In general, it’s quite a tricky thing to stream mobile games on Twitch. Especially for games that don’t have Twitch support integrated, the mobile device, the computer and the webcam have to be rigged together, which makes a complicated knot of wires. Thank God for Bluestacks, then, because all this process became much easier through only a couple of clicks.
Bluestacks is a very widespread (and helpful) Android emulator that runs mobile games on PC and Mac. Thankfully, now it comes together with an integrated version of Twitch. What does that mean? It means that you can go live on the biggest livestreaming platform in the world! And the best part is that you don’t even need to touch your phone. You should totally use BlueStacks if you want to brag about your castle in Clash of Clans or simply expose your amazing Hearthstone skills in front of the entire world!
But how to set up BlueStacks?
Step 1: You can go to the www.bluestacks.com website and download the free app for TV. Install it an open it.
Step 2: Connect your Google account to BlueStacks. Click on an app under the Android tab and start One Time Setup. Then you just need to log in to the Google account or create a new one if you don’t have any, and follow the instructions you see on the screen.
