Twitch begins testing paid functionality that mimics YouTube's Super Chat

Twitch has been dominating the news through various decisions that affect content creators. On the one hand, the well-known streaming platform ended the exclusivity with its Partners so that they could broadcast on other servicesbut this news was accompanied by a new distribution of profits that it especially hurts big streamers.

At this time, Elevated Chat will only be available for 4 weeks on US channels.Now, the service returns to the load with a functionality that many users will immediately recognize, since it is a payment system for viewers that, with the name of ‘Elevated Chat‘, allows us to highlight our message in the general live chat. At the moment, this option will only be available during 4 weeks and we will be able to see it on some American channels, but from USA we will not be able to participate in this first experiment.

Elevated Chat consists of 5 payment levels ranging from 5 dollars to highlight our message for 30 seconds and up to 100 dollars for this time to increase to 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The profits will be distributed in a proportion of 70/30 in favor of the streamer, taking into account fees and taxes.

We will be attentive to the development of this functionality, in case it ends up establishing itself as another Twitch mechanic after this first test. It should be remembered that this streaming platform is still the favorite of users, so we can expect more implementations that expand the experience of both viewers and content creators.
