Xbox won’t stop you sharing clips to Twitter from your console after all

that of Microsoft latest Xbox beta software returns a potentially controversial change in how the console shares gameplay footage to Twitter. Rather than using a phone to post content to the social media network, as a previous Xbox Insider build forced users to do, the update restores the ability to share it directly from the console. The change has been confirmed by Brad Rossetti from Microsoft on Twitter

Being able to use your phone to share gameplay from Xbox is a handy feature and useful if you want to quickly tweet your latest clip. But it’s nice to also have the option to share it directly from the console itself, for those times when you might not have your phone to hand. Fortunately, Microsoft’s controversial change never left the beta.

This more flexible approach has been embraced by both Sony and even Nintendo. Sony’s approach includes automatically uploading PS5 screenshots and videos to the companion mobile app. Meanwhile, Nintendo displays a QR code on the console, which you can scan with your phone to take your shots. More importantly, though, you can both skip these processes entirely and post to Twitter directly from their consoles, if you’d like.
