Hey friends! Quick update on a feature that is mostly no longer used:
The deprecation of Group Chat is now imminent. Don’t worry, though! Basically, nobody used it anymore (we took a look at the data).
Why is this happening? Because of its legacy infrastructure (so old), and the fact that Rooms has rendered most of its functionality redundant. If you happen to be running an IRC-based application that still utilizes Group Chat, have no fear. You can use Rooms now!
More information on the Rooms feature can be found here: https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/irc/chat-rooms/#twitch-irc-capability-chat-rooms
Press F to pay respects.
