Overview: Multiplayer games have always been social. Back in the day, gamers played together in the basement or living room. However, today most players squad up online within the comfort of their own home online. These social trends are emerging in e-sports as well with watch party apps being leveraged as a way for friends to connect with one another and discuss strategies as they watch their favorite streamers. In this session, we'll explore why you need voice/video chat directly embedded in your games, how to make e-sports experiences more engaging, and how to easily enable these experiences to increase user session time and user monetization.
