Mojang, the developers of Minecraft, have teamed up with Twitch.tv to integrate gameplay broadcasting in the latest Minecraft beta. The company originally announced their partnership with Twitch at MineCon 2013 in Orlando, Florida. After a short wait, the first publicly testable version of Minecraft with Twitch.tv broadcasting is now available.
Before Minecraft players can begin broadcasting, they need to head over to their Mojang account settings to link their Twitch account with their Mojang account. After that, players can adjust broadcasting settings in the options. To start broadcasting your livestream to Twitch, hit F6, which is the default broadcasting key but you can change it to a different key in the settings.
Since this build of Minecraft (Snapshot 13w47c) is in beta, there will be plenty of bugs. Mojang encourages testers to submit bug reports at this site.
If you want to check out this beta version of Minecraft, make sure you have a PC with Windows XP and up or a Mac with OS X Lion (10.7) and up.
