Twitch's mobile gameplay broadcasting has officially begun

The first mobile game capable broadcasting live gameplay via Twitch is Asphalt 8: Airborne for iOS.
Newsbrief: Live video operator Twitch said today that Gameloft's Asphalt 8: Airborne for iOS will be capable of broadcasting live gameplay and voice via the new Twitch functionality, a first for a mobile game. The announcement comes shortly after Twitch revealed its new mobile SDK. Twitch has been pioneering live broadcast in video games, with its service reaching across PC and consoles, and now mobile. Twitch on mobile allows streaming of live gameplay as well as voice, and uses the front-facing camera so viewers can see the players. The functionality also allows for chat and the archiving of streams.
