Intel released their Graphics Command Center back in March 2019, but it's clearly not finished yet. Instead, Intel has updated it with one of the most useful features that both the NVIDIA GeForce and AMD adrenaline experience offer: gameplay recording.
Intel announced that the video recording and broadcast will be on the WCG (Intel Graphics Command Center) via a Twitter post, bringing its gaming-centric user interface in line with that offered by competitors AMD and NVIDIA, particularly Intel Xe. And luckily, if you want to try it out yourself, you can download the beta software via Microsoft Store.

While it doesn't look as reliable as what can be done with NVIDIA ShadowPlay, which allows you to assign a hotkey via GeForce experience to record the last 15 minutes of gameplay, it will at least allow you to actually record gameplay. However, because Intel's integrated graphics are now limited to integrated GPUs, performance is likely to take a plunge - but that's about the future - the far future, if the rumors are to be believed.
That's right, it looks like Intel wants to make sure its game software is up to par when Intel Xe graphics cards eventually make it to market. That will probably be some time, since the Intel Xe DG1 GPU we've been playing in CES 2020 is still in its early stages, and probably won't be in consumer hands for quite some time.
However long we have to wait for Intel's graphics cards to mainstream, we hope to see a lot of additional software features as it makes its way into its software. Who knows, maybe by the time we get our hands on an Intel Xe graphics card, the Intel Graphics Command Center will be as fully featured as an NVIDIA GeForce experience or an adrenaline rush.
