At present, Twitch is the leading video game streaming platform. It allows gamers for building up a fan base to watch and support them online in real-time during games. The platform was acquired by Amazon in the year 2014 and since that time, it has provided more content and satisfaction to its users.
Amazon has recently launched a new gaming platform for Android users known as GameOn. Twitch recently introduced the Watch Parties that allowed gamers and their audience to watch Amazon Prime movies together live. Since the world was fighting with Covid-19 pandemic and total lockdowns were imposed in most countries, the feature was an opportunistic thing for the company. The introduction of the party feature globally sparkled the feelings of moviegoers.
Amazon GameOn allows Android gamers for sharing their gaming moments with GameOn community in the form of short video clips. Because the service is still new, there is no love streaming of games, unlike Twitch. The GameOn app is available at Google Play Store for Android users and Amazon app store for Amazon tablet users. It also allows the users to record gameplay videos just like the screen recorder.
Also, the user can record the reactions to the game being played by simply using the front camera of the phone. The duration for record clips is about 30 seconds and 5 minutes. The app allows simple video editing and lets users to share their recordings with the community. It provides weekly challenges in the GameOn app and lots of free mobile games on the Android operating system are well interfaced with.
As the demand for digital games expands, the launch of a gaming platform for Android is a good investment. If Amazon manages to turn the new services into a Twitch for Android, it can add more profits for the company.
