Now Xbox One users can upload their captured game moments directly to YouTube from the console's Game DVR and Upload Studio functions. Game DVR continuously captures the last few moments of gameplay, so when players tell the Kinect, "Xbox, record that," they can start recording the most exciting moments on the screen.
Through Upload Studio, players can then edit and share their videos. While sharing was only previously possible to other Xbox One users and to cloud storage SkyDrive, the YouTube app update available Monday means players can send video to their YouTube accounts.Gamers must also first elect to "share game clips" and "share on social network" in the Xbox One's settings.
The Xbox One YouTube app is getting other updates as well. Subscribed channels can now be added to the Xbox One OneGuide, the overarching channel hub that includes live cable information and queued shows from other video-on-demand apps. Specific YouTube clips can now be pinned to the Xbox One dashboard as well, for frequent easy viewing from the home screen.
