    Split Party Chat and Game Audio while streaming on Xbox Companion App


    Hello,

    I use display capture in Streamlabs OBS and the Xbox Companion App to broadcast to Twitch. Currently both game audio and party chat are broadcasted when playing with friends as both fall into “Desktop Audio” in Streamlabs. I’m looking for ways to not include
    party chat in the broadcast, which is an option if you stream Twitch directly from the Xbox. Basically, I still want to use the Xbox companion app to chat in a party while also streaming my console, but I don’t want the party chat coming through and I haven’t
    found a method to solve that other than muting the party in the app. I’d appreciate any suggestions.

    :)

    Split Party Chat and Game Audio while streaming on Xbox Companion App

    Hi There,

    There are some headsets that split game and chat audio into separate connections, my Steelseries headset allows this so it does not use the same audio connections. However I have seen a few tricks that people do where they change around the communication
    device on their pc set it in StreamLabs and then set it back, so you would hear it but the stream wont. If you google "exclude party chat from streamlabs" there are a few YouTube tutorials on how to accomplish this.

    No In-Game chat while using Xbox Companion App

    I stream using the OBS software and capture the Xbox Companion App. Regardless, if i were to attempt to use the app as intended to wirelessly stream the Xbox on my laptop, I am unable to hear the in-game chat of certain games. I do not know if this falls
    more on the shoulders of the game developers or is an issue with the Xbox and the Xbox Companion App.

    If I were to utilize the Twitch app on the Xbox I experience issues with in-game chat as well. I have to set up a private party then re-enter game chat for it to work and the in-game chat is still not broadcasted to the twitch network. Party chat is broadcasted
    when others include their audio voluntarily, but there doesn’t seem to be a way for in-game chat to be given the same option.

    Xbox Console Desktop Application Issues

    So to verify, this is the rebranded Xbox Console Companion app? What used to be the Xbox app prior to the Xbox (beta) app for Xbox Game Pass PC? And the situation is that you want to stream the game from the console via the App, and then stream to your
    platform of choice (Mixer, Twitch, YouTube, etc) from the PC capturing the game from the streaming, and the audio from Party Chat via the Xbox App? What are you using to stream, the built in Game Bar?

    Further details on how your set up, and what you're trying to do can assist in further identifying the best troubleshooting steps.

    I do know that if you're in a party on the Xbox, and streaming natively, that it requires the others opt in via the party to include their audio. Are you sure users are doing that in your LFG or not on your friends list?

    Xbox Companion app and streaming on twitch

    Hi InFi,

    as far as i know, this is either only capable over a game capture card. or potentially with some work around streaming over the companion app.

    On a capture card you just share party chat audio to Speakers and Headphones, that should have a similar effect on ingame chat.

    No In-Game chat while using Xbox Companion App

    Hi AustinM2,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. I'd be happy to help.

    Are you streaming to Twitch directly from the Twitch app on the Xbox? Or are you streaming your Xbox One to your PC through the Xbox Console Companion app? Are you using party chat on the Xbox, or a party through the Xbox Companion app?

    What you are describing is by design using the Xbox Live party chats because the servers for the chat are separate from the in-game chat servers. Xbox Live parties effectively mute in-game chat, and mute yourself from in-game chat as well because as I mentioned
    previously, party chats and in-game chats run on different servers. Xbox Live parties are more private channels for chatting with friends, so the muting aspect is by design. I believe this is why many Twitch streamers use Discord since you can hear both the
    Discord chat and in-game chat at the same time.
