Twitch streaming returns to Xbox Dashboard in new update

Microsoft is bringing Twitch streaming back to the Xbox Dashboard today. Manufacturer Xbox began testing the integration in October, and Twitch will now integrate into the Xbox Guide interface, complete with webcam support. Twitch first appeared integrated into the Xbox One dashboard in 2014, using a Snap interface to allow gamers to stream gameplay to Twitch.

Twitch streaming will now appear in the Capture & Share tab of the Xbox Guide, and you’ll simply need to link your Twitch account to access the streaming features. Headsets and webcams are supported, and you can manage game or mic audio levels, include a friend’s audio from party chat, or manually set Twitch’s resolution and bitrate.

Twitch supported Xbox streaming in its own app for a while, but direct integration into the Xbox Dashboard is now returning after Microsoft removed its Snap feature and Twitch integration in 2017.

Twitch integration will be available on all Xbox One consoles and Microsoft’s latest Xbox Series S/X consoles today as part of a new dashboard update.
