Twitch released a native app for the Nintendo Switch this week. However, the service does not integrate well with PlayStation and Xbox platforms, and features are limited compared to the PC or website version. However, this increases the small but growing number of the Switch's streaming software.
The Twitch app on the switch does not allow you to host a broadcast. Sharing gameplay or casting clips like PlayStation or Xbox isn't built into the switch (although the switch does allow you to share screenshots). Instead, it's just for watching Twitch channels, and it does so by browsing and searching in tabs. Of course, the video quality on the Switch's 720p screen is about as good as can be.
Aside from the lack of streaming hosting, the only significant limitation of Switch's Twitch is that it is not rendered. Streams and chat windows simultaneously. The chat appears on the player screen before you start watching, but requires the use of a mobile device to interact while watching the broadcast. However, this program allows you to use QR codes or activation links to log in without any problems.
This chat while watching a broadcast on the switch causes users to install the Twitch app on the mobile device to get in some way. Since Twitch for iOS and Android already allows chatting while watching a broadcast, it begs the question: Why not simply watch on mobile? p>
The only advantage of using the switch and mobile all I can think of is that if your mobile device is a smartphone with a small screen, it may provide more screens. Separating the two pages into separate pages may be easier for some.
The Switch doesn't stream nearly as well as other consoles, but it does have YouTube, Hulu, and Funimation.>
