Twitch Releases The Full Version Of Their Desktop App Today

Posted by August 10, 2017 Comment

After being in beta since the Spring, Twitch has released the full version of their desktop app today, which includes some new options for broadcasters that will help deliver the best stream and service they possibly can.

The look itself is going to slightly change to better optimize your ability to access different areas of the social stream service, from streaming to chat to clipping to bits and donations. The idea behind the app is to give you better access to what you need in a hurry. We’ve added some details below from the press release sent out this morning of the new options you’ll be able to access.

Servers
When a stream goes offline, so does its community, but with Twitch Desktop App’s servers, communities have a place to call home 24/7 with text and voice rooms.

Dark Mode

Dark mode makes everything you do on Twitch much more friendly to your eyes. Perfect for late night streams!

Friends

Speaking of friends, with the Twitch Desktop App’s Friend Sync, we’ll help you find all your friends from across the creator-verse.

Voice and Video Calls

On Twitch web, you can private message your friends with Whispers, but in the desktop app you can also get personal with voice and video calls!

Mods and Addons

The Twitch Desktop App also features CurseForge, the legendary game mod community where thousands of mods and add-ons are shared for World of Warcraft, Skyrim, Minecraft, and tons more games.
