Bits are no longer only for Cheering. In Extensions, they can be used to power new, interactive experiences on streamer’s channels.
Whenever viewers use Bits in Extensions, Twitch provides a revenue share of 80% for the Bits used to the Partner or Affiliate, and 20% to the Extension developer. Check out the details here.
Bits in Extensions is available in preview to a limited set of developers, but we’re working to make this available to all developers later this summer. If you’re interested in developing an Extension that uses Bits, please keep a look out here for details soon on how to get in touch or follow @TwitchDev on Twitter!
