Microsoft has released a new video that offers a look at the upcoming Xbox One Twitch app update, scheduled for March 11.
Simply saying “Xbox Broadcast” is all you need to begin your magical adventure into the world of streaming. The video takes a look at customizing your Twitch profile, changing your online status, how to set up picture-in-picture with Kinect, and more.
“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 when the release date was announced. “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.”
Yesterday, Twitch announced that it had signed a three-year deal to be the official streaming partner of E3, starting with this year’s event in LA.
