Some statistics from Twitch from 2021

There is no doubt that many people watch twitch, but how much do we watch and which is the most popular game?

It is Streamelements that have now released what they call “State of the Stream” for 2021 and there are some interesting numbers here.

Among other things, we can find the following:

  • 24 billion hours have been streamed (17 billion 2020)
  • Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA5) most popular game
  • GTA 5 has been streamed for 2.1 billion hours
  • “Just Chatting” the largest category with 3.1 billion hours

It’s a lot of hours there, even streaming on Facebook has increased a bit, from 3.6 to 5.3 billion hours. But still FAR away from Twitch at the moment.
