Twitch Launches TikTok-Inspired Discovery Feed

Twitch Launches TikTok-Inspired Discovery Feed

1. May 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

In a move reminiscent of other popular content platforms, Twitch has introduced its own version of the infinite scroll with the launch of the Discovery Feed on its mobile app. This new feature aims to enhance user engagement by offering a continuous stream of live streams and clips, adopting elements from the successful TikTok formula.

Introducing the Discovery Feed

The Twitch Discovery Feed is currently divided into two tabs: Live and Clips. The Live tab showcases currently broadcasting channels, while the Clips tab highlights popular clips from various streamers. This personalized content mix includes streams and clips from channels you follow, along with content from similar streamers tailored to your preferences.

Customizable Content Experience

Users have the option to customize their experience within the Clips feed by providing feedback through a thumbs-up or thumbs-down button.

This feedback helps refine content recommendations, ensuring a more tailored and enjoyable viewing experience. Additionally, users can follow channels directly from either tab to stay updated on newly discovered content or save it for later viewing.

Non-Intrusive Advertising

Unlike traditional ad placements at the start of streams or clips, Twitch has integrated ads into the Discovery Feed between posts to create a more seamless and non-intrusive viewing experience. It’s worth noting that ad revenue generated through these placements goes directly to Twitch, rather than contributing to streamer earnings.

Ongoing Development and Future Enhancements

Twitch is continuously refining the Discovery Feed and plans to implement significant updates to its mobile app later this year. Planned features include the ability to access live streams from anywhere on the screen (scheduled for May 20), replacing the home page with the Discovery Feed, and potentially introducing vertical video support.


As Twitch evolves its mobile experience with features inspired by popular content trends, users can expect a more dynamic and engaging platform that embraces the latest in content discovery and consumption.
