Have you started streaming from your Xbox One or Series X/S and want your Twitch chat to be able to hear your stream? When playing with friends in a team based game, your chat with friends may be vital to your audience. If your playing something where communication is key allowing your chat to hear your team mates makes their experience much more immersive as a viewer. In this tutorial we are going to show you how to share your Xbox Party chat on your stream.
Let’s jump in.
How To Include Xbox Party Chat On Stream
There are a few methods to share your chat with friends to your stream. Below we have 3 different options. If you are using the Twitch app on Xbox then use Method 1&2. If you are streaming with a capture card then you can use Method 3.
Method 1 – Xbox Party Chat
Xbox has a feature built in allowing you to share your Xbox Party chat through the Twitch app. However for this to work everyone in your party chat will have to confirm that they allow their chat to be broadcast. This will allow your Twitch chat to hear anyone that you are playing with in your party. Your Twitch chat may still not be able to hear other players that are in your game depending on the game you are playing.
Step 1 – Start A Party
The first thing you need to do is start a party with your friends. To do this hit the Xbox Button on your controller to open the menu and then select Parties and Chats –> Start A Party. You can then select Invite more and invite your friends to your party.
Step 2 – Allow Audio To Be Broadcast
If you want to broadcast other people’s audio you will need to make sure that they select the “include my audio” checkbox in the Xbox Party Chat screen. To do this click the Xbox Button and then Select Parties and Chats –> Include My Audio.
Step 3 – Set Party Chat Volume In Twitch Chat
You now need to make sure that your party is not muted in the Twitch app on your Xbox. To do this go to the Twitch app, move down to the audio sources and un-mute Party Chat. Here you can also adjust the volume of the party chat to balance your friends audio levels compared to your mic volume on the stream.
Method 2 – In-Game Chat
In certain games you are able to hear your in-game chat on your stream. This means that in some games you can play with Randoms and your Twitch stream will be able to hear the people you are playing with. However there is a lot of games that do not allow you to broadcast game chat due to privacy reasons. You will need to check if the game you are playing allows broadcasting or not.
Method 3 – Streaming Via A Capture Card
If you stream your Xbox gameplay via a capture card and PC setup then your stream should automatically be able to hear your Xbox Party chat. Any audio coming through your head set/TV will also be being sent to your PC via your capture card. Even if your friends have not enabled audio broadcasting in your party chat your stream will still be able to hear it.
You should now be able to stream your party chat with friends/team mates directly from your Xbox Party chat whether your streaming from the Twitch app or through a capture card. Enjoy being able to stream with your friends.
