Nintendo Switch is probably the most popular handheld console out there that has stood the test of time. Despite being five years old in 2021 it still doesn’t support many mainstream content streaming services out there.
Up until yesterday, Twitch wasn’t available on Nintendo Switch. Luckily, that has changed now. The official Twitch app is now available for Nintendo Switch.
In a blog post on Thursday, Twitch stated that,
“Starting today, all the Twitch goodness you care about from gaming to music, to exciting live esports — it’s all available on your Nintendo Switch. With millions of unique creators every day streaming everything under the sun, if it’s worth watching, it’s live on Twitch right now.”
Twitch further added that,
“Join the millions of fans worldwide connecting over their shared love of gaming, music, pretty much everything else you can think of, and the people who stream it. Download the Twitch app from the Nintendo Switch eShop today.”
