The beta is rolling out now to what Twitch says is a limited group of streamers. While you can apply to be in it, it is not exactly guaranteed entry and only a few people will make the first batch.
Nevertheless, it does show that Twitch is taking the concerns of its userbase seriously, even as Microsoft’s Mixer shows signs of life.
