Discord is planning to launch a game streaming service, but it is very different from Twitch. It is will launch a feature called Go Live for its desktop application on August 15th.
With this, anybody with a PC can stream video of their game in any voice channel to up to 10 people at the same time.
Go Live is guaranteed to give people the feeling of gaming together with your friends, and it works based on Discord’s game detection, the feature that shows your friends what you’re playing when you’re playing it.
The feature works in any server, with fully boosted servers there will be options for higher-quality streams. Also, multiple people can stream in the same voice channel and there is no limit to how many people can go live.
Go live is quite different from other streaming platforms e.g Mixer, Twitch. At first, it is limited to 10 viewers due to bandwidth restrictions and latency, and it has no webcam support.
Only windows users can run Discord, while Mac and Linux users can watch from a browser, due to the operating systems not supported. Discord plans to later introduce a mobile version for users as well.
