  1. When doing a stream that puts me far away from my computer, I like to use my iPad with the popout chat to read chat. But the "top donators" badge at the top, and the chat box at the bottom take up nearly 1/3 of my screen real estate (especially when scaling up font). I'd prefer the ability to go into the chat settings for the popout and hide them, even if I need to do it manually every time. This is easily solvable with a toggle that runs a tiny bit of Javascript hiding the divs.

  2. It's cool to be able to add someone as a friend by clicking their name in the chat, but it would be nice to be able to follow their channel as well.

  3. I think it would be cool if we could use 'Escape' on keyboard to exit out of chat, returning focus to the main Twitch window.

    This is because, when I click in chat, then want to full screen using 'F', I have to click back on the main Twitch window, then press 'F'; instead of just 'Escape', 'F' which would be much more elegant.

    Thanks

  6. In the beginning it is difficult for little streamers to keep an eye on chat, games and other things. So that you don't miss any chat messages, a widget that could play a notification tone for new chat messages would be great to make it easier to start chat interaction.

  7. I'll explain my idea with an example. I'm watching HasanAbi at the election night and I'm curious about what Turkish people think. It would be great if I could've filter the chat by selecting a language! Or we can improve this idea and add some tags to filter (like common interest, tags). Especially when there are more than a couple of thousands of people in the chat it just flows too fast and it's really not useful.

  8. Fuzzy search would make it easier to find and tag other users/streamers in chat, or to search for other users/streamers in the twitch search bar.

    For example, if im watching @itsHafu, and in the chat I enter "@hafu" the results should show a fuzzy search results including users such as @itsHafu.

  9. I think for the Chat logs there should be a feature to search by date instead of having to endlessly scroll up and waiting for twitch to load the logs

  10. It happens that lots of people in a crowded chat are telling the streamer all the same thing. And the streamer still doesn't notice.
    One of the reasons might be because there are so many messages and emotes passing by every second.
    Let's say 25 people write the same line. For example: "Watch your bag". It would be very helpful for the streamer (and comforting for the chat) if this line is set apart on top of the chat for a while. Bolded or with a bigger font for 15 or 20 seconds. This time can maybe even be adjustable…

  11. Problem is that when user wants to write large message and there is 500 symbols allowed for one message, they want to send 500+ symbols but send 500.
    Idea - colorize pre-message into orange if the message length exeeds allowed length and stop printing of any extra length symbol.

  12. So I was watching a stream and an idea popped up in my head. What if I was able to watch streams and chat with my own country. Lets say I am from Bosnia and watching a stream in the US and it would be cool if you could just change the region of the chat to chat with your own people. A dropdown menu where you can select wheter you want to se All countries or a certain one. That would be really cool tho.

  14. When you are reading the chat and see a lot of @johndoe "Ah ah ah good one", we are curious about what john doe said and was so funny. To avoid the scroll, it should be possible to have an automatic scroll to the last message of John Doe by clicking on his name and select "see last message". Considering the scenario up here, his nickname will be present a lot (so not only be able to click on his name when he speaks, but also when he is mentioned).

  15. Expand the chat choice awards by platformizing it as something that can be done at the channel level with channel-specific categories and awards as well (could generate a ton of engagement). It would be a ton of fun for smaller and mid-sized channels to have things like favorite game of the past year and exciting games for the coming year (using a list of games that the channel sets). Other channel-specific awards - best moments (great for incentivizing users to tag highlights throughout the year and for surfacing them later), favorite channel moderator, best community member, fail of the year,…

  16. Implement some kind of keyword tagging system similar to a # that will sort chat bubbles that have either a user generated tag or that Twitch can determine to be relevant to certain situations that occur within a live chat. Picture a College Note style organization but tailored to twitch conversations with the idea above. This will help Twitch Streamers to not have to repeat themselves and also keep them organized and enable them the ability to see trends within their chat , and helps the end user find relevant ways to interact with the audience they are a part…

  18. By clicking on the chat user’s nickname, a menu appears where you can contact the user, and his nickname will be copied to your chat message. A more convenient way to access than using the @ symbol and spelling a nickname.

  19. It would be cool if Twitch had a clap feature. For instance, beneath chat and next to channel points, there could be some button that could be spammed that would contribute to a clap meter. As more viewers click the button, the greater the meter shines (maybe from green to red, with red indicating high activity). I think this would be an additional way for viewers to express their hype.
