Why did you add this to Vortx?
We are huge fans of the streaming community and the entertainment and enjoyment they provide. Vortx allows you to feel the excitement and atmosphere of your games. By combining the two we can bring a new level of presence and immersion to streaming and a greater level interaction between streamers and their community.
Why would you use Vortx as a streamer?
Vortx is a new technology and could serve as a way to differentiate in a competitive market. Using Vortx as an environmental simulator for girst play-throughs and PvE gameplay adds greater immersion to the experience and potentially a more intersting viewer expreience to a community. Vortx’s notification “slot machine” adds an exciting physical and visual reporting of stream activity. ChatBot integration adds a fun, interactive physical interaction between streamer and community for the first time ever.

What streaming services will Streamer Mode (Beta) work with?
For this Beta we are only accomodating Twitch streamers but as we build out the software and observe user feedback we will consider adding other streaming services when we roll out the full release.
What will streamer mode full release be?
We will be actively looking and listening to how users interact with Streamer Mode (Beta) and make some decisions based off those learnings. However, currently we have plans to allow for extensive customization and control of all the different notifications.
