Keep Stream Online (Game Crashes & Switching Games)

This has been suggested before but I wanted to reinforce it with the stream staying running even if a game crashes as well as when a streamer changes games. I think this is a really important feature that needs to be added to the Xbox App sooner rather than later.

        I can't support this enough. When you are using the Xbox's built in Mixer app to stream and your game crashes for whatever unforeseen reason the stream crashes too. My suggestion would simply be to put up the away screen for 5 minutes or something. If a valid game comes back then the stream continues. If no valid game is started within that time frame the stream is shut down. Sounds like a simple fix to me, but hopefully it's not too complicated to actually implement.
