YouTube adding native support for game DVR uploads on Xbox One

By Andrew Yoon, Apr 07, 2014 9:30am PDT

On Xbox One, you can record gameplay clips by saying "Xbox, Record That." And with Upload Studio, you can edit and share those clips directly from your console. Tomorrow, a new update to the Xbox One app will make it even easier to share game DVR recordings.

YouTube will be integrated with Game DVR and Upload Studio, making it possible to share clips instantly to your YouTube channel. To enable the feature, you must select make sure "share game clips" and "share on social network" are both enabled in Settings.

Direct uploads to YouTube make Xbox One's ability to share recorded video clips significantly easier than on PS4. On Sony's machine, you can only upload directly to Facebook. However, Game DVR requires a Live Gold subscription, while Sony doesn't require a PlayStation Plus membership.

The YouTube app will also be updated with additional functionality, allowing you to watch videos in Snap mode, add individual YouTube videos to your Pins, earn Media Achievements, and add YouTube channels to OneGuide. Finally, watching cat videos on Xbox One has never been easier.
