Twitch live streaming won’t come to Xbox One until “the first part of 2014,” Microsoft has confirmed.

When it launches, in addition to streaming, Xbox LIVE Gold members will be able to view the full content catalog of Twitch broadcasters from Xbox One, and utilize features such as Snap mode and instant switching.

Using Snap, users will be able to watch Twitch videos while playing a game or while watching TV. Using instant switching, you’ll be able to quickly jump between activities.

The Twitch app will also come with a set of Xbox LIVE achievements, including ones for watching 100 hours of live video, or for watching a single channel for more than eight hours consecutively.
