  1. Russian language in Beam

    Hello. I want to ask you to add Russian language. There are a lot of Russians there, but they can't find Russian streams and it's bad. Beam will develop faster if there are some more languages... And also I think Beam needs advanced filter (as in twitch). All users want to find streams and streamers in their own language. Now they can't do it and it's an unpleasant problem, you know. I really hope you will do it, because I love Beam and want to use it in future. From Russia with love :)

    • 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!

      • Japanese language in Beam

        Dear Beam Team.
        Would you add the UI localized for Japanese ?
        A lot of Japanese come the Beam these days.
        We hope evolve the Beam in Japan. We wish you could localize.

        Best regards.

        • 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.

          • Create a channel editor role

            Channel editors should be able to change title, game, maturity rating, VoD information (when that's possible), VoD highlights (if/when that is possible), and manage the native bot.

              Hi everyone! Wanted to pop by and give an update to keep everyone on the loop. This is our highest upvoted issue, and because of that we want to make sure that we deliver an awesome experience for this use case.

              Super secret leaks: Our goal is to create an awesome realtime streamer dashboard, with stream previews, chat, moderation logs, stream quality (frame rate, bitrate, dropped frames+packets, etc…), and provide streamers with the ability to allow certain trusted users access to this dashboard to help manage the stream.

              I’d love to get feedback from everyone on this. It’s quite a large feature, and we’re committed to getting it right, so to be transparent we’re targeting this Summer for an initial rollout of this feature. I’d love to get feedback on the mean time on what works today on other sites, and what you’d like to see in our implementation.

            • 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.

                    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!

                      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. ;)

                    • 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…

                          We are DESPERATE for Beam Swag. It's been almost a year since we were teased with the idea of sweatshirts. Then it became summer, and there was talk of teeshirts.

                          Now, on the new MS Studio Beam Level Up Cast - you were tormenting us with stickers.

                          PLEASE setup a store where we can buy swag. :)

                            You’ll begin to see Beam merchandise at conventions and events we’re at: I’m wearing a pretty dope hoodie while writing this ;). Be sure to keep an eye on https://twitter.com/Beam and in Level Up casts for the most up to date info!

                            No word yet on a wider merch rollout, but it’s something we’ve got our eye on.

                          • Allow users to follow a team page

                            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.

                                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.

                                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.

                                • 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…

                                      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

                                    • Spark Transfer

                                      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.

                                      • Adding mute function to chat

                                        Many users want the function that can ignore someones unpleasant comments by themselvs. Is it possible to add the funcion like this at an early date?

                                        • partner charity

                                          We would like to see the option for partners to be able to automatically donate some or all of their income to a chosen charity.
