The Mixer create app is completely focused on the live streaming gameplay directly, Mixer aims at the users who wish to watch streams and interact with content developers etc. via live chat. While the Microsoft’s version of Twitch, Mixer offers a similar feature set. For example, users will be able to subscribe to their favorite channels, chat using emotes and also will be able to watch the broadcast live.

With this stunning release of Beta version, now the Trending section has got a new face to accompany a carousel on the top that cycles through the featured broadcasts. This is being followed by the section of top games and also the trending streams. Now, when a user is going to tap into a game, he/she will be routed to the game’s hub where all the current broadcasts happen to displayed.

The best part is the filtering tool has also been upgraded, it has now the ability to select for the broadcasts that are highly interactive with co-streams or those that exclusively feature Microsoft’s ‘Faster than Light’ technology also known as FTL. It is Mixer’s low-latency streaming protocol that allows for sub-second video latency while streaming goes on. This simply means streamers can interact with the fans in real-time where the feel of everything is as good as the real life which is truly amazing!

Now in addition to FTL, this new Beta version of Mixer gameplay app for Apple and Android phones have also made a promise for giving out the faster performance overall and of course, an increased amount of stability.  There are many better form of personalization features are also being added, including a new section which is comprised of tracking favorite broadcasters and also a section with the recommended streams, profile management tools for tweaking Mixer’s settings.

However, there are many features which are yet to be added but yes, they are going to be reliable features of push notifications, further chat parity features with Mixer.com and co-streaming playback experience improvements.
