So, you’re looking for a way to kill time during those pesky forced breaks in your stream? Are you tired of feeling like it’s too much work to make up the content yourself? Are you worried that if you don’t come back from break with something good to say, your channel will lose momentum, or you’ll even lose subscribers?
It’s time to put those worries to bed (at least for a little while). Using pre-made, animated twitch BRB screens will help your channel stay fresh and interesting without all the work. They’re easy to use, completely customizable, and they can be tailored to suit just about any game.
1. What is a Twitch BRB Screen?
When your viewers see the overlay on the bottom right corner of the screen while you’re streaming, they know you’ve had to step away from your pc. It’s either for a few hours or just a quick bathroom break. Either way, it’s common courtesy to let them know when and if you’ll be back. This is often referred to as a Twitch BRB screen, and it’s one of the easiest ways to let people know that you’re not just away from your computer – but also away from your channel.
This isn’t an issue limited to full-time streamers either; even those who take occasional breaks can take advantage of these screens.
Of course, there are other uses for Twitch BRB Screens besides letting your audience know when you’re back from a break. For example, they’re an easy way to let your viewers know what game you’ll be playing next or that you have to do something else before getting back to streaming. They also make a great way to promote your other online presences – website, forum, social media profiles – or even to give a shout-out to a few of your biggest fans.
2. Why Use a Twitch BRB Screen?
There are several reasons why you might want to use twitch BRB screens. Perhaps the most obvious is that they’re just plain fun. It’s one of those little elements that let your viewers know that you’re human and will likely help them feel more at ease if your streams tend to be more laid-back.
Another reason to use these screens is to help you keep your channel organized and clean. If you don’t come back with something good to say, I mean good, it might be better for everyone involved if you didn’t return. Twitch BRB Screens make this a non-issue; people will understand that your next stream is only delayed by a few seconds, and you’re not simply taking a nap in the middle of Friday Night Magic.
In the end, it comes down to common courtesy, albeit a very casual one. You wouldn’t take a 5-minute break in the middle of your job without letting your boss know what’s happening, so why would you do so while streaming? Twitch BRB Screens make it easy to keep your stream moving while giving people the courtesy they deserve.
3. What Do You Need?
