You can now livestream games to Twitch from your Sony Xperia device

Twitch Streaming Sony

Twitch has teamed up with Sony to launch an Android app for broadcasting your mobile gameplay on its video platform. However, It only works with a few Xperia devices at present.

Available for Sony’s Xperia Z3+, Z4 and Z4v phones as well the Z4 Tablet, the cleverly named Live Screen Streaming app lets you share in-game footage from any title straight to Twitch or YouTube.

You can also use it to stream any other apps or activity from your device’s screen. The on-screen overlay shows you how many people are watching your stream and commenting on it. There’s also an option to save your footage to your device instead of broadcasting right away.

This is Sony’s second app for streaming directly to a video service. In February, the company unveiled a tool which allows Xperia users to livestream camera footage directly to YouTube.
