Twitch," a live streaming community service provided by Amazon.com, Inc.
Twitch is a live streaming community service that provides a variety of content, including live gaming, esports tournaments, and other gaming-related events, as well as sports, music, and other forms of entertainment.

Twitch has a growing community of users, from story makers to viewers, from all over the world every day, and official applications for a variety of platforms, including desktop, mobile, and TV, are available.
The main platforms include Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Fire TV, Xbox, AppleTV, and PlayStation (broadcast function).
The fairly broad range of products is too generous for the viewing public, but we would like to see one more....
Specifically, if we could see the distribution of games on that game console that can be used as both a portable and stationary device, which is now almost out of stock and almost everyone who enjoys playing games has one...!

Perhaps this wish has been answered, as "Twitch" is now available on the Nintendo Switch!

And with the addition of Bluetooth functionality, wireless earphones are now available for even greater convenience! I would like to enjoy powerful game play on a large screen.

Expect future updates to the distribution function?

According to the official announcement, the Nintendo Switch version of "Twitch" distributed this time is limited to viewing.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to stream games played on the Switch as they are, so you will need to prepare a PC and capture board to stream Switch games.
There are a number of popular Switch-only titles out there, and while we may have a long way to go, it would be nice to be able to stream directly to the Switch...!
Stay tuned for more updates and news!
