Allow the use of overlays alerts etc while using game screen share!
I have seen it suggested.
BUT ITS NOT BEING ACKNOWLEDGED
I am an avid user of iPhone mobile games. So my suggestion is limited to my experience only.
Recently changes were made to update users of the twitch stream games option for screen sharing/streaming but I hope you don’t forget that we want display features like any other streamer would have access to. Not only do they improve the look of a stream they allow us to interact better with our audience. If I can’t see chat how can I engage honestly and in real time?
Weeks of my tinkering with both twitch and obs apps have lead me to believe it’s not possible to stream and use overlays and widgets/alerts etc while using a mobile game unless you use the screen mirror/share option with a PC and obs or at the very least have a second mobile device.
I can mention all the work around a and failures and also how it’s game specific which drives me bonkers but bottom line this is inconvenient for me as a content provider. And I really enjoy twitch. So I want to see it changed and I want to be here when it does.
Whether this is game related or device related please consider the option to add some basic/minimal form of integration of our widgets and obs overlays to our mobile stream via the twitch app. Jump on this now.
The reason I stress this more is that YouTube and other competitors are already working on it.
Twitch needs to be the pioneer of the ever growing mobile game streaming market. Not just because a small streamer like me needs the features to grow but because all streamers should have the mobility that the technology already provides within the streaming service they use for games!!
Game streamers need chat, alerts etc just as much as cam streamers.
I can’t imagine the work it will take to get this done. I know you are smart people and have been working on the games share feature tirelessly. I have already seen updates like I said! Thank you for always asking for feedback after the stream and...
That’s it. TIA
