YouTube updates app for Xbox One

Posted on April 8, 2014


It has been revealed that an updated version of the YouTube app for Xbox One will allow users to directly upload game clips to the video-sharing service.

The latest version of the app, which will be launching this week, will see a ‘My Uploads’ feature on the menu that enables players to capture and edit footage of their games. The move comes after many gamers became frustrated about having to use Microsoft’s OneDrive as a middleman to upload videos to YouTube, and called for action to be taken.

YouTube is undoubtedly the world’s most popular video uploading site, and may have taken this opportunity as part of a reputation management plan to remain the number one choice for gamers to upload clips of their gaming prowess.

As soon as the latest update has been installed by gamers worldwide, it is expected that there will be a surge of uploads of ‘world class’ goals from FIFA players and accomplishments from other popular games such as Call of Duty.

As well as this new upload function, the update includes support for Microsoft’s ‘snap mode’, which is designed to permit users to watch and enjoy videos while performing other tasks on the console at the same time.

The list of new features does not end there, as the update is also set to integrate with OneGuide. This function will mean that users are able to have a list of their favourite YouTube channels and subscriptions alongside live television listings.
