Among the content watched, games such as Grand Theft Auto V, League of Legends and VALORANT reached huge viewing figures. Just Chatting, one of Twitch’s most popular categories, experienced its first decline in monthly viewership.
Just Chatting continued to be at the top of the table with 279 million hours watched, a decrease of 1 percent compared to the number of viewers in April.

Apex Legends sees a significant increase in the number of views in May, increasing by 33 percent in total, reaching 61 million hours watched.
