Twitch’s mobile app is getting a huge update


Game streaming service Twitch is making some big changes to its app on iOS and Android. The overhaul will include a number of features the company says have been long-requested by fans. That includes major functionality tweaks, like the ability to stream directly on mobile from the app, as well as more aesthetic changes, like the addition of a dark mode. Here’s the full list of new features, according to Twitch:

  • Navigation bars: easier access to features including “live,” “pulse,” and “browse”
  • Pulse: “Twitch’s new content recommendation and discovery feed”
  • Swipe Surfing: new swiping gesture that lets you quickly do things like select new streams or access playlists
  • Instant playlists: “A collection of content accessible by swiping down on the screen”
  • Mobile Streaming: a new option that lets streamers start a stream directly to their channel via the Twitch app on mobile
  • Language ranking: featured streams organized based on certain languages and regions
  • Dark mode
  • Notifications: mobile notifications now match the desktop experience

Twitch says the new version of the app is rolling out now, and should be available to everyone by early July.
