How is November so far? Let’s chase your clouds away with a little update from Gimbl. This is more of a mid release note, which means most of the changes are for a smoother user experience. That being said, we have something really cool to keep you delighted when waiting for the big update coming in December.
For starters, the Gimbl app now has a Twitch Chatbot which will assist you in interacting with your viewers and informing them on what’s happening. To be more specific, the Gimbl bot will tease your viewers to challenge you by pushing your Gimbl link to the chat; it will also react to challenges received/won/failed and send a recap when your game ends. We understand your pain points when the bot is too spammy, therefore we have included multiple messages to rotate in order to keep it fresh and humanized.
Next up, users can now select any custom outcome for challenges. This change is intended to offer your audience more freedom and flexibility when choosing the number of goals for you to complete.
On top of that, a QR code with a link to your Gimbl page is now available to add to the overlay, offering your viewers an easier way to reach your challenge page.
And last but not least, we can finally welcome Australian streamers to join us in the fun. Howdy mates!
That’s it for the main updates. Head below for all the new changes coming to Gimbl V1.2.1. We’ll see you in the next big surprise in December.
