  1. I would like to NOT see bots listed under "users in chat". It is annoying and I can't tell who is a real viewer and who is a bot.

  3. 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

  4. 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).

  5. Allowing customization of the Founder Badge's appearance, like the Bit & Sub Badges, will let streamers make the badge better fit to the theme of their channel and less generic looking.

  6. 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.…

  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. Similar to Twitter, so when you click on a user's name in chat you will see:

    • A "follows you" tag so you know if they are following you, if you happen to see them in another channel's chat

    • An option to view "channels you both follow" so you know if you have any other channels in common

    People often say they see similar names in other chats and it would be really useful to know what channels/interests you share with other Twitch users.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. add that accounts need to be with a certain time of creation decided for the same channel, time can vary from no time to days, weeks, or months if intended.

  12. The stream viewing options on desktop include "fullscreen" (no chat displayed) and "theater mode" (chat occupies about 1/3rd of the screen, on the right). Given that the vast majority of streams are in widescreen format, dedicating a large vertical column to chat results in the gameplay "window" occupying less than 1/2 the screen, with huge "letterboxing".
    It would be a huge improvement to allow the viewer's chat display to overlap onto the video feed, via a window that can resized, repositioned and whose background can be made transparent. It would serve as an "interactive fullscreen" mode, where viewers can be…

  13. Followers only mode set for anything above thirty mins completely just kills people's channels. Replace it with how old their account is instead

  15. For people who are trans and/or non-binary, letting streamers know your pronouns in chat so that your gendered correctly can either be awkward or difficult. An option for people to add their pronouns in brackets beside their usernames or in their profile cards in chat might help to let the streamer and/or chat know if a user feels it's important.

  16. 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…

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. It would be very nice, if it's possible to delete your own message in the chat. It happens sometimes that you write something what sounds pretty good in your mind, but if you read it in the chat after sending it, you recognize that it wasn't such a cool Idea to post it or you mention by yourself that your message is stupid and want to delete it. A cool way to implement this would be, if you add a little bin between the own message, that you can easy delete it by clicking on them.

  20. In slow-moving chat the “More messages below.” text obscures the last message. Maybe it would be better if it was a bit lower down so we could read the last msg?
