It sounds easy enough, right?
There are currently two ways to create your Mixer account and it is going to depend on if you are an Xbox user or not.
Note: Microsoft Account is often referred to as MSA by Mixer staff.
I strongly recommend you have your Mixer and Microsoft account linked because you will receive promotional awards with Mixer Loot. Promotional awards are usually digital items for any game that is running a Mixer Loot promotion.
Create your Mixer account on an Xbox One
This method is the easiest if you own an Xbox and are already logged in. All you have to do is use the Start Broadcast feature and a Mixer account will be created for you with your MSA e-mail and already be linked. Bonus!
Create your Mixer account on Mixer.com
You will need to go to Mixer.com and click the Sign Up button and then “No Account? Create One”.
If you login with your MSA here, they will be linked.
If you use a different e-mail, you will need to link your Mixer and MSA together.
But Ara, I don’t have a Microsoft Account?
I’m glad you aske! If you don’t have one and don’t care about getting any Mixer Loot then you don’t need to make one. You can always create and link one in the future if you change your mind! Additionally, if you want to earn Mixer Loot, you can create a Microsoft Account now and then link accordingly. 🙂
Linking your Mixer account to your MSA account
- 1. At Mixer.com, log in with the Mixer account you want to use.
- 2. Select the profile icon in the upper-right corner, select Account > Link your Microsoft account, and then enter your Microsoft account info.
You’re all linked and ready to watch or stream, now what?
Now that your account is created, linked and ready for streaming or watching you can read through some other posts on this blog to learn more or jump right in and start watching/streaming!
Here’s a variety of great streamers to get you started:
In no particular order!
Happy streaming & watching! 🙂
