Owners of select Xperia devices can now live-stream their apps and games directly to YouTube and Twitch using Sony’s new Live Screen Streaming app, which is available to download for free right now from the Google Play Store.

Sony’s new app is a lot like Samsung’s recently-released Game Recorder+ app for Galaxy devices, but rather than saving the video for uploading later, it lets you stream directly to YouTube and Twitch. It’s not just for games, either; it will record everything on your screen, no matter what you’re doing.

Live Screen Streaming also lets you choose between 1080p, 720p, and 360p resolutions, and whether you want your stream to be private, public, or unlisted. You can also choose whether you want to broadcast audio from your microphone for commentaries, and video from your front-facing camera.

Sony’s app is available to download now from Google Play via the source link below, but it’s currently only available to the Xperia Z3+, Xperia Z4, the Xperia Z4v that’s coming soon to Verizon, and Xperia Z4 Tablet.
