Twitch Info Panels play a major role in the success of any successful Twitch Channel. As someone who has recently started streaming Twitch more than he probably should, when I find a streamer that seemed interesting, the first thing I do is go check out the info panels they are using. You can tell a lot about the streamer by what their info panels look like to determine just how serious they are streaming. The same can be said for their banner, logo, overlay and other graphics on their side but nothing speaks dedication as well set-up info panels.
If you aren’t aware of what an info panel is, it’s the small panels found beneath the video stream of a streamer. This is the part where a streamer shares who he is, what he does, his social channels and tell your audience more about yourself. Info Panels are a great way to supplement for time and show how dedicated you are to what you do.
Imagine someone joins your stream not at your best time or you’re stalling for more people to join. Having well-made, good looking and informative info panels can make the viewing experience bearable since it gives people something to do.
