Twitch.tv app for Android gets major update, now allows users log in, still no chat or search

Twitch updates app to allow users to login to their accounts, search and chat still MIA

This morning, Twitch.tv is pushing out an update to their Android app that will finally allow users to log into their accounts which will give them much easier access to their personal favorite streams. Unfortunately, the list is still limited to the top 300 live streaming channels.

A search feature and a chat function are both still missing from the app, but community manager Jared Rea has mentioned that chat and search features for the app are in the works and will be released at some point in the future. While that sounds promising, you need to keep in mind that until three months ago, the app went an entire year without an update. However, the recent launch of the OUYA is being seen as "another incentive" to push development forward on the app.
