Been a couple of days thinking about the new feature on Twitch that displays your favorited channel’s live hosts. For those unfamiliar, “Hosting” on Twitch allows you broadcast another broadcaster’s stream on yours when you go offline. A pretty nifty feature that has been met with approval by the community. As for displaying live hosts by your favorite Twitch broadcasters, it’s definitely a step in the right direction that further expands and connects hosting and following.
If this feature were to be expanded in the future, I would like to see Twitch also display the entire list of streamers a broadcaster adds to his “Host List” (up to 3 streams can be queued for hosting) to show up on the “Live Hosts” section. It doesn’t have to show a preview for all of them, just list them after the currently hosted channel. Simple, right? It would definitely help in terms of more exposure for fellow broadcasters and viewers discover even more channels that they might enjoy. Cheers to this update!
