Twitch is now rolling out support for 1080p/60fps streams, the platform announced on its blog.

To stream at 1080p/60 you’re going to need to be able to sustain a bitrate up towards 6 megabits, though quality will depend on the game being streamed.

The previous 3.5 megabit ingest bitrate limit has been lifted.

Furthermore, viewers will also have lots more quality options available to them, ensuring they get the best viewing experience possible.

You can check that your channel has been updated by heading over to Twitch Inspector.

“Visit Twitch Inspector and check your latest stream data for an indicator called “Transcode V2.” Once you have access (we’re rolling out support for all channels in the coming weeks), your viewers will be able to open the video settings menu and find more p’s than a plate of pepperoni pizza,” says Twitch.

“Twitch Inspector is about more than just quality options, though. It lets you monitor and troubleshoot your stream stability and run test streams before you go live so your viewers will have the best experience possible.”
