A few months ago, Microsoft bet big on the live streaming service Beam.  Yesterday, they’ve announced that service has been renamed to Mixer, and now app updates across platforms are reflecting that change.

This is surprising news.  In the past few months, Beam had proven itself to be a decent platform for Xbox One streaming, so we have no idea why Microsoft would choose to rebrand it. We will keep you posted with everything Beam users will need to know to navigate this change, but for right now I recommend updating your personal device’s Beam apps to the new Mixer-branded versions.
