Mixer Feedback & Ideas

We love hearing from our customers. To help us build the best version of Mixer ever, we have partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to create this site to hear your ideas and suggestions. The teams working on Mixer regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. While we can’t guarantee any specific features or timelines, we will read all suggestions, and we may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

Thanks for helping us to improve Mixer!

  1. Allow custom avatar circles.

    Streamers sometimes like having certain users don distinctive colors to easily find them in chat. While the color coded system for usernames is fairly ingrained in the Beam system, it could be argued that allowing a user to customize the border circle around their avatar wouldn't interrupt this existing system. But, it would allow the user to create a unique visual ID of themselves that would be easier for streamers to see without great disruption of existing systems. Allowing custom border shapes, patterns, and colors would be very useful here.

  2. Make Hosting Even More Useful

    The following are a few ways that a few of us here on Beam think Hosting a channel could be used to improve the benefits to the streamer, the community, and the viewer:


    1. Have a "Hosts" section on the beam.pro homepage (either between those you follow that are live and the unfollowed live streamers or on it's own tab, like Rising Stars, etc...)
      This would benefit both the streamer and the community in two ways. First, if someone goes to beam.pro and sees a bunch of the people in their community hosting a channel, then they are likely to go…

  3. I would like to See the Spark emotes box smaller

    I would like to see the Streamers Spark Emotes have it's own tile. That way the video size isn't affected by the streamers made spark emotes. So it would keep the standard size video display. As well the Emotes Could be up to 30 in that tile and you could hover your mouse over for the full description of them before you spent you spark if you wanted. Not sure if 30 is the right number but wouldn't want it to interfere with any streamers bio or any other important information they want people to know

  4. 2 small tweaks to interface

    First, add a checkbox in options or on interface itself, that allow controls to be hidden by default. Its rather annoying to tap that "toggle controls" every time entering new channel.
    Second, allow messages like "this channel has been marked as mature by the caster" to be disabled. Maybe checkbox as well. Again, its annoying and usually useless(while i understand it to be related to age restrictions, its pointless for people who are past puberty). I watch streams on my second monitor(15") and that message appears right on top of "toggle controls". Combined with first issues, its a lot of…

  5. Display Selected Game Name Filter

    Show the name of the selected game in the "STREAMING NOW" row if a game filter has been selected (instead of the 'streaming now' text). Reasoning: the user expects to be shown streamers who are currently streaming so it's a little unnecessary to say that they are indeed streaming (especially since when they're not streaming it is specified with another divider, and currently streaming streamers have viewer counts on their cards, further visually differentiating them), and game names are sometimes so long the full name doesn't fit nicely in the sidebar or on the cards, a nice screen-wide bar like…

  6. Will you guys ever consider working with 3rd party websites such as frankerfacez for custom emotes?

  7. Video player compatibility with Facebook

    It would be great you can add video player integration with Facebook, the people would see the streams directly into Facebook, like twitch.

  8. Clocks below the video?

    I've seen quite a few people already that display their time in their stream, so that viewers know what time it is there.

    But I think, maybe, based on a timezone setting somewhere and a flag to either show or hide it, we should be able to display a little clock somewhere so that it's a standardized design that would keep the videos a bit cleaner.

    Also VODs should save the "initial" timestamp so that they can show what time it was in the VOD at point X.

  9. emoticons

    To show all of your current subscriptions emoticons so you know which ones you have available and can quick select them in other chats.

    Also good if you don't auto re-sub and are unsure if the emote is still available to you.

  10. Global Lurk Toggle

    There should be a global toggle for Lurk Mode, so people who lurk often don't have to turn on Lurk Mode every single time they join the stream.

  11. Use franchises to create "hubs", instead of using individual games to organize and display Beam game list

    There are many games that have some sort of expansion or new sequel or even old version of the game. Sometimes I have even seen games with same name displayed as if it was two different "Games" here on Beam.

    So my idea is to make Beam better than the "Twitch way", where sometimes I got to see: Aion, Aion: Assault on Balaurea, Aion: Dark Betrayal, Aion: Upheaval.
    And even if all channels were on the same latest expansion/Version, they were all scattered around with different names because the streamer didn't bother to update the game.
    So I always wished…

  13. Add functionality to clear the "Game you're streaming" field

    As someone who frequently hops onto new and/or pretty small Indie games (as well as some bigger games), that are not yet in the Player.me or Beam databases, I'd like to be able to set my currently streamed game to null as to not having to stream under a different game or a tag like "Podcast".

  14. 360

    I would really like to be able to stream interactive 360 videos and be able to take advantage of this new technology. I thought it would be a really cool idea

  15. Change the fullscreen borders (colors) to black

    Change the fullscreen borders (colors) to black

    I'm talking about this --> http://i.imgur.com/hl9wjKB.jpg

    plz fix the borders i kinda get sick watching it. or atleast a profile option to turn it off.

    and the stream vanishing effect after exiting the fullscreen mode
    is disorienting. i think it would be better without any flash effect.

    Another suggestions: would be having donations/info exactly below the streaming frame. (flip option)

    thx in advance.

  16. Toggleable Following Widget

    I'd like to keep who I'm following private, but others wouldn't mind making them public. What I'm suggesting is making an option to either keep who you're following private, or public. Thanks Beam team!

  17. Look through the 'Browse' section without leaving the stream you're on.

    It would be really cool if you could browse the 'Browse' tab while on a stream without havigating away - this way you can see if there's anything else you want to watch BEFORE leaving the stream you're on. Just a nice quality of life change that might be appreciated :)

  18. Stream Team Page

    I've noticed the stream teams browsing page seems to have the same stream teams in the same exact order no matter if there are people streaming from the teams or if there are no one streaming on the teams. Also almost every time I attempt to scroll down to look through teams it almost always locks up and destroys the browsers functioning(FireFox). On Chrome it works slightly better.

    What if the stream teams page were to just shows the teams that have streamers currently online? Doesn't have to be based on viewers or anything, but just being live. Would kill…

  19. Total the users for specific chat types

    In the chat show viewers thing, please add the number of viewers per chat group next to it.

    Example:

    Viewers [73]
    Pro Viewers [4]
    Moderators [6]

    Etc...

  20. Stream channel name in browser tab

    It would be great so that when in Chrome or any other browser, my page tabs of Beam show the name of the channel I'm watching. As you can see from the attached screenshot, I can clearly see who I'm watching on Twitch but not on Beam (on the same person's channel for both platforms). This wouldbe a nice additional feature of the UI
