I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add a button to replay the last 15 seconds.

    To be able to review something would add value for the viewers and enhance their experience. Too many times I had to say to myself did really just happened? It would be nice to confirm sometimes what just happened, This would transcend Twitch to next level.

    • Option not to have chat expanded by default

      On all devices the chat is expanded as soon as I open the stream. Since I rarely read chat I always have to swipe/close chat as soon as I open the stream since it takes a chunk of screen. Previously twitch did not do this and it was great. Can we have an option that chat is initially hidden?

      • Add landscape chat to Android version of mobile app.

        Some of us don't own a tablet, or an iPhone (which apparently already has landscape chat) and AFAIK most of us can't type in portrait without going full SwiftRage. Lakitu, Ace, or other third-party apps look better, but we don't really want to be linking our Twitch accounts to third parties in the first place. Any particular reason why this hasn't been done already? It'd be nice even without the translucency present in, for example, Windows Mobile "LiveGaming" third-party Twitch app.

          Thanks for the suggestion, we’ve got a lot of great features planned for Android. Landscape chat is definitely something we want to support.

        • Make Whispers More Customizable

          My suggestion is to make Whispers more customizable right now there are really only two choices for whispers which is certainly not a lot of customization at all. My suggestion is to add an optional whitelist system where users can add certain people to the list and only the people on the list can whisper them. I also think whispers should be visible on the app as well. Generally I think it's a good idea, it just needs a more secure system

          • Have photographers set up at Twitch Con to take group photos!

            At amusement parks and such, there are mobile photographers and booths set up to take photos with your friends! Because there will be so many friends meeting up for the first time irl, it would be cool to have the option to take photos together, then go to a booth and purchase prints!
            You could even have a green screen or backdrops that say "Twitch Con", or have video game characters!

            • Blacklist

              Add a "Blacklist" list where you can see the names of all the people you have banned and an "unban" button right next to the name, The same as the "Ban" and "Timeout" button in the chat. That way, when you accidentaly ban someone you can just go "Dashboard - Unban"

              • Region selection

                i suggest that certain games that have regional servers have a sub section "click LoL, click OCE/NA/EU find streamer. Some of us have to sift through 100s of streams then use a find search for the region to find local players.

                  • Add further whisper filters.

                    Lots of people seem to be having issues with whispers, mostly abuse and link phishing. But, I have not personally had an issue. So, like there is in chat, could there be a 'Hide Links in Whispers' and 'Opt In to Globally Banned Words in Whispers' feature to help resolve the issue.

                      • Make a actual "sub only cam"

                        On the dashboard, add a functionality that allows the streamer to turn on a webcam that is only available to subscribers. You can put it on the side of the video or on top, whichever you'd prefer.

                        This will allow a more genuine connection between the sub's and the streamer and I hope that something like this can be added.

                          Hey Twitch Team,

                          I also have a great idea for the Twitch Mobile App. I'm sure millions of people including myself would love to have a feature where when people post emotes in the chat I could click on the emote and it would tell me the emote name and which streamer it belongs to? If this was a feature I would be able to find out who the emote belongs to and then possibly Subscribe to them and give them some of the credit they deserve. Hope you consider my request ;) Thanks

                          • Add a /follow and /unfollow command

                            So my idea is to make it easier for mobile users to follow others without having to leave the chat and find the person and follow them. My suggestion is to add a /follow <user> command where whether you are on desktop or mobile all you have to do is type the command and it'll automatically follow them for you. Therefore people who use mobile apps don't have to leave the chat just to go follow a person. Contrary to that people should be able to type a /unfollow <user> command that unfollows the person that they type in. In…

                            • More Subscription Options

                              Twitch has a rather old subscription system that honestly needs to be updated. Patreon, a site that allows unpartnered streamers still accept subscriptions from their viewers allows the user to choose the amount they want to subscribe for. This system is very reliable compared to Twitch's. One big improvement that needs to be made for the system, is the ability to choose the amount/per month a viewer wants to pay. So, as a result, Twitch could have a VIP service where the more you pay, the more you are rewarded. For example, a person with $1 per month may get…

                              • Fix opening channels in new tabs.

                                When you view your own or anyone's list of followers/following (i.e. http://www.twitch.tv/twitch/profile/following), it's currently not possible to center-wheel click the avatars to open them as new tabs. You also cannot right-click and select "Open in New Tab" or "Open in New Window".

                                It would be great if this basic feature were implemented/fixed. I regularly view lists of streams and want to open a few of them to check them out but am frustrated by the lack of functionality on these pages.

They would watch a TV programs from their countries, subscribing or just following the country they want to watch. Thousands of people would be interested in watching programs that can not be displayed while abroad, where it's almost impossible for them to see.

                                  • Let streamers be able to gift subscription packs as giveaway items

                                    Allow streamers to be able to gift subscription packs as giveaway items. For example, as a streamer I'd like the ability to buy subscriptions to my own channel then hand them out during my live streams. That way Twitch doesn't lose money, and I get more viewers and followers to my channel.

                                    • Adjust twitch player logo

                                      move the twitch logo within the player to another location OR keep it in the same location but make it fade out a few seconds after starting the player because it hides informaion (for example on LoL it blocks player score and game time and its really annoying)

                                        • Don't autoplay a newly hosted channel when I had the original streamer paused.

                                          I tend to have multiple tabs of twitch open, most of which are paused. Too often when I am doing something else, audio is suddenly playing in an unknown tab because somebody was hosted and their stream autoplays.

                                          I've made the conscious decision to pause the stream, and I want it to stay paused, especially if I'm in another tab. It doesn't encourage me to watch the hosted stream, it encourages me to keep twitch completely closed.
