Twitch sets its own record – Esporlab.com
Twitch, the popular live streaming platform, has developed its own record. Twitch achieved 2.1 billion hours of views in April 2021.
Twitch, one of the first platforms that come to mind when it comes to live broadcasting, was one of the places where more viewers met, especially during the pandemic period. The Twitch platform continues to grow recently, especially with GTA Online.
Twitch, owned by Amazon, has again developed its own viewer record. According to April data, the Twitch platform reached more than 2.1 billion hours of views. According to the data, Facebook Gaming continues to tour around 360,000 million hours watched in the last three months after breaking its own record at the start of the year.
Most of these viewers for the Twitch platform came from the steady growth of Just Chatting, a category that covers 283 million hours watched alone. The only other category that came close was the Grand Theft Auto V game and GTA Online game, which were released in 2013 and continue to constantly expand its audience.
Behind its steadily growing base of role-playing players, GTA V finished with 236 million hours watched in April, a 30 percent increase from the previous month. Call of Duty: Warzone and Dota 2 games are seen as other games growing. Fortnite, Apex Legends and CS: GO games were the games that decreased in terms of the number of views.
Once again, xQc remained the undisputed king of Twitch, with roughly 30 million hours watched in April, according to Twitch April 2021 data. This number doubles all other publishers on the platform except Ludwig, Gaules, summit1g, RanbooLive, and NICKMERCS.
As for the biggest growth, according to Twitch data, juansguarnizo made its debut among the top 10 most-watched channels in April thanks to its growing audience and the continued support of the GTA V role-playing community.
Another major growth area on the Twitch platform was the Sports category, which left behind 10 million watched hours for the first time in April. It continues to grow with the Twitch Sports Accelerator Program and upcoming Olympics-focused content.
