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. Notifications for streamers on channel page

    I believe the current state of notifications is a little too confusing for some. If someone wants to watch one of their favorite streamers they should be able to easily turn on that streamers notifications. While watching a streamer there should be a button that enables/disables notifications for that streamer.

  2. Broadcast online without notifications

    A support agent by the name of Tlovetech suggested I post this here:

    Can we get an option to go online without sending notifications to users? Essentially, this would allow streamers to test their streams without annoying their followers. For example, sometimes I have started and stopped streams repeatedly as a part of my personal tests. It would be awesome to not annoy my followers with multiple notifications.

  3. Add settings

    There should be a setting so that the app does not activate while there is no WiFi. I really don't want the app using my data plan while I am in a place I would not use the app.

  4. Don't resend notifications for quick stream disconnects/reconnects

    Currently, if a stream drops for a minute or two, when it comes back up everyone following the channel is resent the "NAME is live" notification. This means if a streamer is having connection difficulties, this could resend 3 or 4 times in one stream. This can get pretty annoying, both for the streamer and viewers.

    I propose that if a streamer disconnects and then reconnects within the next 5 minutes, the notification isn't sent.

  5. Featured

    Would be nice to get a notification in chat by Hypebot when you get featured on the front page. Perhaps something in the API like follows and hosts so you can setup a special stream overlays if/when you get featured.

  6. Notify users if they hit their notification limit for streams

    Currently if you hit your 50 notification person limit, it just seems to turn off notifications for prior streams.

    Could the UI be adjust to show how close you are to hitting that limit, or throw an error that you have to turn off notifications for some streams before turning on more.

  7. notifications for following

    The ability to enable or disable notifications for a channel when you follow.

    As of right now, when you follow a stream it automatically enables notifactions for them when they go live but you can only have notifications on for so many streamers before it stops notifying you when they go live. I would prefer to choose which streamers to have notifications for when I follow them rather than having to go into my account and scroll through all the people I follow just to shut off a notification for one person. Kind of makes me not want to follow…

  8. Discord intergration

    Discord has a server interactive widget where you can see whos online and where on the server without logging in. I think it should be added where you put the server ID or JSON API and you can add it to your description.

  9. on screen notifications

    i think mixer should design a way to inform those that have submitted a request to them to be notified when the request has been responded to, as some matters take longer to find resolution and solution to than other matters, while they (the requestees) are watching mixer channels and streams, instead of sitting at watchbeam or elsewhere awaiting a response to their request or leaving after waiting and then forgetting for some time that they had put in a request or were awaiting a response, or that the response that was due is awaiting their own response to either…

  11. Email notifications go to spam

    Email notifications go to spam. I'm using gmail, but you might want to address the issue or it will reduce your user base by a lot (email notifications are very important)

  12. Notifications from each followed streamer should be enabled by defaut

    In it's current state, notifications are (technically) on by default, but you have to go into another menu and individually enable each streamer.
    If I follow a streamer, that means I want to know when they're streaming. A user will not likely know to go into the sub menu to find that.
    It either needs to appear in the settings without having to dig through menus, or be on by default.

  13. Looking

    I'd like to see the inclusion of a built in notification style system for youtube or other video player websites. Much like twitch has where you can set a popup to play on a video whilst you are live, I would like to see similar thing to come to mixer. A lot of peeps on mixer use youtube as well and I can see it stand to benefit regular streamers who also double as content creators.

  14. This Week on Xbox show is too hard to find

    Before the big update to Xbox One it was very easy to get notified about the weekly show - This Week on Xbox. At that time it always appeared on the dashboard and it wasn't tied to the Mixer community. Now it's just ridiculous. It never appears on the dashboard and you can't even see if you click on the Mixer tab. It's really stupid to have it as part of Mixer because it's not an interactive show, so nobody wants to see it in smaller window with a useless chat window on the side.

    Rather than do all of…

  15. Send notifications to followers when broadcasting a VOD

    Send notifications to followers when broadcasting a VOD.
    Vodcasting could be a way for creators to build their communities.

  16. how about sending users a notification when they've been logged off by the site (not a manual induced log-off)?

  18. Hide your streams from Xbox friends and followers

    I have some Xbox friends, and I know some of them. Because of anxiety, it's hard to stream for me when I'm not anonymous. They may find out that I'm streaming when I'm super-fame lol, but right now, that just contributes to my self-loathing.

    And I doubt I'm alone with this.

  19. Notification options

    I woukd like to know if VOC/VOD part of this site can be <setup> or an option to recieve if wanted when the vids go live.

    I always miss the beginning of a streamer Direwolf20. My kids are just as big of fans as i am. On Twitch we could start the Stream over and just start the VOC/VOD from a projector on to a white board wall my kids draw on ~The free stuff is the best~ Lemme know what the community thinks plox!

  20. Banner based notifications on iOS / Android

    Banner notification by iOS/Android application

    I'd like to receive the notifications when my favorite steam channel is started. It seems to me that now Mixer has the capability to pop-up notifications by web browser based technology. My suggestion is to implement notification capability on iOS/Android applications. If the Banner is pop-upped on my iPhone, I'll be able to catch the events of starting favorite streams even if I'm offline. Any thoughts?
