Sneak Peek at the Upcoming Twitch Update Coming to the One

March 7, 2014

The Twitch “Broadcasting” feature is going live on the 11th (which most of us have known already), but we weren’t entirely sure everything that would entail. Major Nelson shows us a quick demonstration as to how the Twitch functionality is going to work on the One. Personally, my favorite thing is that you don’t need Twitch to be snapped to continue your broadcast. Add the fact that you can Archive your broadcasts to your profile and save the footage for future views makes it a fully functional streaming app.

There’s also some other awesome little tidbits that the app has to offer. Check out the video for a full run-through.

Can’t wait to start watching our domination in Titanfall from multiple perspectives!

    Very excited to use this. Hadn’t cared much about streaming before using Twitch to watch Jeff Green’s Dark Soul’s streams..

    PS: Did you guys see the DX12 API is coming to Xbox One? For reference, Xbox 360 only had DX9. DX10 was released shortly after Xbox 360 and powered games like Crysis.

    This API could be a significant advantage for Microsoft.. especially over the next 5+ years.

    Grymmie, thanks for the link.

    VERY excited about Twitch potential, and also that MS has better implementation than the “other guy”.

    Zos, thanks for the heads-up on the DirectX tech. I didn’t know MS would be bringing it to the One. That is great news, indeed! And congrats on your new digs!

    Gabe over at Penny Arcade wrote his initial impressions of the Twitch app and capabilities, and seemed to enjoy it much more than streaming from the PS4. Looking forward to getting my hands on it myself. That is, if my shitty connection will allow me to stream higher than 240p.

    I’m nervous for my internet bill and usage with this, I will always wanna watch or stream.

    Hopefully someone does a quick article on how much bandwidth it takes..

    Very excited for this! This is the kind of stuff that we wished for last gen & now it’s a reality!

    Yes, with archiving and voice chat capture, picture in picture, it is almost too good to be true. And dudes, let’s just make a deal here and now, No Captain Morgan-ing while you stream your Titanfall.

    And, as if there weren’t enough hype building in our band of brothers, dodge this!

      Grymmie, in this particular instance, you are allowed to write your comment as follows:

      “Twitch streaming is now up and running, bitches!”

      LMAO!

      Of course, I registered last night “3Suns”. Though, you won’t be getting any streaming from me until I MS decides they want to sell their machine in a few more countries! lol

      Anyone gonna be tryin’ it out in a big mech tonight? I know that 2GN is going to be all over that ish like milk on Captain Crunch!

    Service Announcement:

    I (like many others on the net) had lots of trouble yesterday with the twitch app. It commonly causes the following problems (loss of video input, all apps will no longer open, lock-ups/freezing). To fix this you have to hard power down and re-turn on the console.

    Ironic, that the “always on” console, requires I manually unplug it several times a day -_-.

    That being said, once it’s working the service is incredibly impressive. And watching footage, it appears much higher quality than I expected.
