Introducing extensions for Twitch!

The Best Way to Watch and Interact on Twitch!

Streamers and viewers are already downloading the newest and latest extensions for Twitch by Overwolf app developers.

Get stat overviews of your favorite streamers on games like LoL and Rocket League. Live stream emotes straight to video. And whatever you do, don’t kill your new Kappa Pet!

Where Can I Find Them?

The extensions are now available for all streamers and viewers! Look for the video overlay to start interacting with them or simply scroll down and look for the interactive panel below the video stream.

Two different types of extensions are available:

  • Panels – These extensions are available below the video stream next to the general information of the streamers.
  • Video Overlays – Interact with these extensions directly in the video stream.

Twitch Extension

Look What’s Coming to Your Next Twitch Stream!

Summoner Info

Get updated stats on your favorite LoL streamer from Twitch without alt-tabbing out. The Summoner Info panel shows your streamer’s current champion, their most played champion based on Mastery score, Runes and Masteries for the current match, PLUS their ranking and a brief summary of their last ranked matches with their current champion.

PUBG Tracker

Players Unknown Battleground Tracker shows real-time streamer rankings in Solo, Duo, and Squad game modes either as a video overlay or in a separate panel. A complete match history is also available so you can follow your favorite streamer as he or she dominates their way to the very top!

Rocket League Tracker

Get updated stats on your favorite Rocket League streamers from within Twitch! The panel relays information on ranked matches and lets you follow their progression and keeps track of their number of wins, saves, goals and shots.

Destiny Tracker

No more “What’s your gear?” spam in the chat! The Destiny Tracker extension by Tracker Network adds a panel to Twitch which displays the streamer’s current gear as well as their progress in the different missions.

Live Emote Reactions

React to the stream by pushing emotes live directly inside the video stream! Place a beautiful flow of live emotes with the other viewers on the video. Size, positioning, and cooldown are all completely customizable by the streamer.

Kappa Pet

Interact with the streamer’s chosen emote in this extension panel. This emote is alive and it responds to love — try interacting with it! The longer the streamer is live, the more the emote will evolve and new options will unlock!  If an emote doesn’t get any attention for a long period of time, it dies.
