Microsoft’s streaming service Beam has been re-named - it’s now called Mixer.
The Twitch-rival is also getting two new features: co-streaming for multiple people to broadcast on a single channel, and mobile support to stream while on the move.
“If you’re playing with your friends you can bring all of those streams together on one channel page,” Mixer boss Matt Salsamendi told Eurogamer in an interview.
Mixer’s new mobile app will let users on iOS or Android stream on the service as well. Salsamendi has some interesting ideas for mobile usage:
“The idea is you could strap mobile phones to nerf guns and have a real-life battle, and see from every perspective. The idea is to continue creating diverse experiences for more diverse broadcasters,” he concluded.
