Twitch, Mixer, Xbox apps on iOS / iPhone

The official Mixer app updated on iOS and Android this week with a couple of changes to improve the offline viewing experience for users.
In addition to the fixing of a bug that was preventing some users from logging in, this update also enables the Mixplay feature for channels that are offline and improves the look of offline channels with a cleaner design and a channel banner.

Here’s the full release notes for Version 5.8.1 on iOS and Android:

  • Squashed a lot of sign in bugs
  • Offline channel state is cleaner, sleeker, with a banner.
  • Mixplay can now be accessed while the channel is offline! Great for testing.

Mixer is Microsoft’s video game streaming platform that functions in a very similar way to Amazon’s Twitch. Microsoft has been putting a lot of money and resources into Mixer recently with the courting of Ninja to the platform, new monetization features for streamers, and the testing of video ads on channels.
