How do I become a Chess.com streamer?
Updated over a week ago

Anyone can be a Chess.com streamer! All you need to do is start streaming on Chess.com!

How to get started

First, create an account on Twitch YouTube, or any other streaming platform. See here for a how-to guide on creating a Twitch account, and one here for YouTube!

You'll also need to install some streaming software such as OBS or Streamlabs, we recommend OBS, and you can see here for a tutorial on how to get started there.

Once you've got it all set up, just start streaming!

Stream your games on Chess.com, or puzzles, variants, or anything you like!

Get listed at Chess.com/streamers

Once you've been consistently streaming for a while, and built an audience, you can apply to become listed as a streamer on Chess.com/streamers.

If approved, fans will be able to easily follow you from our chess.com/streamers page, and fans who follow you there will see alerts and notifications when you go live.

You can also learn much more details about the program, the requirements, and everything else by reading this article.
