Group Chat beta announced by Twitch, starting from today for Partner Program members
Twitch will roll out starting with today a Group Chat beta that will allow invite-only chats rooms except of Channel Chats. In the beta test it will be available only for the members of the Twitch Partners Program.
This means that only the Twitch Partners can start Group Chat rooms, but any Twitch user can be asked to join the Group Chat. Currently Group Chat is supported only on the web.
