Slide into your friends’ DMs on the go with our first phase of whispers on your mobile device! Starting today, a small sample size of Android users will automatically gain access to our updated whispers functionality. We will continue to roll this out to more and more users until we have gathered enough feedback for a full launch. After we collect enough feedback from our Android users during this soft launch, we will follow things up by getting our iOS friends in on the fun.

Keep in mind that this feature is still in beta. Please submit all your feedback about our whispers update by filling out a feedback report.
Are you ready for more indie gaming goodness? Of course you are.
In this month’s Indie Spotlight, we’re giving you an in-depth look at Space Ape’s Rival Kingdoms: Age of Ruin. It’s a new take on the mobile real-time strategy genre with plenty of action, intriguing backstory, and collaborative guild-based gameplay to go around.
It’s a wide world of gaming out there. We would know. And keeping up with new releases can be overwhelming. Especially those from smaller developers. Well, prepare to be overwhelmed no more.
Introducing the Twitch Indie Spotlight, a special promotions program designed to help smaller game publishers and developers build an indie community on Twitch, and to help viewers discover something new.
Starting this July, Twitch will give an indie developer the chance to highlight a game every month. You’ll be able to watch featured streams, hear from the developers, and check out the game in action right here on Twitch.
The first game in the Indie Spotlight is Vainglory. A new MOBA designed specifically for touch interfaces like iOS and Android. In fact, it was so well designed it received an Apple Design Award at WWDC 2015.
We’ll be celebrating it’s global release LIVE on July 1st with a 24 hour stream. The first two hours will be broadcast directly from Twitch HQ where the developers will take on players from across the globe. We’ll continue the spotlight throughout the month with exclusive streams showcasing the game and all it’s innovative touchy features.

The NVIDIA SHIELD tablet is the first mobile device to integrate Twitch broadcasting. This means that virtually any Android game running on the SHIELD tablet can be broadcast to Twitch with a few simple taps.
It’s an exciting time to be an Android user because today marks the release of version 3.0 of Twitch for Android!
We’ve got an exciting new first today as Gameloft’s Asphalt 8: Airborne for iOS will be the first ever mobile game to feature Twitch’s live broadcasting functionality. The game will debut its broadcasting capabilities during the week of the Game Developers Conference (GDC) with a 24-hour live stream event on Twitch.
