Twitch announces mobile broadcasting functionality


Gamers will soon be able to stream and capture their mobile gameplay directly through Twitch. The new Twitch Mobile Software Development Kit, which was announced today, will give mobile developers the ability to build streaming functionality directly into the app.

“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,” said Twitch's VP of Marketing Matthew DiPietro. “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.”

Below are some of the features that the Twitch Mobile SDK will offer:

  • 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
