Almost every gamer out there loves Twitch! The live streaming platform allows you to watch gaming, sports, videos, and other content.
Why watch Twitch?
Twitch has millions of daily active users and roughly 3 million broadcasters every month. This gives you so much content to consume that you won’t ever run out of it. But, unfortunately, the option of the real-time live stream, broadcasting esports competitions, and course, the hilarious fails to make the Twitch app fun and addictive.
You can even live chat while gaming, make customized memes and emojis, and earn money as a streamer on this fantastic app!
Why stream the Twitch app on TV?
Since the content is so cool and high-quality, it feels more exciting watching it on a bigger screen. In addition, the Chromecast device lets you cast content from your phone to your TV or speakers easily. Thus, when Twitch finally came on Chromecast, the news was well-received by gamers worldwide.
When you Chromecast Twitch on a bigger screen or a speaker, the in-app entertainment becomes more enthralling. Imagine randomly browsing the Twitch app on your phone and coming across a brilliant video on Dark Souls. But, alas, the phone’s small screen is not doing justice to it. On the other hand, if you have a Chromecast device at home, you can instantly cast that Twitch video on your TV.
The Chromecast can also be easily controlled via the Google Home app.
How to Chromecast Twitch on TV?
There are two ways to cast Twitch on your TV via a Chromecast device. They are as follows:
