Xbox and Twitch have teamed up to make it easier for players and content creators alike to stream straight to the website from an Xbox One or Series S/X.

Twitch is one of the biggest streaming platforms for content creators who love sharing their gameplay experiences with an audience.

Luckily, for those on Xbox without a PC to stream from, you can easily do so straight from the console. Here’s our simple guide on how you can stream to Twitch straight from your Xbox One or Series S/X.

How to stream to Twitch on Xbox consoles

Starting from February 23, 2022, Microsoft/Xbox and Twitch have teamed up to make streaming from the console much more easy and accessible.

According to their blog, “you can now access Twitch directly from the Xbox guide and manage your setup in a few simple steps.”

  1. Navigate to the “Capture and Share” tab on the guide and select “Live streaming.”
  2. Link your Twitch with your Xbox account by following the on-screen steps.
  3. Once linked, select the “Go live now” button to instantly go live and start live streaming games that are downloaded to your console.

It’s as simple as that, but you can also manage other aspects of the stream such as audio, webcam, and resolution.

Adjust your audio, webcam, & resolution while streaming

In order to set up your webcam, first make sure it is one that can be used with your Xbox system by checking the Microsoft support page.

You will be able to adjust the stream title, audio, and resolution all from the live streaming options panel. You can adjust audio here to allow party chat to be heard on stream, or even turn your game volume down if it’s a little too loud.

Further, if you’re worried about sharing too much information on stream, a pause screen will block viewers from seeing all but your game when you are on your Xbox.


There you have it, that’s how you can start streaming straight to Twitch from your Xbox console. For more, check out how to stream to Twitch from a PS5.

GTA V and Elden Ring could come to mobile with Xbox Cloud Gaming

Xbox Cloud Gaming could see both GTA V and Elden Ring come to mobile, as reports claim that plans are underway.

Published

Reports are claiming that both GTA V and Elden Ring could be seen on mobile, as Xbox ramps up their Cloud Gaming plans.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is a new service from Microsoft which will allow players to enjoy their library of games on various devices including mobile versions.

The idea is to allow Xbox Game Pass Ultimate owners to play their favorite games on devices other than an Xbox console. This can be done on either the Xbox Game Pass app or Xbox.com, and they have already announced that players will have access to “over 100 console games.”

To the community’s surprise, rumors are suggesting that both Elden Ring and GTA V could be part of the scheme, which would mean that both games will be available on mobile for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

According to Knoebelbroet, Xbox is “ramping up their plans to bring Games that are not part of the #XboxGamePass to Xcloud,” claiming that games “like GTA V, Soul Hackers 2, and Elden Ring” could be a part of that plan.

The Tweet also contains an image of both Elden Ring and Soul Hackers 2 on the Xbox Cloud Gaming website, but the Twitter user advises that the community should take this “with a grain of salt.”

It would be pretty big to see games like Elden Ring and GTA V on mobile, as these games are some of the most popular around. We saw Apex Legends take to mobile in 2022, so perhaps there’s more to come for mobile gamers.

Apex Legends’ popularity reaches new heights after Season 14 update

With the release of Apex Legends Season 14, the Battle Royale game is experiencing an unprecedented amount of active players.

Published

on

Apex Legends Season 14 has achieved a new peak in popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s FPS Battle Royale game.

Apex Legends Season 14 brings some exciting new content to the game after the battle royale saw a slight dip in popularity towards the end of last season.

Luckily for Respawn, the brand-new Legend Vantage, overhauled Kings Canyon map, and huge Level Cap increase has been a massive hit with the fans, despite players finding bugs and glitches.

The new content has been so appealing that the game has even reached a new all-time peak player count on Steam, showing just how popular Apex Legends Season 14 is.

As of August 10, 2022, Apex Legends has a peak of 510,286 concurrent players, which is the highest it has ever been.

Although it’s only Steam‘s player count, this still shows just how popular the new Season of Apex Legends currently is.

Of course, the numbers are likely to decrease after launch week, but this is still impressive, especially as it shows that the game’s popularity is actually increasing despite being in its fourteenth season.

As Respawn continue to update and introduce new exciting content to the game, the player count will likely continue to rise, especially when players are now guaranteed an Heirloom.
