Jerome Holman, Senior Program Manager on Mixer Mobile Apps, discusses the new Mixer App, available today.

Just months ago, we announced we were rebuilding the Mixer app for Android and iOS. Since then and with the help of our community, we’ve built the best version of the app to-date, and are excited to announce it’s available for download today on Android and in the coming days on iOS.

Complete with a new code base to enable faster updates than ever before, we’ve redesigned the new app pixel-by-pixel to offer a more consistent Mixer experience across devices. From beta through to launch, we’ve focused on improved discoverability, new personalization options, and Mixer interactivity. You’ll notice this new functionality, designed to immerse you in your streamers’ experiences, wherever you are!

We’ve also added several new features: push notifications, tap-and-hold video previews, and an introductory first-run video to help you get acquainted with what’s new. With a Mixer experience optimized for mobile, stay connected with the streams you love.

Download the current version of iOS and the receive the new update soon!

Push Notifications: New notifications mean you’re always in the loop and connected at all times — especially when you’re on the go. Get notified when your favorite streamers go live. Follow your favorite streams directly from your phone or tablet.

Easier Navigation: Whether you’re looking for something new or something you’ve been watching for a while, new “Trending,” “Following,” and “Profile” tabs get you there quicker. Tap-and-hold on the home page to see a quick video preview. You’ll notice improved discoverability thanks to an enhanced search algorithm. The “Trending” tab now shows the top streams based on viewer count.

Enhanced Stream Page & Player settings: Tailor your viewing experience to fit your needs. Within the app, select your stream video quality, toggle through chat and audio, and easily share the stream you’re watching with friends.

In addition to the new features above, below is a refresher of all the great functionality we’ve improved upon during the beta period:

  • Featured streams at the top with auto previews
  • Trending Games spotlighted on your home page
  • Search history added below the search bar
  • A new Following tab, with LIVE and recommended streams
  • New indicators to help you easily find streams using Interactive, Co-streaming, and FTL
  • An improved Profile page with links to your channel, your level, and your sparks
  • Improved filtering for Trending broadcasts
  • Improved Chat complete with Viewer list, whispers, and basic mod featuresIn the new Mixer mobile app, you’ll sign-in with your Microsoft account. Learn how to create a Microsoft account here. Also to note, Apple has updated the app rating to 17+, which may impact iOS users.With thorough testing and tons of positive fan feedback, we’ve tweaked and tailored the Mixer mobile app just as you’ve requested. Here’s to the Mixer community for sharing thoughts on what a mobile streaming app means to you! Keep the feedback coming!

Welcome to Mixer. Streaming is better this way.

Details about the new Mixer App Beta for Android and iOS from Jerome Holman, Senior Program Manager on Mixer Mobile Apps below:


When we brought FTL beta to our Mixer mobile app last month, we said it was the first of many exciting things in store for Mixer mobile fans this year. Now, we’re thrilled to share the next step for Mixer on mobile – a completely new app for Android and iOS!As we listened to the community feedback, it was clear that we needed a new foundation to deliver more timely improvements to our fans. The new app helps us accomplish this with an entirely different codebase, built with agility and rapid development in mind. Our beta update today features significant enhancements around the core user experience, content discoverability, app performance, and personalization — but it’s just the beginning. Look for a faster cadence of updated builds, and we hope to hear from the community directly on what’s important.Let’s dive in deeper below.

*Easier to find broadcasts that interest you: We’ve completely redesigned the trending section to focus on finding cool broadcasts. Now you’ll see a familiar carousel at the top of the app that cycles through the featured broadcasts on Mixer. Right below, you’ll see top games and trending streams on Mixer. When you tap into a specific game, like Minecraft, you’ll see a beautiful game hub with all the current broadcasts of that game. We’ve also significantly improved the filtering tool, allowing you to specify game broadcasts with Interactive, Co-Streams, or Faster Than Light (FTL) Technology.

*Improved performance: Everything in the app is now faster and more reliable than ever before. From FTL playback to simply navigating throughout the app, we’ve sweated every detail to make sure your experience is smoother. Reconstructed from the ground up, the app’s new code base provides better stability and has been optimized for mobile functionality. With these improvements, we’re one step closer to a more consistent Mixer experience across all platforms.

*Personalization: The new Mixer app has a completely refreshed user interface. With it, we’ve added a Following section so you can see what’s happening with the broadcasters you care about, as well as recommended streamers to check out. In the Profile section, you can manage your Mixer settings and see your channel’s information (followers, VODs, broadcasts).

*A fresh coat of paint for the features you love: We took our time to ensure that we didn’t lose a feature you love while we rebuilt your Mixer app. Almost all of the top features that are available in the previous Mixer app are now ready for you to test with a refreshed experience in this beta. We couldn’t fit every feature into this initial beta, but we hope to finish the features rapidly with your bug submissions and feedback in the coming weeks. Here is a list of everything you’ll find in the release today and some features that will be coming soon:

  • Top level home carousel shared with Mixer.com with always playing previews
  • Games now on your home page instead of in a filter tab
  • Search with search history
  • Following with LIVE streams ordered first
  • Recommended streams bubbled up to the top
  • Iconography to visually indicate streams with Interactive, Co-streaming and FTL
  • An improved Profile page with links to your channel, your level and your sparks
  • Improved filtering for Trending broadcasts
  • Chat with Viewer list, whispers, and basic mod features

And coming soon:

  • Reliable push notifications for Android and iOS
  • Further chat parity features with Mixer.com
  • Co-streaming playback experience improvements

Hey Mixer fans! We’d like to officially introduce you to the Mixer Create app—now out of beta and available for iOS and Android. We’ve heard your feedback that you want to stay connected with your community on-the-go, and Mixer Create makes that easier than ever with mobile gameplay streaming, vlogging, chat companion, participation in co-streams and the ability to manage your Mixer settings – all right from your mobile device. All the details below:

You can now broadcast playing your favorite mobile games directly from your phone – no extra software or equipment needed. On Android, this will work with any game. On iOS, it works with a selection of top games (those that have chosen to enable “ReplayKit” functionality).
