Twitch offers Watch Parties for smartphone users
Change is underway at Twitch, where the streaming platform is extending its partnership with Amazon Prime Video to users of Android and iOS devices.
Previously, the platform only allowed users to stream series or movies available on Amazon Prime Video on its web version. This option has now been extended to mobile users.
To use this new feature, users will still need an Amazon Prime Video subscription. However, Twitch users will now be able to enjoy Watch Parties on Android and iOS smartphones, the streaming platform announced.
This option allows users to stream content from the Amazon Prime Video catalog online. Users of the platform can then connect to a live broadcast and participate in a chat at the same time as the others.
Until now, Watch Parties were only accessible through the streaming platform’s website, giving Amazon Prime Video subscribers a restricted way to access this feature on Twitch.
While it will now be easier to follow a movie or series on Twitch via Watch Parties, some broadcast content may be inaccessible to some users, depending on their location. This is because the content available on Amazon Prime Video varies from country to country. – AFP Relaxnews
