The feature will be patched in to Microsoft’s console for the North American release of Titanfall. Twitch adds the ability to live stream games, join games with broadcasters, use voice commands to create your own game broadcasts, archive game clips, and later watch those clips on any device.
Additionally, the app will offer exclusive content on Xbox One, allowing users to broadcast a full-screen view of the game they’re playing or alternatively use an on-screen viewer indicator to keep an eye on how popular their live stream is. Media Achievements can also be earned by spectating games, while notifications can be set up ahead of time to notify users of an upcoming livestream. The Twitch app will also feature streaming text chat and the option to create private parties using voice chat outside of the broadcast.
“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.”
