RECENT ANNOUNCEMENTS
Steam Summer Sale and Live Streaming
  • Setup your stream like normal so that it would appear on your Steam product page. Go here if you need help setting this up.
  • Once you have 10 concurrent viewers, we will start showing the stream on the relevant Tag Hub Page and Genre Hub pages.
  • Once you have 100 concurrent viewers, it makes you eligible to appear on the front page. The Steam store will randomly select from all available streams with a 100 or more viewers to take the live streaming spot.

Streamer Whitelist and Chat Moderation
  1. A ranked streamer white list.

    Until recently, you would need to choose a single Steam account to stream onto your product page (done on the steamworks site). You would need to re-publish your app everytime you ever need to change to another Steam user. Making it challenging to schedule multiple streamers.

    Now you have add multiple permitted streamers at one time. You can rank them by their priority in case multiple of them are streaming your game at the same time. The rank provide instructions to Steam on which stream to favour and then feature on your product page.

    It is important that the streamer enters the appid to complete the association. If they do not have the appid entered or the wrong appid, then the stream would not appear on the product page or surface to the front page (once the viewership minimums are met).

  2. Our second attempt at adding chat moderator support.

    Using the new friends interface, you can now promote your friends to help moderate your broadcast chat. The moderators will be able to click on the offending message and choose to either mute the individual for some time or to remove all of their messages from the chat (and from any viewers chat box).

The Steam store broadcast documents have been updated with these changes.
