According to reports, it seems the new Twitch update will change the UI of the browser page on the website in an attempt to bolster stream discoverability.

Twitch Partner LowcoTV recently shared a beta version of the new look on her Twitter, which has received widespread approval from the community.The changed UI has new features such as stream-autoplay in a mini-player, quick access to related streamers, and the added advantage of not having to watch a pre-roll ad while trying to find a stream to watch.Many believe this will help new streamers grow by increasing the ease of access for a viewer to pick and choose from a number of streams without the hassle of ever going to another page.The current 'Browse' section of Twitch is not interactive and forces viewers to individually click on streams to see what is going on in the respective streams.

Shown below is the current browsing page for Fall Guys. Notice the endless table of static images that meet the user:After choosing the game you want to watch, you will be met with a list of streamers currently streaming the game.

But in that list of hundreds, if not thousands, the only way to distinguish between each channel is to go by a still image of the thumbnail and stats like the number of viewers and channel language.The new Browse page, however, is different in a good way.

The website is an aggregator of news from open sources. The source is indicated at the beginning and at the end of the announcement. You can send a complaint on the news if you find it unreliable.
