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.

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.
