Twitch 4.4 Hits Google Play, Brings Push Notifications For Broadcasters You Follow

Man, this Twitch thing - I still find it intriguing that people like to watch other people play video games instead of actually playing themselves. I mean, there's nothing wrong with it (I'm actually guilty of getting caught up in watching other people's games when I open the app, too), it's just something I never thought would be a thing, you know?

Anyway, that's not the point. This is about Twitch 4.4, which brings a couple of new features to the app. First and foremost, it brings push notifications for broadcasters that you're already following, so you'll know when something's going down.

Play Games Service Preparing To Add New Event Tracking Reports, Player Stats API, And Repeating Quests

Building a good, profitable game these days is more challenging than ever. Players are more demanding, business models require more creativity (at least they should), and there are plenty of competitors that are just as desperate to hold the attention of players for as long as possible.

Google Play Games is trying to help with that by launching some very informative tools that can help make player behavior a little easier to understand.
