Samsung has a new app for its Android smartphones called Game Live, which lets users live stream games to Twitch, Facebook, or YouTube, as spotted via Android Police.

The app itself looks like it does exactly what it says on the label: users can launch a game, log into their streaming service of choice, and start streaming. Game Live allows streams up to 4GB in size, which Samsung says should get you "around 200 minutes at high quality,” with longer times available with lower resolutions.

Users will be able to stream with either game audio, a microphone input for commentary, or both. You’ll also have the option to save the stream locally to your device when it’s finished.

The app is available now through the Samsung’s Galaxy Apps store. It should work on recent Samsung Galaxy devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or up. However, it doesn’t seem that the app runs on non-Samsung hardware.
