Twitch removes watch parties

Twitch will be removing the Prime Video Watch Party feature from Twitch on April 2, 2024.

We launched Watch Parties in 2020 to offer streamers a way to enjoy Prime Video content with their communities. While some streamers incorporated Watch Parties into their streams, usage of Watch Parties on Twitch has declined over the years, so we are removing it and investing these resources in other features.

It was too niche of a use case.

Some product manager somewhere thought this would be a good way to boost adoption of both products, but in reality there was very little desire to do this from the start.

I hadn’t even known that feature existed, but it actually seems pretty cool. Shame it’s leaving.
