Four years ago, Microsoft bought a service called Beam.

Microsoft is giving up game streaming
They then changed the name to Mixer and had great e-sports ambitions.

For a long time, it looked like they wanted to join the fight long-term to capture a large enough audience, especially when they announced that they had managed to hand in e-sports star Shroud in October last year.

But then, during Apple's big press conference last night, Microsoft announced that Mixer will be disappearing next month.

Mixer users will be sent to Facebook Gaming next month
Starting July 22, Mixer users will be sent directly to Facebook Gaming, launched in April.

The company also wants to help creators make the transition as easy as possible so that gamers in the Mixer community who already have a partnership will receive the same status at Facebook Gaming.

Those who have money in the Mixer will receive the same amount back in the form of Xbox gift cards.

Microsoft explains that the somewhat sad ending is because their user base is so much smaller than Facebook's and that the company doesn't have enough time and resources to build such a community from scratch while developing consoles, games, and services.

This is what Microsoft says about the future of gaming streaming:
“The key to our vision is Project xCloud as we look to deliver games on all kinds of screens in your life, including those on Facebook.

Gaming is already culture and Project xCloud can take you from discussing a new game - whether it is a fun moment in the game posted by a friend, an ad, or an ongoing stream - directly into the game.

In the future, through the power of Xbox Live and Project xCloud, we see that there is only one click between "I watch" and "I play."

Microsoft reports that they are working to grow Azure to scale to achieve this.
