App X, formerly known as Twitter, is becoming less and less useful on Sony’s PlayStation console.
According to Polygon, Sony will discontinue X, the social networking service formerly known as Twitter, on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles next week. According to a notice posted to PlayStation’s support site, viewing any content shared by discontinued on November 13.
Sony never updated the console Twitter app’s new branding to X. The app is a simple way to share screenshots and game clips from multiple people’s PlayStation consoles to social networks In the century. Every day, thousands of multimedia content recorded on PlayStation are shared with X with the hashtags #PS4Share and #PS5Share.
With the move to discontinue support for Twitter/X integration, PlayStation users will soon have to take a few extra steps to share information on the platform. The simplest method would be to use Sony’s official PlayStation App for Android and iOS, which allows them to transfer screenshots and clips from PlayStation consoles to mobile devices.
Sony’s rival Microsoft made a similar move earlier this year, removing Twitter/X integration from its Xbox consoles and Game Bar on Windows. Microsoft’s decision coincides with Twitter/X rolling out a new API pricing structure, which could cost companies like Microsoft more than $40,000 per month for X.
Currently, only the Nintendo Switch still supports media sharing on the social networking platform owned by Elon Musk.
