Chain Twitch streams infinitely with this new update.
The latest update for the iOS and Android Twitch app adds the capability to watch a video while browsing other content, letting users keep an eye on one broadcast while looking for the next stream to watch. The Amazon-owned livestreaming video company has found yet another way to keep its more than 65 million users’ faces glued to the screen and tuned into its more than 1 million game-focused content streamers.
Much like YouTube’s mobile app, the Twitch update has a video constantly playing, though viewers can swipe away should they want the full screen for browsing. Android users (version 4.3+ and after) get a bonus audio-only mode that lets them listen to broadcasts in the background, even if the device is locked.
