Today we are announcing the timeline to decommission the Legacy Twitch API v5 with the shutdown to be completed on February 28, 2022. Twitch application client IDs must migrate to the Twitch API by February 28, 2022, and those that have not made requests to the v5 API before July 15, 2021 will no longer be able to access v5.
The information below includes key takeaways and the shutdown windows leading up to the final decommission date. For greater detail regarding this shutdown, please see the Twitch blog post entitled Legacy Twitch API v5 Shutdown Details and Timeline.
The Legacy Twitch API v5 has been deprecated for some time and as of today has a scheduled shutdown timeline. With the latest endpoint additions, the Twitch API now includes all the functionality that we intend to migrate from v5.
For further details regarding why the Legacy Twitch API v5 was deprecated and scheduled for decommission, see the blog post linked above.
All developers who are currently using legacy v5 endpoints in their applications.
