Twitch Mobile app capabilities

I was wondering what happens to the mobile Twitch App when a link is clicked and punt in the background while the phone loads another app or a browser link.

  • Is there any documentation available for this?
  • What happens to the viewer’s panel? Is the app still connecting to the Twitch server or the mobile extensions to the EBS?
  • Is there a simple way to measure this?
  • How does the Twitch App handle it?

Thanks a lot.
