Beam is now Mixer

Today Microsoft the rebranded Beam to Mixer.

Matt one of the founders of Beam explains the reasons for the name change.

“Why the name change? This was a tough decision, and not one that we made lightly. But, it was something that we decided on as a team. We believe so much in the power of the platform and want to grow it in every major market around the world. Unfortunately, that wasn’t something we could do with the Beam name. We chose Mixer as our new name because it represents what we love most about the service… how it brings people together.”
