As an alternative, you may must scan a QR code, which opens up a streamer’s chat as a webpage in your cellphone, which appears extra manageable than utilizing the Swap’s digital keyboard.
Twitch joins the lineup of different streaming apps that ultimately arrived on the Swap, together with Hulu, YouTube, and Funimation. Heck, there’s even Pokemon TV, however nonetheless no Netflix.
