Have you ever wanted to become popular on Twitch in the simplest way? With Discord, now a chance. As one of the fastest growing VoIP platforms for gamers, there are a myriad of video game communities you can be part of. If you have a certain reputation in the communities you belong to, you can take advantage of Discord's Streamer mode to actively show that you're streaming.

So, if you want to show your Twitch channel and improve the number of viewers, make sure you have enabled the Streamer mode on Discord every time before starting a stream. If you have no idea how to do this, let's take a look at how to enable Streamer mode on Discord:
