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. 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…

  2. Music "Game Being Played" Option

    I understand there is a Create option for what your stream is about, as that can be used to express a music stream. But I feel that if a person does not see actual art, on the stream preview, you automatically get looked over. I would like to suggest an option to place "Music" as a "Game Being Played". This makes it more specific to the stream. Even TES: Skyrim has both the original and Remastered as options for that.

  3. Game list pulled from steam and/or other services

    While currently beam only pulls their games that are listed on player.me there is a problem when it comes to games not being listed. Player.me's list in generated by the gaming community and not all gaming companies are gonna go to player.me to add their game to the list until player.me is really noticed by all companies! I suggest a few features to help add games?


    1. Pull a list of games based on what people actually own on steam, origin, or uplay as long as they have their accounts linked. If this is a console game then Nintendo, Sony, and…

  4. filter chat by user

    When chat gets moving, it's easy to miss what someone said. I often see someone's response, but not the original statement. Would be cool if you could click their name/filter and see their history.

  6. Added Controller Support for Interactive

    http://dl.razerzone.com/master-guides/Nostromo/NostromoOMG-ENG.pdf

    This is what I use and it works as a soundboard, but the buttons as far as I know are not recognized by beam's devlab.

    OFC, I'd love for the ps4 and xboxone to be recognized down the line :D

  7. Android app command issues

    /whisper and /w are not aliased.

    /me works, but does not show italics on mobile app

  9. Viewers can enable/disable interactive effects

    I'd like to see options available to the viewer to enable/disable the effects that happen on stream from interactive controls.

    Example:
    I'm working on developing a visual equivalent of the soundboards. Trigger GIFs, spawn particles, flash the screen etc. However, I'm worried those with epilepsy or similar would be unable to watch the stream when these effects are going off. It would be great if they could disable these effects from appearing on their stream.

    If there is a way I could do this within my own interactive development, I'd love to know how to go about it!

  13. Add iDeal payment support

    In the Netherlands, not much people have a credit card. The main payment method is iDeal (over 222 million payments with 17 million people in 2015). I have to use a thirty party if I want to make a payment to Beam, this is annoying and sometimes costs me money.

    Is it possible to add iDeal as a payment method for the Dutch users in here?

  15. Unlisted Channels

    With the FTL protocol, it would be great for people to use beam as an alternative for live commentary with a group, such as Let's Plays. Additionally, unlisted channels could provide people who want to have a stream only accessible to their friends without worrying about troll raids.

  16. 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…

  17. Add a check box or drop down for being "RaidFriendly" or not.

    It would be great to be able to check or uncheck a box regarding being so called, "raid friendly" or not.

  18. Double click on names in chat to add @<name> into chat box

    Double click on names in chat to add @<name> into chat box, much easier than having to type @ and then name or select from the drop down menu. :)

  20. Purge option on popup when clicking a name

    Also, once I load the report option, I can no longer manage the chat unless I close that dialogue box.
