You can pick up the app via iPhone and Android right now, though this isn't considered an "official" announcement just yet as Microsoft hasn't made any kind of statement about it. The biggest new feature of the beta app is the addition of party chat through your Android mobile device.

According to a blog post on the Mixer development blog, the Mixer app is officially available for both iOs and Android devices. If you are an iOS user then go to App Store and download the app. Now that it's in testing, we'd expect that the feature isn't too far off from making its way to the release version of the app as well.

I use the beta app myself, and while the chat bubble feature still needs a whole lot of optimizing, I'm pretty excited about this new party chat functionality. Mixer is still trying to make a dent, so refreshing its mobile experience is key to staying competitive. "From beta through to launch, we've focused on improved discoverability, new personalization options, and Mixer interactivity", Holman stated.

More specifically, since the beta the app has added push notifications to know when your favorite streamers (cough cough DualShockers) is going live, a switched up display to ease navigation, and the ability to switch up video quality and toggle both audio and chat.
