/announce doesn't show message on mobile
the message used with /announce does not render at all on mobile. If it just didn't highlight then that's one thing, but a mod message that no mobile users can see is worthless.
I was eager to utilize the feature, but without mobile users being able to see the message /announce does more harm than good and I can't use it
Shouldn't mobile users and desktop users have the same experience?
Let's fix this Twitch.
Same thing seems to have happened for /shoutout
The /announce (along with /announceblue, /announcegreen/ announceorange, and /announcepurple) command does not render any message on the Android version of the Twitch Mobile app.
This has been discovered after several members in chat, who use an Android mobile device, have not been able to see any announcements being posted in chat by the broadcaster or moderators. Thus, our confusion as to why some in chat are missing important messages.
This has been tested on a Samsung tablet running Android 12 using Twitch v13.8.0(c) for Android, at time of submitting this idea.
1.) Using a web browser on a computer, open a channel in moderator view.
2.) View the same channel on an Android tablet running the latest Twitch Mobile app from the Google Play Store
3.) Enter in a few regular messages into chat.
4.) Enter in first /announce into chat.
5.) Enter a few more regular messages, including a message indicating a message will be shown below it.
6.) Enter in a second /announce into chat.
7.) Observe behavior
The Twitch Mobile app on Android does not show any of the /announce messages in chat. Screenshot of results: https://i.imgur.com/mgpUdBG.png
Still not fixed august 2022, my viewer tried 134287 commands before telling me it's not working. please @twitch fix that <3 pogchamp
Still broken end of august.
I got the feeling, that this uservoice page is just a trashcan for us. We throw all our problems and ideas in and then...nobody will do anything for years.
Also /announcepurple and such colors are not working with IRL bots. Just if you type in directly into the chat....not fixed.
Still not fixed july 2022
When a streamer or mod uses the /announcement command the text does not show in mobile chat.
This is a pretty big thing tbh which needs fixing bad!
