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. Beam Pro exclusive emotes

    Having global emotes that are exclusive to Beam Pro users. Maybe faces of other staff members or Beam branded emotes? Would be nice additional incentive to become a pro user and more fun things to spam in chats!

  2. Would there ever be an option to donate sparks between users within the Beam community?

    I think one suggestion would be an option to donate sparks with viewers, streamers, and friends to use on the soundboards and things like that

  3. Host and toggle controls back under the stream window

    I much preferred the host and toggle controls under the stream window over where they are now under the social buttons.

    Now that Legacy Beam is no more I would love to see those buttons moved back.

  4. Save streaming

    I would like to see the streams saved for watching back at a later date. I'm in an F1 league and we stream then the other players watch the stream back that would be a great addition. Save our streams? TED1ST.

  5. donation charge backs

    As most of us know Twitch has an system currency which helps protect it's broadcasters from charge backs with Paypal and allows them to focus on Content and not worrying about finances. Beam has the awesome Spark system already, for interaction but it would be nice to have a Beam specific currency which protects the broadcaster from dealing with charge backs.

  8. Deleting messages in chat removes chat for the streamer

    Recently i have discovered: If a mod removes a message the streamers chat will often disappear, leaving the streamer confused and unable to read the chat, which can ruin streams on many occasions. Has anyone else witnessed this, and is there way of fixing the chat to disable this from happening.

  9. Have something similar to YouTube introduction videos for streamers

    So it was particularly popular at one stage to find a somewhat pinned video on someone's YouTube channel (sometimes called introductory videos). It still occurs today but the nature of YouTube has resulted in people "pinning" a video with a lot of views, or they want to promote a video... Livestreaming however is different. If you limit the time for the intro video, people won't be able to upload a whole stream, they can upload a snippet of a stream, but that is their choice.

    If it is to be used properly we could see videos with a physical introduction…

  10. Mobile app feedback

    Hello, just wanted to send some feedback for the app.

    I like most of the app, but I've noticed some things that may affect user satisfaction when using it. First, when replaying VOD's on the app, the user can't just stop the VOD to choose another one. They also can't just stop it in general. They are required to go to the homepage and swipe the video left to close it, then return to the streamers page to choose another VOD to watch.

    This ties (somewhat) into my second feedback: users who are signed into the app cannot simply access…

  11. @(Beam Name)

    When I type in "@(beam name)" there are not suggested user options. I have to remember the exact spelling of these unique Beam names to "@" them. Can we get a recommendation feature to help us autofill the person we are trying to speak to?

  12. Scrollbars on Firefox

    Chrome users got nice transparent scrollbars. It would be great to see them also on Firefox.

  13. Beam to automatically check connection for FTL stream after failing over to HLS

    When the FTL stream connection is lost and it drops down to HLS, Beam should periodically, automatically, retry to connect to FTL.

  14. chat box

    Hey Beam!

    So one thing I run into on stream is that I talk to those that are in the chat, but those in my xbox party can't tell if I'm talking to them or the stream. One solution I've considered would be to allow people in my party to gain access to my chat box and overlay it onto their screen as it appears on mine while I stream. That way we can all experience the chat together! Just a thought! Thank you for making such an awesome platform!

  15. Make it possible to share projects with other users in the new interactive studio

    In the old "Developer Lab" it was possible to share games (now known as projects) with other users so that they can edit them.

    Please make this possible again.

    Thank you

  16. Stream from you phone

    I want to bring chat out on IRL adventures!
    Streaming with my mobile camera would be perfect! And the ability for FTL streaming IRL would give creators an epic LIVE adventure possibility.

  17. Browse Section for 'Most Shocking' (Most sparks spent in their channel)

    I'd like to see a section on the Browse streamers page that is dedicated to ordering streamers based on how many sparks have been recently spent in their channel. So 10k sparks have been spent in streamer A's channel and 9555 sparks are in streamer B's channel. On that list, while they are live, streamer A would be at the top of the list sort of like the featured section. You get what I'm saying.

  19. I Gave Beam my Honest Feedback

    i gave my honest feedback to beam and Now just right shortly after my chat doesn't seem to want to load for me. i would suggest that Beam sends out notifications to followers and to subs that pay out money to support a streamer. There is some many sites out there that send subscribers and followers notifications for whatever reason, youtube and twitch just to name 2 of the endless sites that manage to do so. When i have sent in a "ticket" about this to Beam they say it's being fixed but, it's been being fixed for well over…

  20. Timer/Stopwatch

    Beam should have a Timer/Stopwatch feature in order to allow speedrunners to get involved more in the platform. The time should be visible on screen to viewers so they too can keep track of current goals
