Gamers, bid farewell to sharing PlayStation content directly to Twitter/X. Today, Sony announced it will discontinue the consoles’ Twitter/X integration. Xbox first removed this feature earlier this year. Sony put out a statement through the PlayStation notifications as shown below:
PS5/PS4 will no longer have Twitter/X integration as of Nov 13th, 2023 pic.twitter.com/Rm0ENYgZmX— Wario64 (@Wario64) November 6, 2023
The statement reads:
As of November 13, 2023, integration with X (formerly known as Twitter) will no longer function on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles. This includes the ability to view any content published on X on PS5/PS4, and the ability to post and view content, trophies, and other gameplay related activities on X directly from PS5/PS4 (or link an X account to do so).
Sharing game content from consoles has been a notable feature on all major consoles since last generation. PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and even the Wii U all featured this capability.
Now, only the Switch still offers the feature.
PlayStation and Xbox Shares are Not Completely Gone
Just to be clear, this only means direct sharing from PlayStation to Twitter/X is over. Any mobile device with the mobile PlayStation app can see their manual shares from the past 14 days appear there. These shares can be shared to any app on the device or even saved directly to the device.
Xbox has a similar feature with their mobile app, but they include any shares the player uploaded to the Xbox network. Captures automatically upload to the Xbox network, but this preference can be changed. Players can set captures to automatically upload to Xbox network under “Profile & System” > “Settings” > “Preferences”.
