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. emoticons

    To show all of your current subscriptions emoticons so you know which ones you have available and can quick select them in other chats.

    Also good if you don't auto re-sub and are unsure if the emote is still available to you.

  2. Fix audio reset when hosting

    Whenever I have a stream muted/paused in the background and someone hosts, the volume will reset to full on the new stream.

    Maybe have the volume setting carry over or have hosted channels muted by default for people that like to watch streams as they go to bed

  3. An option to spend sparks on highlighting comments for the streamers to see more easily

    Sometimes when I agree with an idea I want the streamer to see it but if I say the same thing it will just flood the chat and won't provide credit to the originator of the idea. What if we could spend sparks to highlight comments for the streamers to more easily see? I think that would be cool.

  4. Global Lurk Toggle

    There should be a global toggle for Lurk Mode, so people who lurk often don't have to turn on Lurk Mode every single time they join the stream.

  6. Deleted messages idea

    Have messages that been purged by moderators so on the caster side, they see it as <message deleted> or blacked out instead of the strikethrough. Make it so that the caster has a choice to look at it or not to see what has been deleted under their own discretion if it's a spoiler or something malicious.

  7. forums needs an edit post button

    the forums here need an edit post button. to fix spelling errors, add new ideas to the original post, etc...
    (only OP (and mods) can edit thier own posts/comments)

    ..wondering why this isn't already possible..

  8. Use franchises to create "hubs", instead of using individual games to organize and display Beam game list

    There are many games that have some sort of expansion or new sequel or even old version of the game. Sometimes I have even seen games with same name displayed as if it was two different "Games" here on Beam.

    So my idea is to make Beam better than the "Twitch way", where sometimes I got to see: Aion, Aion: Assault on Balaurea, Aion: Dark Betrayal, Aion: Upheaval.
    And even if all channels were on the same latest expansion/Version, they were all scattered around with different names because the streamer didn't bother to update the game.
    So I always wished…

  9. I think it would be cool if you shouted out streams. It will give people more incentive to watch, and it will help Beam grow.

  10. Developer-Controlled Confetti

    It would be fantastic to have an API endpoint (or a chat packet, or... something) to deploy confetti on your own stream, for custom events and such. ;)

  11. Identify Chatter vs Watcher

    With the new viewer counting system, it would be cool if the "Chatters" list showed a flag by those who are included in the "Watchers" count. If you also had a count of "Lurker" and not logged in viewers, there would be transparency between the various numbers.

  12. Mature Content

    I am a Mod from Outpost (Go check out channel if you haven't) I have been told by staff that if you stream a game that has gore and violence + swearing that you must turn your stream to 18+. This I think should be up to the user that they have the responsibility to leave. There should also be like a 17+ or 15+ rating instead.

  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.

  15. sub anniversary event

    I was wondering if we could possibly add the option to not share a sub anniversary. I don't mind that there is a nice little reminder of how many months I've been subscribed to someone, however I'm not overly fond of having to "brag" about it for the notification to go away.

  16. 'Post-it' in chat.

    Can you make a 'post-it' message in the chat? (see attached file)
    I guess this will be a good way to communicate an info as a "permanent post-it" (it will shows despite the stream is offline) or till the streamer change it.

    I brought this up before but after listening to this mental health panel at Twitchcon with almost every single big person advocating to not pay attention to your numbers i felt like i wanted to push for it more and hope that it would get more traction this time around. I agree wholeheartedly before i suggested that we get it as an option to maintain the mental stability that many streamers big and small have . So that there is no confusion i am simply asking to have the option to turn off and not have your viewers show in…

  18. adding launcher support

    Adding launcher support: I had a friend mentioning it would be nice to add launcher support (curse, steam, etc.) so that when you log into a game via the launcher, it automatically updates your setgame command for your stream.

  19. interactive "VIEW/EDIT" json dialog

    Ability to edit raw json in the interactive design page. The interactive editor is super laggy, even with only 1 item created and placing it .. its just very sluggish. Would be nice to click view json and have it display an editable dialog vs read-only dialog.

  20. Search By Channel Audience

    I would love a way to sort by audience. That way, I can look specifically for 'family friendly,' 'teen,' or 'mature' audiences and follow a few of each. Then, I can know who to raid safely on my channel's ideals.
