Adding an offline screen to your Twitch channel is a great way to both personalize your channel and provide information to your viewers when you’re not streaming. The image you upload will display over the video player when you’re not online.
Your offline screen might include things like your streaming schedule, your community Discord server, or other social media handles. A good offline screen will help you keep in touch with your community and build your audience even when you’re not live.
