zoom announced on Wednesday that it’s easier to livestream your meeting or webinar to Twitch by adding native integration with the streaming service to the app. After connecting your Zoom and Twitch accounts, you can Start broadcasting your meeting with just a few clicks.
According to Zoom, the feature is intended to “streamline the process of sharing content within” communities, which definitely sounds like this is expected to be used for things like corporate webinars. However, there are many use cases I can think of for something like this – it would be an easy option for people wanting to do a live podcast, share a sermon, or make something like a town hall meeting public. Or heck, just stream your 8am standup if you’re really excited to share what you’re working on with the world (though you’ll probably want to check company policies to make sure that’s okay ).
To be clear, it’s not like it was impossible to stream a Zoom meeting on Twitch before. Zoom supports streaming to other platforms like Facebook and YouTube and lets you add a custom streaming service – so technically you could have streamed to Twitch by adding your streaming URL and key. Would you have too? Set up OBS and used it to stream a meeting, but either option would have been more complex than the new process of just clicking the “Live on Twitch” button and logging into the service.
