  • Glimpse of Potential

    By Kandarr
    Mixer would be awesome if they’d fix some simple problems. There’s no way to make the overlay completely go away while you’re streaming. Ever try playing Cuphead with something blocking part of the screen? There’s also no way to scrub through your saved streams on Xbox One, so you can’t show people something in a stream unless you sit there and watch the entire stream. Also, when you find a streamer you like, there’s no way to friend them on Xbox live from their channel. Which is weird, since it’s now Microsoft’s streaming platform on their console. It can be a pain typing in crazy gamertags manually. The phone app is only good for watching streams, and that’s about it. As far as I can tell, you can’t even watch your past vods on it. This stuff shouldn’t be happening, Mixer has been out for awhile now and these are basic issues that should’ve been addressed. I hope they fix everything, because Mixer is really easy to fire up and stream from, and the platform is really solid with high quality streaming. -Kandarr
  • Very unresponsive

    By Michaelusher33
    Problem 1: the app (phone) won't load my friends' broadcasts. Multiple of my friends, who are on different servers i.e. West coast and east coast and have great internet speeds, wanted to broadcast a madden gameplay but, when I clicked on one' channel it was a seemingly forever loading screen. I figured I'd try my other friend's but, it kept pulling me back to the channel I was first on. I closed the app and went to one the featured broadcast and it worked fine. Problem 2: I tried to search for my friends' channel but, it was extremely difficult and I forget how exactly I did it however, when I typed in their gt EXACTLY how it's spelled nothing would pop up except the suggested channels. I haven't been able to use the phone app successfully yet. I've tried on an iPad, iOS 11, first then tried on my iPhone 7, iOS 10.3.3, and neither would load my friends gameplay. At first I wanted to see their game but, it got to the point where I wanted to troubleshoot and I came to the conclusion it cannot be useful on my handheld devices.
  • Mixer has some issues

    By Tooltime001
    Mixer does a fairly good job of streaming, but there are some issues to point out. First, on XBox, it doesn’t refresh the pages when you’ve been in Mixer for a while, so you end up with thumbnails that are just the “blue” ones. Then you have to force close the app and come back in. Second, the chat box used to scroll the text up as you type in it so you can always see what you are typing. It doesn’t do that anymore after Mixer was updated. Not sure why a perfectly good feature like that would be made worst. Now you can only see two lines worth of what you are typing and then it goes outside the chat box. Third, and most recently, if you open a multi stream party and try to expand the stream on the RIGHT, it will now only expand to a half window. Used to work fine before. Mixer team....please address these problems and stop creating more. This is a good app, but it’s being made worst by these flaws.
  • Good Content, Bad Broadcasting

    By king_terrenceiv
    I love the direction that Mixer is moving, which is why this is a 3-star review rather than a 1 star review. They are getting exclusive rights on some popular e-sports tournaments and they do a good job supporting those events from a branding and exposure perspective. That being said, the actual video broadcast is low quality. There is a lot of latency, a lot of audio drops, and frequently crashes. There is also an abysmal amount of options to try and combat this latency. First thing I thought when my video started freezing is, “well I’ll just turn off the chat.” Unfortunately that is not an option. You also cannot lower the video quality or turn off the audio stream. This lack of solutions to the latency issue and the latency itself can make streams almost unwatchable, but I trust Mixer to fix it at somepoint.
  • The Streaming Experiences

    By BootheBoys
    I’m not the biggest streamer, no, but I enjoy the community that has been built on mixer. It’s about the friendliest people gathered in one place, on one platform. The FTL is amazing, but there’s always one problem. Streaming from the Xbox... the console this platform is based around. You can have overlays now with LightStream, but it says it’s 720p, but for me it’s about 480p. It has glitches changing scenes and whatnot. I just want to be able stream from a stable 3rd party integration that has overlays and all sorts of things, like OBS. I know, I know, it’s a work in progress and it’s coming along, but for now, 4 Stars is the experience - from a streamers point of view. Viewing wise? 5. Definitely more interactive than Twitch. Great job so far though! ~ BootheBoys
  • Better than Twitch but still some bugs

    By Robot Giggles
    This interface is more user-friendly than Twitch… And a lot smoother for streaming and quality than twitch. The only problem I have is with the app. I am unable to do a lot of the things on the app that I am able to do on the computer. For example, hosting and following buttons tend to not work at all even though you can see them. Also, it would be great if you could see your own home page without having to search yourself. Other than that- Mixer is the way of the future and the interactive buttons for watchers make it a more fun viewing and hosting experience alike.
  • Past broadcasts are almost unwatchable

    By iiNFiNiTex Arts
    Past broadcasts are almost unwatchable, because you can’t change the quality of the video. Why make a mobile app if the user needs to have a fast WiFi speed to watch anything. This app just maxes out the user’s data and once that happens good luck using this app anywhere except from home (which defeats the purpose of having a mobile app) You can change the video quality while watching a live stream so why can’t you do the same with a past broadcast? Also when you are trying to skip to a certain part of a past broadcast it will repeatedly restart the video. This happens on both the iPhone and Xbox app. Please fix this so that people who live in different time zones can still watch the stream when they miss it due to the time difference.
  • Good app, but some issues.

    This app is good but it’s not great. There are some annoying issues that should be fixed in future updates. One being an issue where past broadcasts are unable to be watched. Sometimes it just errors out and you have to shut the app down and restart. Another is organization. Once logged in, there is no direct icon or link to hit in order to get to your own channel. You have to manually search for it as if you are searching for a stream to watch. Very annoying. What would fix all these issues is if they incorporate the mobile mixer site into a an app with the app feel and aspects. Problem solved. The mobile site is nice.
  • Great app, but annoying bugs

    By ThatHart
    Have been using the app for about 3 weeks and It works well not many issues performance wise, it’s perfectly in sync if u were to watch it on an xbox,mobile app,browser pc etc. The only reason i would give it a 2 star review is for how frequent i run into the bug for the chat stream not refreshing. This bug consistently occurs every 2-3 minutes no exaggeration, the chat freezes/ doesn’t refresh forcing u to have to close the app to refresh the chat, it’s very tedious and it does not always solve the problem closing the app. For reference i use the app on my iphone 6+ and am currently on IOS 11.3
  • Banned for what?

    By 8ballsTbag
    I use to use mixer all the time over twitch it was easier to use basic all around I liked it better. I've been following a streamer since Facebook and ended up popping up on mixer I was like ohh no way I know them watch the stream commenting here and there I asked where from? They told me.. Happened to be the same state as me I said Oh ya where at? People in the party on stream said they won't tell you where exactly.. Ok fine with me go to comment something else I got banned..............? Lol banned for asking where from? If you ask a 5 year old where from your in trouble but an adult? I will not dump any money into mixer for that reason clearly simple questions your on thin ice... Back to twitch 🙄
