Microsoft is removing the ability to share on Twitter videos and screenshots directly from their consoles, then Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One. Users who are testing the latest dashboard update must first upload the content using the “mobile sharing“, which requires an additional step that makes everything less immediate and functional.
The news was reported by the Windows Central pages, which also shared an image of the new dashboard, in which we can see how the shares on Twitter, as well as those on Instagram, Whatsapp and Facebook, now have to go through the mobile sharing function .
In other words, to post an image or video recorded with the Game DVR of the Xbox consoles it is necessary first send it to your smartphone and from there upload it to social networks, which makes it much less immediate, an important aspect when it comes to sharing content.
At the moment it is not clear why Microsoft has made this change, which in effect is a step backwards. Windows Central speculates that the decision may have been made due to the low number of content posted on Twitter by players or a possible fee that the company must pay to have access to the social API directly from the consoles, but these are only speculations.
