Mixer officially launched its mobile application for iOS and Android devices, which gives users the capability of watching streams and interacting with the community on-the-go. If you're out enjoying yourself, you can still be chatting to your friends who are at home playing Minecraft or PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

The feature is listed as beta, so you can expect a few hiccups here and there, but it should function just as it does from the Xbox console. The Party Chat feature has been available on the Xbox One for quite some time but is now rolling out to handsets. According to the release notes, first spotted over on Reddit (via Engadget), the latest update to the beta app adds support for beta testing of party chat. Jerome Holman, Mixer's Senior Program Manager for mobile apps, says the new codebase will allow the company to push out faster updates as well.

If you have the Xbox beta app on Android, let us know what you think of this feature and if you would use it frequently. Until then, enjoy your newfound freedom, Android users.

Microsoft is now testing some new features on its Xbox beta app on the Google Play Store.
