Newsbrief: Electronic Arts will soon update its Origin online game service, adding the ability for users to live-stream whatever they're playing with minimal fuss, and allowing for non-Origin games to be added to your library.

Popular video streaming service Twitch has been integrated into Origin, and users will be able to simply click a video broadcast button on the Origin overlap while playing a game to start up a live broadcast on the Twitch website.

You'll also be able to track exactly how many people are watching your broadcast from inside whatever game you're playing.

Elsewhere, the update will introduce the option to add non-Origin games to your library, with shortcuts to games not purchased on Origin added to your client. At the moment, only games purchased or activated through Origin can be booted up through the service.
