Windows 10 Tip: How to get started viewing and streaming with Mixer
Mixer is the only next-gen live game streaming service that offers viewers real-time influence and participation in game streams. Mixer’s streaming protocol delivers content with less than one second of latency. It makes game streams so fast and clear, that it’s a refreshing surprise to both streamers and viewers—almost like they’re in the same room! Here’s how to get started with Mixer:
To view Mixer content from your PC, simply navigate to Mixer.com.
Featured streams are available right from the homepage, or you can sort streams by game using the “Games” menu on the left-hand side of the homepage.
While you’re there, consider logging in with your Microsoft account so that you can start earning sparks when you view Mixer streams across both Windows and Xbox One devices. Sparks are in-app currency you use to interact with streamers in ways they’ve setup (like soundboards!).
To log in to Mixer with your Microsoft Account:
- Click “Log In” in the top right corner of the window.
- In the Log In menu, select “Log in with Your Microsoft Account”
- In the popup, complete the log in steps using your Microsoft account and password.
You should now see your Microsoft account profile photo in the top right corner of the Window.
