Microsoft announced a new program that allows Mixer Partners to earn money when people sign up to Xbox Game Pass or upgrade to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate through their channel. Mixer Partners will receive $3 for every person that joins Xbox Game Pass or upgrades to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. In order for a Mixer Partner to receive payment, the person who signs up needs to enter the Mixer Partner's code into the Xbox (beta) app on PC or the Xbox Game Pass app on Android or iOS.
To enter the code, you need to use the "Support a creator" section within the account menu. Microsoft outlines the steps to make sure a Mixer Partner gets paid and all of the other details of the program in a blog post. If you don't see the option yet, Microsoft states that you should check for an update. The feature is rolling out to PCs today and will roll out to other platforms later this week.
In addition to helping Mixer Partners earn money, users can also save money on Xbox Game Pass. Right now, you can join Xbox Game Pass and get your first two months for $2. You can find a list of all Mixer Partners here.
