Amazon’s game video streaming service, Twitch, is going to feel a whole lot more like a social network in the coming months.
It’s launching a beta of a new Friends list feature that lets you add up to 500 contacts from the network and send them private messages, a.k.a. Whispers, at any time.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
The new feature builds on Twitch’s effort to help users connect with each other. It recently added a Channel Feed and Party Chat to its service, in addition to the Whispers system that launched last December.
