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.

  1. Finding New Streamers

    Hi Guys As a new streamer to Mixer I find it next or near impossible to find my stream. Would it be possible to search for streams via stream title as of the moment I can only find my stream searching by my username and searching by the game I am streaming returns no results. How is anyone starting out expected to get any passing traffic.
    from reading other posts on the forum I believe having zero viewers is affecting the visibility of my stream is anyone else having these issues or is it just myself. But to sum things…

  2. Recommend Mixer Channels of Twitter Friends

    As you can already link/connect your Twitter account, let's take it a step further by checking against the list of Twitter accounts you follow and if they have a Mixer account.

    If new people you follow on Twitter or users once you connect Twitter have a Mixer account, a notification would come up that "You follow @Warblade on Twitter, want to follow their Mixer channel?"

  3. Compatibilidad con la pizarra interactiva en Windows10

    Windows 10 tiene una opcion exelente para streaming con mixer.
    Usando las teclas Windows+G.

    Me parece que podrian explotar eso aun mas si añaden la posibilidad de editar los botones de la pizarra interactiva.

    Desde agregar imágenes, sonidos, gif, vídeos, que se ejecuten en la transmisión con los botones de la pizarra, o crear efectos.
    hasta crear códigos mas personalizados para tus partidas.

  4. Remove Rebroadcasts as Live

    Streamers should not be allowed to rebroadcast previous content as Live. The whole concept of Mixer is to interact with viewers. Let's reward the streamers who are actually streaming!

    I just noticed that kwebbelkop is rebroadcasting 24/7. All he is doing is stealing views from "live" streamers, taking advantage of his Youtube celebrity status.

    Before anyone hates on this, I really enjoy kwebbelkop when he's live!

    Also, the entire chat is full of trolling, harassment and spam, since there is no moderation. Viewers are hosting and following him, instead of supporting live streamers. Most of the don't even realize that…

  5. rising star - smarter algorithm or catered content

    Currently it seems as though the rising star section is new users with 0 followers. It would be nice if there was more behind this, like some basic criteria for example, something in the About Me section, a nondefault picture, maybe even smarter than this like a certain percentage of growth within a certain time, or streaming frequency. Also using it to highlight games with less viewers could be good.

    I know this type of algorithm and potential machine learning can take a bit to perfect so in the mean time maybe some catered content goes in there. You have…

  9. Search by game should show streams that previously featured that game

    I'd like to find people who stream games I like, but there may be few or no people streaming it depending on the time of day. There should be a section below the people actively streaming that shows channels that have streamed the game recently (in the past two weeks or so).

  10. Up and Coming Page Suggestions

    I like the idea of the Up and Coming page, but feel it's being neglected or otherwise not as effective as it could be.

    1) I think the UaC page should feature a limited number of streams (12?). And these should get rotated out on an hourly basis (or some amount of time) and a new set of up and comers can get in.

    Currently, the page can be near infinitely scrolled down and people below the top 12 are not benefited by this unless someone is real bored and just scrolls and scrolls.

    2) As has been said before,…

  11. gametest titles

    I believe it would be great if you guys added in a game title like "Game in development" I was trying to stream hyperun and a couple of other pre-alpha games, and couldn't even put it into a correct discoverable search term.

  12. Hard to find missed streams?

    If you miss a stream it seems to be really hard to find.
    Is this service exclusively for live broadcasts?
    I tried searching for E3 Colliseum and gameslice with no hits
    I went to Youtube gaming site and immediately found.
    "E3 Coliseum - Project Scorpio..."

  13. Toggle Xbox Streamers

    With the huge influx of Xbox streamers can we please get a toggle option to filter them out of the lists? they are everywhere and just complexity spamming the lists.

  14. Tab For Streams That Are Beginning

    So I was ending my stream last night and wanted to carry on the stream to someone else, but the person I chose had been streaming for eight hours and were actually just ending. Whoops! It's always really cool to catch a stream that is just starting up and be there from the beginning, so could there be a tab that shows streams that are in the first 5-25 minutes? (right after setup and testing, but before really getting settled in to the flow)

  15. Have a category of broadcasts made by Windows 10

    Now with the new system to broadcast live through the Windows 10 game bar, it would be nice to have a category or option to watch streaming made with this feature

  16. Mouse Over Descriptions on Channel Thumbnails

    Not sure if this should go under Discovery or Interface, sorry. As a new Beam user, I'm finding it difficult to spot channels of interest to me because the search results don't provide channel descriptions.

    This is especially problematic for the miscellaneous non-game stuff, as well as offline channels.

    I'd suggest mousing over a channel's thumbnail in search results should bring up that channel's greeting/about text.

  17. On Browse Stream Page add a section for Hosts below the "live" People You Follow"

    At present the only way to know of a host occuring by people you follow is to be in the channel when the host is activated. A good idea, one that would benefit greatly those recieving the hosts, is to place a section below the "People You Follow" on the Browse Steam page. This would show people logging in onto Beam that someone you like to watch is supporting another Streamer with their fan base and exposing them to newer audiences.

  18. Add a VR category, game independent

    Add a VR category, game independent. It'd be really nice to be able to sift through all VR-streams, without having to pick any particular game

  19. Add a section for streams with no commentary

    Add a section for streams with no commentary.
    It be sweet if there was a category to find streamers who just stream gameplay without the commentary. Just to see their play style & the games story.
    I currently use YouTube for this but I'd rather use Beam.

  20. Suggestion or recommendation algorithm

    I don't know how you would go about making an algorithm for this, but one of the biggest problems I have when it comes to watching streams is that I just don't know what I'm looking for. I find a couple of streams I really like, but when they are not online, there's just a flood of random streams. It would be awesome if there was a feature that recommended new streams to me in much the same way that YouTube recommends new videos to me. That way I could at least get a general idea of streams I might…
