Co-streaming, one of Mixer’s most unique features, has recently gotten some improvements. The latest change to Microsoft’s streaming service made it so that, when you’re watching a co-stream, you’ll be able to pick and choose which of the streams you actually want to watch. This comes as a big help to people who want to watch just two or three of the people in a stream, but for whatever reason aren’t interested in everybody else along the way.
By popular request, you can now hide+popout individual co-streamers, and manage your VODs from your channel page, including editing titles! pic.twitter.com/Q1q9KA3N1q

The feature allows users to watch multiple streams at one time, when multiple people in one game are each running their own streams. It’s a useful feature if you’re watching a team of League of Legends or Counter Strike players get together, but want to see everyone’s point of view. While this isn’t necessarily one of Mixer’s big selling points as they try to gain a foothold against Twitch, it’s one of the small quirks that sets Mixer apart.Further reading: Microsoft, Mixer, Xbox One
