  1. Test Stream Mode

    Whether you are a veteran streamer, or just getting started, you are constantly testing your settings. Bitrates, framerates, encoding settings, resolutions, delay and many more performance and quality related values are always being tweaked to get the perfect quality for each streamer.

    Having a mode you can put your channel in that silences all notifications, and doesn't put the stream in the browse section would be extremely handy for testing quality and performance settings.

    In this private mode, the only way people would know you are streaming is by going to the link directly. The main browse page would still…

      Getting settings right can be difficult, testing interactive integrations, getting audio levels sorted, and checking stream quality are all super important to producing high quality content. We’re working on test streaming to make this easier!

    • 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.

      • 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…

        • Follow All Button in Costreams

          It would be great to have a "Follow All" button on Costreams that would allow a viewer to follow all the streamers who are currently in the costream. User's would still be able to hover over a streamer's profile picture and follow an individual streamer.

          • Ability to make highlights from VOD's

            add the ability to make short clip highlights from the stream that stay permanently in your "past broadcasts" section. This is similar to the Video Manager on Twitch, so that we as casters can cherry pick the best moments from our stream.

            • pro use free sub

              Mixer Pro Membership or Xbox Live Gold can sub 1 time to a streamer of their choice. Similar to twitch prime. Bring more incentives for the program while also supporting their platform and content creators.

                Add a checkbox in channel settings to show that your channel is raid friendly by having it put "raid friendly" beneath or on top of the channel somewhere

                  We have some awesome plans for raiding coming up this Summer. Top of mind is a native raiding feature that allows streamers to set up friendly community raids on broadcasters that are comfortable being raided.

                  Would love to get feedback on specific features you’d like to see here, but think of it as a host mode on steroids. ;)

                • See all partner emotes you have access to in emote dialog

                  We'd like to be able to see all of the emotes we have access to, across the site, from all of the partners we sub to.

                    Awesome news. Work has begun on this feature and you’ll start to see it roll out in the coming weeks.

                    Transparently: We wanted to get started a lot sooner on this, but our key focus was on stability and bug fixes for the Beam 2 site. We want everyone to be able to watch and interact with Beam streams smoothly on a range of networks and devices and we needed to prioritize that work over features.

                    Excited for this to be a thing!

                    - Matt

                  • Make whispers have their own box

                    I really like how twitch does its whispers. Having a separate area for sending/receiving prevents one from accidentally sending a whisper to the wrong person, or broadcasting it in chat.

                      There are some exciting opportunities to leverage Xbox Live’s persisted chat infrastructure to help us build out an awesome Beam messaging/whispering/alerting system, and we’re evaluating the best “Beam friendly” way to present this now. No ETA on a release, but would love feedback on this feature.

                    • Add a "follower" role to the Beam Chat API for Bots

                      With the Beam Chat Bot API, you get several pieces of information about a particular user chats in your channel. You can figure out if they are a sub, moderator, pro user, staff, etc.

                      What you can't find out though is if they are a follower.

                      Most of the bots on beam do raffles. The majority that do raffles, also support "subscriber" and "follower" based raffles as well.

                      The Chat API tells you a person is a subscriber, but doesn't tell you if they are a follower. The only way you can figure out if a user is a follower…

                      • 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.

                          Viewers should be able to follow a team page, so they can be alerted when any of the team members go live, even if they don't follow that team member.

                          • Mixer NEEDS search filter options! Ratings, language, and more!

                            I believe it is in every viewer, streamer, and even Mixer's best interest to include website search filters to help us ALL find what we want to watch easily and faster.

                            Search filters like ratings (Family, Teen, Mature), Languages, game genres (could save a lot of small genre streamers be noticed), game titles, & maybe even stream titles, but also to avoid them as well. Having options to exclude types of streams will also help the sites ease of use and help direct views to channels that could be not noticed.

                            Helping viewers and streamers a like, this is common…

                              As like discord, we need an option to make a user a bot, so that streamers and users watching the stream know that its a bot and running a program and not a real user.

                                Happy to say that after much discussion we’re planning on making this a thing! We’d love to give third party developers the tools they need to shape the experience on the platform directly and we’re confident this is a good step in that direction.

                                  We’re beginning work on this feature now!

                                  Would love to hear from you, what social sites are you using? Here’s a list of additional sites we’re thinking about.

                                  Spreadshirt
                                  Soundcloud
                                  Patreon
                                  Gamewsip
                                  Instagram
                                  Steam

                                • 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…

                                    If spark buttons are used, the sparks shouldn't just disappear endlessly into a void. A percentage if not all of the sparks should be given to the streamer with the interactive buttons.

                                        • 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.
