Video game broadcasting platform Twitch has released an update for its iOS app, bringing new features such as a redesigned chat interface and a live toggle between mobile-ready and desktop-optimized streams. Also, the update increases the amount of viewable channels on the app to 750 channels total, up from 200 previously, and adds integration with live in-game offers from gaming platform Steam.

First and foremost, we’ve greatly increased the number of live channels available on the mobile apps from the top 200 channels, to more than 750 at any given moment. This is an improvement made across all our mobile apps, including Xbox. That number will continue to increase as we improve our HLS capacity on a global level.

Chat has also received a makeover, both on the surface and under the hood. It sports a new, cleaner look, support for emoticons, and is overall more efficient and more stable.

Twitch is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Reading the title, I had no idea what this was all about.

Then, I was like, "Ohhh, you mean Twitch.tv!" Seriously, my brand association is with twitch.tv, not twitch.
