One-click mobile game streaming to Twitch with BlueStacks
Apr 7, 2016 8:15 AM –
Today BlueStacks announced a new feature for one-click mobile game streaming to Twitch called BlueStacks TV. If you’ve ever tried to stream your mobile gaming in real-time then you know the challenges in doing so is not cheap nor easy. I’ve heard some who have accomplished this using up to three devices to do it; play on a mobile device, then stream and chat from another device such as a laptop. Allowing an easy mechanism to stream solves a serious headache for mobile gamers in a space that’s huge. This allows users to play, stream and watch insanely popular RPG games like Hearthstone, Castle Clash or Vainglory.
When I first tried it I was impressed that a few folks started to watch me play. We even started chatting from the App Player. It’s very addicting and easy to lose time playing while others are watching. Check out some of my streams to see for yourself!
Note: the setup requires you play and stream your games from the laptop or desktop versus actual mobile device. You also need a system with 8GB RAM or higher to stream but not to watch streams. When you download the latest version of BlueStacks for PC you’ll see a button to stream your gameplay to your Twitch account. You can also can watch streams of others playing similar games via the App Player as well. Check out the vid to see how easy it is to get started streaming the same games on your Android smartphone or tablet through your computer!
