You Can Now Link Your Twitch Account With Steam

Posted on July 5, 2013 AT 03:24am

Steam users can now link their accounts with Twitch, according to a post on the official Twitch blog.

Players can link their accounts via their Twitch account settings page. After linking the accounts DOTA 2 players will be able to earn item drops while watching Twitch streams of official tournaments that they hold a ticket for, the official DOTA 2 blog revealed.

“We realize that people have different reasons why they prefer to watch in game or via streams and wanted to bridge the gap of features they were missing out on by choosing the service that works for them the most,” developer Riot Games writes. “We hope to expand on the features available via this system and would love to hear what you think we should work on next.”

I’m sure that other Steam games will make use of this connection in the future.
