Streaming Xbox online is one of the key practices among gamers and streamers. Many of them do this to try games that aren't available on PC. That's why gamers like me also favor using Xbox or PlayStation for exclusive games.

But streaming isn't always about streaming to a large crowd. There are times when people wish to stream to a limited group only. That's why many users want to know how to stream Xbox on Discord. While it's not rocket science, it's not really forthright, either. That's why I will try to keep things as modest as possible in this article and demonstrate some methods to stream Xbox on Discord. We will also check some of the prerequisites you'll need before streaming. So let's get started and find out how to stream Xbox on Discord.

👉Preparations for Streaming Xbox on Discord

Can you stream Xbox on Discord? Yes, but before starting streaming Xbox on Discord, you need to make some preparations and learn some information below:

Difficulty Level:



3 Mins

What to Prepare:

  • Ensure both Xbox and PC are on the same network
  • Enable Remote Features on Xbox
  • Link Xbox with Discord
  • Connect Xbox integration on Discord

This means you will have to ensure you let the Xbox console capture the display from an outside source. In this case, it's going to be the PC/Discord while you're in a voice or video channel. But the most important feature, in this case, is Remote Features, and here is how you turn it on:

Step 1. Head into Settings on your Xbox console.

Step 2. Find and tap Devices & Connections option.

Step 3. Then tap on the Remote Features tab.

Step 4. Find Power mode and turn it to Instant-on

This should be enough to let you stream Xbox on Discord. But the job is not done yet, so you cannot stream on Discord right after this. A few more things are yet to do, so let's keep going.
