Another annoying fact is that if you accidentally click out of the video and reenter, you will have to go through the pre-roll ad again.
Intrusive ad issues can be negated to an extent in the Twitch web app. There are plenty of ad blockers for browsers that can block both pre-roll and on-page ads successfully.
Accessibility and Portability
The Twitch app shines when it comes to accessibility and portability. If you are a streamer, you can use the smartphone camera to stream and not be dependent on an external imaging device.
The Twitch app is a boon for vloggers who stream on the fly. While the customization options are limited and some features can be buggy, but it offers a lot of flexibility for vloggers.
Performance and experience
The Twitch app does a lot of things right, especially for the vloggers who fancy streaming on the fly.
Regular users can chat with any twitch users they have added as friends, make voice and video calls, and even share your screen.
However, due to its lack of customization options and occasional performance issues, it is not ideal for game streamers. The app also lacks add-on enhancements that come with BetterTV and FrankerFaceZ add-ons.
While the Twitch app is prone to occasional glitches and performance issues, the web app of the popular streaming platform offers overall better performance to streamers and the viewers.
Which one should I choose?
The Twitch app offers flexibility to the users who want to watch streams and vloggers on the go. It also comes with voice chatting, text, and video calling options.
However, if you are a streamer who streams from home or office, the Twitch web app on browser offers more features and reliability than the mobile app.
And if you don’t want to be forced to watch ads even with a Prime account, the web app can be paired with an ad blocker extension to get rid of intrusive ads.
As you can see, the decision comes down to your specific situation, depending on what you value most in your day-to-day experience of using Twitch.
