Less restrictive account logins and purchases
I love to help out and support the streaming community and the best way/most beneficial way for everyone is by donating subscriptions.
However, it;s come to my attention that I cannot gift subscriptions unless I create/login to a Microsoft account. In result i'm certain it is restricting not only the platform and not only the streamer but also people such as my self AND the people on the receiving end of the sub gift. I'm enabled to purchase a subscription for myself using my Twitter login and putting my card credentials in with the "Stripe Checkout" but I'm not enabled to gift a subscription using my Twitter login? Again, it seems like a negative draw back for not only the company but everyone else within the community, it's a loss in sales because I'm not wiling to use my Microsoft account for transactions because it's my xbox account that I no longer use and I don't need to make another Microsoft account just to be able to access a feature that benefits the company.
Along with that the Android app for Mixer does NOT allow you to sign in with a Twitter or Facebook like the browser version does which again is most likely causing a slower adoption rate for the mobile app. If there were more options for the mobile app myself and plenty others would gladly use it more often.
In conclusion the things I've discussed above would benefit the platform as well as the streamers even more with very minimal adjustments. I find it inconstant that I have the option to subscribe to a streamer when I'm logged in with my Twitter account and login with my Twitter account on the browser version of Mixer but I can't gift subs on my Twitter login or even login with my Twitter on the mobile app.
Fixing these small inconstancy would benefit everyone, help the platform grow and make it more widely adopted.
To add on to this, if you want to use a self-run bot like Streamlabs Chatbot, ScorpBot, or Mix It Up, you actually have to make a "dummy" Microsoft account to make a bot account.
Google has it so you can have multiple YouTube channels under one Google account (which you can use a second channel for your bot channel), but Microsoft only allows you to have one Mixer channel under a Microsoft account.
