Microsoft suddenly removed Windows’ native Mixer streaming component from the Windows 10

Some players have discovered that the game streaming media service component built into Windows 10 has been deleted, and Microsoft has not released any announcements and notices. This game’s live media component belongs to Windows’ Mixer live web site. This component is located in the Xbox Game Bar feature. At present, Microsoft’s game live broadcast website is competing with several other old live broadcast websites, so it is surprising that Microsoft suddenly deleted this live streaming component.

After some gamers and tech media discovered this, Microsoft issued an official statement to the media to confirm that the Mixer game live component was completely removed. Microsoft said that the removal of this streaming media component is mainly based on user feedback. After the certification, Microsoft adopted the user’s suggestion and decided to delete it. The company also said that deleting this streaming media component will provide users with better gaming experience, and users are welcome to continue to provide other opinions to Microsoft.

With continued, great feedback from the community and after careful consideration, we have decided to remove Mixer from Xbox Game Bar to focus on delivering new, more often requested experiences across Mixer, Windows 10 and the Xbox Game Bar,” Microsoft said.

You can broadcast to Mixer from Windows 10 devices using third-party tools such as OBS, Streamlabs, and XSplit and continue to use Xbox Game Bar for screen capture and sharing, controlling your music and audio settings, finding new teammates with Looking for Group (LFG), and chatting with Xbox friends across Xbox console, mobile, and PC – all without leaving your game.”
