Discord is adding built-in gameplay streaming to its voice channels

Discord’s ‘Go Live’ lets gamers stream to up to 10 people

Discord’s ‘Go Live’ lets gamers stream to up to 10 people

The new features will begin rolling out August 15, and the plan is to have it available to all users about two weeks after that. "Go Live keeps things simple - there's no complicated set-up, and it's just one click to stream a game to a server". It features integrated voice chat - a must-have feature for anything related to Discord - and low-latency streaming, so your friends won't be 20 or 30 seconds behind the action. As Polygon noted, the Go Live feature is an extension of Discord's screen sharing feature - but can only be activated if the system detects that the user is running a game.

It doesn't sound like it takes much to start streaming with Go Live either.

Omar Abdullah’s National Conference challenges decision to defang Article 370 in SC
Since they were partitioned in 1947, the two countries have fought three wars - in 1948, 1965 and 1971 - two of them over Kashmir. India-controlled Kashmir has been under an unprecedented security lockdown to prevent unrest as the decisions were announced.

There are a few other limitations.

Go Live streams will be broadcasted to viewers at 720p but for Nitro Classic users there will be a 1080p option available too, while standard Nitro users will have the ability to stream at 4K.

As most software does in today's day and age, Discord is constantly improving through regular feature, bug fix, and general usability updates. Having viewers limited to ten means the player streaming will likely feel less pressured to perform for a large audience (real or imagined), and it could be cool to hop in a server and have a look around to see who's playing what. Instead, it's about letting your friends watch you play games as you all chat about what's happening, just like the good old days (kind of).
