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 sense to business with merchandise already. Make every product easier to find, more sales! So I am shocked mixer has yet
to add any search filters aside co-stream and interactive, cause as a business they are forgetting that streamers are their product to sell and profit on, not neglect and NOT help be seen by paying customers.
So I call upon all viewers, streamers, mixer staff, and mixer itself to vote for adding search options as well as exclude options from search, so their streamers/products can be easily found and viewers alike can easily find what they WANT TO WATCH faster!
I was told: "If filters is wanted then sure we will consider them"
So do you all want filters? Do you want the ease of finding streams you are looking to watch from English to Japanese, to Family to Mature, to RPG fans to FPS players...
What do you want to search? Tell me, I want to hear what everyone wants to find, leave a comment with what you love to watch on mixer, and then state how long it takes for you to search through new streams to find it?
Thank you for your time,
Ika BakaKu & her crazy lewd Dungeon (who wants to see Mixer more than just a basic site, but far more for everyone to enjoy easily!)
Thank you for suggesting this. We are investing in language + rating filters now and you will see them in an upcoming update.
In the future, we are also considering a larger discovery update to improve personalization and show a wider breadth of content, although we have nothing specific in progress on this front yet.
Mixer Team; one word.. #hashtags ;)
Platform filter is the key one for me. I do not play PC, PS or Nintendo nor do I have a need to watch their streams. I also would like to see a filter for game companies/developers so as to see more "official" streams.
Please add Platform Filter
One thing that I would add to this is that channel ratings should probably fall more in line with that of perhaps ESRB or whatever agency Mixer picks...that way it's a bit more clear where the content of our streams lies.
So as a person who is coming from another streaming platform and strongly considering completely moving over, I think that Mixer has an edge on Twitch from a searching functionality already. If this starts in the works now and twitch just finally catches up to the way Mixer is doing this, Mixer could already be one step ahead and making the interface even better. I think that this needs to definitely be looked into. Another way would be to allow streamers to add tags on the back end of their stream to be able to provide data for the search feature.
Per iKandy's post, here is what their search area looks like.
I would like to add to this to make a sepperate filter for people using soundboards. I love the interactive feature on the website, but I can't find any because of the loads of people using soundboards. Soundboards are really cool and all, but they are not what in my opinion the interactive feature is really about.
Not sure if mentioned, but platform too. We should be able to filter between what the steramer is gaming on. PC, Consoles etc.
Let the Streamer choose the platform they stream from just like the title and game.
Picarto managed to do search filters very well, maybe the mixer team should check them out and see how Mature content and not mature content can be filtered in and out by the users themselves.

when will you add the filters by language ??
I think that is the main thing today and what is missing is the platform

Pronto Pls! I wanna stream on this platform.

I'm a German Streamer, too and THIS would have to be a thing a way long ago. I discussed that already with Matt and in Discord he told me he agrees that this IS a must have so I'm looking forward to a much greater experience when this is getting a thing. Thanks Team Mixer for your hard work. :) <3
Perfect thanks guys!
DO IT NOW ! THIS IS THE PERFECT MOMENT .. or we stay on twitch .. this is a must have!
This had to be done at the start
it definitely had to be done right from the start of the beam.
@Marcel Lie They're working on it

I think it's stupid how Microsoft does not pay attention to the feedback post here ... over 350 votes and other things with 10 votes will be implemented ...
Yes, I agree. I am german speaking streamer. There are not many of us (I don't know why) on Mixer. So it is not easy to find us quickly. But also all other languages besides english. Thank you.

We need filter by country, I want to be able to find the channels of my country with greater ease. currently I spend hours reading the title of each mixer to find a streaming from Brazil
