Twitch VODs now available on your mobile device

Why wasn’t this available already?

Twitch is pretty much the king of streaming and today the king announced that videos on demand are now available via your mobile device of choice. Considering how long Twitch has been around and how popular it has become, it’s kind of odd that it wasn’t available before, but now it is, so there you go.

Here’s some important info from Twitch regarding the update:

You will now be able to watch highlights and past broadcasts from all Twitch Partners and a growing number of broadcasters whose videos are HLS enabled.

Available VODs are found on a channel’s Activity Feed. There are two ways to get there:

  • If you’re watching a live channel, tap the Activity Feed icon located on the player. For iOS this is on the top left of the player, and for Android it’s on the bottom left.
  • If you’re on the Search page or Following directory, tapping any offline channel will also take you directly to the Activity Feed.

Keep in mind, due to some security concerns, Twitch said Android users will need to download and install the app again.
