Streamers are able to get support with the app from their fans, and cheer with bits too. One major update is the voice and video calls feature. Now, up to five people can chat in full HD using the Twitch app.
Servers, Friends & More
A neet feature of the Twitch app is the way to setup virtual homes for your communities, and allow them to watch, play, or chat together. This can occur even when a stream is offline.
Friends can be synced across devices too, and that keeps all friends easily reachable within the app. Lastly, various addons and overlays can be added to the app, and make the app that much better.
You can download the Twitch desktop app starting now. It’s a free download and perfect for Twitch streamers & viewers.
