How Hosting Can Help You Grow

If you have your friends auto host your channel, you will see up to 10 percent growth in just a few minutes. If you start hosting other channels, you will be exposed to new players who also subscribe with the same channel you have selected. You will see a notification on the banner found at the top of your page as to who is viewing your hosted channel. 

And if your channel is hosted by your friend, you will be notified that someone has started hosting you and the numbers of viewers they are connected. This can allow you to thank them for giving you additional exposure in their community. Viewers can then subscribe, follow, and navigate to the channel you have hosted from your page. Aside from that, your viewers are still allowed to utilize subscription features in your chat room. 

And yes, you can host even if you are on your mobile. That means that it is not impossible for you to choose the “Mobile Host Mode” anywhere you may go. You just need to select the gear icon, look for menu, and choose “Host.” This feature is currently available for iOS users though. If you are an Android user, don’t worry because Twitch is continuously developing this feature for you. Just sit back and relax!
