Twitch for Android update brings support for video on demand


twitch mobile video on demand

Game watchers will be happy to know that the Twitch app has received a huge upgrade over at Google Play. There’s one major highlight within a sea of other under-the-hood improvements and fixes — video on demand.

This means you can now watch past broadcasts and highlights of a channel right from within the app. This functionality was previously only available through Twitch’s desktop site, which doesn’t exactly play too nicely on a mobile browser.

To access the archives of a particular channel, all you’ll need to do is find the video reel icon at the upper left corner whenever the information overlay is visible (you can make it visible by tapping anywhere within the video player). Tap that, and you’ll see a nice full list of videos waiting for you to watch, with the ability to scrub as fast and as far as you want.

Now you won’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn or stay up unreasonable hours to see what your favorite streamers have been up to. Be sure to grab the upgrade from Google Play as soon as possible.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    1. Looks like a Nexus 5 on the left and a iPhone on the right. Or maybe they’re just mock-ups.

      1. mock ups makes the most sense….its really a mix of 2 phones, weird.
