How loots works

What is loots & Sponsored Messages?

loots lets viewers send sponsor supported messages to their favorite streamers. Sponsored Messages are branded donations that appear in your stream. Each contains a message from one of your viewers, while the advertiser bears the expense in exchange for screen time (15 seconds) on your live stream. There will also be text and a link posted in your chat, which is related to the loots pop-up banner - we call it loots chat message.
