Twitch coming to Xbox One in 2014

twitchXboxoneThe Twitch.tv streaming app will not be available for the Xbox One at launch, Microsoft has confirmed.

We know the ability to instantly broadcast gameplay is something the gaming community is excited about, and we are too. We are working to ensure the initial Twitch on Xbox One broadcasting experience meets the expectations of the Twitch community, so while this feature won’t be available right away, we’ll let you know as soon as it is ready. Our goal is to deliver it during the first part of 2014.

In addition to announcing the delay, Microsoft also detailed the 10 media achievements that will available to gamers who use the Twitch application when it launches. The list includes achievements for everything from watching over 100 hours of live video to watching 10 hours of live video on Twitch channels that have less than 10 viewers. Full list of Twitch achievements can be found here.


The Xbox One launches this Friday, November 22.
