Xbox and Twitch team up to make streaming on consoles easier


Microsoft has fixed your Twitch streaming issue in a new update for Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One as you can now stream directly from your Xbox dashboard without having to open the Twitch app.

This functionality was originally available in 2014 and relied on the Xbox One ‘snap’ functionality. However, Microsoft snap removed completely in 2017which means the ability to easily stream on Twitch has not been supported for several years.

As noted in Xbox Wire, the ability to stream directly from the Xbox dashboard is now available to all users, making it one of the easiest ways to stream to Twitch on any platform. Previously, you would have had to log into the Twitch app itself to start a stream from your console, but this update makes the process much simpler.
