Boasting of over 2.2 million unique monthly streamers and an excess of 292 billion minutes of content watched, Twitch is currently the world’s biggest online streaming platform, especially for gamers. While PC happens to be the most common ground for streamers, streaming on Twitch from your gaming console is actually a much easier task. In fact, the service comes integrated on your consoles, so there is no need for you to install any third-party broadcasting software. So, would you like to know more? Well then, read on, as we show you how to stream games on Twitch using your PS4 or Xbox One gaming console:

Note: It goes without saying that you will be requiring a Twitch account for the following method. In case you don’t already have one, you can sign-up for Twitch here. Also, while console gaming supports native streaming, we recommend using a capture card.

How to Stream PS4 or Xbox One Games on Twitch

Note: The following method was carried out on a PS4 since it has Twitch streaming embedded natively. However, if you wish to stream games from your Xbox One, you will first have to download the Twitch app (free) on your Xbox One by following the link here or by searching for it in the Store. After that, the process would remain the same for both the consoles.

1. First off, launch the game of your choice. Then, press the “Share” button on your controller. In the Share settings that show up, select “Broadcast Gameplay”.
