Twitch arrives on Chromecast

"The latest in a line of products and features that make it easy to have a living room Twitch experience"

Video broadcasting platform Twitch is now available on Google's digital media service Chromecast.

"We are often asked if Twitch will ever be available on TV. My response is, we already are. Our Xbox and Playstation integrations make it a one-click process to watch Twitch on your big screen," said VP of marketing​ Matthew DiPietro.

"Chromecast is the latest in a line of products and features that make it easy to have a 'living room' Twitch experience. It's been one of the most requested features from our community so we're excited to get it into the wild."

The Chromecast device, which currently costs $35, also allows users to stream music and TV shows from a phone, tablet or laptop.
