Streaming content is nothing new, nor is livestreaming content. Livestreaming games is another story as it has really only gotten wildly popular over the last few years, with even less time in regards to livestreaming mobile games as the mobile space for high-quality games has only recently started taking off. While there are already a few options out there for livestreaming your mobile game sessions through applications while you play, like Stre.am for example, a new option has just launched for competitive mobile gamers as Stre.am just announced that they are integrating the ability to livestream mobile games specifically for eSports events into their platform going forward.
The new mobile integration is intended to be focused on eSports and eSports events, allowing mobile gamers to simultaneously broadcast their screens to a singular giant video board display so viewers can see all of the action at the same time. Although Stre.am mentions that eSports events will be getting the benefit from this new integrated mobile gaming feature, you won’t have to be participating in an eSports event to take advantage of Stre.am’s general capabilities. The Android app has already been available on the Play Store for a while and can be downloaded as of now for anyone who enjoys playing mobile games and wants to stream them for others to watch.
What’s more is that the eSports integration feature Stre.am has announced today will allow for mobile game streaming from events on a global scale, allowing gamers to broadcast to fairly vast audience during competitions. While Stre.am’s announcement today is focused on competitive gamers and eSports, they have also brought compelling functionality to other areas where livestreaming is becoming popular, having added the capability to stream video from GoPro cameras through an Android device as of December of last year, something which they point out that Periscope has yet to add support for. Android device have also been supported by Stre.am since July of 2014. Today’s announcement on eSports integration for mobile gamers on Android simply furthers the all-around capability that Stre.am is setting out to offer those on smartphones and tablets. If you have yet to check out the Stre.am app, you can pick it from the Play Store.
