Update Brings New Features to Xbox Twitch App

Rolling out today is an update to the Xbox One’s Twitch application that will bring a bevy of new features to gamers looking to either produce or watch streams of their favorite video games. The update particularly brings real-time statistics to each broadcast, statistics that display during the stream to give players a more in-depth experience complete with more search features than ever before. According to the original post found on Microsoft’s Xbox Wire blog the breadth of options that await in the newest version of the app are filters that “may include player stats, game modes, maps, player skill level, in-game activity, progress, and more.”


This upgrade will also have Video On Demand (VOD) options that will allow gamers to view highlights and old broadcasts from their favorite channels even when the broadcaster is offline. Profiles will also receive a small update that will alter their contents to sync with whatever content the streamer may broadcast at the time.

“Xbox One helped cement Twitch’s place in the living room with its robust set of features,” said Annie Berrones, Director of Product Marketing, Twitch. “With this impressive set of updates, including the ability to now follow the games you want, view archived videos and have access to more advanced directories, video game streaming and spectating as part of the home entertainment experience is only going to get stronger.”

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
