Finally, Xbox One Users Can Share Clips Directly to Twitter with April Xbox Update

Post your clips for all the masses to see. 


April's massive Xbox One update is coming in the next few days, and it's bringing several new features with it. If you're an Xbox One diehard, there's one feature you'll definitely be excited to hear about: You'll be able to share gameplay clips directly to Twitter moving forward, as Microsoft apparently brings everyone into the future. It's about time!

If you took a sweet tidbit of gameplay and want to share it with the world, you'll need to authenticate your account from the Broadcast and Capture tab on your Xbox guide, and then go from there. Any captures you share will be displayed directly in your Twitter feed instead of posting a link for your followers to click on. To help others discover what you've posted, Microsoft will add hashtags to the post when it goes live.

If sharing your entire gaming experience is what you’re into, you’ll be able to start your Mixer streams from anywhere on the Xbox One, whether you’re hanging out on the dashboard or in-game already.

There's a smattering of other new features as well, such as Auto Low-Latency Mode as well as support for variable refresh rate output to AMD Radeon FreeSync and FreeSync 2 compatible displays. If you’re in the business of making sure your games look extra nice, you’ll be pleased to know both Xbox One X and Xbox One S now support output at 2560 x 1440 (1440p), which means developers will have the option to make games that run natively at this resolution going forward.

There's a long list of changes coming with this new update, but the Twitter announcement certainly is exciting. Are you going to be making use of that new feature anytime soon? Let us know!
