Tyler “Trainwreck” Niknam has continued to spread the good word of Kick.

Trainwreck has been on Kick for a while now, a Twitch rival that’s backed by the CEO of gambling site Stake. Kick has been touted as a more lucrative platform for streamers that has fewer regulations and guidelines. Streamers like Corinna Kopf have moved to Kick to continue gambling streams.

Now, Trainwreck has told the streaming community that more features are on the way — and it may even be better than Twitch.

Kick to get clip system

Twitch has long been the most successful streaming platform out there. YouTube Gaming and Facebook Gaming haven’t come close when it comes to viewership, and other rivals like Mixer were forced to shut down despite signing big names like Tyler “Ninja” Blevins.

Kick is the latest platform looking to go head-to-head with the Microsoft-owned company. While its initial promise was a better revenue split in favor of streamers and more lax streaming regulations, it looks like Kick has even more in store for potential streamers.

Trainwreck has come forward to confirm that there are some new features coming to Kick. Clips will be coming to Kick soon, he said, adding that it will be “better” than what Twitch currently has.

“I didn’t like Twitch’s stale clips system that requires us to view Reddit to see trending clips. So we’re working to add a ‘TikTok-like’ system for discoverability on clips to help all creators expand their reach to help with growth,” Trainwreck explained.

Basically, Kick is planning to have a section on the platform that shows trending clips, similar to how people scroll through a For You feed on TikTok. This will help people discover new streamers and see entertaining clips without having to look for something specific.

The feature is still a day away, so it’s unclear how it will ultimately end up working.
