A while ago I said this app is good for watching streams but lacks critical functionality which prevents it from being perfect... that is largely taken care of. The current version of the app supports FTL, chat moderation capabilities, and has been fully incorporated with the Season 2 at launch... I am shocked though that you still do not see a sub button within the app. This app is not perfect again... but it has taken great steps forward and deserves 5 stars. Mixer is a fantastic streaming platform. This is a great companion application.
Great service, but UI is lacking.
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.
The Streaming Experiences
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
