The entertainment industry has changed dramatically during this past couple of years. No one feels the need to sit in front of the TV and go through countless commercials in order to watch their favorite shows when they can simply stream them on their smartphones or PCs instead. Apps such as YouTube and Netflix have taken over the entertainment industry but Twitch is the one that brings the biggest change.
Twitch gives gamers from all over the world a platform where they can stream themselves and the games that they love playing the most. The streaming platform is highly popular among teenagers and successful streamers such as the famous Ninja who plays Fortnite on a regular basis is making millions of dollars every year on Twitch.
Nonetheless, considering that Twitch is used by millions of people on a daily basis, the developers who are in charge of the streaming platform are making sure that the performances that Twitch offers are always of premium quality and in order to do that, they keep releasing software updates. Therefore, the reason why Twitch is making headlines today is because a brand-new update has just arrived.
New Twitch Beta Update
The latest update for Twitch sports the 7.11.0 version number and the developers are rolling it out right now. Even though the update is rolling out via official OTA (over the air) channels, not all Twitch users are going to receive it right now since the update is available in the beta form. This means that all interested Twitch users who want to access the new update are required to enroll in the beta program of the streaming platform.
The last thing that we want to note about Twitch’s new update is that it comes with a handful of bug fixes which serve the sole purpose of enhancing the streaming platform’s overall software stability and lowering the chances of random crashes.
