What are Teams?


Teams are a way to unite and connect streamers together. A stream team on Twitch will look like this - members of the team are displayed in the left hand memberlist, with currently live channels at the top of the list. Members who are live will also be featured in the team’s video player, and the team’s description will be shown below the player.

How to Join a Team

  1. After you receive a team invitation, go to your Settings
  2. Click the Channels and Videos tab
  3. Scroll down to the section named My Teams
  4. Select Accept on a team invite to join that team

How to Create a Team

To request a new team, Partners will need to open a ticket while logged in to their Partner Account. In your ticket, please provide the following information:

  • Team Page URL (i.e., www.twitch.tv/team/teamname):
  • Team Display Name:
  • Twitch account to own/edit:

Please Note: Only Partners may create teams. However, any user can join a team if they receive an invitation. The team page URL cannot be changed once set, and Partners are limited to a total of two (2) stream team requests.

How to Edit/Manage a Team

 

Editing Teams for Team Owners:

Once your team page has been set up, you will be able to view and edit your team page by navigating to the My Teams section under the Channel and Videos tab of your channel settings. To view your team, click on the Team name to go to the Team page.

To edit your team, click on the Edit button of the team you wish to edit. This will take you to the Team Dashboard which will have the following options:

  • Revenue: Here you will be able to see the revenue generated by your team members if they have chosen to share this information with you.
  • Stats: Here you will be able to see channel stats of your team members if they have chosen to share this information with you
  • Members: Here you can invite or remove members from your team and decide the order of priority, which determines who will be featured on the team page when multiple members are streaming at the same time
  • Featured Channels: Here you can choose channels to feature when none of your team members are currently live. You do not need to invite a channel to your team in order to feature them.
  • Settings: Here you can change your team’s display name, public description, logo, banner, and background image.

Editing Teams for Team Members:

Once you have joined a team, you will be able to view and edit your team settings by navigating to your My Teams section under the Channel and Videos tab of your channel settings. You will have the following options:

  • View your Team: click on the name of the team that you wish to view, and you will be taken to the team page.
  • Stats: If checked, this will share your channel’s statistics with the team owner.
  • Revenue: If checked, this will share your channel’s revenue information with the team owner.
  • Main: If selected, this will make that team’s display name be featured in your channel info below your stream category. You can only select one team to be your main team, but you can change your main team at any time.
  • Remove: This is the trash can icon; click this if you want to remove yourself from a team.
