[Test] First Participation Highlight in Creator/Mod Chat
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."
We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions here. We look forward to hearing your feedback!
We are happy to announce that the First-Time Chatter Highlight is now available to all creators and mods! You can learn more about this feature at the below link. Thank you all for your feedback!
It would be great to have a highlight on every viewer's first chat message in the stream. This will make it easier to find back messages of new viewers coming in. It could be added to the existing highlight menu.
Would love to have this feature. See it in some streams I mod for and I really like it.
Amazing feature, make chat great again !
i love this, could i please get it for my channel? peepoShy
I have the option enabled but don't see it on my own stream, but I do see it on others and think it is very useful
This really helps new viewers feel welcome, I really like using this feature and hope it becomes a thing for for every streamer!
I really like this feature !
Excellent feature. It reeeally helps identify and acknowledge new viewers. I use it all the time
I want this feature! Make it widely available!
So far this implementation has done wonders for my mods and I. It automatically makes us pay more attention to the new viewer and the message they have sent. It has helped find trolls or otherwise negative comments and aided in banning or reprimanding the viewer, but also been able to give a positive first impression to them.
I want this !!
it is a step in the right direction. But to really compete with youtube, Twitch needs to create a new (better) way to chat. I think chat groups could help slow down chat, and having a separate "top comments" area could help Streamers react to comments most viewers upvoted.
It would also help fight Spam.
Has been a pleasant feature I've enjoyed!
I love this feature!
This feature is class.
Wonderful feature. Lets me great people for the first time very quickly and differentiate from a returning viewer and new viewer
Love this feature from being a mod for other creators I know, just wish I had access to it myself as a creator!
Absolutely loving this feature! Please keep it, so helpful.
This feature is really good ! Very helpful for me and my mods !
This is a really feature! Is it available to all creators now? I am able to see it one of of the creators I mod for but not another ans he would like it is his channel too
