How do I Watch Multiple Twitch Streams at Once?

Posted by StreamerStartup on August 26, 2021

If you're someone who loves watching multiple Twitch streams at the same time, then this is the blog post for you.

Twitch is a popular live streaming service where people can watch others play video games. If you're like me, and you love to watch multiple streamers play games at the same time, then this post will be perfect for you!

There are several third-party websites that help you easily view several streams at the same time and even allow you to take part in the chat of each stream.

It's fairly easy to start viewing multiple streams from Twitch, and in this article, we'll go over how to do it.

Platforms That Allow You to Watch Multiple Streams on Twitch

There are several different platforms that allow you and others to watch multiple streams at once. If you're looking for a way to be more social while you watch your favorite game, then these options might be the right choice for you.

Twitch Squad Stream

As of 2020, Twitch has implemented its own software, allowing Twitch users to enjoy up to four streams at one time, without ever leaving their platform or accessing multiple platforms. However, this is a feature that is made for online multiplayer gaming with friends and not necessarily for normal viewing. To take part in squad streaming, you will have to be friends with those in your squad and you will need a streaming setup. This feature is a great way of seeing a live video of all your teammates and leads to better team gameplay. However, for the average viewer who just wants to watch a game, a vod or perhaps a string of smaller streamers, this isn't the app for you.

Multistre.am

Multistre.am

If you would like an easy-to-use site where you can view up to eight different Twitch channels so you never miss any of your favorite Twitch streamer content, then Multistre.am is exactly what you are looking for.

While adding different streamers to this site, you will see that you can select which layout will be used based on how many streamers you've added.

You can pick which Twitch stream chat will show from any Twitch channel, and you can easily switch between them if needed by simply hovering over their screen name in their list and clicking the little chat icon.

Multitwitch.tv

Multitwitch.tv

If you are looking for a platform with the option to add more than 8 twitch streamers, then MultiTwitch.tv is another choice that you can choose.

This site allows users to watch multiple streams simultaneously, and I do mean a lot of streams. I believe I gave up when I got to ~25 streams since my bandwidth could not keep up. However, you can't change the layout of the streams you want to watch on the site.

It can also show chat from each streamer on the right-hand side, and it remains the same size as Twitch's chat window, which is nice compared to Multistre.am.

You can watch multiple streams by adding them at the end of the URL per the instructions on the main page. You can also click on Change Streams at the bottom right to add/edit the streams. You can press enter to add more slots to add streamers, which I find much easier.

TwitchTheatre.tv

TwitchThreatre.tv

Last but not least, my favorite one of them all, TwitchTheatre.tv, allows you to watch multiple streams and videos from Twitch, Youtube, and Facebook, with the live chat of your choosing. This site has a wide variety of options and menu controls to make the experience more suited for you.

For Twitch streams, you can add the channel name of the streamer to load their video. However, If you are trying to watch streams from YouTube or Facebook, you will need to enter the full URL of the video/stream in the site for it to load properly.

This site makes it easy to add or subtract channels that you want to watch. You can even view different chats of streamers that you are not watching at the same time. Out of all 3 sites, this one has the most customizations available and the best interface.

Final Thoughts

As streaming sites continue to improve, more viewers are able to find easier ways to watch multiple streams simultaneously on multiple accounts. I anticipate similar services will become increasingly popular, and one day they will likely be built into Facebook Gaming, Youtube Gaming and Twitch to the same level as the third party offerings.
