Xbox players will be able to stream gameplay to Discord later this month

The latest update for Xbox One and Series X/S consoles will enable users to stream gameplay to Discord servers.

The details:

  • Microsoft has announced in a new Xbox Wire post that the next major Xbox software update will arrive sometime in September, with various new features and tweaks, one of which is the ability to stream directly to Discord. The feature will be available for both the Series X/S and the Xbox One from the previous generation.
  • Users simply need to link their Discord account to their Xbox profile, join a voice channel in one of their Discord servers, and then select "Stream your game." Players can also select between 720p and 1080p resolutions, as well as 30FPS and 60FPS, with higher performance options locked behind Discord's Nitro subscription, which is also available to PC users.
  • Since the Xbox One, which introduced Twitch streaming via its "Snap" menu in 2014, players have been able to stream their games directly from their console to other platforms. Twitch streaming has been supported since then, and Microsoft later added the ability to stream to the much easier-to-access and now-defunct Beam service, which was later rebranded to Mixer. Even the aging Xbox One has typically handled streaming well in terms of performance, making it popular among those who want to show off something in-game to friends.
