The new streaming platform has announced several changes implemented in its latest update. Currently, Kick users will no longer be unnecessarily exposed to gambling broadcasts. In addition, they will be able to block users who stream in hot tubs.
Kick has been gaining popularity among streamers since early 2023, challenging even Twitch, currently the market leader. Kick’s management to convince streamers and viewers to switch platforms has included several features.
The streaming platform has attracted big names such as xQc and Amouranth, who have been offered large contracts. But that’s not all; content creators are also offered a 95% revenue share. When compared to Twitch’s 50%, it’s no wonder the growth is exponential. In the first seven months, Kick added more than 10 million accounts.
As the months have gone by, the platform’s managers have shown that they want to provide the best experience for users. Therefore, they have dedicated themselves to making several updates to improve the community’s experience.
