Today, Twitch has two exciting updates to share with fans; Twitch iOS updates and the introduction of a dedicated Twitch app that will now be made available on Nintendo Switch.
Twitch updates pricing and benefits for viewers on the Twitch iOS app
In 2019, Twitch made it possible to subscribe to your favourite streamers from iOS devices for fans with the Twitch app. Starting today, Twitch has made it possible for viewers on iOS to purchase reoccurring subscriptions by updating their update to the most recent version, making it possible for viewers to enjoy subscriber benefits and freely support their favourite creators.
In addition to this, Twitch has amended the recurring subscription pricing from AUD$9.99 to AUD$8.99 which will take effect when the Twitch app is updated to iOS 11.9 or above.
For Twitch iOS users in New Zealand, there will be no changes to the pricing however they will still see the same benefits and changes changes kick in, such as the new recurring subscription flow and the phasing out and eventual refund of sub tokens.
