  1. Exclusive section for mobile games.

    I think it would be interesting a section exclusively for mobile games that are being broadcast, currently it is very difficult to discover them, and also I do not see a great effort from other platforms in relation to this would be an interesting niche to explore, mobile games are in continuous growth, even more this year we have several weightlifting like Arena of Valor, Paladins Strike and Vainglory, is a good opportunity for the Mixer.

  2. Unified Search

    There should be a unified search option front and center on the mixer homepage. Currently the channel search is confusing, when I just want to search for a specific game. Users typically won't know the specific channel name they want to search for, but rather the game they're looking to search for. For the channel search to be front and center makes things confusing. I also encountered an even more confusing user flow when I typed my game search query into the channel search, and then got no results before noticing the game search. After typing my query into the…

  3. Search for streams by title

    I can search for a user/channel name, but it would be helpful to search by title. This would allow me to look for things like "#raidfriendly" or "giveaway" or "Xbox".

  4. Sub Categories

    Most Categories do not need this but there are a few categories that it would be nice to have a sub category for. I do game development and design some times and don't want to just have design as the game. It would be cool if you could set a sub game category. This could be useful for gaming streams as well. If you are playing competitive cs go you would have a different feeling from non competitive or being able to add interactive as a sub category or join-able would all be nice things to add to the end…

  6. Follower Tab

    I think it'd be really cool to have a tab in Browse next to "Following" labeled "Followers" which when clicked shows all the live channels that follow you.

  7. Game and Stream Filters

    While I have seen a few topics already started talking about filtering for gaming platform discovery, there is another area that should gather some attention. Being able to distinguish console from PC is important, especially when people come into chat and ask "is this on Xbox?", but what about the stream itself?
    There are those of us out there who prefer to watch a stream with or without a web cam, or even just no mic or webcam. I've had other streamers and viewers from my chat agree with me on this. When looking through "Up and Coming" or anywhere…

  8. Categories

    Adding all types of Categories to Beam so you can find what you want to watch (specifically)
    On the Beam home page there is
    Featured - All Streamers - Up and Coming - Teams - Homes (mock image attached)
    Homes (or Categories) will drill down/animate another bar of all the homes that are a part of Beams Family
    All - PC - Console - Mobile - Creative - IRL - Music - Esports (and we can add in any others that are missing) and now the newly added Console Broadcasting!
    Any broadcaster can tag their stream to be in a…

  9. Search for more than a channel.

    The ability to search on a more global level, like Stream titles and game titles. Right now when you search on the homepage it is only by the channel (user) name. The ability to have it filter the game and stream title would be nice.

  10. Add Note to "Following" Page

    When you go to the "Following" page and click through the games, and no one you are following is streaming that game you simply get a "No channels found" message. In my opinion, this should be expanded to something like "No followed channels streaming {game}. [Click here] to see non-followed channels" or something of that sort.

  11. Alphabetic Game List Order

    I'm not sure if this has been requested already, but wasn't able to find anything.
    Could we get a game order option to be Alphabetical instead of by view count?
    Something like an icon A >Z and then an "eye" to switch between the orders.

    Thanks.

  12. Sort search results based on applicable statistics

    Currently, search results return what appears to be an unsorted list of results. It would be helpful if searching returned results weighted by stats or "relevancy"

    For example, if you search for Markiplier, you get a ton of channels that start with "markiplier" but none of these are the markiplier you're probably looking for. In fact, Markiplier is the last channel in the results list.

    Anyway, hope that makes sense!

  13. Tags/Filters to find or display games. (just like LFG Xbox feature but of course for Beam games)

    Like the title says, it would nice to be able to find games based on our tags.

    For example:
    The streamer can add "no mic" "no cam" to the tags, so if people are interested in a stream with that, they will know what channel/tag not to search and click on.

    It could also help to know what kind of interactive stream channels are using, from just soundboard to interactive automated buttons or co-op or something like that.

    Also streamers can add the "no swearing" tag so people know those channels will be okay if they don't like so much…

  14. Tab to see who "friends" are watching

    In the browse tabs, there should be an other tab so you can see who your friends are currently watching.

    Friends being people who follow you and you follow, putting then under streams that you currently hover over and see who is watching.

    I think it would be a cool addition to see where your friends are hanging out

  15. Making Hosting usefull

    I think it would be really cool if hosting was made into something that can actually assist the smaller channels. As of right now the only time it can help out a smaller channel is if you host someone right after they are done streaming currently and go on to host them so that your current viewers go over to the other channel. What would be super awesome is if an email was sent out like when you go live saying "X Streamer is now Hosting X Streamer" like the ones that go out saying someone is live. As well…

  16. Make Hypezone Hype Again

    Lately I feel like Hypezone is well, not active. It has views which is great but there is no chat, no one follows or hosts or interacts with your stream at all. It feels, well, dead. I think a lot of this has to do with the split chat, I remember when the chat was combined and there was always people chatting and interacting with the stream being hosted. I think Hypezone is a fantastic idea to help out smaller streamers grow, and that can only happen through interaction. I believe re-combining the chats would be a large step in…

  17. Mixer Wheel feature

    Hi, my name is JessyBot_Gaming, would there be a chance in there being two different feature wheels for non-paid and paid slots and would you say its a fair idea.

  18. Opt-in or out of being visible on PC or Xbox

    I think the streamer should be able to decide if they want to be visible on Xbox or PC. Some streamers receive harassment for not being on Xbox, and probably vise-versa. While it's obvious that it would hurt growth numbers, I think it should be down to the streamer to decide.

  19. Please allow filtering out certain terms in search

    I would absolutely love to see a filter which's function would be to filter out certain terms in stream titles. I believe this would definitely make me more interested in spending more time on Mixer as it would help me sort out much of the content I find unappealing. For example, I would love to filter out every single stream which's title includes terms such as influence (thanks Forza), farm, giveaway among others. This should ideally be an open text field rather than some list of options so as to allow the term list to be updated as tastes and…

  20. Spark Recognition

    Using Sparks as a currency for "engagement", it would be neat to recognize non-partnered or lower view-count stream thumbnails with a small "spark" icon to call out to potential viewers that this is an engaging stream, or create an engagement filter altogether.

    This can also be used as a metric to recognize when searching for potential feature streams.
