Not wanting to be left out in the cold, Twitch will be launching a Desktop App on March 16. Using it’s acquisition of Curse a while back, the app looks to take the synergies of Curse and apply them to the world of streaming in a combined world of gloriousness.
You now will be able to create your own Twitch server for your community to hang out in and stay in touch, even when your stream is offline. And because we know that it’s challenging to get all your friends in one place, we’ve made it super easy for you to import and centralize your friends from the game communities you belong to! And now that your friends are all in a central place, you will be able to instantly and easily get in touch with them via whispers as well as new voice and video calls.
Anyone want to install yet another chat app?
