Streaming is a completely new format for presenting information, where even a schoolkid can become a star. At the same time, viewers don't need to install additional streaming software to watch the live show on their gadgets.

Why Is Game Streaming So Popular Today?

Popular streamers are tough competitors to TV and movie stars. Most of them have clear diction, memorable voice, and manner of speech. They are skilled players and fluent in-game terminology and gamer jargon. Some streamers attract audiences with excessive emotionality, and others make them laugh nervously due to their strong calmness. The key to success is oratory skills, intelligence, subtle but understandable humor, great charisma. All these are complemented by some attributes — bright colorful make-up, shocking clothes, cosplay costumes. The competition in this industry is quite high.

The pandemic has raised the demand for streams at times. Since most of the inhabitants of developed countries must keep self-isolation at home, streaming has replaced live communication for many. In 2020, due to the pandemic, not only workflow, but also entertainment moved online, and the services of streaming sites were in demand more than ever. If you feel that you are ready to start streaming games, then you should try to find your niche in this business. Good luck!
