Twitch, the video streaming service, made its grand debut on Microsoft’s Xbox One console last month after many delays. From the sounds of things, Twitch is working very well on the platform and posting some solid numbers.
Microsoft says that users have streamed and broadcast more than 23 million minutes worth of content. The app’s launch on March 11 saw 2.7 million minutes of streaming, which makes the Xbox One app the biggest Twitch launch in history. As you can guess, Titanfall had a lot to do with those numbers.
“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, the move paid off,” said Kevin Lin, COO, Twitch. “This high 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’re really fortunate for such a passionate and progressive community who made this all possible.”
You can download the Twitch app for free from the Xbox Live Marketplace.
