How to Stream Mobile Games on iOS

Dreaming of streaming your favorite mobile games? Here's how you do it with the Streamlabs for iOS.

Last Updated on November 22, 2022

Over the last year and a half, mobile gaming has skyrocketed in popularity. Cheaper data plans, more processing power, and an increase in the roster of top-notch games have all contributed to the boom. Titles like PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile, Pokemon Go, Clash Royale, and Garena Free Fire continue to dominate the charts with their engaging game modes. 

Whether you’re already a mobile streamer or looking to try it out, this article will explain how to stream your games on iOS using the Streamlabs Mobile app

What to Play

If you’re looking to stream games on mobile, chances are you already have a game in mind. Whatever you decide, it’s important to remember that just because a game is fun to play doesn’t mean it’s necessarily fun to watch.

Battle royale and strategy games continue to perform well on Twitch. For some ideas, check out this list of the best games to stream on mobile

Getting Started

Like Streamlabs Desktop for your computer, you first need to install your broadcasting software. On your phone, that means downloading the Streamlabs Mobile app for iOS (it’s also available on Android, FYI). Once downloaded, log into the app with your platform of choice.

FYI, streaming your screen and camera simultaneously is not supported on iOS. Also, adding Streamlabs widgets like the Alert Box, Event List, and Chat Box is currently only supported on Android devices. To start your screen capture, head to the menu (the double bar icon to the top left of your screen), then select Screen Capture.

Going live

Once you’ve selected Screen Capture, you’ll see a popup that looks like this. 

As you can see, you also have the option to multi-stream your screen capture/mobile gameplay. For more information on multistreaming, one of the most effective ways to grow your channel, by streaming to multiple destinations simultaneously, check out this overview. 

You can either go live to the destination you logged in with or connect a different account or Custom RTMP destination. Next, give your stream a snappy title and description and click Go Live. Once live, keep the app running, open up whatever game you selected, and stream away.

You’ve done it! It really is that easy to stream your mobile games on iOS. If you’d like more information on how to set up your Twitch channel, check out this article on getting started streaming to Twitch on mobile.
