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!

Help us make Mixer better for everyone.

  1. Capability to modify bitrate on Mixer Xbox app for streaming.

    Currently when you stream to Mixer via your Xbox, you don't have control over your bitrate. Recently I tested the Twitch app on Xbox and was able to modify the bitrate to accomodate what worked best for my stream. Think this would be a great addition to have the capability to modify such thing on the Mixer App on Xbox. Even the stream resolution would be nice touch as well. The other options like mic and audio are already present. Here's what the options are from the other app.

  2. Help us better avoid stickers

    Currently we are able to enable/disable individual stickers. That's a good start, but the constant addition of new stickers lets these new stickers sneak into our channels because they are 'enabled' by default.

    My suggestion is to give us the option to flat out disable all stickers, including new ones, so that we don't have to constantly check for the existence of new stickers to disable before we go live.

  3. Mod Badge

    It would be nice if channel mods could have a badge by their name like subs do indicating that they are a mod. New users and mostly xbox users have no clue what the username colors mean.

  4. Smart Home Casting

    So, While being away from streaming myself for a few days I watched alot of mixer from my mobile device but this can become a hassle. I would turn my device horizontally to get a bigger picture but then had to turn it back vertically to chat. To make the experience better I would suggest that with technology moving into a wireless age, it would be nice to be able to cast the stream I am watching to a smart TV, or a device like chrome cast. For those who have smart TV's how quickly did you stop paying for…

  5. Xbox one integrated Stream overlays

    I would love for you guys to implement a feature that allows for the people who are currently stuck on console for streaming to have a couple simple stream overlays to use. Such as a face cam border and maybe a follower announce. This would be a great way to make console streams look a little sharper and these could easily be managed through the broadcast set-up, you could opt to have it on or off and just like chat overlay choose the position. This feature could be rolled out first for xbox insiders to test it and see if…

    Pro users and Partners will now have the ability to add images, overlays, text, and scene switching to their broadcasts on all of our platforms (including Xbox and Mixer Create) using Lightstream Studio!

    Read more about our partnership and how to get started here: https://blog.mixer.com/2018/04/11/enhance-your-mixer-streams-with-lightstream-studio/

    We hope to expand access to Lightstream to more users as we validate the stability and performance of the feature.

  6. Chat restrictions

    Having an option to put chat in follow, subscriber, or verified email only would be amazing to remove the trolls and tone down the harassment that is involved with streaming. Personally I have been attacked to the point of not streaming anymore and it’s sad because I have gained a terrible rep and lost what I thought were good friends because of this non stop harassment, mixer would greatly benefit having chat restrictions!! It’s a major help on streamers and mods or even streamers who don’t have mods.

  7. 24/7 Content

    Intentional 24/7 streams are appearing throughout directories (web show, IRL, other) In most cases no “streamer” is present. The streams are a .gif looping with sound. I recommend at a minimum making a new game category that is specifically labeled 24/7, to accommodate this content, or not placing these streams at the top of discovery.

  8. Season 2 - sparks and skills discourage engagement for non partners

    Season 2 - sparks and skills discourage engagement for non partners.

    If a viewer comes in and uses sparks for skills or interactive board for any non-partnered streamers they are now throwing away free currency they could spend on a partner channel.

    Sure I want viewers to interact with my stream and other non partners but why waste it on me when someone else could benefit? It's almost like burning money.

    What if non partners could use donated sparks on their to other channels (partner or not) so that original spark is not set a blaze and wasted.

    Maybe have…

  9. Filtering Games Out From Front-page

    I feel like there should be a filter option to remove certain games from the front-page so that it is easier to discover new streamers / games you wouldn’t really see. For example I would like the ability to hide fortnite and Pubg streams. I feel this would both benefit the viewer and streamer in terms of discovery.

  10. Minimum Suspension Times

    I propose that Mixer implement time spans on suspensions for rule-breaking in a similar fashion to other platforms with a minimum suspension of time of 24 hours.

    This will make it more clear cut on how long a user will be suspended at minimum for breaking Mixer's rules

    (I am aware some violations may require longer but feel this should be a minimum)

  11. Non partner user spark transfer

    It would be amazing if you made it so that users who aren't partners' sparks were transferable to that user when spending sparks on their channel. That way we could collect the sparks our friends spend on our channel and use them to donate to our favorite partners.

  12. SPARKS should be used for loyalty rather than supporting Partners

    I think it is VERY dissapointing for the new "Season 2" sparks to be used to add yet ANOTHER advantage to the partners. I LOVE my partnered streamers, and the ones that I sub too. However, all of these "improvements" seem to be geared toward them, and not the community. Game Purchases, Subscriptions, etc.. Mixer seems to be focusing on "sponsored" and "partnered" content, as opposed to the community as a whole (viewers, streamers, partners). I wish the sparks would have been used to benefit the loyal fans\viewers, and "small streamers" where we could use them in a "Sparks Store"…

  13. Email notification to include who our sub payment is for..

    Currently, when you subscribe to someone you get a receipt e-mail saying we were billed $5.99 for a Mixer subscription. It's very basic and doesn't include much information.

    I would prefer if on the receipt e-mail we receive if it showed the person's name to whom we subbed to.

  14. In-app donations

    Mixer really needs some kind of native donation tool like how Youtube has Super chats and twitch has bits.

    3rd party donation sites require viewers to leave the stream, which means they might miss something. They're also not as secure, people can chargeback paypal donations and put financial strain on the streamer. This is why many streamers aren't comfortable taking them.

    Plus, it encourages donations by allowing mixer to give small benefits to people who donate. Like how superchats let you pin a comment to the top of chat, or how bits give you a special chat badge.

    Finally it…

  15. Put Forza streamers back on the top streamers list

    Forza streamers should be on the top streamers list. Why are they not. They stream as well as anyone else, they put in the time and money, just like everyone else. You are taking people that might be interested in watching mixer and turning them away from forza. Stream viewers on many streams have gone down because people are not clicking on the stream to watch. Some forza streamers but in a whole lot of money for there stream like buying a rig and wheel setup that an cost hundreds of dollars. The least you could do is put them…

    Official watch mixer tournaments for Apex and hypezone featured games such as fortnite and pubg.

  18. Microsoft Funds

    Please allow us to use Microsoft funds for Subs, Embers, and Pro. Also allow and maybe restrict Streamer donations to Microsoft Funds, and put a stop to these Ridiculous chargebacks that some streamers see way to often.

  19. Enforce no IRL Streams while driving

    In light of current evens, I feel as a streaming service, Mixer should promote not live streaming while driving, This is dangerous not only for the streamer but Driver but other road users via taking the streamers attention away from the road to the chat.

    With this, I understand there is 2 sides, some people might stream what they see, almost like a dash cam and not interact with chat at all, or stream in such a way they cant see the chat.

    I just feel there should be something in ToS against this.

  20. Sparks and Charity streams

    What if when a partner does a charity stream they could allow people to use sparks as a way to donate to the charity? The partner could have a way to set it to a charity for a time period and all the sparks contributed go to the charity they are supporting.
