TWITCH is shutting down its desktop app this month.
The streaming service is presenting this as a positive move but viewers aren’t so pleased.
Fans of Twitch streamer Amouranth will no longer be able to use the desktop app to watch her content
Twitch’s desktop app will be shutdown on April 30 this year.
It said this decision has been based “on usage and community feedback”.
Users should have been notified about the changes in an email.
Twitch said: “This move allows us to invest more heavily in enhancing and adding new ways to engage with the creators and communities you care about.

“If you’re used to using the Twitch Desktop App, we recommend bookmarking Twitch.tv in your browser of choice for easy access.”
The move means streamers will have to find other ways to watch fan favorites like Amouranth.
Twitch said it didn’t take the decision likely.
The desktop app has been available for Mac and Windows users since 2017.
Fans have had mixed reactions online.
Some joked that no one uses the Twitch desktop app but others were very disappointed.
One user tweeted: “Twitch killing its desktop app is quite frankly, garbage. Thanks for nothing, Twitch.”

Another said: “Twitch getting rid of the desktop app is wild and also really unhelpful.”
Twitch has released a guide on how you can uninstall the app.
