Xbox One is not going to support live gameplay streaming via Twitch app at launch. This distinctive feature is available for PlayStation 4 gamers at launch. However, Microsoft promises to deliver the live Xbox One broadcasting feature during the first part of 2014.

Xbox One is not going to offer the ability to instantly broadcast game play at launch. Microsoft has just teased the Twitch app that will be available for Xbox One at launch. Microsoft states, "The Twitch experience on Xbox One will enable Xbox Live Gold members to view the full content catalog from tens of thousands of PC & console broadcasters on the Twitch platform." Xbox One Twitch app will provide users the most robust viewing experience on the market for any console, utilizing features such as Snap mode, instant switching and OneGuide Favorites. 

But the most awaited feature of live streaming will not be available for Xbox One users at launch. On the other hand, PlayStation 4 gamers can broadcast their game play direct to Twitch with no additional hardware or devices needed in a convenient push-button experience. But Xbox One won't support live streaming via Twitch until 2014.

The absence of live broadcast can prove a big disadvantage for early adopters. It will be a major difference between PS4 and Xbox One. 

Microsoft states, "We know the ability to instantly broadcast game play is something the gaming community is excited about, and we are too. We are working to ensure the initial Twitch on Xbox One broadcasting experience meets the expectations of the Twitch community, so while this feature won’t be available right away, we’ll let you know as soon as it is ready. Our goal is to deliver it during the first part of 2014."
