    • Total and consecutive number of months displayed when subscribing.

      Viewer subscribed 9 times and for 4 months in a row!

      Add in the total number of times a viewer has subscribed instead of just the consecutive. Often you support a streamer off and on, or there is a lapse in subscription. It would be nice to be able to adequately show ongoing support for a streamer.

      • Allow a choice of thumbnails when creating a highlight

        Oftentimes, the default thumbnail will not accurately reflect the highlight in question. It would be nice to have multiple thumbnails to choose from (similar to what Youtube allows) before publishing the highlight.

        • Console game/party chat

          Have an option to allow Xbox or play station to have their party or game chat audio heard while streaming. As well as, notify others that someone is streaming and give them an option to disable their own voice if they don't want to be heard.

            • Be able to access messages and subscription statuses while on mobile devices.

              Self explanatory... But this idea for for those who are mobile-centric / dont have a pc/desktop of their own.

              • Automatically unhost when starting your stream

                Many users end their stream by hosting another user. They must remember to unhost before starting their next stream, otherwise their stream will not be viewable. This can be an issue for streamers who do not regularly visit their dashboard. For smaller streamers without an active chat this can lead to hours of streaming before realizing they forgot to unhost.

                • Global Partnered Badge

                  A badge, in chat, for partnered accounts. It would be cool to tell these users apparent from chat. It should be optional though. I like the idea, because after all, they do provide the entertainment on the site.

                      • Timer till next broadcast

                        When a broadcaster announces a broadcast at a specific time he can set a timer on the stream page - this way I can know when the stream starts when the time is given in different time zone

                        • multi-view support for samsung phones

                          samsung phones have a thing called multi-view that allows you to use 2 apps at once, so you could have twitch running on one half of the screen while you check twitter or emails while you can still see the stream instead of having to rely on audio only while viewing emails

                            • Can we get a "/purge" command for mods?

                              In order to "Purge" someone you need to do "/timeout [username] 1" which isn't too big of a deal but for example on mobile it makes it very difficult. With the new commands on Android you can click the username if you're a mod in the channel and choose to ban, or timeout the user for 10 minutes. Can we get a command that lets us purge them? And it would also make it nice if in chat mods could simply type "/purge [username]" as well.

                              • Xb1/ps4 Streaming having Overlays, Follower Alerts, transparent chat.etc

                                I think streamers on xb1 and ps4 twitch streamers should be able to have access to overlay, and follower alert templates to be integrated to their streams, as me being one myself and watching many other console streamers it's kinda sad to see streamers with all these things looking more professional so drawing in more views than people using the console just because they have more access to things that appeal to a larger auidience

                                  Have a page where broadcaster can send out messages towards their followers with info about their stream (Changes/New Games/Teespring/...) Twitch doesn't really have anything were messages can be shouted towards followers. Plus people won't have to rely on other social media to stay up to date with news from their favorite streamers

                                  • Hire more Global Mods from different timezones

                                    A lot of times it's very hard to get hold of a global mod on twitch, reports go unattended until it's too late, only way to get hold of one quickly is if you are friends with one. Need more of them around, especially in Asian/Oceanic friendly timezones.

                                        Obviously some measures would need to be put in place to prevent abuse, but this would be a nice feature to have.

                                        • Advertise Smaller Streamers Who Deserve More Viewers

                                          There are many small streamers who I've watched that have amazing streams. These are often people who spend huge amounts of their personal time on Twitch, and support the website. Instead of always featuring large streamers who already have a following, Twitch should give back to the little guys, and make sure that the community knows it is appreciated. This will also help even the playing field, so that there is more of a chance for talented streamers to be found and made popular, instead of having success be so luck based.
