Live streaming made easy

There are over 220,000 streamers on Twitch broadcasting your favorite games and interacting with the community. It's a great way to learn, experience and find your tribe.

Twitching with excitement

Watch your favorite streamers from your mobile device on Twitch, the popular game streaming platform that's kid-friendly.

Twitch is one of the most popular game streaming services available. You're able to purchase monthly subscriptions or donate to support your favorite streamers. There are many streamers to watch, and you're almost guaranteed to find your favorite game somewhere on the app.

With there being over 220,000 streamers on Twitch and an average of 2.2 to 3.2 million broadcasts per month. This means there's always something you'll enjoy, especially if you join in the large community and chat on videos, as almost every streamer has an active chat bar section. In here you can interact with the streamer and viewers, asking questions or trying for prizes.

Twitch has a notifications feature. You can use it to receive a message when your favorite content creators go live. Sadly, there is no way to watch a stream that you missed, except for the clips taken by other viewers. These clips are often named after the event contained within.

The chat function is another great tool to experience the community. When chatting, you have the option to change your screen's orientation. Portrait mode will show you both the screen and chat section, while landscape will have the chat take over your entire screen when you access it.

Where can you run this program?

Twitch is available on IOS, Android, Windows 7, and Mac OSX 12. You can also access it on your web browser

Is there a better alternative?

No. The only other popular video site for gamers and other live-streams is YouTube. However, YouTube's content is aimed at planned, recorded videos, in contrast to the live broadcasts of Twitch.

Our take

Twitch is an amazing way to experience your favorite games and watch creative content. It's all live, and you can quickly interact with other viewers.
