Channel Points Predictions: Let viewers guess your destiny

Nov 12 2020

Viewers love watching you clutch the win. With the rollout of Channel Points Predictions, going live to 50% of Twitch Partners and Affiliates today, you can bring your community closer and keep them engaged by giving them a stake in your most exciting moments.

You set an event and its possible outcomes, and viewers use Channel Points to predict the one they think will be the end result. Viewers who guess correctly will win a proportionate share of Channel Points from the total pool.

We built this product in response to your feedback: You want fun and easy ways to engage your community and make participating in your channel even more awesome. Viewers want new ways to use their hard-earned Channel Points to interact with your stream and join the action. The success of Polls and related third-party extensions show popular demand for this type of tool, so we’re proud to offer Predictions as yet another superpower for creators like you to build community and level up the viewing experience. 

How do I start a Prediction?

Creators and mods included in the soft launch can now use the chat command /prediction or go to your stream manager and add the “Manage Predictions” quick action.

You can then enter details on the prediction you want to run and the two outcomes possible. Once the information is complete, you are ready to start your prediction. 

You can manage your prediction from the dashboard. To complete your prediction, select End Submissions and choose an outcome. All Channel Points will then be granted to the winning viewers. 

How were creators selected for the soft launch? How do I know if I have access?

Creators were randomly selected to form a 50% sample of all Twitch Partners & Affiliates. If you have access, you’ll see a Predictions quick action on your dashboard. 

We’re excited to learn how the community interacts with this feature throughout the soft launch. Based on the results of this experiment, we hope to make Predictions available to the broader community before the end of the year.
