Select Xbox Insiders can now broadcast entire Xbox One dashboard on Mixer

Yesterday, Microsoft announced that a "Shopping Cart" feature was making its way to select Xbox Insiders. Well, another feature that slipped under the radar has to be the ability to broadcast everything on your dashboard when you're streaming to a platform like Mixer. According to a new post in Xbox Wire (opens in new tab) by Microsoft's Brad Rossetti and Randy Santossio, "with the latest update we have allowed Xbox users to broadcast not just the game but the entire Xbox console to Mixer."

This is great news because beforehand, a strange screen with two astronauts popped up if a game crashed or you wanted to check up on something on your dashboard. Apart from that, it was also a pain to show people a feature or your Xbox One game library if they requested it while you were broadcasting.

Currently, the option to broadcast everything is only available to Alpha - Skip Ahead and Alpha Ring Xbox Insiders. If you're in those two groups, be sure to keep an eye out for the update later today.

  • Would that include all apps too?
  • According to the Xbox Wire post: Youtube and Netflix will terminate the broadcast but any other app or game won’t terminate the broadcast. You’re perfectly fine with broadcasting any app on your Xbox via Mixer as long as it’s not Youtube or Netflix.
  • isn't that a problem with Videos & TV and Amazon Video?
  • Suppose, MS might add those to the whitelist later as well.

  • Been lucky to use this feature for a week and love it great job Xbox
  • Are you able to broadcast apps too like MS Edge or Any Pre-Loaded or Installed app from MS Store?
  • The dashboard shows your MS account email address in the top left. Does anyone know if this would be hidden in any way?
  • According to the Xbox Wire Post you can keep your email from showing on the dashboard by doing this: To keep your email from showing on Home, go to Settings and choose Account > Sign-in, security & passkey, and uncheck Show on Home.
  • Wow thanks! That's really good to know, and I'm glad that it's actually possible.
