VIDEO: Twitch on Xbox One gets major update The Twitch app for Xbox One has gotten a major update greatly improving search, and also adding video-on-demand and a Home screen revamp.
The search now allowed you to use Xbox Live's new ability to associate real-time gameplay stats with broadcasts, which enables a massive array of search options. The filters could include player stats, game modes, maps, player skill level, in-game activity, progress, and so on.

"Want to search for the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare broadcaster with the highest kill/death ratio? How about instantly queuing up a Halo match from whoever has the highest rank in Slayer mode, or finding Forza Horizon 2 players who are driving a specific class of car?" writes Larry Hryb.

The update means that up and coming broadcasters can find an audience because if they are very good at games they could quickly attract an audience.

Additionally, Xbox One is the first platform which brings a full-featured Twitch app including video on demand. You'll begin to see highlights and past broadcasts available to watch at any time, even when the broadcaster is offline.

The Home screen has also been updated to provide a more personalized experience while broadcasters can take advantage of new profile pages.

Here's a video overview of the update:
