Xbox One’s Twitch app broadcast update is now live, giving users the ability to stream their gameplay to the world.

The app is only available to Xbox Live Gold members and can be activated by simply saying “Xbox Broadcast.” Last week, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb released a video explaining how streaming via Xbox One worked, you can check it out here.

“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,” Twitch CEO Emmett Shear said previously. “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.

“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.”

You can take a look at all the currently live Xbox One Twitch channels here.
