Twitch has announced that its Twitch Studio streaming software is now available in open beta on the Mac platform. The platform, which has been available only on Windows, allows users to stream live directly to Twitch.
Twitch Studio’s biggest selling point is its ease of use, as it is much easier to use than other streaming software, such as Streamlabs OBS.
The highlights of Twitch Studio are as follows:
- Easy setup: With guided onboarding, automatic hardware detection, and recommended settings, you’ll get step-by-step setup for the best quality stream. Our built-in desktop audio capture capability also lets you easily share audio from your web browser or computer directly to your stream, no extra configuration required.
- Twitch integration: Twitch Studio has everything you need to start interacting with your audience, including built-in alerts and chat integration.
- Customization: Easily personalize the look and feel of your stream with different layouts (such as a full-screen webcam layout perfect for chatting with your community), and customize how your stream sounds by adding multiple audio devices. You can even mix up your content by connecting your iPhone or iPad and sharing the screen to your stream. Look out for even more customization options that we’ll be rolling out soon.
The Twitch Studio open beta for Mac is now available as a free download here. The company says it is continuing to invest in Twitch Studio and improve the experience for both current and new streamers, so there will be more features coming throughout the year. Users can contact the Twitch team on Discord if they have any questions or suggestions.
