Back in the day, we were told that playing video games would “rot our brains” and was basically not good for us. However, these days, playing video games has proven to be a rather lucrative thing to do, and people are actually paying money and watching other people play games on platforms like Twitch.

If you’re interested in getting in on the action, it can feel a bit intimidating and overwhelming, but you’re in luck because Twitch is about to make your life a bit easier. The company has recently announced the launch of a new streaming app called Twitch Studio. The idea behind the app is that it will help first-time streamers get setup with the bare essentials they need to start streaming.

This includes offering a guided setup for streamers where hardware like microphones, webcams, monitor resolutions, are all detected automatically and configured to offer the best sound and display. It will also offer up customizable templates where streamers can configure their stream to their liking, or choose from pre-built ones.

If you’re interested in taking Twitch Studio for a spin, the app is currently available in an open beta for PC users. If you’re on Mac, it looks like you’re out of luck for now.
