Help us make Mixer better for everyone.

Streaming in the Background on Android

My main concern is the inability to even look at notifications on my phone without stopping the broadcast.

It would be nice for the app to run in the background when doing an IRL stream so we could tweet out our streams, look at a text message received, or even have GPS open while streaming. I do a lot of mobile driving streams while the phone is mounted and as an uber driver, I would even like my downtime between passengers to be used talking with my audience since it's the only free time I have lately.

However, if I lose focus on the Mixer Create app at all, even checking notifications on my android phone, it stops the broadcast. It would be a nice option to keep the stream live as long as the app is open in the background, if I did not stop it myself.
