  1. Mature Stream Tab / Toggle Option

    Beam has been "marked" as a Family Friendly platform since the beginning where everyone is welcome to join any stream without having to worry about vulgar language.

    However this puts a huge set back to streamers who do not want to be inserted in that "Family Friendly" category. This ends up undermining/devaluing streamers who want to be more relaxed and true to themselves without having to worry about language, sarcasm, etc.

    With this, I suggest a "Mature" tab to be implemented at the top, next to Featured/ All Streamers / Up and Coming / Following / Teams OR a toggle…

    • Auto host when offline

      I want to be able to specify which streamers to automatically host when my channel goes offline, in order of which I want it to attempt to host.

      This is useful for retaining audience on 24/7 streams, when having technical difficulties.

      • Clip/Highlight staight from live stream

        Ever have that amazing moment or a complete disaster in a game?! Well dont worry you and your chat can relive the moment over and over by clipping it straight from the live stream. Basically last 30seconds or min of live stream saves and allows you to save it as GIF or short Clip on your account or bean data base

        • Co-streaming as a viewer

          Costreaming is an amazing idea, but it could definitely be improved by putting the audience in charge of their personal screen sizes and positioning. Relying on the costream host to pick a layout for the best of all of us is not a great idea. It would be much better if we could choose our own viewing method for the costream that didn't affect anyone else.

              Followers that are hosting channels will now show up under the new following tab on the browse page as offline. Clicking their channel will allow you to see the host!

              I’ve marked this as started because this obviously isn’t ideal UX, but in the future you’ll be able to see more detail about the hosted channel right in the browse experience, and I’d love to get this more tightly integrated into the primary browse view instead of needing to use a tab.

            • Integrate Skype translator into channel streams for foreign streamers

              The real time translation in Skype would be awesome for streams by people from other countries, for example on that other streaming network I watch this artist from Mexico and love the work she does but she talks really fast in Spanish and sometimes in broken English but Skype's tech could do it and you're part of the MS fam now so they should be open to it.

              • Change game without ending stream on the app

                I would love to see the feature of being able to change game without ending the stream (uptime reasons).

                This would be amazing due to the fact some streamers exclusively use the app on the Xbox.

                • Hide stream from the browse page

                  Add an ability to hide one's stream from the "browse" page (gotten to by scrolling down on the front page of the beam site). Random people keep trying to join our Jackbox games when we're streaming specifically for our friend group only, so being able to prevent that would be nice.

                  Tl;dr implement a "Private stream" feature, that only people with the link can access.

                  • Games Page

                    Need a page that lists all games so that we can easily find a game we want to watch. Then when we click on a game it should take us to a list of streamers that are playing it.

                    • Adding Poker and games of Chance/Strategy to the Allowed Games list

                      Will there ever be a chance for streamers to stream Poker online? I know, you're going to tell me that it's gambling and that the TOS doesn't support this. I do completely understand this. But it isn't like slots or roulette. It's a game based on strategy, logic, observation, and general knowledge of your situation. I actually lost my job in 2009 and, while looking for a new one, only made my bills by online and casino Poker. There is so much depth to the game and people LOVE to watch others that are very good at it due to…

                        • Rebroadcast VODS

                          Recently there have been alot of channels rebroadcasting their streams and twitch has the ability to replay past streams as "live". I would love for there to be a way to rebroadcast streams from VODS on mixer. It should also be added to xbox possibly? Also it would help alot of people who cant do 24/7 rebroadcast streams cause their computers cant handle it.

                                  • Allow Background Music Support from Microsoft Groove or Pandora when streaming on Xbox App

                                    If there was a way to let music from Xbox One to be heard on stream in the background, this would easily be the best streaming service on Console. If this relies on removing VODs, I'll take it

                                      someone suggested making an app to watch streams but i would like to stream from my PS4 and there are probably also some people that want to stream from XBOX one

                                        Hello everyone!

                                        I got a question. Iam from Czech Republic (Central Europe) and I really do like Beam.pro BUT, closest server for me is in Frankfurt which means worst ping. I moved from the Twitch and there is the choice to stream on the Prague server.
                                        Do you have any plans to create Prague server too or its not worth at the moment for you.

                                        Have a nice day,

                                        Patrik "Barbarrossa" Becha

                                          Scheduled stream reminders Request from new streamer, to be able to schedule streams so that followers can get an email reminder a set time before the stream. Most streamers will let their Twitter followers know half an hour to an hour before stream, but this does not cover all of the followers. To be able to send stream reminders via email would be a much more effective way to bring the crowds, and automated based on scheduled events would make it easier on streamers.
