Video game live streaming hours watched Q1 2020

The world of video gaming has evolved from a single player experience to a social occasion where players can meet to play games together and watch others play online. In January 2020, a combined 1.2 million hours of live video game streams were watched across the world, a figure which rose to 6.8 million hours in April 2020. This significant rise can be attributed to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which forced many people to stay indoors and turn to gaming as a form of entertainment.
