  1. As a Minecraft streamer, the Minecraft community recently with servers like QSMP bridging different speaking language communities with live translation, there are a lot of different communities crossing paths for the first time! The only issue is, many streamers (including myself) only speak 1 language, and the mods also speak one language, so any messages of other languages get deleted, as the streamer can't read them and the mods can't moderate them, so it would be AWESOME to be able to be able to see a live translation in chat! This could work by each individual person setting their preferential…

  2. Live Chat translation. I understand there is a variety of languages out there that people speak and only certain channels will allow x amount of languages due to chat moderation and such. But it would be a cool feature for mods to be able to use or for chat users/streamers to be able to interact with the community more! Instead of just saying we don’t allow that language or so the user doesn’t have to translate it using a 3rd party app. Ik there is extensions you can use but would be nice feature for twitch to have. Amazon did…

  3. When chat is put into emote-only mode it says so above the chat input bar for everyone whenever it gets enabled. Clicking it shows the info box that explains what it is.
    For subscriber-only mode, this message is shown to people that aren't subscribed and in follower-only mode it is shown to people that are currently not following.

    Moderators bypass all of those restrictions but are only shown when emote-only chat is enabled in this way. It is easy to forget about chat being in follower-only mode after, for example, counteracting a bot raid with follower-only mode.

    For moderators it…

  4. When someone does a shoutout and it appears on a streamer's dashboard that they were shouted out on, it would be amazing if we could click on that dashboard request and jump to that part of their vod automatically. Sometimes, someone shouts us out and we are not on Twitch at the time. It would be very helpful to see what they said and to check them out. This is particularly useful if we have not been introduced before.

    This could also be helpful to go back in after people raid as well to make clipping easier if the reaction…

  5. For some reason chat replay for vods is not available in embedded experiences. Making chat replay possible for vods would make the embedded experiences better and richer.

  6. Add to Twitch iPad the same Chat Overlay Customizations that the Twitch iPhone has.

    On the iPhone Twitch app, while watching a stream, you can turn your phone to landscape mode, click settings, and there is an option to click Chat Overlay Customizations such as Adjust Overlay Opacity, change the chat vertical position, and chat horizontal position.

    There is also an option on the iPhone to change the way the Chat Switching Shortcut button works to toggle between Chat Overlay, Column Chat, and No Chat. This feature is not on the iPad.

  7. Hello,

    My suggestion involves a small rework of the current broadcast time (stream uptime). I think it would be nice to separate it by category and then display the total uptime, for example:

    [Game Icon] 1:30:00 [Game Icon] 1:00:00 [Total] 2:30:00

    It doesn't necessarily have to be shown directly on the stream interface; it could be displayed as a tooltip on mouse hover or when clicked. This way, viewers could see how much time the streamer has been playing or doing activities in a specific category.

    I have created an example image for reference (tooltip on mouse hover)

  8. I accidentally banned a normal chatter when banning a bot that was above them in chat and despite me unbanning them, they still got consequences from it (like getting a suspicious user warning on them in other channel's chats or any other things I may not be aware).

    I'd love if there was an unban that wasn't a "second chance" to a user but a complete clear of a potential human error from a streamer which gave no consequences to the victim of the accidental ban!

  9. Create a new "Raid message" field as part of the "Edit Stream Info" area. If filled out and saved, activate a new button on the landing page for the raided streamer so that raiders can click it to paste the message into chat and immediately send it with one tap. Include this button for the streamer as well.

  10. As a user, I would like to connect more with my favorite streamer or any other streamer I like. We could achieve this by implementing a voice donation button. This means my voice would be recorded through my phone's microphone and posted as a voice note so the streamer can hear my voice and connect more. This could generate monetary benefits. However, I understand that this could lead to abuse, harassment, or vulgarities. Therefore, artificial intelligence could be used. Just as there are AI systems that transcribe, there should be one that can establish context and identify which voice notes…

  11. Currently, the /followed command only tells the user the date they followed and the number of years they've followed for

    To line this up better with 3rd-party verients and make it more practical, This should also include the number of months and days too, for example: "2 Years, 7 Months, and 10 days " instead of just "2 Years"

    Bonus points if there's a non-intrusive way to share this, preferable without the user simply just saying "I did /followed and it's x amout of time"

    Though twitch's implimentation is likely to just be something like /lurk does, which is effectively…

  13. Objective: Introduce a native, fully interactive, customizable full-screen chat overlay to enhance the Twitch user experience.

    Current Issue: Third-party extensions for full-screen chat are not universally adopted, which leads streamers to embed chat in their broadcasts, detracting from the full-screen content experience.

    Proposed Feature:

    A native, interactive full-screen chat overlay, adjustable for transparency and screen positioning.
    The ability for viewers to toggle the chat overlay on/off based on personal viewing preferences.

    Key Advantages:

    Delivers a seamless full-screen experience with interactive chat, a core part of Twitch's live-streaming.
    Unifies the viewer experience across all streams, ensuring everyone can use the chat…

  15. Okay so I think we're all aware Twitch says no to multi chat, I think it's a highly stupid and parasitic approach to maintain a healthy followership, let's face the facts, YouTube crushes Twitch.TV hands down in every feasible way in terms of daily use and volume. Twitches pie is shrinking, whether they or anyone else wants to say it, they now have competitors.

    Why on earth isolate the YouTube community from participating in a live audience or any other platform for that matter. I for one would have never found twitch had it not been for YouTube nor 90%…

  16. The chat warning feature is useful but could use some tweaks.
    1) Show the fact that a warning was issued to a user in all moderator's chat feed (currently it only shows in the Mod Actions pane in moderator view).
    2) Multiple moderators can warn the same user. If a user is still under an unacknowledged warning, it make sense that the 2nd mod gets a "This user already has a warning they have not yet acknowledged" message or something similar. Since they can not chat until they acknowledge, it cannot be for a subsequent transgression anyway.

    edit: It also…

  17. Implement hiding of channel emotes in emote selector and/or ability to reorder them. We are subbed/gift subbed to many channels and bloating the emote selector. This allows users to hide unused channels or reorder them to reduce time it takes looking for emotes and improving chat experience by not missing a moment to respond due to looking for emotes.

  18. We need a better way to handle all the "Best viewers on" and "Cheap viewers at" bots. So here's my proposal:

    1. Add the ability for a streamer and their mods to mark a viewer as "trusted", that way those viewers can put links in chat.
    2. A "trusted viewer" could have a channel-bound badge, similar to VIP, that could be customized like a Sub Badge.

    3. If someone not marked as "trusted" sends a message with an URL, it should not show their message to others but shown to mods with a note and ask them whether to Allow, Deny, or Report…

  19. would it be possible to have a moderator only chat integrated into mod view ? this is so moderators and the broadcaster can talk to each other if needed to help keep the community safe ? often mods especially in my channel ban people and the other mods are unaware of why it has happened etc i just think this could be a great feature if it was added ??

  20. Add a free Tier 1 subscription (the same as Prime Gaming) to a favourite channel, as paying €11.99 to support a channel at all can be an incentive to subscribe to Twitch Turbo.
