The streaming channel TWITCH is now available to download onto Nintendo Switch for free via the eShop. The app on the Switch will allow you to do most things you can do on PC or smart devices with a few exceptions. One of which is that you can not use the chat function directly on the Switch. Instead, you can use a QR reader to read a QR code to bring up the chat on your smart device.

Alternatively, you could just use the app Twitch app on your phone to communicate in the chat. This may seem counterintuitive as you are now having to use two devices instead of one but at least you can dedicate the chat on your smart device and watch the stream without having a keyboard take up the screen as you type.

Twitch On Nintendo Switch

Another thing you can’t do with the Twitch app on Nintendo Switch is subscribe to Twitch channels or gift subs. You can follow channels, that is no problem but if you want to subscribe to a channel, you will have to do that on your PC or smart device. Essentially, the Switch app allows you to watch streams and search for streams & users.

For me, I do find the Twitch app on Nintendo Switch relatively useful as I do watch the occasional Livestream on my phone but obviously, the screen is too small when chatting to the streamers, the screen is smaller still. Now I can chat on my phone and watch the stream comfortably on Switch. Sorted!
