Microsoft has already seen some mild success with its Xbox One console since the next-gen system launched late last year. The popular streaming service Twitch recently released an app for the system, announcing official support just in time for the launch of Titanfall. Turns out, many of you enjoy streaming your gaming time with others.
According to a post over on Xbox Wire, players are enjoying an average of 5 hours per day exploring apps, playing games or watching some TV. Nearly 23 million minutes have been broadcast from Twitch on the Xbox One since March 11th. The service has seen a sudden spike in use with an additional 30 percent of all unique broadcasting from Xbox One during the launch day of the app.
"We have always considered enabling live streaming directly from consoles to be a key step in unlocking the ability for all gamers to share their experiences," commented Emmett Shear, Founder and CEO of Twitch. "Yet we never imagined the popularity would spread as fast as it has. Microsoft has really helped drive this expansion, and the great system architecture of Xbox One has allowed us to build a really great broadcasting experience with a robust feature set. We’re all very excited about working with Microsoft to continue rolling out new features on the platform."
