Multitask like a boss with our Pop-Out Player for Android
Never miss a second of your favorite Twitch broadcasts with our new mobile Pop-Out Player. Rolling out on Android first, this feature lets you watch a broadcast even when you’re outside of our app.
This means you won’t have to choose between playing Hearthstone and watching it, texting your friends or keeping tabs on a new speedrun, or any other thing your multitasking heart desires. Now, you can do all of it at the same time.
Here’s how our new Pop-Out Player works:
To enable the feature simply tap the pop-out icon* located on the bottom right corner of the video player or access it via the Settings cog.
Once in pop-out mode, you can change the size of the player with your fingers.
To exit pop-out mode, tap the pop-in icon on the left of the player. This returns you to the app and resumes the broadcast from where you left off.
*If you’re on a smartphone, this pop-out icon is only visible in landscape mode.
