Mixer Create on iOS can now stream any game

Mixer Create on iOS has, until now, been limited to streaming games that supported Apple's ReplayKit technology. These were few and far between, rendering the app mostly useless to keen mobile gamers.

That's now changed with the latest update, or rather it has as long as you're running iOS 11.

The latest public build now has the ability to use the iOS 11 screen recording feature to enable streaming of any game you can play on your iPhone or iPad. If you're not on iOS 11, sorry, you're still limited as before.

It's a great feature to finally have, and with some of the stellar titles available on iOS right now, it should make for some tasty Mixer streams.

Grab it for free from the App Store at the link below.

  • something, something, win10 mobile
  • It's time to leave Windows Central. Hardly any worthy news except a few. To much non news clickbait. To much general stuff.
  • wow, much drama.
  • Bye bye
  • 🖐️
  • 👋
  • I don't know, still seems like it wouldn't be able to stream crysis.
  • iPad just got the full version of Civ VI, never know, it could happen ;-)
  • Does the readership of Windows Central care about this? Wouldn't they read about this on dedicated Apple sites? And do people actually stream mobile games? That's the saddest of the bunch.
  • We've been covering Mixer Create since it first came out since it's a part of Mixer which we cover the Dickens out of. Yes people care. Generally though it's the people who don't that decide to spend their precious time commenting about how they hate it, zomg not Windows phone etc etc.
  • So as per u what does readership of windows central care about? The why is it a good thing series
  • Funnily enough, a website has stats and such to look at that aren't just whiny babies in comments who think they know best.
  • What a childish remark. Just wait until the flood gates open. I'm still here, but know many feel the same. I would love Daniel and Zac (and you for games and VR) started their own site. Away from Mobile Nations
  • This is what making software looks like in late 2017 and beyond. Also shouldn't Mixer, a Microsoft product, work everywhere and have the best functionality. This is a Windows/Microsoft news site.
  • Windows users instead get a lump of coal.
  • even that lump of coal works better on iOS and Android
  • Mixer streaming is built into Windows 10. Dunno what people are crying about.
  • Mixer needs a Windows 10 app, even a Win32 one would be fine.
  • Why?  Is there something that's not currently possible?
  • Why? You can stream from the built in tool and if you're on your PC just go to the website?
  • Are you really asking why Microsoft would want to build their app using the universal platform? Why would anyone else develop for UWP when even Microsoft doesn't see a reason?
  • But you still don't explain what that app would do that can't already be done
  • Again, why? Apps need maintenance. There are no phones to worry about, and Windows tablets can do the same as a desktop. Your suggestion is Microsoft needs to make an app that likely won't get used much just because? That's not generally how business decisions are made.
  • Too bad Mixer Create was phased out. The Mixer app does no have the same functionality
