Today, Microsoft is excited to announce the next evolution of the Beam interactive livestreaming platform and introduce our new name: Mixer. But, more than just the name, Microsoft is launching several of the features that fans have been asking for, including co-streaming, a beta for the Mixer Create mobile streaming app, a new moderated channel of content on Mixer called ‘Channel One’ and a new Mixer page on the Xbox One dashboard.
While the service will operate under a new name, the core experience remains unchanged. Gamers will still be able to interact with streamers and play together in real-time, as opposed to the traditional 10-20 second latency commonly seen on other platforms.
Microsoft is also excited to announce that Xbox will be broadcasting its E3 briefing in UHD, with a special edition Mixer 4K broadcast for those with a 4K display.
