In one of its traditional transmissions, the Spanish Auronplay, made several reflections on the future of streaming platforms such as twitch and YouTube.
The youtuber and now streamer pointed out that platforms like YouTube do not seek to compete with Twitch because they do not consider it their main competitor.
“YouTube doesn’t give a damn about live streaming. YouTube’s real competitor isn’t Twitch: it’s TikTok, and I’m talking to information on the subject. Do not care. Their fight is with TikTok, and that’s why they’re pushing those shitty shorts and all that shit. Because? Because the war is against TikTok, ”he said on the broadcast.
The content creator’s comment is linked to the projects developed by YouTube, which are more linked to promoting YouTube Shorts than to reinforcing Gaming, a streaming transmission subsidiary.
