How to switch your Twitch App between Live and Beta versions.

In some cases you may need to switch your Twitch App to our Beta version. This may be because of a bug on the Live version, or a troubleshooting step as fixes are released to Beta for QA before they are released to Live.

If you do not need to be on the Beta version you should switch to Live as there is a higher risk of dealing with bugs or issues and more frequent updates if in Beta.
