Microsoft's Twitch competitor Mixer is getting some important improvements on mobile devices today. Version 3.5.6 of the Android and iOS apps is rolling out to users, and while it doesn't include major new features, it should make the experience a little more pleasant. Here's what's changed for both platforms:
- This update includes significant improvements to video playback, memory, and data consumption
- Clips: The ability to modify and delete your clips
- Unfollow prompt to prevent accidental unfollows
- Brand new first-run experience
Users on Apple's operating system are also getting another interesting addition: the app will now handle links to Mixer so users can open streams directly inside the app. Despite having a relatively good average rating on the Play Store and the App Store, many of the user reviews point to performance issues with the app so, hopefully, this update irons out some of those problems.
Mixer has grown quite significantly since Microsoft rebranded the platform previously known as Beam and, earlier this year, the service announced an array of updates to the experience, including an all-new design on the web. The current mobile apps are also relatively new, as the company launched a major redesign late last year. Smaller improvements like this are definitely welcome, however - you can never have too much optimization. You can download Mixer for Android here, or get the iOS version from the App Store instead.
