Twitch Streaming Is Coming To Mobile Games

March 5, 2014
Twitch has announced the release of the Twitch mobile software development kit (SDK). The software allows developers to add Twitch live streaming and integration directly into their iOS games. Additionally, the Twitch mobile SDK allows video capture from a mobile device’s front camera, and audio capture through internal or external microphones. Full features of the new SDK include:
  • The ability to capture and broadcast gameplay video and audio
  • Video capture from the front-facing camera
  • Audio capture using an internal or external microphone
  • Videos can be archived for immediate viewing on Twitch and uploaded for sharing
  • Broadcast quality can be toggled between High, Medium, and Low settings
  • Robust chat options including emoticons badges and chat colors
  • The easy discovery of related broadcasts from other gamers
According to Matthew DiPietro, Twitch’s vice president of marketing:
Our vision is to provide the Twitch community with the ability not only to view, but to broadcast live video game content wherever they are, whether they're on the go or in the living room. We’ve achieved that with our PC and console integrations, so the trifecta will soon be complete with our deep and concerted foray into mobile broadcasting.”
Created by, Twitch is the world's largest video platform and community for gamers. The service receives 45 million visitors each month. The free TwitchTV app for iOS arrived in 2012. The universal app is available to download on the App Store.
