Once you're logged in you will be shown your home screen. This is where you'll be able to see important information and stats about your Mixlr account.

Now you only need to tap the red button again, and you will go live on Mixlr. Your waveform will turn red to indicate that you are now live!
When you are live there are some additional features available to you. You can press the share button to the bottom right of the screen to share a link to your live broadcast hosted on mixlr.com. Pressing the speech bubble on the left will open your chat window.

Ending your Broadcast
To end a broadcast, press the red square at the bottom of the on-air screen. You will be prompted to confirm your action. On confirmation your broadcast will be ended and you’ll be off air.
Saving your show
As long as you have set your preferences to save broadcasts when your broadcast has ended, you will be taken to a review card of your broadcast. You can listen back to your show immediately.
You have 3 options for what you can do with your finished show.
- Publish Now - uploading your show to your Showreel hosted on Mixlr
- Publish Later - saving your show on you device for uploading later
- Delete - this will delete your show from your device permanently and before it’s been saved into your showreel on Mixlr.com
Pressing “publish now’ will send your show to Mixlr for backup and share the show on your showreel for your listeners to be able to listen on demand.
If you’re worried about using up your mobile data, or you are bandwidth limited you can select “publish later”. This will store your broadcast in your Saved Shows. You can find this by navigating to the Showreel section of the app.
Expand the saved show and you will see an upload button to the left of the playback controls. Press this at any time to share the show on your showreel. You’ll be shown the same confirmation. Press OK, or you can track the progress of your upload by pressing Showreel.
Managing Saved Shows
As well as uploading your saved shows, you can also delete these shows to free up space on your phone. Press the trash can icon, and confirm your action.
Managing your Showreel
