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. New algorithm

    Basically, if you're a new streamer, you won't get discovered easily. If there were a new algorithm, or if people were to allow self-promotion in chats, people would be able to grow faster, if at all. The first few viewers is the hardest grind, and current Up and Coming channels are just playing Hypezone games, meaning they'd be there AND have a chance to get Hypezoned. I stream ROBLOX and Oblivion, so I'd only get viewers if they clicked me instead of someone with 2+ viewers, whilst im halfway down the list of channels. Whilst true most people dont stream…

  2. Scan Button

    How about adding a "Scan" button for small streamers to the front page that acts similarly to the scan button on a car radio. Press the button and Mixer randomly selects streamers with, for example, less than 15 or 20 viewers. You'll stay on that streamer for 5(?) minutes before it randomly selects another streamer. Could be a way to incorporate the "Up and Coming" Feature already available on Mixer?

    Ideally, the source of streamers for this feature would be games with 20(?) or fewer congruent streamers streaming said game. This would, in theory, highlight both smaller streamers and "smaller"…

  3. Reverse filtering

    When you try to filter stuff today you can only search for specific games. But people like me who do not really care about the major games get some annoyances every time I have to scroll through all of the channels with Fortnite, PUBG and so on.

    Wouldn't it be great to actually have a filtering system which deselect specific games or tags instead?

  4. HypeZone Streamer Levels

    I think it would be useful, since there are currently so many Fortnite streamers right now, to have 2 or 3 different levels of HypeZoneFortnite. You can have the new streamers, intermediate, and professional. They would be separated by the number of followers they already have. So new might be 0 to 100 and intermediate might be 100 to 1000 and professional might be those over 1k.

    Sometimes it is nice to see the new and intermediate streamers but other times it is nice to not have to get stuck in streams where the people are just hiding.

  5. Allow Streams That Are Featured For 5 Min or Less To Be Featured Again Within The Week

    Hey Mixer Fam!

    I love the new "Featured" algorithm that allows more variety of streamers to be featured on the front page of Mixer.

    My understanding of the new algorithm is that it limits the number of times you can be featured per week to one (1).

    I'd like to suggest a modification to this algorithm. Here is the scenario:

    Billy is streaming, doing his thing, when he starts to notice new names in his chat - a lot of new names. Then one of them says:

    "FRONT PAGE HYPU!"

    This is Billy's first time being featured! He's really excited!…

  6. Share VODs

    There should be an option to share a specific VOD through the app.

  7. Anniversary Design, persistent filter selections, filters are too many clicks

    I want to search only for my language every time I browse channels, there is rarely ever going to be a time I want to search for another language. In order to search a language it is 4 clicks and scrolling every single time you choose to browse.

    Please save the state of the filter choices so that we do not have to choose them every time we click the browse button.

    Thank you.

  8. Up And Coming Streamers for Specific Game

    On the old site, you were able to filter the Up and Coming streamers by a specific game. The new site seemed to remove this. I typically use the Up and Coming to find new streamers, and now it's more difficult to find new casters for the games I watch. The return of this filter would be awesome!

  9. Consolidate Guild Wars 2 channels

    There are currently 3 categories for Guild Wars 2, the base game, the first expansion, and the second expansion. We should be able to consolidate those down straight into Guild Wars 2.

  10. HypeZones - Turn off Fortnite for a Fortnight

    ...and not just Fortnite, all the HypeZones, for two weeks (a fortnight)

    Remember Creed and Nickelback?
    They got a ton of radio play. Were they good? That's up for debate. That said, it got to the point where people started disliking the bands because they were overplayed.

    The same two bands all day long got boring and old. So what happened? People changed stations.

    Why? Because variety is the spice of life.

    Where am I going with this?

    The same two bands (games) getting all the airplay (exposure). Is it getting old? That's up for debate.

    IMHo, the station (platform/site)…

  11. Filter and search for stream title/console played on

    We should be able to search for keywords in titles to help find the types of content we're interested in. Being able to set the console you're playing on as a streamer and enabling viewers to filter by console could help a lot to find content more easily.

  12. R6 HypeZone

    In my opinion, custom matches and casual matches do not belong in the hypezone, not because it isn't good gameplay, but because they aren't fighting for a rank, or losing anything when they lose the round. Ranked players tend to pay a lot of attention to their skill, and if you're able to stream and win a round, you have more skill than the average player.

  13. magic feature

    When will the feature to follow games will come ? Every time i come on this streaming platform, i'm seeing only pubg and fortnite streamers and i'm getting sick of this because i'm not fully able to personalize the content i'm watching. The idea is ...when i type mixer. com on that search bar and the page loads, i want to see the games i'm following and the channels i'm following not what's popular or trending etc . The things i don't want to see can be on another section but firstly i want to see my personalized tab with…

  14. Mixer website enhancement.

    I was wondering if there was a new mixer site on the way any time soon? The feedback site is very unpractical as you see only one by one + a whole lot of text you may not want to read. I believe a Forum ( with titles as headers, so without the actual text inside it ) would be very handy. Myself I'm a Forum lover, but sadly there isn't one on Mixer, I heard there was one when it was still " Beam ". I actually don't want a reddit site or anything, a real Mixer Forum (…

  15. Time Online

    How about a way to display streamers by Time instead of Viewers in Stream? It's just discouraging to be streaming for 5+ hours and yet nobody even enters, either because it is a popular game and the channel is just buried down at the bottom or everyone just clicks on the first channel because they think it's good. It has always seemed to be in my case that the ones that have been on for awhile are more entertaining, engaging, and worth the repeat viewership.

  16. Combining Directories

    I was hoping that Mixer could combine Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon into one category because they are the same game. Additionally perhaps combining the D&D directories into one general one, I know these are widely unused but I'd like to stream under these and have us all be under one, easy to find, directory.

  17. #hashtag

    #hashtags. Searchable hashtag system, so if people wanted to have #speedrunners or #nintendo or #glassblowing then it would help with discovery and exploration of the site without expanding gaming categories to an excessive level.

    Twitch's Creative category used to do this (the streamers, never support from the site itself.. they thought Communities would fill that gap, I guess, but..) in order to further identify what they were doing.

    If we could attach a select number of hashtags to our streams it would help group us together as well as provide easy discovery of other likeminded streams.

    If I were going…

  18. PCHypeZone

    How about a PC Hypezone scrolling through the PC streams showcasing your PC streamers?

    We don't seem to get much expose at present and this would open mixer up more the PC market

  19. Secondary Featured for creative Streamers & consolidate creative

    This is kind of a two part system since first it would require that all non-game streams be under a single creative category. Anything from web shows to game development would be int he same category.

    It would be great to somehow highlight non-game streams. Like a creative featured under the main featured channels. I think it would help show that Mixer is growing into something larger than just gaming.

    It would then be great to be able to choose to brows games or creative streams and when the user chooses to brows one of the other, the featured cards…

  20. Spotlight Streams

    I think Mixer could promote all streamers on the front page by having a spotlight stream section which has 5 channels.

    Like Hypezone these channels cycle streamers 24/7 and have an allocated run time of 30mins, that's 240 stream channels promoted to the front page per day over the 5 channels. This lets viewers find different streamers playing games some viewers wouldn't normally look for.

    This idea wouldn't change hypezone or the featured channels but would sit with these and promote everyone.
