  1. For give aways sometimes important.
    The messages which sometimes contain sensible personal data like addresses or phone numbers for tracking sending and tracking purposes should be deletable/erasable.
    It could get very ugly if a streamers or a mods account would get hacked and a bunch of personal data gets leaked or stolen.

  2. So after years of chatting to others in whispers with no complaints Twitch is now trying to make me verify my account for some strange reason which I will not do as you have not proven yourself safe with personal data and I also do not wish to give you my phone number etc. This is a gross overstep for little gain as people who want to contact people in whispers to be awful or create fake accounts can just create new accounts with fake numbers or some such not to mention phone numbers that are not accepted by twitch…

  3. Please remove new unnecessary whisper restriction that demands phone number. Why did twitch do this (never had problem before today)? My account is verified and I'm in the midst of preparing my stream. Now I'm locked out and cannot do anything. This is a nightmare as my contacts are now uncontactable. What genius decided this was a good idea? Fire them now.

  4. I do not own a cellphone. I have been on Twitch over 12 years and this new safety feature effectively made it so that I cannot post a whisper to anyone. I think users should be able to have an option to click that enables recieving all whispers from the user they select.

  5. You can accidentally click on the delete button for a whisper and because there is no confirmation, the message just goes away with no way of getting it back

  6. Since Twitch requires users to verify a mobile number in order to whisper or even reply to whispers, it would be nice for Twitch to advise people who send a whisper to someone who does not have a verified phone number that the user will not be able to reply to their messages. This way the users who do not have a verified phone number can have some sort of auto reply to let the other user know that they won't be able to reply.

  7. The idea would be whisper messages delete like snapchat.

    Currently users can be baited into whispers from people in their chat who "want to help" if there's some sort of issue.

    They then have your username in their whispers regardless of blocking.

    So if you experience trolling, harassment or stream sniping this is still very doable regardless of blocking. Any username change appears as if they are unblocked.

    After sending a messaged to support I received the typical response and directed to managing harassment.

    Again i point to the above...Even if you block someone and change your name it's still…

  8. Twitch has disabled me from using Whispers. Twitch will not send a SMS verification code to either of my two phones. I choose my phone services because of affordability. Twitch believes because I live on a budget I deserve to be banned from using Whispers. I am now forced to ignore friends in community chats who whisper me.

  10. Hello!
    i´m a Moderator on a bigger Channel and get Whispers alot. some of them have questions and some of them tend to write annoying stuff. But i just wanna have the feature to just deactivate Whisper for a specific user rather than blocking him, cause as a moderator it would be bad if i block him, so i wouldn´t see stuff hes posting in the chat anymore

    Shortly

    All users can Whisper to you -> you want to leave your whispers open -> Block specific users only to send you no whispers anymore

    hope this is understandable :D

    Kind…

  12. PLEASE make a feature to search whispers for keywords. Whispers are so hard to go through currently. This feature would be especially useful for mods if they're trying to find whispers from someone regarding a certain chatter being rude/disrespectful/etc.

  13. -Users that don't have a verified account can only watch the stream
    -Verified users with phone/email verification (if possible make it both) will be allowed to chat or whisper

    This is to avoid trolls to make new accounts easily to harass streamers, it wouldn't really stop them but it will take them time to create new accounts and maybe they will just get exhausted (prayge).

    It might also become a hassle for viewers with make and verify their account, but I know they will appreciate Twitch if they know that you are also protecting their favorite streamer.

    I had seen…

  14. Twitch staff here. A streamer mentioned they'd love if there would be an option to have whispers from their Mods to appear in their chat and be highlighted. The streamer mentioned they use pop-out chat and primarily uses the chat of engagement, and this would help them keep the flow of their stream without having to pause and click through the Whispers window to see specific messages.

    In addition, maybe add an option for everyone to toggle having whispers mirrored to a chat if they are watching a stream with the @USERNAME and a notice it is a whisper. Just…

  15. Add a Prompt for when Users have Whispers Blocked/Turned OFF. Don't provide a box to type in, at all. e.g. just a simple notification a user has whispers off when a mod clicks 'Quick Whisper'

    Many moderators try to do modding in whispers when possible to avoid derailing or subduing chat -- as in-chat moderation can put a damper on good vibes or 'invite' viewers to feel as if they should participate. However, the recent surge in numbers of viewers who have whispers turned off means we may spend a couple minutes typing out a whisper only for it to…

  16. I was recently chatting with some other streamers and we agreed that this would be great.

    When streaming, the streamer will often have the Chat popped out in their browser. But there's no way to know if a new Whisper came in. There's no way, through Twitch, to find out if someone is trying to reach you privately. And in a busy Chat, even if they try to reach you publicly, you can miss it.

    It would be great if the little Whispers icon were at the top or bottom of the popped out chat, and if it could have…

  17. The sending of spam messages via whisper has become a serious problem on Twitch in Portuguese, in view of this, I suggest the creation of a filter that retains suspicious spam messages in some other box.

    Generally the messages follow the same writing pattern with spammers asking for a donation of money to their bank accounts under the guise of experiencing financial hardship, so I believe a simple AI should be able to retain most of the unwanted messages.

    An option to block specific terms in the spam filter would also be welcome.

  19. add an option to send private messages to people in chat so you don't have to open the person's whisper box in the live chat itself.

  20. I don't check twitch often for messages. I would love to have the ability to block getting whispers completely. not just stop it for strangers (people i don't follow or sub to) but from everyone.

    I've had people i follow use it as a way to be like "join my discord" which personally freaks me out, then i've had people get mad that i didn't see their whisper while i'm streaming.

    i wish i could just block it fully so I didn't have to deal with it anymore.
