Mixer Removed From Xbox One In Latest Console Update

It's the end of an era, folks! Microsoft's Mixer streaming service is now being removed in a console update for all Xbox One users ahead of its discontinuation on July 22nd.

According to Windows Central, this update went out over the weekend (although we think it might have happened for us a little earlier), but either way, all references to the Mixer service including apps, shortcuts and even the ability to broadcast directly from the Xbox Guide have been removed for us.

As of this Wednesday, Mixer will begin redirecting to Facebook Gaming in a new partnership. However, while the ability to stream from the Xbox One dashboard is being temporarily disabled "so we can build it into a more social experience," players will still be able to use the Twitch app to stream in the meantime.

Sad to be losing Mixer, or aren't you bothered? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
