Microsoft may be making it harder to share Xbox clips on Twitter

Microsoft may be making it harder to share your gameplay footage to Twitter, based on changes to Xbox Insider builds reported by Windows Central† Right now on my Xbox Series X, I can post a screenshot or video directly to Twitter through the Xbox interface, but according to Windows CentralInsider builds removed that option and instead asked you to share from your phone.

Sharing Xbox recordings from your phone isn’t new – I actually find it to be a pretty smooth experience. If you select a recording on your Xbox and then the option to share on mobile, your phone should display a notification that directs you to that recording in the Xbox app so you can save it and post it wherever you want.

But with the seemingly imminent change that removes the ability to share to Twitter directly from your Xbox, posting from your phone becomes your alone option. That might not be ideal if, for example, you have your phone in another room while you play a few rounds Halo Infinite† Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nintendo and Sony let you post to Twitter directly from the Switch and PS5, making the potential removal of the feature from Xbox a disadvantage for using Microsoft consoles (that is, if the change affects everyone). However, both Nintendo and Sony have also added features to make it easier to share clips from your phone, perhaps recognizing that many people probably prefer posting to Twitter from their phones anyway.
