Xbox Delays Twitch TV Streaming and Music From USB Sticks At Launch

The Xbox One is here and as with its competitor, the PS4, there are some features that won’t be available until next year. Just before launch, Microsoft explained the Twitch TV application on the Xbox One and how live streaming won’t be available until 2014. Unlike the Playstation 4, which has Twitch TV live streaming at launch, the Xbox One application will allow you to watch others stream and play from other consoles. Alternatively, the Xbox One does allow you to save game clips, edit, record voice overs, and then upload to YouTube at Day One which is a delayed feature on the Playstation 4.

Microsoft has also detailed the voice commands that work with the Twitch application which allow you to ‘snap’ to the application. This allows you to view Twitch TV while you play your own game on a smaller adjacent screen. By saying ‘Xbox, snap to Twitch’ or ‘Xbox, go to Twitch’, can automatically go to the application in the snap screen or in fullscreen. Also detailed were Achievements within the Twitch TV application. Two that were described were the ‘Night Owl Achievement’ which is gained by staying up all night watching Twitch TV and the ‘Standing Room Only Achievement’ which is gained by joining over 100,000 other viewers watching a specific channel.

Another delayed feature is the ability to play music from USB sticks. Director of product planning Albert Penello confirmed on Twitter that the feature won’t be available at launch but should be available next year. The Xbox One will be DLNA compatible and plays music CDs while the Playstation 4 won’t at launch. Also, Xbox has a music service that allows for streaming via the Xbox One through supported Windows devices which is called the Play To service. Of course, this service is only available if you pay for the subscription service.
