ne pourront pas les utiliser sur d’autres canaux Il n’y a aucune garantie que les émoticônes suiveuses seront là pour resterSantana dit que c’est une fonctionnalité avec laquelle Twitch « expérimente » – mais si tout se passe bien, la fonctionnalité sera déployée plus largement plus tard dans l’année

Finally, the Library feature will make it easier for creators to swap emotes in and out of subscription tiers without having to delete them and download them again each time This builds on an upgrade launched in January, which centralized channel-specific icons in an Emotes tab on the creator's dashboard. As usual, new Emotes must be approved by Twitch before being used The library will soon be rolled out to all partners and affiliates, phased over a few months to take into account an expected increase in the volume of new Emotes

Au fur et à mesure que Twitch s’est développé, nous avons maintenant des millions de communautés dans de nombreuses cultures différentes à travers le monde”, said Santana « Nous pouvons confier davantage de contrôles de notre langage Emote à notre communauté et les laisser évoluer d’une manière que nous n’aurions jamais pu imaginer et qui les sert finalement à leur manière.

Twitch a annoncé qu’il y avait plus en préparation pour célébrer le 10e anniversaire de la plate-forme, y compris une célébration officielle des 10 years
