Xbox One Twitch streaming still 'a few more months' away

The Xbox One's Twitch-based streaming capabilities, also known as Direct Broadcasting, will likely take "a few more months," according to a tweet from Twitch's official account.

Twitch integration was announced at Microsoft's press conference during E3 2013. The service will be exclusive to Xbox Live Gold subscribers and will allow users to upload gameplay directly to Twitch, broadcast and watch other streams.

Just before the console's release, Microsoft announced that its goal was to deliver Twitch streaming during "the first part of 2014."

A Microsoft representative responded to Polygon with the following statement:

"We understand that the broadcasting component of Twitch is very important, and it is a major focus on our roadmap as we work to ensure it is seamlessly implemented into our Xbox One experience over the coming months."

When contacted by Polygon, a Twitch representative told us, "It's up to Microsoft to share any details related to the timing and functionality of their Twitch integration."
