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. Catch up button

    Have a button under the stream that after X amount of second delay has been reached it would reload the stream and not the entire page in hopes that the person with the delay can catch up.

  2. Spark Section

    I tried to search for this suggestion but I wasn't able to find something similar to my idea. At the top of the Streamers section you can currently sort by: All Streamers, Rising Stars, New Streamers, and Stream Teams. I feel it would be a great idea to add a section called Electric Streamers or something catchy and in that section, the streamers an be listed by how many sparks have been spent in their channel. This would allow people who are looking for more interactive streams can find the ones with the most action. Currently I haven't been noticing…

  3. Get rid of all the unnecessary scripting

    I allowed every script I could find and still couldn't use half the buttons on my own channel page. It was a total mess trying to use the page, definitely something twitch doesn't have (which is the obvious comparison and competitor). For example I clicked setup stream and couldn't click any X or other buttons, I couldn't get the popup window/page/thing to close or anything. I also couldn't look for streams I was interested in (tried to search for speedruns or specific retrogames).

  4. Have a category of broadcasts made by Windows 10

    Now with the new system to broadcast live through the Windows 10 game bar, it would be nice to have a category or option to watch streaming made with this feature

  5. Abiity to integrate Xbox party member's cameras to broadcast together on single stream

    I want the ability to have my party members send their camera footage of them playing to my broadcast. This ability will help with games such as Sea of Thieves, Destiny, Halo, etc... where channel viewers can understand the group of people playing the game. Each player would have to volunteer to send their broadcast to my stream and I would have to accept it. I would (as party/stream leader) be able to designate where on the broadcast that viewers footage would go (similar to how a single person would do it).

  6. Being able to browse the site while the video is still running

    It would be interesting to have to continue navigating the site and the video continues to run and showing (getting a thumbnail and in the corner of the screen)

  7. Mouse Over Descriptions on Channel Thumbnails

    Not sure if this should go under Discovery or Interface, sorry. As a new Beam user, I'm finding it difficult to spot channels of interest to me because the search results don't provide channel descriptions.

    This is especially problematic for the miscellaneous non-game stuff, as well as offline channels.

    I'd suggest mousing over a channel's thumbnail in search results should bring up that channel's greeting/about text.

  8. Added Features to Beam Bot

    Currently there is a lot of functionality that we need a 3rd party bot for. I know this isn't specific, but couldn't a lot of this functionality be built into the Native Beam Bot?

    i.e. Custom Commands, Timed Commands, etc...

  9. Confirmation for High Cost Interactive Buttons

    Can we get an opt-in style confirmation for when we're spending more than say, 1,000 sparks? There was a time about a month ago that I was browsing someone's stream when they had interactive on, and I clicked back on to the main window to get the focus, and it just so happened to be on the board, so I erroneously spent 5K sparks...

  10. Xbox Avatar partner hoodies

    As part of the integration with Xbox, I was thinking that partners could also get a Beam hoodie for their Xbox Live avatars.

  11. Channel specific currency for Interactive events

    A customizable currency unique to each channel.

    Example: Let's say I have an interactive game that has its own economy. I want to be able to freely control balancing that economy around a currency I control. Being able to grant and remove funds based on game events, subscriber status, etc without worrying about Sparks influencing my economy.

    An argument can be made that developer could simply implement their currency on the game side; personally I don't think that doesn't lend itself to a good user experience. Users would have to use a chatbot to query their inventory state, making the…

  13. ADD Xbox app account intergration (Add to friends list)

    When the xbox app gets developed/released, A feature should be intergrated so that if the user that you're watching is playing xbox you should be able to show there Linked Xbox ID so they can easily be added from the app without having to leave the app to add them.

  14. Premium from Streamer Subscription

    It'd be great if subscribing to a streamer would give you few days of Premium since presumably Beam takes a cut from those subs. It'd be extra nice if they added up from multiple subscriptions.

  15. Live Level/Sparks Update

    I've noticed one has to refresh the page or open Beam in a new tab to see one's actual EXP, Level, and Sparks counters. Could that become a rolling live update?

  16. Host/Tweet out buttons

    I think there should be a host button and twitter button to tweet out streams from mobile. I usually have beam playing while I work and listen to streamers as a radio while I work. It would be nice to see these buttons so we can show support from the mobile platform. (Andriod App user)

  18. Floating Player

    Beam should add the Floating Player so that you can watch your current stream while browsing other streams

  19. 'Replay' button

    A button that allows a user to go back 10-30 seconds in the a stream to re-view past moments/catch details. Preferably this would also have a built-in record button that grabs a .gif/video of set length from the 10-30 second period.
