Gameloft’s Asphalt 8: Airborne is the first mobile game to make use of the new Twitch app for iOS.

Asphalt 8

Making use of your iOS device’s front-facing camera and microphone, the game can be overlaid with video of your face and audio of your voice, and streamed directly to your Twitch channel. Users will also be able to archive and share their streams, as well as monitor the discussion from their viewers, from within the game.

To demonstrate the new features, Gameloft will be broadcasting a 24-hour livestream of the game, including a walk-through of the streaming options, giveaways, interviews with the dev team and a Q&A with viewers, from the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this week.
