Great news today as it has been confirmed that Twitch will be coming to the Xbox One next month on March 11th.
The Twitch service can be activated by simply saying “Xbox, Broadcast”. Once you’re done broadcasting, you can use Twitch to watch the games you love, chat with the players you follow, or even join a broadcaster’s game. Xbox One is the only next-gen console that allows you to archive your Twitch broadcasts and view live Twitch streams regardless of their original source.
Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate VP of Marketing, Xbox stated:
Only Xbox One offers the most complete Twitch experience, with access to any live broadcast and the full Twitch catalogue, We’ve designed Xbox One to be the best place to play with features and unparalleled partnerships that deliver epic moments for gamers.
Emmett Shear, CEO and Founder, Twitch added:
Over the last two years, we have seen the broadcasting and spectating of video games go from a niche activity to a pastime shared by millions, As the experience grows in popularity, it’s important to provide as broad a feature set as possible for the community. Microsoft has done just that by rolling out the most robust console integration of Twitch to date and setting a new bar for others to strive for.
