While Twitch is still leading the way in streaming, its numbers have been down albeit ever so slightly, as it dropped from 1.8 billion hours of viewing in May to 1.7 billion during June.
This is because Facebook Gaming has become more attractive, going from 350 million hours viewed in May to 425 million in June.
On the hunt for Twitch.
One of the big headaches for Twitch is YouTube Gaming; this is because the video platform shows a preference for mobile games.
This is reflected by looking at the top 10 on YouTube which includes games like Garena Free Fire, Battlegrounds Mobile India and Mobile Legends Bang Bang; none of the above listed in the top 10 of Twitch.
Similarly, other changes include the growing popularity of VTubers on YouTube, Two VTubers, Kuzuha and Kanae, broke into the top 10 YouTube streamers list.
While on Twitch, streamer ibai barely edged out XQC for the top spot, thanks to his recent boxing event “La Velada Del Año II” and set a Twitch viewership record with around 3.5 million concurrent viewers.
These numbers show that the gamer market continues to grow, a trend that has been observed since the last decade and that there is also a long time before it stops growing.
In this aspect, Twitch knew how to access gamers by becoming the reference platform, something like Netflix, so, although competitors are increasing their users, there is still a long way to go before they really defeat it.
