One of the biggest features to launch with the PS4 was accessibility with Twitch streaming, something that didn’t come with the Xbox One when it launched, but that is now about the change, launching on the new console from March 11th 2014.
This new implementation will allow users of the Xbox One to stream live broadcast directly via their console, instead of the current simple recording.
The application will also support voice commands and archiving of broadcasts, as well as allowing users to broadcast themselves via the Kinect camera.
Emmett Shear, co-founder and CEO of Twitch explained a little more about the immanent integration with the Xbox One console : “It’s complete integration,”-”It’s exciting because we’ve never had the ability to broadcast from a console like this with such a deep level of integration. The concept of being able to join a broadcasters’ party is really cool, and it’s another step in the direction of interacting more closely with broadcasters.”
This implementation comes just in time for the Titanfall launch next month, which saw a lot of new streams from broadcasters during its beta, and is sure to be a popular game to stream when it is finally launched on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
