Improve your Twitch stream’s production value with a USB microphone, like Yeti X.
That’s all it takes to go live on PS4 and Xbox One, but if you’re trying to become a Twitch Affiliate or a full-time Twitch Partner, you’ll want to improve the production value of your stream. Thankfully, with a few simple and affordable accessories, you can easily make your stream more interactive and entertaining.
In order to connect with your fans, you need to be able to communicate with them. Sure, the chat window works fine in a pinch, but a broadcast-quality microphone can help set you apart from the crowd and make talking to your viewers more conversational.
To enable in-game chat and communication, you can connect the headset microphone included with your console. However, these mics don’t deliver pro-quality sound and often pick up excessive background noise, making it difficult for your fans and teammates to hear you.
Instead, use a USB microphone like Yeti X, Yeti or Snowball, which offer crystal-clear audio quality and tons of useful features for fine-tuning your sound. For more information on the best gaming microphones, check out our blog on the best USB microphones for Twitch streaming.
Another crucial element of pro-level streams is a quality webcam. If you’re on Xbox, you can purchase a Microsoft Kinect. To enable a video feed while streaming to Twitch from your PS4, you’ll need to purchase a Sony PlayStation 4 Camera. Unfortunately, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One do not support USB webcams at this time.
