Last fall, we introduced an all-new API designed to simplify core data models and create a consistent, reliable experience for the Twitch developer community. Alongside this update, we also immediately deprecated and planned to remove v5 by the end of 2018.
Based on your feedback, we are delaying the end-of-life for v5 of the Twitch API. While we recommend using the new Twitch API on new projects, we recognize it does not yet solve for every use case we want to promote.
We’re still working to make the new Twitch API complete and robust. We will provide a migration timeline for v5 functionality and an updated roadmap for the new Twitch API on July 10. We understand that API changes can be very disruptive and we are committed to providing ample time to migrate your apps and integrations.
In the meantime, we welcome your questions and feedback below.
