The new Twitch app for PS4 is shown up top and it's pretty good, and a really nice update to an app that has been long overdue for one. The same stretches to the Xbox One, but while there's no new app today, the Xbox hasn't been left out.
As confirmed by Twitch's Senior Director of Product, Tom Robertson, there is a new app for the Xbox in the works.

Coming soon is something you get used to hearing in these parts, but hopefully Microsoft's console isn't too far behind. The current Twitch app hasn't really been updated in forever and even though Microsoft is pushing Mixer hard through its console, the biggest streamers are still on Twitch. So it's an important app to have.
Now we play the waiting game...

Will we still have the broadcast feature or will that be fully eliminated with the new app
Would love if it was a UWP application that also came to desktop (and mobile in some form although I know that's wishful thinking) so I wouldn't have to use the website (or 3rd party apps) anymore.
Sorely needed. The app on the Xbox is pretty slow. And yep, would love an app that can be downloaded in any Windows device. For some reason I don't think it will happen.
That's great news, it's been the same app since the original XB1 launched.
