Amazon renames Twitch Prime to Prime Gaming

Don’t worry, all the perks are staying the same

After four years, Twitch Prime is no more. Instead, the premium version of Twitch membership has been renamed to Prime Gaming, to better fit within the lineup of Amazon’s other Prime services.

Twitch Prime is part of the many benefits Amazon Prime members get, including Prime Music and Prime Video. But because it had a completely different name, Twitch Prime didn’t exactly fit into the company’s standard benefits list, and didn’t have the same association those other products and subscriptions have. With the new Prime Gaming name, the service should fit just right into a list of Amazon Prime benefits.

Other than the name, nothing else about the service is changing. Prime Gaming will offer the same free games and in-game exclusive items as Twitch Prime, and the free subscription to one Twitch channel a month that many Prime members — and streamers — enjoyed. Prime Gaming members can visit the service’s page on Amazon to see all in-game the benefits that are currently available.
