The Guest Star feature Twitch began rolling out to a small group of creators in June is now available to all users of the Amazon-owned streaming platform.

Creators can invite up to five guests with Twitch accounts, whether those guests are on desktop or mobile, and incorporate audio and video from guests without the need for a third-party application.

Streamers can turn on viewer request mode to bring viewers on-stream, and they have access to moderator functions including the ability to invite, mute, remove and vet guest.

Only phone-verified Twitch users can join as guests, and streamers and moderators can see and talk with guests “backstage” before allowing them to join the livestream.
