Twitch App For Android Finally Lets You Log Into Your Account


The official Twitch app for Android has been updated to finally add the ability to log into your Twitch account and view the people you’re following. What’s more, after you’ve logged in once, the app will remember your details and automatically sign you in when you open the app.

The ability to log into your Twitch account is a feature the official Twitch app should have had from day one. After all, that’s the main reason you’d want to use Twitch on your phone, right? And the company has acknowledged that in a post on its blog.

“This has been a long time coming as the Android app never allowed for this in the past,” it writes. “It’s all kind of silly in retrospect, so I guess we’ll all just look back on this one day and laugh, yeah?”

Here’s the complete list of changes with Twitch version 1.1.0 for Android:

  • Persistent Login: New to the Twitch App for Android is the ability to login to your Twitch account. Not only that, but the app will also remember you did this and will not ask for your credentials again. Pat your phone on the head, because it’s doing a whiz-bang job here.
  • Following Directory: Watch the channels you’re following on that are currently available for viewing on the app. You’ll need to login in to use this feature.
  • Account Logout: Since we’ve included the ability to login we thought you’d also like to be able to logout. Another technological innovation from your friends at Twitch!
  • Kabam Integration: Choose from an assortment of wonderful mobile games from our friends at Kabam, or continue watching other people play video games. That works, too.

You can download the latest version of the app from Google Play now.
