If you’ve used the Xbox app to share gameplay footage, you know the process isn’t very intuitive.
For example, in the iOS app, I need to download the clip to my iPhone 13 Pro first and then share it via social media. Fortunately, it looks like that’s about to change.
According to a recent tweet from Microsoft’s Larry Hryb (Major Nelson), users will soon be able to create publicly shareable links directly within the Xbox mobile app. These links will then be located in a new “trending content” section that features other public links shared by players on your friends list. You can also take these public links and share them on a social media platform like Twitter or Facebook.
The feed itself will look a lot like TikTok, allowing users to scroll through content and like, comment and share videos.

These new features are currently being tested with a small number of users but will soon be rolled out to everyone, according to Hryb.
As someone who often shares Infinite Halo excerpts on TwitterI hope the ability to share public links will make this process a bit more seamless and intuitive.
