  1. Make the mod Highlight mark replies as mentions. At the moment, they don't do anything.

  2. Remove the "see the conversation" button when someone has replied to one of our messages on a chat and add the "reply" button all the time, because for everyone it is more useful and ergonomic to be able to reply to someone one who answers us to continue the discussion than having to retype his @pseudo and start a new conversation every 2 messages. At the UX level it would be more preferable and intuitive.

  3. I would love to have the chance to give some reaction to an another user message. This could help even the streamer to select wich messages are worth to read and answer (if it is a question).

  4. Allow direct reply to a chat from muliple people , including a count for reactions - This is a major drawback for DJs streaming on Twitch vs Facebook live. The thread is more personal and hypes comments with counting of similar reactions.

  5. When you start typing a message in chat that is intended as a reply to a thread, but forget to click the thread reply button, your message is cleared once you do click the reply button.

    This seems like bad UX, why not just keep the message value in place.

    Steps to produce -

    1. Type a message
    2. Click reply to a thread
    3. Watch the message disappear and need to be re-typed or copied and pasted.

  6. Blocked users should be hidden when others reply to the blocked user.

    Instead of the chat showing "User reply to user2", it should be "User reply to blocked" or "User reply to blocked (click to show)"

    As this would be more beneficial to the user who doesn't want to see the other user who is blocked from showing in chat completely.

  8. Colored thread would make them easier to identify. Right now the feature isn't very friendly to use, we have to click on a button to reply and/or get full context.
    If the thread messages' background color are all the same we don't have to open it to get full context, we can see it in the chat at a glance.
    And once the thread goes off-screen the color becomes available again for a new thread.

  9. So in xQcOW's chat, there was a thread created. We would write ''Chatting'' before every message. We kept it going for more than 3h, still going. I wish we could get full logs of the thread, but it's limited to just maybe 50 messages. Also, it's very laggy to send messages, the timing has to be right so that the message actually goes to the thread.

  10. Hey! I was just chilling in one of my friends chats, he averages around 1k viewers and I'm a mod there. I was joking around and said Retweet ( @usersname ) Message that they said. I think it would be a brilliant feature if you could actually retweet a message from someone in the chat. But of course there would have to be a limit of how much you can retweet, similar to how spamming works. The mods would have control over if the retweet is approved based on if the viewer is spamming retweets. View it like someone is…

  11. Some streamers have the thread where you can reply to the chatter. However, some don't have the thread, so I think it'll be much useful to have this settings enabled & it'll be much more convenient rather than @-ing the user & the topic you're trying to reply to.

  12. What if you did some sort of optional break out room (like Zoom does) in Twitch chat. I feel like with larger streamers it is very difficult for users to interact and stay involved, and small breakout rooms could make people feel more interaction. Lots of questions still for how it would logistically work, like how many people in rooms, how to moderate video/chats. I have lots of ideas about this but I'm not giving them to you unless you give me 1 million dollars.

  13. Blocked peoples' messages not showing in chat is very ideal. However, when other people reply to them with the new feature, I can see their messages. I would like to not see their messages at all. (It doesn't matter if I don't click on the thread because it shows a preview.)

  14. i dont know whether this been mention or thought of before while the new replies work smooth and easy but there still be a chance the replyer would not see the replies in "afk" mode or miss it due to massive spam , what happen then , the reply would be deleted after it reach the chat line limit . could you guys make it so when reply is about to go over the limit be sent to the whisper inbox . of course there will should be few options for individuals person to optimization based off their needs

  15. When replying to users, an individual is required to remove their hand from the keyboard to the mouse to click on the message of the user.
    For a smoother replying experience, more in-line with the current practice of using '@', I would suggest offering '@@[user]' to reply to the thread containing the last message of that user. If there is no last message, this would default to '@' behaviour.
    This update would improve accessibility for users that have difficulty using a mouse and also facilitates ease-of-use for those without accessibility requirements. Overall I believe this would improve the utility of,…

  16. While I really like the Chat Replies, I think that I agree with the comments in https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310201-chat-messaging/suggestions/41117761-ability-to-turn-off-chat-reply-threads-feature saying that it can become really confusing and hard to moderate.

    I think that in addition to that feature, there should be another option to limit Chat Replies to only the streamer / moderators as this would be extremely valuable in cases where there are Q&A sessions or where streamers want their moderation team to collate responses and maintain context of the response.

    Thanks again, Twitch Team!

  17. I like this feature as it allows me to see what the person ,another person replied to, said. It gives needed context and means I don't have to waste time scrolling up trying to find the original message. Although one thing to improve is that you need to click on message first in order to select and copy text which is a tad inconvenient. Other than that, this is a great much needed feature

  18. Making the chat not lag so you don’t post something randomly in chat and so you can see the chat in real time instead of having to refresh the app because chat gets stuck causing you to miss out on replies and other comments

  19. If you want to make it easier for users to follow a conversation (which is a good idea, even if this implementation seems messy), let their @ mentions be a separate tab that they can click into and see, rather than cluttering the main chat experience.
