Addresses an issue that prevented chat from resuming properly.
This is a very well designed application that allows users to search and customize their game viewing experience in many ways. One which is most important is that the design makes browsing easy. Not everybody who views games is a heavy gamer or is used to using applications such as these. Users can scroll the gaming channels and simply select one that interests them or select from the heavily promoted and most popular games. There are a wide selection of game titles that are broadcast on the service. After selection users are able to view the gameplay from the channel. From this page users can easily modify screen size from small to full and can also chat with others with the entry space at the bottom of the small screen layout. From my experience and with a good connection gameplay flows easily though you can experience video delays to the audio. If you like a channel you can choose to save and follow the gamer as well as set push notifications for when their channel is live. Twitch is a must have for heavy voyeurs of video games.
One thing that bothers me
This app is great, I use it all the time instead of going on my computer to watch from there. The mobile version is pretty reliable. But there's one bug that is new and has been bothering me ever since the newer updates: I no longer get notified when people I watch start streaming. I don't know if this is just a really minor bug or there's something wrong with the notifications, but I do have them on for some of the people I watch and I never get notified when they're live. Please try to fix this. Other than that, great app. ❤️
Better than cable!
Honestly, this service is better than regular tv for people who enjoy watching video games over standard shows. It's an easy way to follow pros and also just get a laugh out of comedians playing your favorite games. And it works beautifully as well, I can't remember and times I had a problem that took away from the experience. I would defiantly recommend using this service to any of my friends.
