Upload and share Xbox One gameplay using SkyDrive

Cloud source your footage.

Xbox One will let you upload gameplay clips to SkyDrive, Microsoft's cloud storage application, the company has announced.

The video file will appear in SkyDrive in a special Xbox One gameplay directory which can then be accessed by your smartphone, tablet or PC. From there you can share the 720p MP4 files to any social network or edit them further.

"Xbox One is the only console that allows you to take your clips to any social network, video upload site or professional editing tool," Microsoft boasted in a new Xbox Wire blog post.

Xbox One's built-in gameplay recording allows you to capture up to five minutes of gameplay for editing. For a shorter snapshot of footage you can also say "Xbox, record that," which will grab the last 30 seconds.

Your recorded gameplay can then be edited in Upload Studio and shared via Xbox Live to appear in your activity feed.
