Rooms are custom chat spaces that are available from the channel page itself, and can be set up by anyone on their own account.
Now developers are figuring out new ways to make message-sending as easy as possible using this kind of encryption.
Game streaming site Twitch today is debuting an always-on chat room feature it’s simply calling “Rooms.” The addition was first announced at its developer event Twitch Con back in October, and was expected to launch before year-end.
That timing shifted a bit, but the feature is going live today across both web and mobile for Twitch users worldwide.
Moderators and Subscribers are set categories, so they’re automatically added to any Subscriber or Moderator Room.
But if the Room is set to be open to Everyone, the viewer can choose to opt into it if they want to participate.
