Coming from a massive tech company such as Microsoft I expected less issues. Animations are laggy, especially when minimizing a stream into the bottom right corner of the screen (and vice versa). Also, when a stream is minimized/pulled down into the bottom right hand corner it sits snug above the applications bottom menu bar, however when you’re viewing streams within a game category the minimized stream window sits awkwardly in empty space since the menu bar is gone when in this list. Another thing to mention is that the color scheme is a bit dull. I get that highlighting the content is important the the whole entire UI is ONE COLOR which leaves the UI to feel lackluster or unappealing at times. It’s not bad, but it could be so much better if they added more colors/shades and many some differentiation between UI elements. Maybe that’s all personal preference but the application just doesn’t feel all that polished.
This application is fairly ok however it fails to deliver some key features which this mobile application is created for and advertising..... Sharing. The app clearly focuses on its ability to share its broadcasts through a wide range of social media outlets, however when an attempt is made to share, via Facebook or a “link” it does not work in the least. Although I enjoy sharing and broadcasting content especially when I am able to edit from online content for uploads, I would love to be able to share on the fly via social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook. This can be an essential tool for those who make a career or as a hobby enthusiast however using this app further dampers and makes difficult of what could otherwise be an amazing sharing and broadcasting experience. I give this mobile application one star, for many reasons, mainly to grab the attention of serious broadcasters as well as developers in the hopes that they may Improve the app and bring it up to the standards that we can enjoy and become much more productive as well as increase our followers and presence in the social community as a Gaming community. 1 Star
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.
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
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.
