Twitch experienced its best viewership month to date in January 2021.
As detailed in a blog post by StreamElements, both Twitch and Facebook Gaming had a record-breaking month as the pair saw a year-on-year increase of 117 per cent.
More specifically, Twitch saw more than two billion hours in viewership, while Facebook Gaming racked up 439 million hours.
Moreover, for the first time in a long while, all of the top ten streamed games on Twitch saw an increase in viewership.
However, the Just Chatting category proved to be the most popular with 242 million hours watched, a month-on-month increase of 18 per cent.
Last month, Twitch brought its new hateful conduct and harassment policies into effect. The changes were first announced in December, though the streaming giant delayed implementation to give streamers the opportunity to come to terms with the new rules.
