The Viewer Queue system allows Twitch viewers to play with their favorite creator. Creators can use this free feature to open a queue during streams where viewers can join and be selected either at random or on a first come, first serve basis. Loyalty criteria such as Subscribers, Followers, Watch Time, etc. can also be utilized as selection parameters.
