Get the in-depth scoop on the new features from our GeForce.com article and Support Guides on our Forums.

Share Overlay

Since the initial release of ShadowPlay, gamers have asked us for an easier way to access the feature in-game. GeForce Experience Beta enables the Share overlay – a new in-game overlay that lets you quickly access Recording and Broadcast features. Now you can Broadcast to Twitch and YouTube at 1080p 60Hz.

In addition, gamers can now save and upload directly to YouTube from within the game through the new Share overlay by selecting the Upload option. Trim and title the video and send it right to YouTube. There is even a Gallery option to view and upload recently captured video.

GameStream Co-op

This release also brings a cool new feature called GameStream Co-op that lets you stream your game over the Internet to a friend and play together cooperatively – just as if your friend was sitting in the chair next to you. Using Gamestream Co-op, you can now get help on a tough level, play in co-op mode, or just do a real-time 1:1 live stream with your friend. It's fast, fun, and a whole new way to enjoy PC games.
