Twitch app updated with support for split view, slide over, and more on iPad

If you're a big fan of watching game streamers do their thing, but want to at least try to stay productive, the latest update to the official Twitch app should be right up your alley. The app now supports the iPad multitasking features that came as part of iOS 9, including split view, slide over, and picture-in-picture. There's also a bit more to note in this update; here's the breakdown:

  • Our multitasking features for iOS 9 lets you do more stuff, all while watching Twitch! This includes new Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture modes.
  • When you click on a Twitch link anywhere, you'll be seamlessly redirected to the app instead of our mobile site (iOS 9 users only).
  • In this and future versions, AirPlay mode must be enabled from your device's Control Center.

Overall, this is a pretty solid update, especially for those that like to keep an eye on their favorite streamers as they go about their other business. To grab the latest Twitch update, hit up the link to the App Store below.
