Microsoft is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its Mixer video game service by rolling out tons of new features.
“Mixer has come a long way in just one year and today, we’re excited to announce new features coming to the platform,” a Microsoft representative told me.
Here’s what’s new.
Refreshed Mixer experience. The Mixer web and PC experiences are being refreshed with a new look and feel and to include MixPlay functionality.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege comes to HypeZone. Over 500 unique streamers are streaming battle royale games via Mixer’s HypeZone, and today that experience is being expanded to include Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, a tactical first-person shooter.
DirectPurchase. Announced in February, DirectPurchase lets Mixer viewers purchase games and game content directly from their streaming experience.
MixerCreate improvements. The MixerCreate app has been updated to make it easier to start and manage Mixer Co-Streams directly from a phone. This is available today in the Mixer Create beta on Android, and is coming to all Mixer Create users in early June.
