Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use these apps to stream non-game content?

You can live stream your camera’s feed to supported streaming platforms using all six apps on this list.

Will my notifications show up in live broadcasts?

Since the iPhone’s Screen Recording feature shows everything going on on your screen, your notifications are visible to your viewers. The best way around this is to turn on “Do Not Disturb” from the control center.

Do all mobile games support live streaming with these apps?

Yes. Some games, such as Call of Duty: Mobile, have a native live stream feature. That said, these live streaming apps for iOS only act as your gateway to connect to live streaming platforms. Simply put, they’re only capturing whatever is on your screen and delivering it to Twitch, Facebook, and the like.
