Learn how to find your Mixer stream key with this how-to guide. We have all the information you need to get you streaming on Mixer.
What Is Mixer?
Mixer is/was Microsoft’s version of a competing streaming platform that was trying to catch up with Twitch and YouTube before selling it to Facebook.
The rest of this guide will be outdated by the end of July 2020 when the platform shuts down.
Mixer is continually growing by acquiring great talents such as Ninja and Shroud. These acquisitions and the community at Mixer makes it an inviting environment to streamers who are just starting.
Something people likely don’t know is there is a probation period while trying to get started with Mixer to stream. You have to wait 24 hours before being able to get a Stream Key and to begin streaming unless you use your Xbox.
