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. Xbox one integrated Stream overlays

    I would love for you guys to implement a feature that allows for the people who are currently stuck on console for streaming to have a couple simple stream overlays to use. Such as a face cam border and maybe a follower announce. This would be a great way to make console streams look a little sharper and these could easily be managed through the broadcast set-up, you could opt to have it on or off and just like chat overlay choose the position. This feature could be rolled out first for xbox insiders to test it and see if…

    Pro users and Partners will now have the ability to add images, overlays, text, and scene switching to their broadcasts on all of our platforms (including Xbox and Mixer Create) using Lightstream Studio!

    Read more about our partnership and how to get started here: https://blog.mixer.com/2018/04/11/enhance-your-mixer-streams-with-lightstream-studio/

    We hope to expand access to Lightstream to more users as we validate the stability and performance of the feature.

    Followers that are hosting channels will now show up under the new following tab on the browse page as offline. Clicking their channel will allow you to see the host!

    I’ve marked this as started because this obviously isn’t ideal UX, but in the future you’ll be able to see more detail about the hosted channel right in the browse experience, and I’d love to get this more tightly integrated into the primary browse view instead of needing to use a tab.

  3. Complete removal of Banned viewers / subs / donors / etc.

    What I mean is safer & happier Communities.

    Litterly Can't watch watch | Can't Find Stream | Can't share | Can't make new account to watch etc.

    Streamer nows has peace of mind after banning someone ( or a mod )

    Valid points all the way around here. Troll management is a very tricky area, because it’s not always as simple as we’d like it to be. But we’ve got most of these things planned and being created now, you should see them in August. And we are carefully researching a few more tools to help make our streams as safe as possible. I’m marking this suggestion as “started” because most of what’s being asked here is already WIP (see: https://forums.beam.pro/topic/1223/changelog-month-of-july-wip). But the improvements will not stop with this update, we’ve got more coming. Thanks for your patience!

  4. Mixer Affiliate Program

    As of right now attaining partner status can be very difficult for those with disabilities. It would be ideal to allow an affiliate program that anyone can apply to and extremely helpful for those with disabilities who want to attain a status within the Mixer community. For example someone with Narcolepsy such as myself may not be able to stream 25+ hours a month, or have the energy to maintain a large fanbase of 2k followers. As of right now Twitch is more inclusive for those with disabilities because their affiliate program with minimum requirements of about 500 minutes streamed…

  5. Clean Up the Mixer Feedback Portal's Backlog

    I've been looking around the Mixer Feedback Portal and it seems like there has been some features requested over the years here in the Portal which have since been released in production. It might be a good idea to comb through the Feedback Portal's backlog and remove submissions which have been addressed already, with the goal of reducing the overall noise happening within the portal.

    Theres a large amount of feedback across many various topics, and I don't want to go through all of them, but generally speaking the Feedback portal has a feeling of "needing to be decluttered" that…

    We are working on cleaning this up. It just takes time! Especially since people frequently create new threads instead of upvoting others! I spend more time merging threads than I do resolving them for just this reason.

  6. Ember Emote

    I think that we need an ember emote!! I have heard from many streamers that that would be an awesome global emote!
