Microsoft’s Twitch.TV rival Mixer has been getting a lot of traction in recent weeks. After the acquisition of the hit streamer Ninja and the implementation of fan-requested features, Microsoft is supporting the platform well. Now, streamers and consumers have yet another to move to Mixer as Microsoft will allow viewers to support their favourite streamers with a purchase of Xbox Game Pass.
After the success of the service’s Mixer Direct Purchase program, which allowed streamers to earn money from game and DLC sales generated by their streams, Microsoft will now be tying the service to Game Pass.
“Today, with Xbox Game Pass, we’re excited to expand the ways creators can earn on Mixer with a new program,” The company revealed during a new blog post. “Mixer Partners will receive $3 compensation for every new member that joins Xbox Game Pass and credits their channel with a code.”
From now on, new Game Pass members, or those upgrading to the premium Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, will be given a Mixer Partner Code. By going to a Mixer stream, clicking on Support A Creator and inputting the code, you’ll be able to support your favourite content creators.
“With the important role content creators like Mixer Partners play in the discovery of new games, it was a natural step for us to build this program,” Microsoft said. “But it is just the first step. Keep an eye out for future Mixer and Xbox Game Pass news – we may have something else in the works. Stay tuned.”
