If you want to install and use the Twitch: Live Game Streaming app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Twitch: Live Game Streaming in the search bar and press Search. Click on Twitch: Live Game Streaming application icon. A window of Twitch: Live Game Streaming on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

    While the app wasn’t the best for mobile streaming, or watching older videos (had plenty of times where the video would reset entirely after watching an ad, or just randomly flicker and then reset back to the start of the video), it did work well enough, though I still don’t understand why the method of getting bits by watching ads was removed from mobile, despite already giving barely any bits by comparison to what you would get for watching an ad on your computer. The recent change of adding “recommended channels” to the home screen is buggy for me and doesn’t actually load correctly (being stuck with the initial error message as well as the “recommended channels”), but reloading the page works as a workaround for now. I personally find most of the recommendations, despite being a push to make me watch more content... distasteful, as most of them are people I followed and didn’t want to see again as the community was either to exclusive, or I didn’t really connect with the streamer. So honestly, it shouldn’t go on the home page where I have my listing of what I started watching, and the streamers I do want to watch and am following. (More to follow
  • A major suggestion

    I did not know this app defaults to auto play. Not to say there’s anything wrong with auto playing streams themselves but I was not aware of it and as a result I assumed a stream would end if I let the phone be. Halfway through a late night stream, I fell asleep without worries. However, I woke up and found my phone went from 100% to 13%. The streams stopped it from naturally falling into sleep mode after I unplugged it and set it to low power mode. This night of nonstop video playing no doubt harmed my phone battery’s maximum capacity, meaning it will be quicker to drop to 0% in the future and I did not intend for that. My suggestion is that you please make a pop up for mobile that stops the stream, live or otherwise, and asks the viewer “Are you still there?” after one or two auto plays have already occurred without outside input. If there’s no further response, the phone can fall into sleep mode. If there is someone still watching, they’ll tap ‘Yes’ and keep watching. Anyway, I’ve turned off auto play in settings, so this problem won’t happen for me again. But I still I wouldn’t want any people starting out with this app to make the same mistake I did.

    It’s not a bad app but it would be nice to be able to subscribe and donate to people straight from the app. Besides all that the Twitch app seems to have been working just fine for me for quite some time now. I really enjoy being able to watch my friends and favorite streamers while on the go. It’s also a great time passer when sitting at my psychiatrists office and having a 3-4 hour wait just to see my doctor for 5 to 10 minutes. I don’t know anything about the live streaming part because I just use the mobile app to watch. But as far as that it seems to work pretty good. It would be PERFECT if they’d implement the “subscribe” and “donate” buttons somewhere in the app though. Maybe put it on the screen next to the “follow/heart” button on the actual stream video. Ive looked everywhere on the app and hadn’t been able to find the sub or donate anywhere on the app and will feel pretty stupid if it’s been there the whole time but none of my friends or viewers have been able to find it either. Please update this app and add those 2 things and people would probably use the app a lot more!
  • Unstable as of late

    I used to never have problems with twitch, it was one of the apps I used to always get on and just watch a stream for fun. After a while I left because had life things to handle. But recently I decided it was a good time to get back on twitch. Was I wrong, yes and no. While the audio is fine without video, I’ve had troubles watching a stream and have audio at the same time. While the video plays just fine, it’s the audio that don’t work well on the stream. While I’ve been thinking maybe it could be my end, but when it’s been constant, I just don’t see the point in watching anything. Another thing, you removed the option to switch from 720 to something like 480, how can you test something to make sure it’s not your end if you actually take away a feature that was fine to begin with. I get the times are changing and technology is getting more and more advanced, trust me, I was born in the age of technology’s very beginnings of taking over. Just fix the stability of the app please, is that so much to ask. And please just add back a 480p button just for the users who can’t watch in 720.

  • Good for casual viewing, not good for real interaction.

    It’s great if you just want to pop in and watch someone. But you have to jump through hoops to see the streamers panels, and you can’t sub to them unless they provide a link. I think these are big issues and would greatly benefit twitch if they enabled better user ability.

    The recommended videos are frustrating. I don’t want to see streamers I’m not even remotely interested in. If I wanted recommendations or to find new channels I’d go to the ‘discover’ section. I also discovered the app lags and I won’t be live live-that is, watching a live stream in the app I will be several seconds or even a minute behind viewers on pc. Not worth it even for a free app. Just use the pc version folks. The app is useless

    Always bugs. Now audio only or playing in background is choppy and audio is broken.

    A few thing I will personally like is that we should be able to sub through ITunes funds. And sometimes the app crashes for no reason. If you do fix that then I’ll make it 5 stars.
