Almost six months ago, Twitch has introduced Twitch Extensions and now these extensions have seen over 1.5 billion interactions on the desktop computer.
Apparently, the company extended these extensions to mobile for allowing its users to enjoy the leaderboard, polls, match histories and much more, whatever users want to stream online.
Of course, the company needs some time to makes all these extensions mobile ready and mobile friendly and it depends on developers whether they are comfortable to make their mobile compatible.
But, most of the extensions are really good to go include all in one Streamlabs Loyalty, Music, Polls, and Games, plus Schedule and World of Warcraft Armory. One thing you need to make sure is that your Twitch app should be at 6.0 or higher to take advantage of the update.
Obviously, by expanding these extensions on wider platforms will create new opportunities for the developers, therefore, Twitch is also ready to introduce its developer rig, which is designed to help developers build and test their Extensions.
Developer rig is a web app that allows developers to test any of extension on production APIs over various roles and views. Developers will then have the ability to demolish the latest “Hello World” to repeat on the extensions along with the addition of new views as well as customs resolutions.
The company just released the starter pack of its extensions and it has plans to add and improve rig in the coming months.
The company has been taking the collective plan to new features as the company has been trying to get important feedback on code samples and improvements as well.
Twitch has also requested developers to keep track of its RFCs so that they can take part in the second wave of rig’s functionality.
