The new Chromecast support lets you send live Twitch video from your Android device, iPhone*, iPad* or laptop right to your TV.

Getting started is easy:

  • Open Twitch on your mobile device or laptop.
  • Tap the “cast” icon. On Android and iOS*, this is found on the top right.
    ​Note: For Twitch to Chromecast from the web player, make sure to install the Google Cast extension.

 

​If you are using Twitch on a laptop, you can find the cast icon on the bottom right of the video player.



From there, the live broadcast will play on your TV, while chat remains on your mobile device or laptop. You can also access playback controls on your mobile device, or browse for other content without interrupting the live video on your TV.
