  1. Add a tab on channels to display a streamer schedule and timer

    Allow streamers to display an adaptative schedule which display timezone hours of streams and a timer linked to it shown on top of offline screen to know when a stream will be launched.

    • Make follow button on clips more visible

      So my hobby is to find unique moments and advertise small streamers via clips. I have a quarter million plays now and also use socialblade to track follower increases. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/3XuMOg2.jpg

      Currently the follow button on clips only shows upon hovering. How many users even realizes it's there? Why not make it more visible and reduce barrier of entry? This would increase follower rates and help support streamers, as well as encourage clip marketers like me. The follower numbers & growth could be much, much better. There's plenty of screen estate left on the right sidebar, please use them to…

      • Custom Badges for members of a twitch team

        Basically streamers who are part of a twitch team will have a badge that will ONLY be visible in stream chats of the members of the team just so viewers and mods of those streams can identify the members of the team and not confuse them with trolls and it could be beneficial for everyone since some viewers could give that team mate a look to their channel. Only the leader of the team should be able to create the badge by the way.

        • Add support for Co-op Streaming on twitch

          Currently on twitch Cooperative streaming and combining communities is a widely used concept to have two streamers join together on one stream. It would be very beneficial to add support for such a workflow via creating a dashboard option to add another streamer as a co-host for the stream. This could allow users to follow both streamers if they are enjoying the content, instead of just the one who is broadcasting.

          • To add "Reading" in "Playing..." options

            Recently, I've tried new content at my stream. I was reading for my viewers different books and received a good feedback from them. I think that if "Food" and "Creative" exist, "Reading" might also get it's own popularity.

            • Broadcast overlay xbox one, BEAM has it and you dont

              Broadcast overlay. BEAM on xbox one lets you choose position. Warning twitch, get on it or this option WILL cause you to lose xbox broadcasters. On elder scrolls the new Xbox opaque overlay covers my ultimate skill if I cast on twitch. Which means you can no longer cast eso on twitch from Xbox. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SEE THAT SKILL! stop being a lazy unprofessional company with your Xbox one application. It's been so long we've been asking for this simple option. Get on it moons

              • Allow streamers to link the affiliate program to a charity.

                With the new affiliate program, I am suggesting that streamers be able to link the money they would receive with a charity rather than their personal bank account/PayPal. When I asked @TwitchSupport about this, I was told there was no native support, and told to use third party tools for this. However, then I would not have access to the other benefits of the affiliate program, such as emotes.

                • Watch Series with Viewers (Prime Viewers only)

                  Do you know that feeling as a Streamer when u want to chill and relax and just want to watch some TV series with your viewers? But you can't, because it's against the twitch rules?

                  So some time ago Twitch and Amazon Prime got so much intertwined, that it would be possible to do exactly thesw chill-series-streams some streamers want.

                  The TV-series streams would be only visible for prime users and when a streamer switchs to this kind of stream, the non-prime users will get a screen where it says, that they can't watch the stream and need to purchase…

                    • Please let us delete Followers!

                      Please let us delete Followers. I had some trolls in my channel, creating stupid usernames including my channelname.

                      I reported them over a week now and twitch is doing nothing. This accounts still exist....

                      I dont want them in my follower list! I dont want them to get a mail, when i go live to remember them "Hej, he is online again, lets get there and troll him again"!
                      If someone is trolling, following and gets a mail everytime, when the streamer is going live, he can start over and over to create troll accounts.
                      So: PLEASE! Let use remove…

                      • Create a separate page to redeem and see Twitch Prime Benefits

                        At the current moment, there is a small user interface to try and redeem my current benefits. An actual page where I can see the current benefits and redeem them would be great. Trying to redeem things shouldn't be this hard.

                          As everyone knows, the ability to change usernames has recently come out. However, a few months ago I came across people changing their localized display names. I decided to change it myself, and on the Twitch information page on localized display names (https://blog.twitch.tv/localized-display-names-e00ee8d3250a#.n56ey7691) it is NOT noted that this is a permanent feature. When I changed mine, I did not know I was unable to change it back, and I expect that there was a warning in Japanese (as you have to change to the language to change it), but I cannot read Japanese and when I used…

                          • Allow a timer for autohosting to turn on/off.

                            It'd be nice if streamers could set dates and times for autohosting to automatically turn on or off.

                            Examples:
                            1. An autohost turns off everyday at 5am, about an hour or two before the streamer usually goes live. It turns on at midnight, a couple hours after they've normally gone offline.
                            2. If a streamer is going on vacation, they can set the autohost for the specific dates/times they will be gone and unable to stream.

                            I believe that having more options and control over autohosting would prompt more people to use it when they are not live.

                            • Basically the new layout is trash. I come to twitch to watch people stream certain things, not to see what they are upto.

                              Twitch... this new layout is TRASH. Majority of people come to twitch to WATCH certain streams, not to interact or see what streamers are upto or planning to do, we honestly dont give a shit. Stop wasting time and money on useless shit like this. Stop using your brains and money for trash updates that the users dont give a shit about. Before you waste X amount of money and time again.. maybe release some polls as to what the users of twitch would like you to see implemented.

                              • Allow for gifting subscriptions

                                It would be nice to have a way to gift subscriptions. I know streamers who wish they could give them as prizes or gift them to their mods, I've often wanted to give them to my fellow mods, and many community members I know have wanted to gift them to each other. It would be wonderful if right below all the options to buy a subscription for myself there was a little, "Gift a subscription to another Twitch member," with maybe the ability to make a little E-card or something and otherwise be the same as buying my own subscription.

                                      as a mod it would be helpful if i could talk to all the other mods without having to whisper them each individually once by one.....all we would have to do is type "/modchat <message>" and it would show up in chat like the ban, timeout, purge messages do. All mods can communicate without the rest of chat seeing it. Also, they can be pinned for important channel stuff like in discord, so any mod coming into chat can see what's new or changed with regards to the stream rules and such

                                      • Make the "more details" tab on the Events Page for channels a dropdown

                                        I would suggest that the "More Details" tab on a channel Events Page be a dropdown menu you can expand and collapse instead of a separate page. That way I don't have to navigate forward and back to see all the information about a channel's events.

                                        • Have streams with the lowest viewer count show at the top of a category, not the bottom

                                          Currently on mobile, when browsing in diferent games, the streams with the most viewers are always at the top. This kind of ends up being a cycle, they have the most viewers, so more people find them, so they have the most viewers. It would be cool to sort it by the lowest viewer count first, or maybe have an option so we can pick which way around it is sorted.
