Microsoft’s Mixer Streaming Service Expands Monetization Options

A slew of updates for Microsoft’s Mixer video streaming service starts to go live today for what the company is calling Season 2 of the service. Those updates include new ways for streamers to make money and build community and new ways for viewers to participate in streams.

Skills, which is available now, adds the ability to send animated stickers, gifs, and celebratory effects on the service. Every time a view uses a skill on a partner’s channel there is a small “financial benefit” to the streamer, Microsoft said.

Sparks, also now live, is a way to financial support a partner streamer without having to subscribe. Viewers earn sparks by watching streams and then can spend them on skills and help partnered streamers reach milestones that give them cash payouts.

Another form of monetization, called Mixer embers, isn’t quite live yet. Mixer Embers are a new virtual currency that you can buy and use on high-value skills. Embers will be a paid currency that goes a step further than Sparks and provides a streamer with direct financial rewards and bigger celebrations.







In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
