MINIMUM AGE: 17
WHAT IS IT?
Mixer, owned by Microsoft, is an app dedicated to live streaming of games
WHAT WE SAY:
It's got a 17 rating for a reason.
Little to no control of what children may be watching in terms of violece within games, bad language, drus use, glorifying violence etc.
Mixer can often contain content that is unsuitable for children.
SAFETY TIPS TO CONSIDER:
Many games being streamed have high levels of violence
Very common to hear bad language being used by those people playing/streaming - ask children to tell you if anything goes wrong
It does feature a report button on live-stream pages, so viewers can flag content/users during streaming - but that doesn’t shield them from exposure during live-streams.
