Mixer is Microsoft's game broadcasting platform which has received some incredibly useful features over the past few months. Today, the company launched "Mixer Channel Progression." Mixer Channel Progression is a community feature that enables users to "grow within a streamer's channel" and gain recognition for their total engagement with a streamer.

Unfortunately, Mixer Channel Progression is only available right now on the desktop experience. However, it's expected to roll out to Xbox One, iOS, and Android in the coming weeks. The blog post provided even more details as to what viewers will be able to do.

Starting tomorrow, earning and ranking up for following, watching, and chatting will be enabled on all Mixer channels. Mixer Partners will be able to reward additional monetization actions like subscribing, gift subscriptions, and 'Embers' spend. Since this is an early version of the experience, we're evaluating additional actions and would love to hear feedback and ideas from the community here.

Hopefully this feature will be embraced by the community because a lot of viewers definitely want to stand out and interact with their favorite "Mixer celebrities" more.

Would you participate in Mixer Channel Progression? Let us know. New ways to monetize should help ensure that even smaller creators prosper.

  • It seems like Mixer is all about monetization. I don’t think Twitch pushes it this far.
  • Think it's because Amazon doesn't have their own gaming business (and AWS is slower and more expensive than Azure, esp in Asia).
    Mixer has 1) xbLive integration, 2) game save integration, 3) custom game api integration 4) overlay UI api and many other features and synergies with MS's services and products.
    * Speed, custom game API integration, etc, etc. It's why Mixer Game is possible. One day... say, a streamer is playing a RPG and some legendary items got dropped.
    He can start a lottery and pick a winner, or, he can open a Trade UI and ask if someone wants to trade.
    New gen fan building / interaction is possible imo.
