Mixer's signature features include native streaming support from Xbox and Windows 10 PCs, as well as industry-leading low latency between streamer and viewer for more engaging chat experiences, and also an interactive SDK, allowing game developers to allow viewers to control streamer's games directly.

We have our own channel on Mixer, right here, which features game broadcasts from the Windows Central team, and our official live podcast with our own Exec Editor Daniel Rubino and our Windows guru Senior Editor Zac Bowden.
