Streaming games to Twitch on the PC is pretty simple, unless you want to create a more comprehensive UI to layer on top, but for the basics, it’s really easy to get up and running. In fact, streaming from the PS5 is also relatively simple, but on the Xbox, that’s a different story as it can be a bit more complicated to setup.

However, Microsoft has since announced that gamers who are part of the Xbox Insider program will be able to take advantage of a new feature that they are testing out. This new feature is called Console Live Streaming and it basically makes it easier for users to stream games from their Xbox to Twitch.

According to Microsoft, “Insiders can try out live streaming to Twitch by navigating to the “Capture and Share” tab and choosing “Live streaming”. They’ll then need to link a Twitch account using a mobile device or using console Settings. Once the account is linked hit the “Go live now” button to start streaming gameplay to Twitch. This feature only streams game play so viewers will see a pause screen if the user navigates to home or another app.”

The feature is currently in testing so those not in the Insider program won’t be able to take advantage of it. We’re not sure when it will be going live for all gamers and if the final version will be similar to the one they’re testing out, but if you’re a streamer, then this is a feature that you can look forward to in the not-so-distant future.
