Most of the apps on your iPhone will attempt to send you one type of notification or another. Some of these notifications are helpful and wanted, while others can be a bit on the annoying side. The Twitch app on your iPhone is capable of sending notifications for a variety of events that occur in the app, such as a streamer that you follow who has just gone live.
One of the notifications that can occur in this situation involves a sound to alert you to the notification. This audio notification can be a little jarring and, depending on the number of people that you follow, could become somewhat excessive. Fortunately you can disable that sound by changing a setting on the Twitch notifications menu.
