Discord’s newest feature, called Go Live, is something like a middle ground between livestreaming to the entire internet and playing a game with your friends on the couch. The new feature, which Discord announced on Friday morning, will allow users to stream their gameplay directly to friends using the Discord client. The feature is set to roll out on Aug. 15.
Discord Go Live can be activated or deactivated at any time either through Discord’s desktop app, or while playing a game directly through the in-game overlay. The streams themselves will automatically be broadcast to viewers at 720p, however Nitro Classic users will have the option to upgrade their streams to 1080p, while standard Nitro users will have the ability to stream at 4K.
