Twitch has removed the PlayStation 4's AR sandbox app, The Playroom
, from its browsing options after a few people used the app to stream unsavory, non-gaming activities
"We removed Playroom
content from the directory because a majority of it was non-gaming related," a Twitch spokesperson tells Joystiq. "We will look into adding it back as PS4 owners become more familiar with the games-only focus of Twitch content. In the meantime, you can view all of the amazing gameplay from PS4 broadcasters in this
directory page on Twitch."
Twitch previously mentioned on Twitter that it was monitoring Playroom
streams, reminding followers that content must be about games or gaming
, as outlined in its Terms of Service. A few Playroom
streams have been archived in Twitch's search, including our live review of the app

Twitch stream isn't a bannable offense.
