On Twitch, content creators not only allow their viewers to participate in daily streams. Some of them also host streams for charity. Twitch now wants to help with a new integrated functionality and is now inviting select broadcasters to a beta version of Twitch Charity.
The Twitch streaming platform wants to introduce a new feature and is currently inviting testers to a beta version. The new option is a built-in charity streaming feature that will be called Twitch Charity. This should allow content creators to set up and run a charity stream with just a few clicks.
Charity streams on Twitch should be simplified
As Twitch writes in a new blog post, streamers should be able to select a charity on the creator’s dashboard, set a donation goal and start their own campaign. Your broadcast will automatically switch to Charity Mode. A new Donate to Charity button will also appear for viewers.
For the new feature, Twitch has partnered with the Paypal Giving Fund, assuring that all donations from the community must go to the charity chosen by the operator. The streaming platform must not withhold any portion of donations and therefore not benefit from tax breaks. If there are any issues, Paypal Giving Fund should take care of support.
The new feature aims to make fundraising for charity easier and more transparent. Support from viewers should be simpler, clearer, and more effective with the next option. Some operators have now been invited to the beta version. A limited number of charities will initially be available, but will be expanded in the future.
Recently, Twitch reported that a file Wanting to lower the maximum payments for his banners. Instead of at least $100 as before, the new limit will be $50 in the future. This should lead to more regular payouts, which smaller broadcasters should also benefit from.
