As the falling leaves signal change, so too do the updates that have come to the Mixer streaming service as part of its ‘Season 2’ evolution.
Today, Microsoft announced the aforementioned evolution, and is promising big things through it. This includes:
- Skills add stickers, GIFs and celebratory effects to a streaming chat, helping to rally the community and support the creator
- Sparks and embers add additional support for streamers
- A new progression system (coming in 2019) helps viewers level up on their favourite channels and Mixer as a whole
According to the PR folks, these changes stem “from the belief that streaming should be more than a one-way, static experience, the new capabilities add additional options for expression, channel monetization and community building.”
