Twitch is a great platform to watch broadcasters playing games, regardless of the platform they are playing it on, and having gamers watching them do that or the latest eSports event. However, one major feature that has always been missing from the mobile application has been the ability to properly support your favorite streamer with a subscription.
There are only a few applications for mobile devices in that ‘instant streaming’ category of things. One of those is Periscope, where you start up the application on your phone or tablet and using your devices and the Periscope app, stream whatever you are doing in real life to people who feel like tuning in to watch. This can be anything from event coverage and interviews at shows like E3, down to watching someone eat french fries.
Having been out on iOS for a few weeks now under a beta tag, Mobcrush has finally announced the arrival of the Android beta as well. This puts the company in position to possible snag a good chunk of the mobile game streaming market. That, of course, depends on a few key factors.
The rush to see who can capture the mobile game streaming market is heating up even more. Currently Mobcrush is still only available on iOS, the company is still working on a beta for Android. This leaves Twitch and YouTube Gaming as the front runners to capture the Android market share for mobile game streaming. DeNA does have their app as well, called Mirrativ, but as it stands that application still needs a bunch of features.
Well today is the official Day 1 of E3 2015, with yesterday being technically Day 0 since it is just press conferences all day, and even though the press conference day was yesterday, there is still some happening today as well. There is also plenty of live coverage of the actual E3 show floor as well happening.
This year E3 2015 has a lot of coverage available live to watch, which means plenty of live streams will be available. A lot of this is thanks to the new permissions that E3 has given to Twitch users, allowing them to co-broadcast the press conferences live on their own channel. However other companies are live streaming as well such as YouTube, who is covering E3 as well. In other words there is a lot of live coverage available.
So E3 2012 is underway right now officially with some of the press events and new conferences. However plenty of sites are going to be streaming E3 2012 live from the showroom floor as well. Hitting up all these sites is just a pain in the ass sometimes so we have decided to collect all the top streams and place them here for you to enjoy!
The TwitchTV Android app received its first update today that resolves one of the biggest gripes individuals had with the app. We mentioned in our review how TwitchTV only played back lower quality streams regardless of how good your connection was. With today’s update, TwitchTV now allows for a higher resolution option for devices running versions of Android prior to 3.2 Honeycomb.
