Game streaming platform Twitch has updated its Android app with support for Android TV, so users can watch top players score epic goals in Rocket League in their living rooms.

The app lets you watch live broadcasts and recorded streams of games and esports events. You can also follow channels and games to keep up-to-date with new content. Twitch says it supports streams at Full HD resolution and 60 frames per second, so gameplay should look buttery smooth.

The latest version of the app also brings an improved private messaging experience. Tap the Whispers icon in the top right corner and you’ll be able to view recent messages, and jump into your conversations from there.
