Latest Twitch update brings push notifications for broadcasters you follow
If Twitch for Android is your go-to game streaming app of choice, there should be a pretty nice update heading your way any minute now. Twitch is being updated to version 4.4 today, which brings support for push notifications for broadcasters you follow, a new landscape chatting option on tablets and a few other new features.
The big news with this update, though, is that you’ll now have the ability to receive push notifications from any broadcasters you follow. To enable this feature, you’ll need to navigate to Settings from within the app, then toggle the Live Notifications switch to on. If you’re a new user, you don’t need to do anything to get push notifications – this feature will already be live when you install the application.
If you happen to change your mind about getting live notifications from a specific channel, you can turn off this feature on a per-channel basis by tapping on the Options cog from within the video player.
But that’s not all! The Twitch app will now allow you to chat with other users in landscape mode if you’re on an Android tablet. Also, the search bar is now visible across devices of all sizes. If you have yet to grab the latest update, Twitch version 4.4 should now be live in the Play Store. Follow the link below for the download!
