Music on Mixer for Console and Community
I’ve been a user of mixer(beam) for a few years now. And, although much has changed since the partnering with microsoft, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed much of my experience with the app in both streaming and viewing. I’d like to thank a member of the support staff, Olayer, for pointing me to this website.
The addition of built-in streaming on the Xbox one has been, hands down, a game changer for both mixer and all of console streaming alike. However, one thing that competing streaming apps still have above mixer is the ability to stream music on their respective mediums. I would love to see some possible collaboration between mixer’s staff and the minds behind Spotify and the like to create a selection of music available to be streamed directly through mixer. (either licensed music playlists for a special subscription fee, or public domain/non copywritten music like the works of Tobu/Approaching Nirvana) This could even be an opportunity for mixer to work with their users to produce music that other streamers can share both listening (and maybe even a way to give monetary compensation to the composer of the song/find more information on it). There could be an option, similar to donating directly to the streamer, for donations that a small percentage could be reserved for the streamer and mixer, sending the rest to the composer. Granted, these songs would have to be vetted before being released, should that be a course of action, but it could be a chance to expand the community (especially if viewers could report a song to be reviewed or fully vet them themselves!).
I hope to see many new changes to expand the community in the future!
Thank you for your time.

Could there be a way to put a spotify connection for viewers who have a spotify premium subscription to click to listen to what I'm currently listening to? As long as we both have spotify premium. Seems like that would eliminate the problem of some of the music permission problems on both ends. TLDR Link spotify premium button between caster and viewer
