What you need to know

  • Mixer is Microsoft's game streaming platform along the lines of Twitch.
  • The service is giving an extra $100 to partner streamers due to the coronavirus outbreak.
  • Many people need a little bit of help during these trying times.
  • Mixer hasn't caught on like Twitch even though it has personalities like Ninja.

The coronavirus outbreak isn't getting any better, and we all must do our part — whether it's practicing social distancing and helping an elderly neighbor get groceries. However, it looks like Microsoft is helping out its Mixer partner streamers. Today, a number of Mixer partners said that they received $100 from the streaming platform.

It's unclear if all partners received this, so if you got one, let us know. It's great to see that everyone is trying to help each other out during this difficult time.

Mixer is Microsoft's game streaming platform that rivals Twitch. The service hasn't been adopted widely even though popular personalities like Ninja stream exclusively on it. Hopefully, this will change in the future because Mixer has a reputation of being a positive place.
