Twitch streaming to be integrated with Xbox One
Twitch, the video streaming service and community will be coming to Xbox One. The service will allow Xbox Live Gold members to stream games using the hardware integrated the console. The Twitch community, a sub-community to Justin.Tv, currently broadcasts gaming events and tournaments across multiple platforms.“Live broadcasting has continued to grow in popularity, but sharing your console experience has never been this easy,” said Twitch CEO Emmett Shear in a press release. “Xbox Live Gold is enabling the ability to both upload your gameplay directly to Twitch and to stream Twitch content on Xbox One. The impact of this level of console integration will be a true game changer.”
It is expected, but not confirmed, that Twitch will be integrated in to many, if not all of the Xbox One games.
