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. The teams working on Mixer regularly review the ideas and incorporate them into product planning discussions. While we can’t guarantee any specific features or timelines, we will read all suggestions, and we may also merge and rename suggestions for clarity.

Thanks for helping us to improve Mixer!

  1. Favourite Option

    I think a ''favourite option'' to pin our favourite streamers to the top of our followed streamers could work well.. I'd love to support and follow everyone but also be able to find my favourite streamers quickly.

  3. Gamifying for gamers

    You have XP for leveling up, how about some items?!

    To encourage watching streams, how about giving users/viewers a series of items to unlock and collect, items are reminiscent of favorites from the last 30+ years of gaming.

    It will work similar to Sparks but items will be distributed at random and not at a set time duration, the better the item, the more rare it is that it will drop.

    Every user will have a Backpack that will serve as the inventory for all the items.

    Users can trade items with each other or sell/buy them for Sparks, another…

  4. New Follower Email

    I think it would be cool if we could get an email when someone new follows the channel.

    Also a weekly digest that shows how we performed that week in comparison to the previous week, i.e:

    You gained 5 followers and streamed for 24 hours compared to last week where you got 1 follower and streamed for 2 hours.

  5. Buying Sparks

    I feel there should be a way to buy sparks with real world money. I do not know how or if they would be implemented like a spark system on twitch. But I feel we should have more of a variety of how we would like to support beam. I am all for subbing and being pro but just adding another thing to show our love would be awesome to see!! Also we get sparks to use in interactive win win for both!

  6. Mature + | 18+ too lewd filter Idea

    So I'm a 18+ streamer, and not in the terms of nudity, showing my cleavage, attempt to be directly to anyone, or acting like a object.. I barely play games with in them tbh.. I'm almost always in a whitemage cape and layers of clothes to match LOL

    Some may see the joke "future filters might be (family/teen/mature/IKA)" This started to float around cause my stream is just out there, those who watch enjoy the laid back free talk, laughs, and open mouthed Ika not afraid to speak real and joke about lewd stuff... Or I am just so naturally…

  7. Allow streamers to give away there sparks in stream giveaways.

    Allow streamers to use their spark balance as a giveaway feature.

    For Example:
    I have 68.4k Sparks, I want to get rid of some by giving them away to viewers in my channel. So therefore I can host a giveaway then do a command like /send {Username} [Amount of Sparks]

  8. Add a Fitness Gaming Channel

    I like to lift weights while I am gaming. I have a gaming fitness talk show where I play Overwatch and also talk about how to get in shape while gaming. Specifically, I do weight lifting and talk about the fundamentals of building muscle and burning fat.

    Would it be possible to add a new channel type "Fitness" where we can stream our workouts and optionally stream games while in there?

  9. More analytics, Engagement and Retention.

    I'd like to see how long the average viewer stays tuned in. You can call this "Audience Retention".

    I'd also like analytics for Audience Engagement, which would be comprised of the percentage of audience who use interactive controls or chat.

    For example:

    Last 24 HRS:
    Audience Retention: 3hrs 23minutes
    Engagement: 37.2%

    or something like that

  10. 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…

  11. Needs more Pokemon Go

    Would be cool if Pokemon Go Teams and an interactive channel that plays it could be added similar to Agar.io and YouPlay

  13. URL Linking

    Would like to see URL links in places like Twitter, Instagram, Discord, etc show the current Stream/Game Name, instead of basic profile information of the streamer.

  14. Sort network tab by online channels

    I think it would be beneficial to sort the network tab following by who is online. The only channel I follow which is live is Monstercat and I have to scroll to see that. It would be better if it sorted by online status as a priority :)

  16. control tutorial for new people

    I know this seems weird, but I've had tons of people come to YouPlay and ask how they control the game.

    For people who have never used interactive before, I think there should be some sort of highlighted overlay over the controls telling them to press the buttons to interact. It would disappear once clicked over, and never show again.

    For mobile, the interactive button should be highlighted (maybe even flashing/pulsing) until it is activated at least once.

  17. Add a "friends only" option for hosting

    Along with the custom onHost text, we should have an option to only display a message if the hoster is someone you follow. That way people can't spam hosts to get attention in chat.

  18. Variable font sizes

    In chat especially, It would be nice If we could vary the font size, maybe a few choices of font. I have Glaucoma, and sometimes if the font was just a little bit bigger...my eyes would thank you all...:)

  20. active player count

    I'd like the active player count (as seen on front page streams) to be on the channel as well, next to the viewer count.
