Xbox One’s Recorded Game Clips Now Properly Embed on Twitter; Coming With November Update

on November 4, 2014 1:08 PM

If you like sharing your game clips with the world like a proper social media butterfly and you own an Xbox One, Microsoft finally made things easier.

The November update adds the ability to share your recorded game clips directly to Twitter, but until very recently they simply appeared to your followers (and to anyone that happened across them) as an url, lacking the attractive value of a nice video embedded in the browser.

Now Microsoft has solved the issue, and turned its game clips into a format which Twitter will recognize and embed automatically (tested on Google Chrome and Firefox), as you can see from my tweets below.

The change is retroactive, so if you’re a member of the update preview and tweeted videos before, those will properly embed as well in your timeline.

Now that the heaviest gaming season of the year is coming, you can properly spam your friends from your Xbox One as well. What’s not to love?

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
