According to Bohm, the previously app known by the name Beam for the Microsoft Xbox was not as outreaching and interactive as they wanted it to be. He said that they discussed about changing the name of the app. They wanted something to represent what they were developing the app into.

Bohm said that they wanted the app’s name to represent the interactive interface they were going to be presenting to their customers. According to James, the title Mixer seemed to represent all their ideas. It was the suitable title for the interface in which they intended to bring people together and mix.

The Mixer app which previously operated as Beam has had some new upgrades. Multiple screen mode is a defining option. The user can chat, play games and share in multiple screen modes at once. They can also actively play game in multiplayer modes together.

They will have a vast choice for choosing options for playing the games. They will also be able to share their chats and game options with each other.
