In 2017, Twitch announced that they were teaming up with a new bot-based invitation platform, Baby Shark, to help streamers bring their content to Twitch viewers.
It was a smart move for a number of reasons: the platform was designed for people who were already familiar with Twitch, who didn’t need to learn how to use a Twitch app, and who had a great time using their existing Twitch app.
Now that it’s here, we’re sharing the latest version of Baby Shark with us, which will include some interesting new features and functionality.
Here’s what you need to know about Baby Shark and its invite system.
Baby Shark is the newest addition to Twitch’s invite system, which was introduced in 2016.
In 2017 and 2018, the platform launched with the addition of more Twitch-branded apps, but also launched with a variety of other services, including Botting Clubhouse and Genesis Invitational.
Baby Shark’s invite features have been updated since that time, with the most notable additions coming in 2018, with Baby Shark v1.1.5.
