The use of video game broadcasts has gone up, we're not just talking about playing in the cloud, but seeing the spread of people overseas and interacting with them. Twitch, Mixer and other services are coming up,, something that should surprise no one.
I realize I was out of the broadcasting boat, but it is undeniable that part of the industry is going in that direction.
Mixer and Facebook Gaming continue to grow
In a recent report prepared by StreamElements and Arsen.gg we see how the trend towards this type of video game is developing. New players like Mixer and Facebook Gaming are stealing prominence on the all-powerful Twitch and its direct rival, YouTube Gaming.
While it is true that it represents only 2% growth, it should also be noted that it is not likely that the acquisition of Ninja and Shroud by Mixer or DisguisedToast and ZeRo by the Zuckerberg company has passed that information.
However, it is not an easy market to get into, and both of these products work well, from 1% to 3% in the current scenario is not a bad idea. In fact, in order to better understand what all this means, we have to go to growth in the observation hours, where Mixer grew 149% and Facebook 210%.
The fact that there are many options is always better. And then we will see more news about these forums next year.
