Twitch has recently rolled out its Twitch Donation feature, which allows users to donate to any game or stream they enjoy.
The feature has already seen positive results, with a whopping $1.3 million worth of donations pouring in in the past few weeks.
But while many have praised the feature, some have also been disappointed in how it has been implemented.
The feature allows users in the United States to send a single $1 donation to any streamer or game they want to donate $10 or more.
However, the donation doesn’t have to be sent to the same game or game streamer.
The recipient can simply select the streamer and the donation will be automatically sent to that streamer’s account.
There are currently over 10,000 games and over 40,000 game streams available to donate, according to Twitch.tv.
Some games, like Overwatch, are only available to those who donate $5 or more, which can be a hassle for streamers and gamers alike.
Other streamers, like The Escapist, have found that the Twitch Donation tool is a little confusing.
As of this writing, there are over 6,500 streams that have been created and the average donation amount is $2.49, but the streamers can only donate $2 to one streamer per stream.
Twitch said the tool is currently in beta, but said it will be rolling out the feature in the coming weeks.
“With the Twitch donation tool, we’ve been able to help streamers who don’t want to pay full price for their favorite games and streamers that can’t afford to pay, but want to support those who do,” said Twitch CEO Kevin Lin in a statement.
“We hope this will help streamer who might not have the funds to make the donations and streamer in need.”
For now, Twitch is only accepting donations of $10, $25, and $50.
The company has also said that it is working to make donation options more user-friendly.
“We’re still in the beta testing phase and we are actively working to improve our donation tool,” Lin said.
“As soon as we’ve made our initial improvements, we will be making the donation tool even better for streamer, game, and community alike.”
