The 10 Best Twitch Extensions

Released in the summer of 2017, Twitch Extensions are interactive 3rd party interactive overlays and panels, allowing streamers to open up a whole new world of fun, interaction information for their viewers and higher engagement from the streamer’s communities.

“Engage, grow, and surprise your audience with an interactive channel page” — Twitch

Initially a desktop only test, Twitch has now rolled extensions out to mobile and app users, and streamers can use multiple extension overlays too!

P.S. this list now has 12 extensions because they are all so useful…


How do you use and setup Twitch Extensions?

The Extension Manager is found within your dashboard where it shows a list of active and available extensions. Here you’ll be able to choose, setup, configure and activate your extensions on your stream or as a panel on your channel.

Twitch’s Extension manager gives you the opportunity to use which extensions you want, where you want and how you want. With a nearly unlimited list of extensions to choose from, where to do you start?

Why should you use Twitch Extentions?

Firstly, these are free features from Twitch (and dev partners) allowing your community and viewers to engage with your stream in a completely different way from just Twitch chat, or donating/subscribing.

It provides them with a way to engage with one another or something on screen during quieter gameplay, or during a ‘brb’ moment.

Twitch extensions can also be used to provide viewers with more information about you, your stream or help choose the content that’ll be broadcasted.

Why not use them?
