Broadcast gameplay right from the Origin client.

In the coming days, we'll be rolling out a new update to Origin users worldwide--beginning with players who have opted in to beta updates, and going live for everyone else shortly thereafter.

As always, your helpful suggestions and feedback over the past few months have driven many of the changes you'll see in this new version of Origin. The two most notable additions we've made include the ability to quickly and easily broadcast your gameplay live to Twitch, and the ability to add non-Origin games to your My Games library. Together, these two features unlock entirely new dimensions to your gameplay experience on Origin. Here's a quick look at what's coming.

Twitch Broadcasting

We're proud to announce that Origin is partnering with Twitch, and today we're launching phase one of this integration. With a few clicks of your mouse, you can now broadcast your gaming session live, directly to your Twitch channel, for gamers around the world to view. With the combined power of Origin and Twitch, it's never been easier to take your own gameplay online, in real-time.

To start broadcasting, just start playing a game, then bring up Origin In Game by hitting Shift+F1 (or whatever keystroke you've chosen for your Origin In Game Hotkey). You'll notice a camera icon has been added to the bottom of this screen.

That actually is pretty cool and somewhat innovative.

A lot of upcoming games will have integrated twitch streaming. Sony's Planetside 2 confirmed it will have twitch streaming a few weeks ago I think.

I know Steam integrates with Youtube, we'll probably see a similar feature pop up with Steam and a streaming service soon.

Doesn't Halo and Uncharted have something like this for online?
