  1. Mix it Up button

    Mix It Up button.

    This could be a fun new way to discover new and random streamers across Mixer. A simple button that sends you to a random stream (in your rating group)? Like the stream? Stay and interact! Not for you? Hit Mix It Up again!

    Could have a fun animation, that encourages people to Mix It Up!

    Super simple but fun concept.

    • Filter Search for channels under Mature/Teen/etc

      I would LOVE to be able to SEARCH with filters like... Mature Streams ONLY (sorry some of us just cant NOT say Fck and lewd comments and I'd like to stay where I am more appropriate) I mean I get you have a Mature pop up but the last thing I wanna do is pop in every channel that looks like a win for me, only to NOT see it, and have to either filter myself or go back and try again...

      Might as well consider Teen and Family filters too :D

      Thnx for your Time,
      Ika

      • Add the ability to filter the browse page by language

        Add a flag or other way to identify country to the origin of the stream or chosen language, so the browse page can be filtered by language.

        • Improve front page discovery and rotation

          Since the acquisition from Microsoft, the YouPlay channel has kind of blown up. Its now to the proportions where pretty much every channel cannot catch it.

          What I feel would be nice is that YouPlay should only be on the front page if no other Interactive streams are live.

          I used to like going to the front page and seeing it switch up nicely between different casters but now its monopolized by the YouPlay channel. Dont get me wrong I have nothing against the channel but it would be nice to give other casters a chance to be on the…

            We’ve made significant strides on this front with Beam 2. The ability to feature multiple channels, mature streams, and highlight specific events on the home page are big jumps, but we still have more to do.

            In the future, you’ll see the home page stream automatically rotate over time, to prevent any one streamer from getting stuck on the top of the browse page. This will allow more new streamers to be featured, and give even more opportunity for unique and awesome content to get some time in the spotlight. I’ll keep you posted.

          • Search for more than a channel.

            The ability to search on a more global level, like Stream titles and game titles. Right now when you search on the homepage it is only by the channel (user) name. The ability to have it filter the game and stream title would be nice.

            • Front Page - Automated/Manual/Scheduled Streamer Picks

              Featuring on the Front Page is a joy and a privilege. It should definitely feel that way! But, those given that honor should also be responsible for representing Beam.Pro in a positive way.

              I propose an opt-in system where users must read, understand, and accept certain quality content standards in order to be elgible for representation on the front page. Once accepted their channel is placed into an automated rotation. Streamers should be notified in someway of their being highlighted so they can be sure to abide by the agreement they submitted themselves to for that honor.

              Manual over-ride. On…

              • Pro users get a site notification for new features to try out

                When ever a new feature is added and only pro users have access to it, said Pro Users should get a notification saying what it is so that they can find it and try it out easily and quickly rather than finding things at random

                • Sub Categories

                  Most Categories do not need this but there are a few categories that it would be nice to have a sub category for. I do game development and design some times and don't want to just have design as the game. It would be cool if you could set a sub game category. This could be useful for gaming streams as well. If you are playing competitive cs go you would have a different feeling from non competitive or being able to add interactive as a sub category or join-able would all be nice things to add to the end…

                  • Press button to watch random stream!

                    Add a "Watch Random Stream" button! Love the feature on Crunchyroll for discovering new anime. It'd be great for discovery on Beam!

                    • Add a section for streams with no commentary

                      Add a section for streams with no commentary.
                      It be sweet if there was a category to find streamers who just stream gameplay without the commentary. Just to see their play style & the games story.
                      I currently use YouTube for this but I'd rather use Beam.

                      • Favorites list for Games/Categories

                        A "favorites" list for games would be really cool. It would make it easier to find awesome streamers in the games you enjoy. This would really help smaller streamers. Searching down through the games is tedious if not many people are watching the particular category. I made an example for it. It might also help to make them searchable. Just an idea! #mixerlove <3

                        • Display followed streamers in browse page

                          Just a thought/feature or idk.

                          Personally I would like to see streamers I follow shown not only at the top (current area) but also mixed in where the other streams are. I think it could be cool to see how these streams rank/match up to others instead of having to scroll up and down sometimes to see where somewhere would be.

                            • Tags/Filters to find or display games. (just like LFG Xbox feature but of course for Beam games)

                              Like the title says, it would nice to be able to find games based on our tags.

                              For example:
                              The streamer can add "no mic" "no cam" to the tags, so if people are interested in a stream with that, they will know what channel/tag not to search and click on.

                              It could also help to know what kind of interactive stream channels are using, from just soundboard to interactive automated buttons or co-op or something like that.

                              Also streamers can add the "no swearing" tag so people know those channels will be okay if they don't like so much…

                              • Recent VoDs accessible from the front page

                                If you just missed a stream, it's difficult to reach the vod of that stream from the front page. A potential solution would be to include a tab on the main index page (similar to the New Streamers tab) for vods from streams that have ended in the last 24-48 hours. Even if it's restricted to channels you follow, this would make it easier to catch up on missed streams, and wouldn't necessitate doing a search on the main page (or the network tab of the account screen) for a given channel just to access their vods.

                                • Tag and Search Options for Language

                                  My suggestion is the ability in your stream settings to Tag your stream in languages you speak, accompanied by the ability to specifically search for the language you want to watch in. This will encourage new and old users alike to find new people that they didn't realize spoke their native language and also encourage streamers to use a language they may know but originally did not get them any viewers. =)

                                  • Alphabetic Game List Order

                                    I'm not sure if this has been requested already, but wasn't able to find anything.
                                    Could we get a game order option to be Alphabetical instead of by view count?
                                    Something like an icon A >Z and then an "eye" to switch between the orders.

                                    Thanks.

                                    • 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

                                      • Toggle Xbox Streamers

                                        With the huge influx of Xbox streamers can we please get a toggle option to filter them out of the lists? they are everywhere and just complexity spamming the lists.

                                        • On Browse Stream Page add a section for Hosts below the "live" People You Follow"

                                          At present the only way to know of a host occuring by people you follow is to be in the channel when the host is activated. A good idea, one that would benefit greatly those recieving the hosts, is to place a section below the "People You Follow" on the Browse Steam page. This would show people logging in onto Beam that someone you like to watch is supporting another Streamer with their fan base and exposing them to newer audiences.
