Microsoft's long-awaited Twitch.tv broadcasting support has finally been made available
on the new Xbox One console after a small update this morning. The new app will allow users to start broadcasting their game with the simple "Xbox, Broadcast" voice command, and even allow viewers to jump in and play with them.
"It's complete integration," Twitch CEO Emmett Shear told the AP. "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."
"That's a very certain type of experience," said Xbox chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Medhi of Twitch on PS4. "For us, we thought that was too limiting for what our fans would want. Our fans really want the full next-gen service, so that's why we decided to take our time, do it right and have it come out in this fashion."
A small update will be required by your console to get the ball running, but once updated simply hit up the Twitch app to start broadcasting your favourite games. This comes alongside the March update ahead of Titanfall's release - which you can check out our review of here
- which aims at further improving the party functions and controller layout. Find out more on that here
