The Travel & Outdoors category on Twitch broadcasts all kinds of content: from "pro-gamers" on vacation, to the average internet user sharing video of their roadtrip, to the contemplation of nature. So many possibilities for armchair travel that are winning over more and more internet users.
The Travel & Outdoors category on Twitch attracts tens of thousands of streamers. On Thursday, August 5, 2021, the category made its debut in the week's top trends on the platform. With more than 2 million hours viewed over seven days, the category recorded 15.1% more hours compared to the previous week. The number of broadcasters in the category also increased by 1.4% reaching 1,630 this week. But what can we see in the Travel & Outdoors category?
Follow live glimpses of streamers' vacations Having stopped at a gas station, professional "Fortnite" player MateoZ takes advantage of the break to start a live stream. The Spaniard is sitting in the passenger seat of a car and converses on camera. When he's not addressing the community, we can follow his movements in real time and comment.
Live 24/7 Everyone has their own tastes and there seems to be something for just about each viewer! If you want to get away from it all and watch nature, some streamers have set up cameras in their backyards or on the edge of a forest to observe the activity of the area. Most of the time nothing happens, but sometimes you can get a glimpse of a raccoon in the dark or watch birds in their habitat, flapping their wings and doing their thing.
In other cases such as the Merewether_SLSC channel, live streaming allows surfers to check out the waves at the sea before sessions on Merewether beach in Australia.
