Host Mode Broadcaster NotificationAug 12 2014 · 16 comments · Engineering, New Features
Three weeks ago we launched the first version of Host Mode, then followed that up with an FAQ. You all very clearly asked: “How do I know know who is hosting my channel and how many viewers are they driving to my video?”
Today, we’re excited to announce an update that addresses these very issues. Host Mode now includes Broadcaster Notifications. When you’re broadcasting and someone begins to /host you, you’ll get a notification of who is hosting you and how many viewers they are driving to your video.
The notification will now appear in your Chat, so you and your viewers will know who is hosting you.
Hopefully this takes the guesswork out of the question: “Where did all these viewers come from?!”
But this is just the first step toward a more robust, informative Host Mode. Soon you will also get a notification in your Broadcaster Dashboard. Stay tuned for more exciting updates straight from your suggestions.
