After a delay, from March 11th Xbox One users will finally be able to stream their gameplay to Twitch, as its App will get an update bringing new features to the One.
Up to now, all users could do was spectate other people’s streams on Twitch and use the Xbox One Upload to record and share gameplay clips. This update is yet another one to tie in with the release of Titanfall on March 14th, theFPS giant that Microsoft is pretty much using to relaunch the Xbox One console. The update will also include chat features and the ability for users to broadcast as they stream with Xbox One’s Kinect.
Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft Vice President, said of the news:
“This will open up the social aspect of Xbox One in a new way, the community of Twitch is huge, and this allows us to type into that, and frankly do something that’s never been done before on consoles. You’ll be able to broadcast to any device and consume anyone’s broadcast from any device. It’s a console experience unique to the Xbox One.”
