PS5 and PS4 are losing X sharing options on November 13

PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles will soon drop their X (formerly Twitter) integrations. As such, after November 13, you’ll no longer be able to post clips or screenshots directly to X from either system.

According to a notice Sony shared on its consoles (as noted by Wario64) and a support page, users will lose 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).” Sony added the notice to its website at some point on Monday, according to a cached version of the support page.

Sony hasn’t revealed exactly why it’s killing off X integration on its consoles. However, it may be related to X shutting down its free API earlier this year, forcing developers and companies to pay if they want to hook into its services. Microsoft stopped letting users post Xbox clips directly to X in April, likely due to that move.

It’ll still be possible to post your PlayStation clips to X. If you have a PS5, you’ll be able to access your recent captures through the PS App and share them to X from your phone. PS4 owners (and PS5 users, if they prefer this approach) will need to use a USB drive to copy screenshots and clips to their computer. Alternatively, you can use one of the several other direct sharing options available on PS4 and PS5, such as YouTube.
