Navigating the Glimesh Alpha Mobile App

The mobile app is finally here, and we couldn’t be more excited! We’ve put together a guide to help you get around. For the best experience with the Glimesh Alpha Mobile App, please log in or register via your browser.

Click here to learn more about downloading and logging into the new mobile app. Logging in gives you full use of the chat features, as well as access to your profile and favorite streams!

Opening the App:

After logging in, you will always open the app to the “Browse” tab, where you can see the six streaming categories. Here, you can immediately tap any category to start exploring! You can also swipe up and check out our many featured streamers, who are rotating through the Glimesh homepage each hour.


You can find the Profile, Browse, and Following tabs at the bottom of your screen. Your current tab will be highlighted in blue.


Log In and Settings:

There is a triple dash icon in the top left corner. When tapped, this opens a menu from the left that is used to Login or Sign Out of the mobile app. From here, you also have access to the Settings menu to enhance your personal experience. Settings include a light and dark mode, personal language preference, and a toggle switch to bypass the Mature Content warnings.

Note: Some features do require you to be logged in.


Tap anywhere outside of the menu when you’re ready to tuck it away.

Personalized Tabs:

Let’s explore the other tabs! In addition to the Browse tab, there are two tabs which will be unique to you; your Profile tab, and the Following tab. These become available to you after you've logged in.

The Profile tab allows you to view your Glimesh profile in mobile form! You can also access any social media that you have included in your profile via their respective icons under your picture. At this time, you are able to edit your profile via browser only.


Tapping the Following tab will show you live streams from your very own list of Followed/Subscribed streamers.


Viewing Profiles and Interacting with Streams:

When you look at any stream thumbnail, you’re able to see a recent still frame of their stream with their chosen tags along the top, as well as the streamer’s profile picture and stream title along the bottom.

To view the stream, tap anywhere on the video. To view the streamer’s profile, you can tap on their profile picture!


Some streams may be flagged for Mature Content, and will ask if you wish to continue. You can turn this filter on or off in your Settings.


Chat and Follow:

Once you’ve opened a stream, you can view it in portrait mode to include and participate in the chat, or you can turn your mobile device landscape to enjoy the stream in its entirety. Love the stream? Go ahead and drop them a follow using the blue Follow button!


Note: You must be logged in to use the chat feature, or follow a stream. If you’re not logged in, the chat will always prompt you.

More Details:

You can take a better look at your selected stream's details by tapping on the title of the stream during your view! Tap the title again to hide the details.


To go back and browse other streams, tap the small white arrow in the top left corner of the current live stream. You also have the option to swipe to the right from the leftmost part of your screen to return to a previous page.
