Since it initially debuted earlier this summer, co-streaming has been one of Mixer's more novel recent features, allowing you to watch streamers who are playing together all on one page at the same time. However, users have been asking for more ways to manage the streamers they're watching, and now Mixer has delivered.
While watching a co-stream broadcast, you can now hide individual streamers, or even pop out a specific stream. Mixer Co-founder Matt Salsamendi recently showcased the feature in action on Twitter:
Salsamendi clarified in a subsequent tweet that chats will still stay connected for co-streams, even if a viewer closes a particular broadcaster's stream.
If you frequently tune into co-streams on Mixer, then this is likely to come as a welcome change. Sometimes, whether it's for bandwidth reasons or otherwise, being able to easily cut down the number of streamers you're watching can come in handy.
On the broadcast side of things, co-streaming is available on both Xbox One and PC. Since acquiring Mixer in 2016 (then known as Beam), Microsoft has worked to tightly integrate the game-streaming service with Xbox One. If you want to get started with co-streaming, you can now get up and running pretty easily..
