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. Total the users for specific chat types

    In the chat show viewers thing, please add the number of viewers per chat group next to it.

    Example:

    Viewers [73]
    Pro Viewers [4]
    Moderators [6]

    Etc...

  2. Stream channel name in browser tab

    It would be great so that when in Chrome or any other browser, my page tabs of Beam show the name of the channel I'm watching. As you can see from the attached screenshot, I can clearly see who I'm watching on Twitch but not on Beam (on the same person's channel for both platforms). This wouldbe a nice additional feature of the UI

  3. Ability to Rearrange Teams Display

    A Small little feature but would be cool: The ability to change the order in which the Teams are displayed on your channel.

    For example, I could move the Beam Crates Team (Love Heart Logo) to the center (See attachment)

    Maybe this feature could be added with the addition of more team slots unlockable via Sparks <3

  4. Can we get voter totals back on polls?

    It is great being able to see the % of people in each category but when we do polls where the number of voters matter it forces us to use outside sites to do the poll. I would like to see the option to at least see numbers instead of %.

  6. Jackbox Games as "Interactive"

    While there is no direct developer interaction between Jackbox Games and Beam (though... with the microsoft acquisition maybe there can be) it would be nice to be able to show up on the list of "Interactive" streams anytime someone is playing this. The games themselves are played by the viewers when streamed.

    Essentially, whenever someone is playing one of the Jackbox Games that allows for web play they will be listed as interactive.

    These games include
    Jackbox Party Pack
    Jackbox Party Pack 2
    Jackbox Party Pack 3 (coming this fall)
    Quiplash
    Drawful 2
    Fibbage
    ETC...

  7. Back button restoring your position on the Browse page

    When browsing streams on the Browse page, after clicking on a stream, if you decide to go back to the Browse page using the Back button, you're put back at the top of the page. I would like to see the Back button put you back at the location of the stream you were just watching.

  8. Kill stream remotely

    Grant us the ability to kill the stream remotely.

    If something goes wrong with your interactive stream but you are not next to the host computer and are unable to remote in, you might want to kill the stream and have it start hosting someone else so that viewers aren't wasting their time.

    [Last week, someone spammed a few keys, which stopped my script from taking any inputs; I then had to wait a few hours to get home in order to resolve it as my remote tools were not working.]

  9. Make the network tab look more like the stream browsing page.

    Currently the network doesn't tell us what game a given person is playing or their stream title. Attached is a sample card mockup, excuse the terrible art skills.

  10. meta tags

    Adding new meta property tags added to the page header

    So what I noticed coming from Twitch is that when you post links via Facebook or Discord, it grabs certain meta tags within the header section and includes those as the description. It's likely using the tags listed below.

    <meta content='WarbladeX - Twitch' property='og:title'>
    <meta content='https://www.twitch.tv/warbladex'; property='og:url'>
    <meta content='Ready and playing some Battlefield 1 Closed Alpha!' property='og:description'>
    <meta content='https://static-cdn.jtvnw.net/jtv_user_pictures/warbladex-profile_image-1e696000d6bd5c71-300x300.jpeg'; property='og:image'>

    When posting a Beam profile link into Facebook or Discord, it puts very standard info about Beam and a generic image, but it would be great…

  11. Revise :3 emote?

    Perhaps the :3 emote could make a face rather than a whole cat? As it is now, it makes me avoid using it since it has pretty much no applications. D:

    Besides, I think the majority of folk use it for a face rather than an entire cat. >u<

  12. Fix the Hamster Emote

    I didn't know where else to put this but can you fix the hamster emote? It's been fuzzy forever and it didn't use to be.

    I mean the hamsters work so hard powering beam, at least they emote should look good again

  13. restream

    When using Restream.io to broadcast on multiple platforms, a bitrate higher than 3500 can't be used or it just doesn't work.

    I recommend adding guide or pop-up prompt that explains that.

    I've spent three days trying to figure out why it wasn't working. It will save others a lot of headache to know they've just got to bring it down to 3500. =)

  14. Add a let's illustrate or Let's Design section for art!

    As a graphic designer and illustrator I feel like there should be a bit more specific channel options like "Let's Illustrate" and "Let's Design!" as it seems there is currently no place for graphic design.

    As for the illustration vs. drawing, I feel that illustration explains more what we do as artists, the process of thinking, the process of going from sketch to final product, it's not just a drawing, it's an illustration that shows and tells a story!

    Thank you for reading!

  16. toggle for smiles

    One of my mods is allergic to the smiles that beam uses, so he banned any message that has them.

    Can we get a channel toggle to disable this so plain-text smiles are displayed instead?

  17. Console Apps

    I think it would be neat if you guys started developing a XBOX and PS4 Application, so console users can enjoy watching Beam Streams! I think it would be helpful because that is a whole untapped audience just waiting for you guys to give access to your awesome Platform, I am sure it is possible and would help streamers and the website get even more traffic!

  19. More interactive controls

    Currently we have 3 real control methods, "Click on screen", "Joystick" and "Button".

    1. Multi-stop Lever. My inspiration for the design of this would be similar to this image: http://images.neopets.com/space/leverofdoom.gif but in a Beam art style. It would have two modes "stops" or "linear".

    Linear: The lever can be moved up and down and will return (via the API) a value between 0 (completely down) or 1 (completely up). There would be two shortcuts (programmable) which would enable the user to move it up or move it down, or they could just drag it!

    Stops: The lever will snap between…
