Introducing Guest Star Week: starring you!

Earlier this month, we released the Guest Star beta to all streamers and moderators, allowing them to invite other Twitch users to join their broadcasts with just a browser. We’ve been blown away by all of the creative ways Guest Star has been used so far. Ebonix had a friendly Sims character design competition. FreckledScience debunked beauty myths with a skincare expert. And YungElderberry hosted a Halloween trivia contest with viewers joining her on a broomstick.

Now it’s time for us to host our own Guest Star party. From November 16th through November 23rd, Guest Star Week will highlight streamers using Guest Star on the homepage so our community can see Guest Star in action. Our incredible Twitch Ambassadors will be kicking things off and keeping the party going all week long – full schedule below. We’ll be giving streamers, like you, an opportunity to get discovered on the homepage too – just add the tag “GuestStarWeek” to your stream when you go live with Guest Star. Share your clips on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, using #GuestStarWeek and we’ll highlight our favorites on our Twitch channels. 

How to get started with Guest Star

  1. Navigate to your Creator Dashboard.
  2. Click “Start Guest Star” in your Quick Actions.
  3. Follow the setup prompts.
  4. Go live with a pre-planned guest, or turn on “Requests” to allow viewers to raise their hand to join.

Join our Creator Camp livestream tomorrow, November 17th at 11AM PST to hear first hand how Guest Star helps you safely create engaging content with your community.

A note about safety:

Rest assured, streamers, mods, and viewers can all report guests for violating community guidelines, and your channel won’t receive a penalty for a guest violation if you’ve taken the necessary steps to report and remove the guest. As an additional protection, only phone-verified Twitch users can join as guests, and you and your mods can preview them in a virtual backstage area before pushing them live to your stream.

For more information about getting set upjoining as a guest, and Guest Star safety, visit the Twitch Help Center.

We can’t wait to see what you create together.
