Streams API. Several users streaming-status in a single request

Hello everyone.
This is my 1st post, so there can be an answer, if so - you can just give me the link.

The problem is:
I have several (about 100) accounts I’m tracking in my application. And I want to get status on that accounts for every user that uses my app.
Currently to get if any of those 100 users is streaming I have to make 1 request per user to twitch api like this:{username} after that I’m looking for “stream” node in response and get information from it (stream-screenshot, viewers number etc)

Important thing: I’m not making any of those request on my backend server all is implemented at client side (no caching for now)

I wonder if there any single request for that purpose that I can pass list of ids or screen-names
Something like this maybe: /kraken/streams?users=username1,username2,…

Thanks in advance

UPDATE 1: /search/streams didn’t work well for me
I tried this one:
passing q parameter as username1 OR username2 OR username3 … but it doesn’t give me the same result as 100 separate requests. Also tried different portions of accounts (15, 25, 50 in a single request) combining with limit parameter. Didn’t work

/streams/ will take a channels parameter, like this:,beyondthesummit2,starladder1

It returns one stream object for each active stream. There was someone experiencing some issues when requesting a high number of channels, I believe there is a cap to how many you can put in at once(50, 100 maybe?). To take care of that, you could split up the list into multiple requests.

Thank you so much. It looks like it’s working!

I think that the number of streams you can include depends on the URL length. Some servers cannot handle URLs beyond a certain number of characters.
