Video streaming service Twitch has added a new audio-only feature to its iOS app, the company has revealed.
According to a new Twitch blog post, the new mode allows Apple device owners to continue listening to the audio feed of a stream, including when the app has been minimized or the device has been locked.
The feature is activated from the video options menu in the app, and users can pause playback and view broadcast information from the lock screen of their hardware.
When asked if the addition will make it to Twitch’s Android app, a company representative wouldn’t directly confirm, instead responding:
"Our Android app is getting a lot of internal attention. I can’t give ETAs but, I think for those platform users you will be pretty darn happy when you see what we are doing."
