I think the coolest feature is the ability to go from watching a stream to jumping into the broadcaster's game.
- The Xbox One version was developed directly by Twitch itself, according to an AP report.
- Xbox One users will reportedly be able to jump directly into playing games with the person supplying their video feed, and launch a stream by saying "Xbox, Broadcast" through the Kinect microphone.
- Twitch on Xbox One will also allow users to view streams coming from any device...
- The Xbox One app also allows Twitch users to archive their streams for later viewing, and allow for ten full lines of Twitch chat to be seen on a sidebar next to the video.
How to Prepare for Twitch Broadcasting
From your computer:
Go online to www.twitch.tv and sign up for a Twitch account.
In Settings, go to Channel & Videos and select Archive Broadcasts.
On your console:
Sign into your Xbox One console and download the Twitch app.
You can customize your picture-in-picture to broadcast both your gameplay and yourself through Kinect.
In your Profile, make sure your presence is set to “online”
In the Settings app under “Privacy and Online Safety,” make sure the option to “See if you’re online” is set to “Everyone” and “Broadcast gameplay” is set to “Allow.”
Also in the Settings app under“ Privacy and Online Safety,” make sure the option to “Share content made using Kinect” is set to “Allow.”
In the Settings app under “Preference,” check “Allow broadcasts and Game DVR Uploads”
In the Settings app under “Kinect,” check “Kinect on” and to include Kinect audio in your broadcast check “Use Kinect microphone for chat.”
Actually, it will be out later today.

That's cool if it tells you when a friend is broadcasting.
Hows everyone finding the lag/latency?
I would imagine playing an online game like Titanfall while streaming on Twitch a complete nightmare!
i have 30mb down, 2mb up, i don't think i stand a chance of gaming and live uploading.
Mine looks like it's a pixelated mess along with a lot of skipping. I have around 10Mbps upload.
Thanks. This is someone else I can add to my follow list.
Although what is the deal with subscribing? I'm not paying $5 for a Twitch streaming channel.
you can totally set how much bandwidth you want to allocate to the stream. as the streamer, you can't tell a difference (at least I couldn't). my friend said even when i set at 800 kbps, it looked pretty good.
It's to support the streamer. ( Mainly )
Some do giveaways. Some do sub only mods to talk. Or ways to play with them etc.. There's a lot to it.
Anyone else experiencing this?
I was messing with this just a little last night again, and I have to say that it's too bad that so few people will actually use broadcasting. The way the feature works is probably the best argument so far for the Xbox One's OS architecture and they need to build more experiences like this.
I think it's great people don't use it like they could. A flooded sight full of broadcast? This ain't YouTube son!
I created an account on twitch.tv yesterday and last night I installed the Twitch app to my Xbox One. I ran the app, got my activation code, entered the code from my Mac and everything looked good. I started running Titanfall, said "xbox broadcast", it said it was going to broadcast Titanfall and even gave me a preview of the game. I hit "Start Broadcast", it ran the network test, came back and now the game was listed as "Unknown" and weird things happened on my Xbox One. I couldn't run any other apps (TV, My Apps, etc.) and had to reboot the Xbox (and even that required a hard reset).
I tried it again after the Xbox One rebooted and the exact same thing happened.
Anyone have any ideas?
I'm going to run the Settings App and check the settings under “Privacy and Online Safety” and “Preference” since I didn't touch those yesterday but it still seems like weird behavior from the Twitch app even if those settings aren't right.
I agree, but at the same time meant more that I wish that there was some sort of more-universal experience that demonstrated the One's OS prowess like this does.
