YouTube now lets you upload gameplay clips directly from Xbox One


YouTube announced that it’s rolling out a newly updated YouTube app for Xbox One today that brings the ability to upload gameplay clips directly from the Xbox’s Game DVR feature. The app will also now support the Xbox One Snap Mode:

YouTube now also supports Xbox One Snap Mode (so you can move it to one side of your screen, where it will continue to run while you do something else on the main part of your screen) ’cause ain’t nobody got time to switch between screens while in the middle of a game. Watch a how-to video while stuck on a board, play an awesome music playlist while you finish a level, or catch up with the guys from TeamCrafted while browsing on your Xbox One.

In addition, users will be able to earn 10 different achievements, such as UUDDLRLRBA for watching more than 5 hours of gaming videos, through the new YouTube for Xbox One app.

You’ll be able to upload new gameplay clips you’ve recorded to YouTube through a new My Uploads option in the app rolling out today on Xbox One. You’ll first have to make sure the feature is enabled by going to Settings and selecting “Share game clips” and “Share on social network.”
