Twitch on Xbox One app just received a major update with advanced broadcast filtering features that should help users find exactly what they want to watch. My favorite feature of this update is the more personalized home screen experience in which I can follow specific games or specific channels. Also, this app now uses Xbox Live’s new ability to associate real-time gameplay stats with broadcasts, which enables a massive array of search options. Depending on the game, the filters may include player stats, game modes, maps, player skill level, in-game activity, progress, and more.
Want to search for the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare broadcaster with the highest kill/death ratio? How about instantly queuing up a Halo match from whoever has the highest rank in Slayer mode, or finding Forza Horizon 2 players who are driving a specific class of car? This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Twitch on Xbox One app’s broad array of new search options, which unleashes a whole new level of innovation and community-building potential. This new Twitch experience also helps up-and-coming broadcasters find audiences. After all, if you’re one of the best players of a game, yet you’re brand new to Twitch, you could quickly attract attention as viewers filter by skill.
Another exclusive feature on Xbox One is the Twitch videos on demand. You’ll begin to see highlights and past broadcasts available to watch at any time, even when the broadcaster is offline.
