Mixer is a video game streaming platform that is owned by Microsoft. The platform was called Beam before the acquisition, and these days, it’s the third most used streaming service on the web behind YouTube and Twitch. Now, since the platform is owned by Microsoft, users can sign in with their Microsoft Account, and that’s good. However, what are the options for those who had a Mixer account before the software giant acquired the company, can they link their account with a Microsoft account if they have one?
Yes, this is something you can do, and with ease, to be honest. We are going to discuss how this is done in great detail, and in a way for you to understand even if you’re a novice where computers are concerned.
Additionally, it should be noted that Microsoft automatically creates a Mixer account for any user who broadcasts from an Xbox console for the first time. For those who already have a Mixer account, then the first step below should be followed.
