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. Chromebook Resolutions

    I wanted to note that the attached picture is how a normal Beam livestream looks on chromebooks set to their default resolution (1366x768) when the streamer has a soundboard set. It's ok, but I feel like it could be better! I thought I'd bring it up since this will be an increasingly common usecase for streaming as more public schools start rolling out Chromebook-based programs for all their students. (Also, shoutout to Prims! <3)

  2. VOD Sound Board Sounds

    We just launched a show tonight that depends heavily on audience participation through the Interactive Soundboard. We're kind of sad to see that the soundboard audio hasn't been baked into the VOD.

    If it's possible to change that, it'd be great!

  4. Resub Notifications

    It's very hard to keep up with the people who resub if you do not have the bot you use up 24/7 - is there anyway to incorporate an easier way to keep up with who resubs? Like perhaps in the partnership tab where you look at all the people who have subbed to you.

    I know it can say people have been subbed for a month, but that doesn't mean they have resubbed. Maybe add the day they resubbed.

    Hey Zae,

    We recently rolled out our new “Notification” feature, this will give you a notification when someone re-subscribes. Click the bell icon in the top right of the page to see your notifications.

    This should help you to see when a re-subscription has occurred.

    Thanks

  5. A lot of ppl don't consider mobile games, as gaming. But it really is. Have you ever played minecraft pocket edition?

    Mobile gaming is a thing now a days. Just look at the store. We have minecraft pocket edition, modern combat 5, all the fnaf, etc etc. I would love to stream or watch streams from these games. It would be amazing to see a mobile streaming option. Like mobcrush or should has.

  6. Beam Chat in Minecraft

    Add the ability to see chat from beam within Minecraft as well as chat back when streaming! I mean come on it's a feature for twitch streamers and twitch is owned by amazon! Beam is owned by microsoft and so is minecraft! I feel this should be a thing without having to rely on someone to make a mod! With Beam being part of big windows 10 update in march I am surprised it's not yet been announced as an addon feature for people who stream to beam playing minecraft using the soon to be built in streamer!

  7. team

    I first made this post on the forums but people avoid my posts like cancer for some reason. So I am sorry if this is not what I am supposed to do.

    I was wondering if there would be a way to showcase Teams more on the front page of Beam. The Beam community is the soul of this site and to show that love a bit more would be amazing.

    We could have Beam Teams VS other Beam teams for hours streamed, or Sparks gathered. A very friendly competition to show our love for teams here on Beam.

    I…

  8. 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)

  9. Relabel "Game You're Streaming" to "Category"

    I'll be surprised if this one gets many votes, but it took me a while when I first started streaming to realize that "Game You're Streaming" under "Manage Channel" dictates where you show up in "Browse Streams".

    I wish Beam showed non-game streams like talk shows, live reading, art, and whatnot a lot more love.

  12. Team Page Chat

    It would be great if the chat room of whichever Team Member is currently streaming to a Team Page could also be available within the Team Page.

    Not being able to interact with team member channels from the aggregator page kind of hampers the experience.

  14. Allow the use of xsplit game caster

    I think you should allow the use of Xsplit gamecaster instead of only allowing xsplit broadcaster.

  16. Unicode chat support

    Beam chat only support english based chat not CJK unicode.
    Yes, this will be uninterest topic in beam community.
    But think carefully.
    There is tons of streamer and viewer in far east asia who couldn't type there language in BEAM chat system.

  19. Is it possible to make an embed code that would show the channels we are hosting on our channel?

    Is it possible to make an embed code that would show the channels we are hosting on our channel? This way every time we wanted to change the stream on our homepage GamingLyfe.com, all we would need to do is open our beam app on the phone and host a different channel! Right now every time we want to show something different we have to log into the website and add code "feels bad man" :(

    Here is the thread on the dev forums!

    It would be nice to have an Extra Life category so this way people can find extra life streamers easier.
