Starting tomorrow, Xbox One owners will be able to upload gameplay clips captured using Microsoft's Game DVR functionality directly to YouTube. In a blog post on the Xbox Wire, Microsoft said once the update rolls out tomorrow, it will be "easier than ever" to capture and share game clips with people around the world.

Previously, Xbox One users needed to jump through some hoops to upload gameplay clips to YouTube. But no longer. When the update is released, you'll be able to click a button inside the YouTube app to share clips to your YouTube channel.

By comparison, Sony's PlayStation 4 does not offer any YouTube app whatsoever, though owners of that system can share clips to their profiles or to Facebook using the system's "Share" functionality. The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita currently have dedicated YouTube apps.

The updated YouTube app will also let you watch videos in Snap Mode, add new videos to your Pins, earn Media achievements, and add your favorite YouTube channels to the OneGuide.
