Mixer has always been to connect broadcasters and viewers around the globe, and it’s been amazing to see our community grow internationally this year. With this global growth, the number one piece of feedback we’ve seen is added language support.
You certainly do not need to speak English to watch or broadcast games on Microsoft’s Mixer, but would not it be nice if you could navigate in whatever your language happens to be? there is currently a good chance you’ll be able to do exactly that.
Mixer.com currently supports 21 languages, together with many variants on common languages. you can find a Cuphead stream using Chinese (Simple or Traditional), for example, or surf Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds feeds in Portugese (including its Brazilian form). Major European and Scandinavian languages are also covered alongside Japanese, Korean, Russian and Turkish.
This could be a bigger move than you might think. If Microsoft is going to present Mixer as an alternative to Twitch for gamers around the world, it arguably needs to court them in their native tongues.
Twitch is already available in a slew of languages (including a few Microsoft does not have yet, like Greek and Vietnamese) and might be more alluring if your English skills are not that nice — this helps level the playing field by making Mixer that much more accessible to a wide swath of the human population.
To change your language, simply go to account settings, scroll to the bottom and select language. Check out the full list of languages now available, below!
