Our Nvidia Shield Android TV console has finally arrived today. We thought it was going to arrive yesterday, but apparently today is the day instead. Either way, we are going to stream the unboxing of our Nvidia Shield Android TV console, open everything up, and hook it up before jumping into some games while playing on the Shield console.
While this won’t be the first year Twitch will be covering the big video game conference E3, this will be the first year that users have rights to re-broadcast/co-stream the streams while they are live as well as adding commentary to them. While at first this may not seem like a big thing, but this means that streamers will be able to sit with their audience and watch E3 2015 together while talking to their fans about whatever is currently going on.
The Twitch application for mobile devices keeps getting better and better and this new update that arrived today is no exception to that either. This latest update brings another feature a lot of people have been wanting for some time: on-demand VODs to watch.
TwitchTV has updated their Android app today and this update brings a couple of great features to the app, one of which has been sorely needed. This new update brings the Persistent Player to the app which basically means that video will now continue to play while you re browsing for content.
Mojang will be hosting a public Q&A session on their TwitchTV channel later this week regarding Minecraft: Pocket Edition which means that this will be an excellent opportunity to ask the questions you may have regarding the game, or what is coming in the future, directly to the developers themselves.
Microsoft has announced, and put into place, a formal new policy regarding the creation of YouTube Let’s Play videos as well as content streamed on services like TwitchTV. Up until now the company didn’t really have a formal policy geared towards this type of content creation. Since streaming on TwitchTV has become a lot easier with Android games and making YouTube videos of Android games has been happening for a long time, this certainly is something to learn about if you plan on streaming or including anything from Microsoft in your upcoming videos and want to monetize them.
