How to Change the Twitch Name? (Step by step)

Change Twitch Name

Twitch is a video live streaming service which is operated by Twitch Interactive, which is a subsidiary of Amazon.com.

When justin.tv was launched in the year 2007 by Emmett Shear and Justin Kan, the site was divided into several content categories. The category of the game grew so fast that it became the most popular content on the site.

Twitch has got more than 35 million visitors a month. Twitch has become the most popular E-sporting streaming service by a large margin, which leads some to conclude that the website has a near-monopoly in the market.

Although in past times the user couldn’t change the name, the user can now change the username in every 60 days. But the problem arises as there is no option or feature from the mobile app, the user has to use the PC app or site to change the name.
