StreamElements: Mobile games are expanding on YouTube, but not Twitch ...

In June, StreamElements published its most recent monthly report, highlighting the state of streaming. According to this report, YouTube Gaming and Twitch are beginning to diverge in terms of content. Also, while Twitch's numbers are fluctuating slightly, Facebook Gaming is on the rise.

Twitch is still leading as far as livestreaming goes, according to Rainmaker.gg, the analytics partner for StreamElements. The numbers have been declining somewhat all year, partly because viewers are starting to venture out again. Facebook Gaming, of all things, is seeing a big increase: It went from 350 million hours watched in May to 425 million in June.

YouTube Gaming is still behind Twitch in livestreaming activity, but it's doing well on its own. Among the most notable YouTube titles are Garena Free Fire, Battlegrounds Mobile India, and Mobile Legends Bang Bang. None of those games are included in Twitch's top 10 list.

Other improvements include the increasing popularity of VTubers on YouTube. Kuzuha and Kanae, two VTubers, made the list of top ten streamers on YouTube. On Twitch, streamer ibai just barely edged out xQc for the top spot due to his recent La Velada Del Ano II boxing event.
