Sony has announced that support for uploading PlayStation 4 videos directly to YouTube with the console’s Share button will be arriving via a free update later this year.
The news, announced during the company’s E3 press conference, means that players will no longer need to undergo a convoluted workaround to get their videos on YouTube, nor will they be limited to uploading game footage directly to Facebook.
Sony also touted a few other additions to the system’s sharing abilities, including increased support for players who want to interact with streaming broadcasters and updates to The Playroom that introduce new functionality.
Still, the ability to upload directly to YouTube is by far the biggest news of the bunch. It’s a feature that players have been asking for since the system launched. That Sony has listened is encouraging.
