Twitch Studio Beta streaming software is now available for Mac

Twitch Studio has been around for a bit of time now, but up until today it has only been available for Windows users. That’s finally changing.

Today, Twitch has announced that it is bringing the Twitch Studio Beta to Mac. This will make it easier to stream directly from your Apple-branded Mac computer. Twitch has billed its Studio product as a way to keep things simple, especially in comparison to other streaming software options for Mac (and even Windows). That same mentality is in place for the macOS version.

Here are the major bullet points from the announcement today:

  • Easy setup: With guided onboarding, automatic hardware detection, and recommended settings, you’ll get step-by-step setup for the best quality stream. Our built-in desktop audio capture capability also lets you easily share audio from your web browser or computer directly to your stream, no extra configuration required.
  • Twitch integration: Twitch Studio has everything you need to start interacting with your audience, including built-in alerts and chat integration.
  • Customization: Easily personalize the look and feel of your stream with different layouts (such as a full-screen webcam layout perfect for chatting with your community), and customize how your stream sounds by adding multiple audio devices. You can even mix up your content by connecting your iPhone or iPad and sharing the screen to your stream. Look out for even more customization options that we’ll be rolling out soon.

The Twitch Studio Beta is now available in an open beta, so if you want to check it out you can do so right now. You can download it right here.

Streaming software hasn’t always had a focus on Mac, but that’s starting to change recently. This is the second big announcement in this regard this year, for instance. Back in March we reported that Logitech’s Streamlabs software finally arrived on Mac.
