  1. Chat input is delayed

    I'm not sure if this is channel-specific, but most of the times on go.twitch.tv, your chat input takes a while to show up on the chat box when you submit it.

      • Visible chat/whispers character limit

        It would be very helpful to have the current hidden character limit shown just like on twitter or similar websites, and not be able to send the messages when they are too long, instead of giving us the illusion to have sent them successfully when it is not actually the case. Both in chat and whispers.

          • add sub tier to IRC object

            Right now the IRC just gives a true false on if someone is subbed, can we get an update like instead of true false, have it like the subscriptions object 100, 200, 300 for tier 1, 2, 3

              • Stop "Conversations" Tab from Covering Video Options in Theater Mode.

                Currently, clicking theater mode causes the new "conversations" button to stay on the screen over the buttons to click out of theater mode, and the go to full-screen. I'm sure this is not the intended feature. Please fix this.

                • A reminder when trying to communicate with a blocked user

                  One of my Twitch friends inadvertently blocked me. He would send me whispers, but I couldn't reply. Every time I attempted to reply, I would see the message "That user's settings prevent them from receiving this whisper." It would be helpful if a similar message was displayed for a Twitch user whispering someone he or she has blocked - "You're whispering someone whom you've blocked. That person is unable to whisper back to you."

                  Also, it seems as though blocking someone from whispering automatically blocks receiving a DM from them. In situations where someone was blocked inadvertently, it would be…

                  • DM character limit

                    Twitch has imposed a 4,000 character limit for DMs. It would be extremely helpful if there was a counter with the composition window that showed a user how many remaining characters may be typed in a message before that limit is reached.

                    I learned of this limit the hard way; one time I clicked 'Send' on a message, only to get a screen with a red box across the top of it informing me my message had exceeded the character limit and my message hadn't been sent. Unfortunately, the text of that message was lost too.

                    • Displaying Whispers

                      It would be helpful if a user could make the window displaying Whispers larger, so it's easier to both compose and read messages, and follow the conversation.

                      Also, being able to move where on the screen the Whispers box is displayed would be appreciated.

                          Beginning yesterday 4th august I can no longer hide chat, so it takes up 20 - 25 % of the screen and the stream. The button to remove chat is gone??

                                In the new version of the twitch app for Android (v5.0.3), there does not appear to be any way to have chat on the screen while in landscape mode. This was a feature that I used a lot and its disappearance is disappointing.

                                Was this intentional, or an oversight?

                                  Being able to increase the max scroll back value beyond the 150 limit would help a lot with chat moderating, and help with chat interaction from the broadcaster. This feature would disabled by default in settings but once enabled the user will be able to set the value to his/her liking. Having a maximum limit to start with ex. 10K would be a great start, with the set maximum value becoming bigger over time.

                                      Make chat customizable so streamers can turn on/off different stuff and combine them like badges/colors etc and make each chat unique.
                                      In my case I'd like to turn off nickname color, combine all badges into one (i.e. if viewer is a sub and prime one then he will have badge with crown, if he is sub and moderator then he will have badge with green border), in case of regular viewer (just follower but always watches the stream) then he will have his nickname color

                                      • Halloween emote tweak

                                        For Halloween, change the emote ResidentSleeper to ResidentCreeper.
                                        If not that, maybe add one in. The tweak could be as simple as adding a bright red-ish white glow to each of his eyes as seen in some memes.

                                        • Twitch whisper

                                          I love the whisper option on twitch But my conversations get so long that I would like to clear them and start fresh. I know many have asked about this. Please put it in an update. Thank you!
