  1. Provide an API hook to extension developers which notifies on each received message before it is going to be distributed to the users.

    Bots can only delete already delivered chat messages afterwards. Clients can intercept the deletion. Furthermore it is not possible to write own chat commands for now.

    With a hook, if a user types '/do something', extension developers were able to prevent the delivery of the message and perform some action instead.

    Beyond that I would like to see API calls to send chat notifications to specific users - just like 'your message has not been sent yet.…

  2. Having this enabled cuts off about 10% of chat from a viewer perspective.

    Rather than disabling it or have viewers by multiple means removing it from view on their own. Perhaps a collapse arrow for the module can be introduced to bring the chat window back to it's fullest state.

  3. Can we have rewards that rather than limiting redeems per stream we can limit 1 redeem per x time.

    Eg; Have a scene change redeem that can only be used once and hour

  4. Some people don't mind watching the chat replay. That's fine. But others do not like it. If viewers had the option to hide chat replay like they can during live streams, everyone would be happier. It would also reduce the amount of resources needed to view videos, especially for lower end computers.

    There is absolutely no possible downside to adding the ability to disable chat when watching replays.

  5. Remove timestamps from VODs. You used to be able to turn them off, but since they've taken away the chatbox there is no settings wheel to turn them off

  6. replayable Video let be option the chat message time Duration(this have now) OR streamer Local time, this useful when watching a missed long duration Video(~ 10 hours). Because the time context really matter what hapened and when(in the night or dawn or morning).

  7. The theater mode is already a step in the right direction! However, many streamers implement a live chat on their screen and in these cases it would be great to only have a chatbar in you UI to type messages but not see the actual chat. Because now you have to see the chat twice if you want to join in conversation with these streamers and this feature would make it so that you can almost watch in full-screen while still talking!

  8. Why not do it like in other competitors so that for example cheering messages hang at the top for a while and that they can be read while they hang there at the top. And make a selection of simple followers as it is done for subscribers, you can also do it for a while, for example, the icon with an avatar hung at the top of the chat and then disappeared.

  9. Chat latency needs to be improved upon, because it's constantly trying to send and receive 0 Bytes of data which in turn causes the chat to need to constantly "reconnect". I've monitored over the period of 20 minutes to an hour where the chat is constantly flooded with "Welcome to chat", and the network monitor shows the Twitch chat API constantly sending 0 Bytes taking up to 1.0 minutes to 1.6 minutes, where else everything takes ⅓ of that to load at at rate of around 3 ms - 400ms.

    wss://irc-ws.chat.twitch.tv/ Websocket takes up 1 minute to 1.6 minutes to…

  10. there is still no option to change the letter size - only by using bttv! Would be very very nice to do it directly on twitch without a 3rd party tool! Also i suggest an option for different sizes for the video/stream player - right now i have big video window which uses to much space

  11. Current dark mode with the new twitch app on phones and black (#000000) colored names do not work well, while white (#ffffff) colored names are being changed to light grey.
    Please change #000000 to dark grey. Thank you.

  12. One of my favourite streamers has recently grown to a point where it's hard to get a handle on chat. He plays with other streamers, and the chat has grown so hostile that it's discouraging streamers returning, and discouraging me (and presumably others) from participating.

    I feel for the moderators. The chat moves so fast that it's nearly impossible for them to do their jobs.

    It should be possible for us normal users to help out. Let us report messages to the moderators. Give them a separate tab from chat, that just singles out the reported messages to let them…

  13. "Chat to be first!" Once someone accomplishes that then it changes to "Welcome to the chat room!"

  14. Hey, i'm a french user, and i want to know if my idea is possible
    I want to know if it's possible to create an option for popout chat when we are on redifusion of stream, that is so interesting when someone have two (or more) screen and want see the redif in fullscreen.
    It's basic and not a priority but it's interesting for some viewer, I think
    Sorry, if my Englis is so bad :/
    Thanks for read

  15. Currently we have all kinds of ways to block various people from chatting, except the most important one: People avoiding bans by creating new accounts.

    Thus we should have a new mode that only allows users with "established" accounts to chat, i.e. the account must be reasonably old.

    Continuing with the theme of follower-only mode this should likely be configurable, with the number of days since an account was created for the user to be able to talk.

    Suggestions for default: 7, 30, 90, and 180.

    Even requiring 7 days since the account was created will make it significantly more…

  16. Having 12h times is confusing, since where I live, all printed times are always given in 24h format.

    I'd like there to be a UI option to switch between.

    If feasible, the default settings whould depend on the user's locale, so most people would never need to touch it - it'd be "right" for them automatically.

  17. Sometimes you need to post information to your channel that is best viewed when its multiline, like a table with header and rows, list of items or some mini-report from the channel bot.

    Since IRC can't use CRLF in messages, I suggest adding a way for channel mods (avoids abuse) to use a special symbol (or double-space as in markdown) that would visually act as a line break.

    That way it would be possible for mods (users and bots) to post quick summaries to the channel that are easy to read and do not require several posts to make it…

  18. Users sending a spoiler could use this command to show it only to the people that really wants to see it. When using /spoiler followed by a message the chat will instead display a "Spoiler" button which when clicked will show the message.

    Examples:
    /spoiler The cake is a lie!
    /spoiler The girl dies at the end of the game!
    /spoiler The princess is not on this castle!
    /spoiler Kappa

  19. Some viewers may notice prompts for key community events when chat is closed in web view and theater mode.  This feature lets users know they can participate in these events when chat is not visible.  By selecting the prompt, chat will open automatically and you can choose to participate in the event.  The prompts will not be visible on mobile or when watching in full screen.  

    This feature is in limited release and we are looking to collect feedback during this time.  We look forward to hearing from you!
