pixiv will also implement the "Rewards" service which entails the payment of rewards by pixiv Inc. to creators that conduct live streaming. The rewards will reflect the amount of support (e.g. shoutout and comments) that a creator receives during their live streaming session.

What underlies the birth of the "Shoutout" feature
During the development process of the "Shoutout" feature, we stressed the importance of delivering a feature that would allow viewers to convey their desire, which is to support a creator in their effort to complete a work.
The decision to be a creator is a task that can be easily completed solitarily. However, the more a creator immerses themselves in their activity as a creator, the more they will be detached from their bonds with other people.
By conducting live streaming sessions, a creator can change what tends to be a solitude moment spent working into an opportunity to communicate with their viewers. When a creator realizes that there are also other creators out there who conduct live streaming and there are viewers that support them, they will find encouragement to keep creating and the ambition to complete their works. The "Shoutout" feature was developed for the very purpose of enhancing the creators' ambition.
Please use the "Shoutout" feature as a method to let the creators know, in real time, about your reactions and your wish to support them in their effort to complete their work.
