Squad Stream example (Twitch)

Twitch, the live streaming video platform owned by Amazon (AMZN) subsidiary Twitch Interactive, announced Wednesday that it has launched Squad Streams, a new collaborative functionality that allows for up to four streamers to co-stream in a single window.

According to the press release shared with us, Squad Streams is initially being released for Twitch Partners. These creators can join up right from the Twitch dashboard and stream just as they normally would. Twitch states that this allows streamers to grow their audiences more rapidly while also providing unique viewership opportunities for fans.

“Squad Stream is a fast and easy way for up to four creators to go live and stream together in one window,” said Twitch. “It’s perfect for showing off every awesome moment in a battle royale match, saving a virtual seat at the table for tabletop streams, catching every second of speedrunning head-to-heads, and so much more that we can’t wait for all of you to show us.”

Twitch notes that it is celebrating the launch with a number of Squad Streams featuring famous streamers and esports athletes. Here’s the full schedule (in PST):
