Twitch is a great streaming service for all the gamers out there. It was launched by Amazon in 2011. Today, it’s not only about video games, but you can also enjoy art, talk shows, listen to music, and more. There are more than 2 million Twitch users, and many of them regularly stream for their subscribers.
If you have an account on Twitch and you’re not sure how many people have subscribed to your channel, here’s how to find out.
How Many Subscribers Do I Have?
Since 2018, you’re able to track your statistics and your success on a new channel stats dashboard. The dashboard was updated to make it easier for you to access all the relevant channel info, such as the number of subscribers or total revenue.
If you’re not sure how to reach your dashboard, do the following:
- Log into your account.
- Click on the arrow in the top right corner of the screen, next to your profile picture.
- Select the Dashboard from the menu.
Once you open the dashboard, you’ll see a section named Stats on the left half of the screen, right under Stream Information.
Under Stats, you can check how many views your videos have, how many followers you have, and how many of them have subscribed to your channel.
Other Channel Analytics and Stats
The new dashboard has also introduced a well-organized channel analytics page where you can check all your stats in one place and track them with ease.
You can access the Channel Analytics by opening your dashboard and then going to the menu on the left edge of the screen. There’s Channel under Analytics section, so click to open it. In this page, you can see:
- The average number of viewers of your videos,
- The number of live views,
- How many new followers you have,
- The number of subscribers,
- Your revenue, etc.
If you click on each one of these categories, the graph below will show them individually.
In the top corners of the screen, arrows buttons allow you to go back on the timeline and check stats for past months. On the right side of the screen, you can select how you want to view your stats – by day, week, or month.
If you scroll down and take a look under the graph, you’ll discover more info about your channel you may find useful. There is a list of your top 5 viewed videos, and you can arrange them by average viewers, new followers, or new subscriptions. You may find out what categories are bringing new viewers and subscribers to your page.
Who Are Your Viewers?
You can also learn where your views come from as you’ll see the percentage of people who saw your videos because they are following your channel, they’ve been browsing your page, you appeared as a search result, or other.
If people ended up on your channel from outside Twitch, you could see these stats as well.
Further, if you click on View Details, you can even gain insight into what countries your viewers come from or what channels have viewed your videos.
Another category your viewers will be divided into is Views by Platform, so you’ll know if people watch your videos from the web, iPhone, Android, etc.
The All-Important Stats
Checking your stats often can be helpful in many ways. First of all, knowing how your subscribers watch your content can help you optimize it for the appropriate device. For example, if your stats show most of your viewers use the iOS or Android app, you should probably avoid adding too many stickers or text on the screen as your viewers won’t be able to see them clearly.
Second of all, if you’re aspiring to become a Twitch affiliate or convert your channel into a source of income, it is certainly useful to track your stats and see what you can do to improve your streaming.
