Twitch app Lakitu updated with Chromecast support (Android)


If you’re among the millions of Twitch users (viewers) who likes to watch gamers from around the world you might be interested in the recently updated Lakitu app. The newest build adds in Chromecast support, bringing new functionality to the Android app.

It’s not an official Twitch client but it’s highly rated so far and the reviews seem pretty positive. The intent behind the app is to create a “better user experience” than the one from Twitch. We’ll let you be the judge of things. While you’re at it, be sure to match it up against Twitchcast.

Features in Lakitu:

  • Navigate Featured Streams, Top Games, Top Channels, and Teams.
  • Watch Videos in many different qualities (Quality: Source, High, Med, Low, Mobile).
  • Cast streams to your ChromeCast
  • Chat while you watch (standalone chat supported too).
  • Full Screen video in landscape.
  • Keeps track of last viewed streams in side navigation.
