On March 10, Twitch unveiled their first app for the Xbox One, the next day over 30 percent of Twitch was nothing but streams from the console.
Less than a month later calling the release a success would be a gross understatement. An entire directory has been dedicated solely to the console.
“Microsoft has a put a lot of time and effort into ensuring their Twitch integration would be a robust experience, and based on the amount of Xbox One owners streaming from their living rooms,” says company COO, Kevin Lin. “The move paid off. It’s fun to see the way the Twitch community has embraced Xbox One.”
Since it’s release Xbox One users have broadcasted over a million minutes of Titanfall alone on the online network, making it the most played game on Twitch.
According to Lin “the rate of adoption for our console integrations has elevated our role in the entertainment industry.”
“People go to Hulu to watch TV, Netflix to watch movies, and now they go to Twitch to watch and broadcast video games. We are really fortunate for such a passionate and progressive community who has made this all possible.”
