Usernames can be a tricky game, once chosen they can’t be replaced so quickly. However, Twitch’s recent announcement dismisses fears related to choosing a perfect username. Starting from today, Amazon’s live-streaming platform will allow you to change your username, once every 60 days. The latest feature has been introduced after the platform received millions of queries requesting an altered username.

According to the Twitch blog and Gom VPN abandoned username will be held by Twitch for a minimum of six months. If a user finds a better identity within that period, it will be returned to the pool of available usernames for others to use. The latest tool takes on Microsoft and Xbox Live which charge a certain amount for swapping usernames unlike Twitch (username can be changed free of cost).

Another major concern while you risk replacing your username is streamer stats. This issue arose while the streaming platform was piloting the feature. But, Twitch even found a solution for the said problem. And this is what needs to be done – you must export your streamer stats prior to changing your username, in order to conserve them. Moreover, the URL will also be adjusted according to the new channel page and hence the old URL will not redirect to your new page. It is necessary to update all your blogs and gaming pages with the fresh URL.

To tap a new username, you simply have to head to ‘Profile Settings’. Besides your username, you’ll now see a new option to make the change and try your hand at courting the desired username. Further, Emily Halpin, Product Marketing Manager at Twitch also wrote in the blog post,

There is a lot to consider when changing your username, but we hope you’ll get some good use out of this tool. Now get out there and change those usernames!

Though if you’re eyeing a username held by an inactive member, your wish will not be granted so soon. Inactive usernames will be subjected to username recycle and reuse policy; as the platform is still against accepting direct requests for distribution of names.
