Here are 4 quick steps to broadcasting your PS4 stream to Twitch:

1. Download the Twitch PS4 App

The first step is simple. Head over to your PlayStation Store and do a quick search for the “Twitch” app. The Search function is located at the top of your screen. Once you’ve found the app, select it, and click download. The app will begin to download on your PS4 automatically.

2. Broadcast Your Gameplay

Once you’ve downloaded the app, everything else is pretty simple. To start your stream, click the Share button on your PS4 DUALSHOCK®4 controller. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to select “Broadcast Gameplay”. This will then bring you to another menu. Select “Twitch” from this menu and then log in to or create your Twitch account.

You will then be given the option to include video or audio from your PlayStation system or include comments from your viewers on your stream. Select your preference. Next, provide your title and set your stream quality. Lastly, click “Start Broadcasting” and your stream will start casting from your PS4 to Twitch.     

3. Be Interactive

Once you’ve set up your streaming, there are a couple more things to keep in mind. If you want to inform your friends and family of where they can catch your stream, viewers can tune in to your Twitch stream on either Twitch or Live On PlayStation.

Your PlayStation camera is a great source for video. If you want to make your stream more interactive and exciting, it’s a great idea to connect your camera and microphone. Also, be sure to pay attention to your viewer’s comments throughout the stream.
