If you have an Xbox One video game console at home, then you should know by now of the ability to live-stream your video games via Mixer. But did you know its possible to co-stream with someone else? Not everyone knows this, and those who do might not have the knowledge of how to get it done. Now, with all of that in mind, we thought we’d come up with a small guide to help users’ co-stream with family, friends, or complete strangers on Xbox Live. It’s a fun thing to do, and we believe it will become the standard of live streaming in the year to come.
We should point out that co-streaming only allows up to three people at the same time, merging their streams into a single entity. During the stream, each streamer shares the same viewers along with a unified chat experience.
There are a few ways to get co-streaming up and running on the Xbox One, and we are going to talk about them all today.

Co-streaming with friends, families, and even strangers can be an awesome experience with Mixer, so read on to learn more.
- Invite a person from your Friends list
- Invite a party you’re already in.
Let’s talk more about this in more details.
1] Invite a person from your Friends list
The first thing you will want to do is to invite someone from your friend’s list. We suspect most folks on Xbox Live will go down this route, so read along to learn what needs to be done.
Here’s the thing, you must press the Xbox button on the controller in order to open the Guide, and from there, click on People. The next step, then, is to choose the friends you want to co-stream with one before the other.
Select the friend, then click on Invite > Invite to co-stream, and that’s it, to be honest.
2] Invite a party you’re already in
In terms of co-streaming with folks, you’re already in a party with, that is also an easy task to accomplish. Again, you will want to click on the Xbox button that is located on your controller. It will open the Guide once more. From under the section that says Multiplayer, select the option that says Show party details.
Finally, click on Invite party to co-stream and everyone in your party will now be co-streaming with you like a boss.
