A preview of the Twitch app


As you may have heard earlier today, Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One will get Twitch gameplay streaming on March 11, just in time for Titanfall. We have more details on how this highly anticipated addition will work.

First, the Xbox One's Kinect will play a role in streaming on Twitch. By calling out "Xbox, Broadcast," the system will immediately begin streaming, and calling out "Stop Broadcast" will end it.  Kinect will also allow picture-in-picture video feeds and audio commentary through its microphones and cameras.

Streaming works from any source, even the PS4, so you're able to enjoy content from anything that connects to Twitch. You'll also be able to archive gameplay and access any archived Twitch content from the console.

Outside of streaming, you'll be able to chat with other streamers and even join in on their games. Chat streams are fully available, a full 10 lines are displayed, and commenting even supports emotes and badges. You can even join broadcaster parties. 

Finally, you'll be able to check in on friends' broadcast status in the Xbox One friends app. Notifications are available to let you know when a favorite stream starts.

Below, you'll find a peek at what Twitch will look like on Xbox One.

This is what the Twitch app will look like. Notice the content from other platforms.
