  1. To help reduce the blatant and increasing violations of the harassment policy on Twitch, you should implement a new feature that allows a channel to prevent users from participating in their chat if the account is under a certain age, which could be specified specified by the channel.

    Currently, it's easy for a user to create temporary email and Twitch accounts and harass a live streaming account under the guise of anonymity. This would add a much needed barrier to entry without requiring a user to follow or subscribe to be apart of a channel. The code currently exists for…

    Hello everyone! Apologies for missing this post - but good news! Now creators can enable phone/email verification for a designated amount of time to verify their chatters. 

    You can find more information in our blog: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/09/29/securing-your-chat-with-phone-and-email-verification/ 

    Thank you all for the feedback!

  2. Some creators will notice a new first-time chatter highlight is now available in chat. This feature lets creators and their mods identify and welcome newcomers in chat to their community when appropriate. The highlight is only available to creators and their mods in chat and is not displayed to the rest of your community. This feature is in a limited release, and we will monitor feedback before making it more widely available.

    Creators and their mods are enrolled in the limited release automatically, and they can toggle the feature on and off in chat settings under "First Time Chat Highlight."

  3. I think it would be beneficial to allow mods to highlight messages in chat without the use of channel points, to allow them to broadcast messages to the chat an unlimited amount of times. Another related idea is mods being able to pin a message at the top of chat, in a similar position to the hype train. These could work as "/broadcast (message)"

  4. We have many statuses in a chat, Regular Viewer; Moderator; Global Moderator; Broadcaster; Admin and Staff.

    A level between Viewer and Moderator would be nice to have without a bot to do so, known as "Regulars".

    Regular status would ideally be given to those who frequent your stream. If you have a Moderation bot, the moderation bot could ignore if a Regular would spam a lot of emotes yet not trusted to have full moderation powers.

    Regular status would come with a chat badge, being a smiley face. The streamer can individually turn the badge on or off in their…

  5. It would be nice if companies could add verified dev twitch accounts associated with their games, and if the dev's were in chats of streams playing those games they could get a special game dev badge in chat to show that.

  6. Add a follow button to the in chat user interface. We now have the ability as a streamer or viewer to add friends, whisper, gift sub, see previous messages etc. but no ability to follow directly from chat. It would save multiple clips and the additional need of opening another tab. Personally I have other streamers come into my chat and I want to follow them right then while I'm live.

    Hey everyone!


    We’re happy to announce that this feature has been added! Thank you, as always, for the suggestion, and do let us know of any feedback you have for us in the future. Have a great day!

  7. I've been in several streams where the devs of the game appeared in chat and talked to and answered questions with everybody. It is impossible to tell that they are a dev of any game unless they, the streamer, and other chatters constantly say so. We need a badge to distinguish they are a game dev so that they are easily recognizable. VIP badges aren't enough as they don't tell why the person is a VIP.

  8. We’re testing more ways to make it easier for creators to recognize new and returning viewers in chat with additional chat highlights for Mentions, Mods, and Subs. You can toggle individual highlights on or off to focus on a specific type of viewer you want to recognize, like highlighting important messages from your mods or showing love to your subs.

    These highlights will not be visible to viewers in chat.

    Note: This feature is a limited experiment and we will monitor feedback before deciding to make these highlights more widely available. You may see additional highlight options as we experiment…

    This is now live for all creators! 

    Chat highlights make it easier for streamers to recognize new and returning viewers in chat with chat highlights for first time chatters, mentions, mods, subs, and VIPs. These highlights will not be visible to viewers in chat.
    Note: We will continue adding and experimenting with additional highlights, including raiders and returning chatters. We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on new highlights or how we can make existing highlights even better. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

  9. Add a setting that lets us see the date and time whispers were received/sent.

  10. Example: If I am in a channel and then move from desktop to phone app after loading channel in the phone app I am presented with a fresh clear chat. The feature that could be added is where even if I move from desktop to phone app and still going back to the channel. I should be able to see all the conversations and chat logs that occurred during the move from desktop to phone app.

  11. I mod for channels that use multiple languages in chat and I can no longer simply triple click a message to invoke a translation as the text of a message is no longer selectable. I now have to single click it, move the mouse (not as easy with my disability) to locate the actual reply section and then triple click to translate. If you will persist with this reply feature, at least make the original text selectable too, whilst still allowing clicking outside of the original text but within the text box's bounds to invoke a reply. I imagine other…
