Twitch CEO Emmett Shear has announced that game broadcasting will finally be available for Xbox One on March 11.

“It’s complete integration. It’s exciting because we’ve never had the ability to broadcast from a console like this with such a deep level of integration,” Shear told the Associated Press. “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.”

Sony currently offers integrated Twitch streaming on PlayStation 4, but it doesn’t allow you to enter a broadcaster’s party. “For us, we thought that was too limiting for what our fans would want,” Xbox vice president of marketing and strategy Yusuf Mehdi said of the feature. “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.

“This will open up the social aspect of Xbox One in a new way,” he added. “The community of Twitch is huge, and this allows us to type into that, and frankly do something that’s never been done before on consoles. You’ll be able to broadcast to any device and consume anyone’s broadcast from any device. It’s a console experience unique to the Xbox One.”
