Game Live is a New Samsung Application to Live Stream to Twitch, YouTube and Facebook
Live streaming games is so popular right now that Amazon acquired Twitch, and is continuing to grow its platform with new features for its users. Not only is it bringing more people into Amazon’s ecosystem with services like Twitch Prime, but it has also enabled live streamers to make a living doing nothing more than entertaining their community while playing some fun games. This has generally been with PC and console games, but there are some who stream mobile games as well.
Samsung wants to make it easier for its customers to live stream their mobile gaming experience to platforms such as Twitch, YouTube and Facebook. We’ve seen games such a Five Nights at Freddy’s, Rocket League and more become successful thanks to the live streaming community. Samsung’s new Game Live application could help some mobile games become the next breakout title within the mobile and gaming communities.
We’ve seen similar applications to Game Live come out before. Google Play Games has a feature that lets you stream your gaming session to YouTube Live. Samsung’s own Game Recorder application as well as its Game Launcher application can record your mobile gaming session so that you can upload it to a video platform later. But none of them so far have integrated YouTube, Twitch and Facebook into a single application and few make it this easy to get started.
The user is able to pick out their game from a list that Game Live detects (which is similar to Game Launcher), and then you can select which platform you want to live stream to. Digging into the settings will enable you to configure a video resolution for the live stream, whether or not you want to stream the game audio, microphone audio, or both, and if you want to save the video to the device as well. Current streaming sessions are limited to 4GB in size which is said to be around 200 minutes when using the High Quality video resolution setting.
Game Live isn’t available in the Play Store right now, but you can grab it from SamMobile‘s APK Archive right here.
