I would love a dedicated UWP app for this. I'm less concerned for it's integration into Xbox since it's already dedicated but use for laptop/desktop would be quite beneficial. Sometimes I just like to have things through the UWP rather than the site.
At the very least, I think this could be used for every ANNUAL purchased or consecutive GOLD years, etc. There are options here and I came to post nearly this exact same idea.
You could also combine with the comment requesting Mixer Pro.
This is a service and it has to make money I'm sure, so incentivizing it with loyalty is smart and also helps cross promote it. I'm ok with 1 free monthly sub and 1 free month of beam pro for every annual. You could likely couple this with other incentives like "Purchase X games with Gold this month and receive another free sub" etc so they stack and you could give back to the community, inviting more purchasing of subs for both Beam Pro and the content creators.
I would like to offer an alternative to your idea. I think it sucks that your friend would reject the benefits of getting more viewership for some jerks with social ineptitude. I would instead interject the proper solution is when streamers go into the "Featured" section (whether on Mixer or Xbox) that GOLD mods enter and assist in throwing out the garbage. This sets a great and positive message, and people like your friend can continue to enjoy the benefits of the positive and the scrubs get rekt.
I would suggest that it be "Xbox Follow" button (though this might be confusing). To say they are "Friends" would send the wrong message to a few who might believe it will be "Follow for Follow", etc. See this query often in streams where those asking are also looking to be friended back. Xbox One is more of a "follow" than "friend" now days. If that can get sorted, I like the idea of local integration of that process, presuming the streamer has entered that information on their main page.
There are some performance and UI concerns we’re working through, but absolutely investigating this. We know this is important.
Could exist on a PAGE within the stream itself. When entering a stream, you would be presented with the page that contained the Description and rules. You could 'RB' over to now see the chat.
If you have a room "Followed"/"Subbed", it would place you within the Stream page FIRST. This incentivizes the want to follow but also means the first time you are placed on the rules page (if a stream has them) and normalizes situations where PC members just don't know the fact that currently Xbox Streamers see none of this... and ban them without informing. Now they would at least be informed.
Difficulties: Would this require text in this field vs images as some utilize. Unknown.

You're asking for segregation of the community which seems like counter to the Beam ideal.
Why not something that meets in the middle...
Xbox App does not currently show the streamer the title of the channel until after they enter, but by then they already have questions and have a less direct method to chat so they don't generally even know where that info is located. They do not see the descriptions in the room like other participants on PC.
I believe this is a fault of both sides, streamers and viewers. We can ask viewers to look at the info by teaching them (we know they're new, treat them like you would a new PC person.) Inversely, we can also perhaps take a minute to either boot up our own Xbox Ones or ask those who are on Xbox to explain their experience because they are absolutely NOT similar.
This produces much better results than segregation.
Sometimes I want to use the app in the same way I used Snap. While the Snap feature was poorly advertised, I feel the quickly "going to the store for a moment" on the Dashboard means we still want to hear what's happening. It could also be good to utilize and still chat while playing your own games or cross streaming with Partners.
Related Suggestion: If an account is bound to the Xbox, perhaps you can have a "canned response" for going live? Similar to the other options such as "follower" and "sub". Perhaps those settings can be set to auto populate a club/feed of your choosing, presuming you can post in that channel to begin with.
I get this on my app. Either they have added it or there's an issue on the other end. It ends up sounding like a "swish" sound on my Xbox App. Did you perhaps mean a 'toast' sound of some kind?
