Full-spectrum analytics to help you optimize your Extension on Twitch

We recently launched Extension Analytics for Developers to help you understand how your Extensions are performing on Twitch.

Today, Twitch Insights is expanding our offering to provide more robust and actionable metrics about the Extensions lifecycle. These 34 new metrics will provide transparency into your Extension’s performance and help you identify bottlenecks.
