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.”
