Neowin: Twitch Sings service to close down by the year’s end

Neowin: Twitch Sings service to close down by the year’s end. “In late 2018, Twitch announced a karaoke live-streaming feature called Twitch Sings at TwitchCon 2018. This was part of the video-streaming platform’s initiative to help its streamers ‘grow, connect, and thrive’. Following the initial announcement, the musical game was launched roughly six months later in April 2019. Today a message posted by the Amazon-owned gaming website came to light, revealing that the year-old karaoke service is going to be shut down.”
