Microsoft's Streaming Service Mixer Now Available on Both iOS and Android

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is experimenting with a new feature that would allow Xbox Live subscribers to chat with other users on their mobile devices.

Still in beta, it allows you to use the Xbox App for party chat when you're away from your console, also - and this is perhaps the biggest draw - to be able to play and chat with console friends in cross-system games like Minecraft. Microsoft typically brings beta features to its main Xbox apps within a few months, so it should be available to both the regular iOS and Android apps shortly.

I use the beta app myself, and while the chat bubble feature still needs a whole lot of optimizing, I'm pretty excited about this new party chat functionality.

Update: We are now being told this is a separate app that you need to download through the Windows Store.

Now the ability to watch 4K video is limited to the Xbox One and the Xbox One S. If you have these models you may need to update your YouTube app to take advantage of the 4K video. The beta app is open to the public, so anyone can dive in. Notably, the development team notes that the beta process wasn't just a way for them to soft-launch; instead, they have used the feedback and comments from users to build the app "pixel-by-pixel" to give a better user experience, whether that means faster updates, personalization, and interactivity.
