Ticker updates 7/27/2017

We have some pretty big updates to Muxy Ticker today!

Do you listen to Spotify while you stream? Now you can make sure everyone knows what song is on with the newest Muxy Ticker file: spotify_now_playing.txt. You can even display the album art! Go to the new Integrations tab to connect your Spotify account.

Later on, we’ll be releasing a Spotify app for the Muxy Overlay.

We’ve also slipped in file for Monthly Top Donator and made performance improvements.

Many of you have been asking for a profanity filter for Ticker so you can safely display donation messages. We’ve added the filter to Ticker, and we’ve also improved the filter across all of Muxy. Turn on the Ticker profanity filter in your File Settings.

Make sure your Ticker is on version 0.7.1 to access these new features!

Can Twitch beat Day of the Tentacle using Muxy Interactives?

tldr: Stop by the Muxy Twitch channel and play Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle!

Maniac Mansion Twitch Plays Muxy Engagement Engine Interactives

Twitch Plays Day of the Tentacle using new Muxy Interactive features

On Wednesday, May 24th, we beta launched our new product that we have been working on for the past six months. It is called Muxy Interactives, and it showcases some of the power of our Engagement Engine. More “intentionally vague” information can be found here and here.

As an experiment, we have whipped up a new “Twitch Plays” that we hope you all really enjoy! We’re starting with the legendary Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle

Stop by the Muxy Twitch channel and join the fun!

How to play:

  1. Note* Muxy Interactives currently do not work on mobile, sorry!
  2. Tip* This experience works best in Theater Mode.
  3. Click on the screen to let our system know what action you want to take place.
  4. We then use a “consensus algorithm” to decide what action everyone participating has chosen.
  5. Communicate with others in chat to get the correct actions clicked!
  6. Have fun! Kappa

New beta features!

We’re currently running a beta of a few of the cool new interactive features that we’ve been working on for the last several months!

Ten broadcasters are trying them out right now. If you want to see what we’re planning, check out which of them are live here. The beta is not available on mobile.

Try out our Overlay (with a voting system and confetti🎉), work your way up the Cheer Leaderboard, and find out what music is playing on the Pretzel music app.

To interact with the Overlay, click the buttons on the side of a participating stream to open widgets that you can move around the video player. You can also send confetti to the broadcaster that’ll rain down over their stream!

It’s been a while since we’ve released anything big, so we’re excited finally able to show you what we’ve been doing here at Muxy! Let us know what you’re most excited about on Twitter.

Once you’ve played with the new stuff, please fill out this quick feedback survey!
