After the long wait, Microsoft is finally fulfilling its promise to improve the broadcast of live games from its latest generation Xbox consoles, allowing Xbox Series X and S users to perform streams on Twitch directly from your console system.
Although, without a doubt, the most interesting thing about this functionality is, without a doubt, its great ease of use. And it is that the players so will only have to link their Xbox and Twitch accounts (in the event that they had not already done so), access the system guide menu, and choose the “go live now” option to start broadcasting. In addition, this integration also comes with access to some additional and useful options for the host, such as the presence of the bit rate, the resolution, the name of the title and even the possibility of controlling the audio levels of the host. game and microphone on separate channels.
In fact, the integration comes with other smart features like the ability to automatically pause the stream when we stop playing, and even the ability to change the section and title in the event we change game during the broadcast. Therefore, for the Xbox community, we will also have the possibility to hide the reception of alerts while we are live on Twitch, avoiding any pop-up messages during the broadcast.
Although we could call it a bit late, the truth is that this connection with the most important broadcast service today has not surprised anyone. And it is that after the closure of Mixer almost two years ago, Xbox users had remained without a truly integrated live streaming option on their consoles, opting now to offer more direct competition for Sony consoles.
