Minecraft Twitch integration now open to the public

Minecraft

If you’re reading this, you’re connected to the internet, which means there’s a 98.2% chance that you stream games onto Twitch.tv or upload them onto YouTube. Good news: you can now stream Minecraft to Twitch very, very easily.

Mojang announced that they’d be bringing Twitch integration to Minecraft back at Minecon, and there’s now a publicly available build of the game with exactly this feature. You can read up on the full details on Mojang’s blog over here, but the short version is this: go to your Mojang settings, link a Twitch account to your Mojang account, make sure your game profile has “Enable experimental development snapshots” turned on (so that you get this version of the game – and you may want to set up a profile specifically for this), and then press F6 while playing. Voila! You are now broadcasting blocks to the internet, and I have now typed the word “Mojang” so many times that it has lost all meaning.

Mojang notes that the integration probably a bit buggy as this is still a development snapshot, and that not all of the features they want are in yet, but I doubt that’ll stop the internet. You guys’ll be streaming this regardless, I’m sure.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
