A new app called Live Screen Sharing for select Sony devices is now available on Google Play, granting users the ability to livestream gameplay from mobile games directly to Twitch and YouTube. Why is this cool? Because who knows, maybe you could be the next PewDiePie.
Upon running the app on top of a game, you will see a hovering control board for getting your livestream going. Depending on whether you opt for Twitch or YouTube, the layout will change. Overall use is simple — there is a Broadcast button, Record to Device button, Mic button, Video button to enable the front-facing camera to capture your beautiful mug, and a Settings button.
In order to get your livestreams up and running on YouTube, make sure you enable your account to do so right here. If your account is in good standing, you should have no issues.
The only other problem stems from Sony’s device requirements, which currently sits at just the Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4, unreleased Xperia Z4v, and Xperia Z4 Tablet. Boo.
