Apple’s video group-sharing feature is now live on Twitch for iPad and iPhone models.

Twitch iOS

The most recent Twitch update brings SharePlay to iPhone and iPad users. Enabling the feature lets you watch videos and streams with friends over Facetime. Twitch made the announcement over Twitter, saying how users can now watch Twitch with all their friends on iPhone and iPad devices. The company also included a tutorial link on how to get started.

Twitch’s SharePlay page shows that the feature is available for iPads running iPadOS 15.1 or later, and iPhones running iOS 15.1 or later. SharePlay is not available on Apple TV yet, but future updates may see it integrated into Apple’s streaming device.

iPad and iPhone users will need to go into FaceTime and invite people in. With the Twitch app installed, simply pick a stream and tap ‘yes’ when prompted to watch together with the chat participants. Controls such as play and pause will also be synced.
