The SDK for developers was released today,and it will allow users to use their mobile's audio and camera.

"Our vision is to provide the Twitch community with the ability not only to view, but to broadcast live video game content wherever they are, whether they're on the go or in the living room," said VP of marketing Matthew DiPietro.

"We've achieved that with our PC and console integrations, so the trifecta will soon be complete with our deep and concerted foray into mobile broadcasting."

The Twitch Mobile SDK will offer a number of features that "align with the current Twitch broadcasting offerings" available on PC and consoles. These include:

● The ability to capture and broadcast gameplay video and audio

● Video capture from the front-facing camera

● Audio capture using an internal or external microphone

● Videos can be archived for immediate viewing on Twitch and uploaded for sharing

● Broadcast quality can be toggled between High, Medium, and Low settings

● Robust chat options including emoticons badges and chat colors

● The easy discovery of related broadcasts from other gamers

The Twitch Mobile SDK announcement comes on the heels of the firm's recent milestone of more than 10 million installs of the Twitch app.

The firm said the installs were "evenly split" between the Android and iOS versions.
