Beam Stream on Xboxone

As you may or may not know, Microsoft just added an update where you broadcast live streams straight from your Xboxone no Capture Card needed. How do Broadcast from your Xboxone you may ask? Press the White X on your controller the scroll down to this Satalight dish icon that is where you can start broadcasting.

Heres is my Beam Stream -


I used to do that with twitch and now it won’t allow me to snap twitch anymore. I’m not a fan of this.
How Beam is better than Twitch? (just curious)

I know Beam’s owned by Microsoft, so I’m guessing that has something to do with it?


That is Correct

Its basically Microsoft competing against Twitch but Beam is doing pretty good since the Xboxone update that came with it you should try it saves you time and money :slight_smile:

The integration is really good and the service is great but… five hour stream, 0 views. At least on twitch you get random people browsing.


Give it time mate its kinda new.

the latency is much better on beam. I am done with twitch. Its beam from now on.
Very happy with the update. :slight_smile:

I’ve tried to snap Beam to and that didn’t work either. My only problem is setting up yet another account for streaming. I’ll think about it before I stream

you can’t snap anymore i think. its now overlapping instead. i think its better.

I have no idea how I’ll be able to do that as of yet. It seems tedius, I could just say “XBOX…SNAP TWITCH” and it would work it was so simple.


Are you advertising Beam for MS? XD

Anyway I was going to try it out , hah. Lets see how it goes =)

Has beam been crashing for anyone else? It crashes frequently for me.

I did an hour stream but noone showed up :frowning:

I’ll try it one day. I’ll see if it’s any better! I’ve heard good things about it.

Beam is to streaming the same way KI is to fighting games IMO. Both are owned by Microsoft. They have better online. (KI has netcode while Beam has lower delay) Both have less users/players compared to it’s more popular counterpart in the group(Twitch/SFV). That’s Beam in a nutshell.
