Twitch is currently the world’s biggest online streaming platform, especially for gamers. The Amazon-owned service boasts of over 2.2 million unique monthly streamers and an excess of 292 billion minutes of content watched. Heck, even the rapper Drake was recently found streaming on Twitch. So, if you’ve been thinking of starting your own Twitch channel, but are unsure on how to go about doing so, read on, as we show you how to stream games on Twitch using your PC, gaming console, or even a smartphone:

How to Stream on Twitch (Sections):

Note: While all of the following methods make use of a third-party app, it goes without saying that you will be requiring a Twitch account. In case you don’t already have one, you can sign-up for Twitch here. Also, while PC/Console gaming can be streamed natively (as shown in the article below), we recommend using a capture card.

How to Stream on Twitch from PC

1. First off, you need to open your Twitch account in a browser and head over to Dashboard. Now, in the Live tab, fill out a Title for your stream, choose the game which you want to broadcast and select the Communities you want your stream to be associated with.

Well, that is pretty much it. Using the aforementioned guide, you should easily be able to stream your games to Twitch from your PC, Console, or Smartphone. However, don’t expect your Twitch stream to match those of professional streamers if you’re using this guide. There are many more nuances to streaming and achieving high-quality professional streams, most of which involve expensive hardware and software.
