Sharing epic Titanfall moments is about to get a lot easier for Xbox One owners.

A new YouTube app headed to the console tomorrow will finally enable gamers to upload recorded gameplay clips directly to their YouTube accounts, Microsoft announced today.

Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 record game sessions and share them with the world. But until now, Xbox One owners could only share videos to Microsoft’s OneDrive or stream their sessions live via Twitch.

The addition of easy YouTube sharing likely won’t win over many new customers for Microsoft, but it’s yet another feature that Sony doesn’t offer in the PlayStation 4 (which can only share videos on Facebook).

The new Xbox One YouTube app also shows videos split-screen in Snap Mode as well as adds YouTube channels to your console’s OneGuide (which also lists TV channels and content from other apps).
