Associated Press has reported that the much awaited Twitch TV Xbox One game streaming app is coming to the console on March 11th.
An update next month alongside Titanfall launch will enable users the ability to stream straight to Twitch without the use of an external capture card.
“It’s complete integration,” said Emmett Shear, co-founder and CEO of Twitch. “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.”
Features that will be included in the updated Twitch TV app for Xbox One:
• Instantly live broadcast your games by simply speaking “Xbox, Broadcast”, or launch from within the Twitch app for Xbox One.
• Position the webcam PIP in any corner of the screen to best fit your game.
• Interact with broadcasters using the most lines of chat available on a console.
• Your Xbox friends are notified when you go live.
Viewing and Chatting
