  1. Reintroduce "Pinch to Zoom" on Mobile

    After a recent update to version 5.8 on January 17, 2018 a feature on iOS mobile was removed to be able to "pinch to zoom" in on areas of the stream. Being on mobile with an already smaller screen, when I'm watching Magic: The Gathering streams, it's really important for me to be able to zoom in on the various cards to read details of the print. With this new update, the streams are locked into the "full screen" view and it makes it much more difficult to view.

    Is there a possibility to reintroduce the "pinch to zoom" functionality…

    • Respect people who HAVE to have a sub lapse, indicate how many months total they have subbed

      1. Keep the sub badge so it represents the current consecutive streak. That way there is still incentive for those who can keep the sub streak going.
      2. On Hover and in the resub notification, display the consecutive number of months and then the total number of months.So the streamer can see that they have been supporting, but may have had a lapse.
      3. When in a current lapse of your sub, your last sub streak should still display but displayed in some way (such as being partially transparent) that indicates the sub is not currently active. This would show…

      • Make gift sub notice that says the number of total subs gifted optional

        This new gift subscription notification text that specifically says the number of gifted subs the person has given in a channel was probably put in place to reward those gifters, but it's having the opposite effect from my anecdotal experience. There are several users who gift a LOT of subs across the community I'm in. I'm talking hundreds a month. Each of them has said they give less gift subs because of this new notification, which calls out how many they've done, makes them feel awkward, etc. I could definitely see some people who would like that feature, because maybe…

        • Add Chudat's iconic "Yeahyuzz" as an emote

          Chudat is a key feature of the SSBM community and whenever he is on Twitch, the chat lights up with thousands of "Yeahyuzzzz" and "=D7" and there is an amazing opprtunity for this to become one of Twitch's most iconic emotes and see the Smash community more represented on Twitch

          • Streaming language Armenian

            Dear Twitch Team,

            Please help to develop the Armenian gaming community, we have a lot of good players who want to stream in Armenian, to communicate and speak Armenian, but there is nowhere such a streaming platform where you can communicate in Armenian, if you could add Armenian to your wonderful platform, we would be very grateful

            Thanks
            Armenian Gamers

              There is a SERIOUS problem going on with bits and how your automated system is handling it. You are banning streamers that have done NOTHING wrong, and we need you to look into this. PLEASE.

              • Streaming Language Swissgerman

                The Swiss Twitch scene is getting bigger and bigger.

                However, since we do not speak/stream German but Swiss German,
                viewers have difficulties to find us on Twitch.

                Would there not be a possibility for Twitch to add the language 'Swiss-German'?

                That would help our community grow a lot and especially for the streamers, so they dont have to change their language.

                • More Affiliate Emotes

                  As an affiliate who is succeeding in grabbing a wonderful community of viewers and subscribers, I would love for them to receive what they deserve for their patronage to both me and Twitch. I believe that Partners should 100% be allotted more emotes for their success, but the same could be said for us affiliates. I understand that can be difficult to do considering you (Twitch) wants to have more benefits for partners. However, I believe there is a middle ground that could be met and I have a few ideas that I will list to give us hard working…

                  • Autohost based on game

                    We have an official game channel on Twitch -- we have tons of streamers that play the game, but (of course) most are variety streamers.

                    We'd love to autohost some of these folks playing our game, but it'd be awkward if we autohost them and they randomly play :any game that's not our game:. After all, it's the official game Twitch channel!

                    This would be useful to any themed streamers or gamers that only play x or y game. There may be variety streamers that play MOBAS but a LoL Twitch channel would autohost their friends only when they're playing…

                    • Create a Global Emote for Brian/izl. Honor him.

                      I first saw izl/Brian as an Admin on September 24th, 2014. His shield badge and BTTV glow was so shiny that I had to take a screenshot. https://i.imgur.com/xJHr6oB.jpg

                      I was so new to Twitch back then. On day one he showed kindness by giving me great advice and 4 URL tools, I was so happy that I had a way to check hosts and count chatters.

                      When our community was nervous about rejection, he reassured us to try applying for partnership. Later on, the streamer got partnered.

                      Years later, he founded the Moderation team that enabled communication & collaboration. http://streamernews.tv/2016/06/07/brian-mcnulty-created-a-twitch-moderator-slack-team

                      • Moderator banner

                        I am a moderator of a Twitch channel which regularly has more than 1000 spectators. When we want to convey a message to viewers, it is often difficult to read...
                        I propose to add a new feature to moderators so that they can display a visible banner of all (as, for example, that of bits donations).
                        Thanks in advance.

                        • A library of approved emotes / don't delete emotes when changing.

                          Lovingly lifted from the comments section of: https://www.reddit.com/r/Twitch/comments/7x9vrv/please_let_us_change_emotes_without_deleting_the/

                          Two things -

                          1. Deleting of emotes when want to change them is a pain. It means subscribers lose one of the (few) benefits that are given to them at the affiliate level. It's just that the approval process takes so long, that not being able to use anything while waiting for approval stinks.

                          2. I think it would be great if we could have a library of previously approved emotes, so we can swap them out for holidays, etc. If you want to keep it to 3 active emotes for affiliates,…

                            Add the ability for someone to show off how many total months they have been a subscriber rather than being forced to show off a sub streak and then let the user be able to announce either a streak or total months subbed since they first subbed to you. Sometimes people can't afford to keep a sub streak going. They get to 6 months, fall under hard financial times and then a few months later they want to sub again when times are better for them but want the streamer to still know that they have been a huge supporter…

                              If a broadcaster does not stream often or regularly, it can be tough to keep up with their channel. If they switch their Twitch username and you don't recognise it on your follower list, there should be a way to view their past user names to clarify who the streamer is. Quick and easy, Steam has a similar feature that has helped me not remove friends after a username switch.

                              • Add different gift badge tiers / custom gift badges

                                You should add different tiers of the gift badge, like the bit badge. It currently shows the ammount of gifted subs already in the message in chat, but this should also be reflected in the gift badge.
                                Do a score system, lets call it gift score, like following: $4,99 sub gives 1 point, $9,99 gives 2 points and $24,99 gives even 5 points, like you did it for the streamer with the sub score.
                                Depending on the gift score give different badges. Maybe in steps like 3,5,10,25,50,100 etc...

                                Give the possibility to the streamer to upload their own gift badges,…

                                  I know that it's hard to give control over how the panels fall on the page due to the page's responsiveness, but I would love to add linked images to the body of a panel. I want to be able to have a "sponsors" section with images for each of the sponsors linked. I don't want every sponsor to have its own panel that falls at random in my layout.

                                    In the past few month I've got a big problem, when I stream and many viewer can't watch the stream, because it's just buffering. Especially her in germany, where the digital infrastructure is not the best, it's a huge problem. I, as a growing streamer, am very limited in growing, when about half of the streams I have no quality option. So I think there should be an option, that assure me the transcoding possibility.
                                    I think for the viewers, it would be a resonable decision to prefer streams, that are in 6MBit/s or in general a higher bitrate, than…

                                    • Allow streamers to add clips to collections

                                      Sometimes there's no point in creating highlights because other people have already created awesome clips. It would be really nice to be able to add clips to collections, so relevant videos, whether highlight or clip, can be viewed together.

                                      • Have an Indie category like Retro/Creative/IRL/etc

                                        It would be super lit to have an Indie category to play lesser-known games. Very often I'll try to stream an Indie game and it either wont be listed on Twitch or have 0 viewers. It would be beneficial to indie devs too to get their name/games out there.
