Licensed music has been an issue for many streamers in the past, with takedown notices coming from rights holders and making certain games complicated to stream or post videos of. It’s made streaming games with big licensed soundtracks, like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, difficult. Twitch is testing a solution to this issue, an app called Soundtrack By Twitch that will allow streamers to play license-cleared music in their streams.
In a blog post, Twitch has detailed Soundtrack, which has an interface very similar to Spotify. “Soundtrack gives you a curated collection of rights-cleared music and integrates with your streaming software to separate your audio sources, allowing you to keep your channel safe while you create compelling content and grow as a creator,” the post says.
Artists currently available, according to the blog, include Above & Beyond, mxmtoon, Porter Robinson, RAC, SwuM, “and many more”. Claude Von Stroke, Cloudchord, Chrome Sparks, and Tia Nomore are also listed on the Soundtrack website.
The current beta is compatible with OBS Studio v26.0 or later, and compatibility with Twitch Studio and Streamlabs OBS is planned. Streamers can join a waitlist now, and invites to the program will be sent out over email.
This is an issue that streaming platforms seem to be increasingly aware of–Facebook Gaming also recently licensed a bunch of music for streamers. Microsoft, meanwhile, closed down its streaming service Mixer earlier this year.
