LilyPichu will be streaming exclusively on YouTube moving forward, the OfflineTV content creator, artist, musician and voice actress announced Thursday. Details of the exclusivity agreement were not made public.

The announcement was made across LilyPichu's social media channels, complete with a personal, professional trailer seen similarly with others who have switched to the YouTube Gaming platform in recent years.

"I had so much fun on twitch," LilyPichu tweeted. "I can't wait to have just as much fun on youtube!!!"

The trailer itself features the ever-stressful decision of choosing between the Twitch purple and the YouTube red. Luckily for Lily, her Pomeranian, Temmie, ultimately makes the final call to join YouTube.

"Good decision," LilyPichu said in the video.

On June 30, LilyPichu celebrated her 10-year streaming anniversary on Twitch, a journey that's often seen her collaborate with friends (and now fellow YouTube Gaming ambassadors) Sykkuno and Valkyrae.

Lily is the latest major streamer to leave Twitch for YouTube, joining the likes of Jack "CouRage" Dunlop, Tim "TimTheTatman" Betar, Benjamin "DrLupo" Lupo and Ludwig Ahgren, in addition to the aforementioned Infernal Twins duo.

LilyPichu is also the first and only OfflineTV member to sign an exclusive deal with YouTube so far, with Pokimane, Scarra, DisguisedToast, QuarterJade, Masayoshi, Sydeon and yvonnie all still going strong on Twitch.

Lily's debut YouTube stream took place in a semi-Q&A fashion Friday, with the content creator star currently traveling with OfflineTV for its Japan Trip.

As part of the festivities, LilyPichu is set to host a Gaming IRL at Joypolis stream July 14 at 9 p.m. ET.
