  1. The chat replies feature may be cool for some specific reasons, but most of the time is not helpful. The thread it creates is also hard to see compared to normal chat messages. It would be nice to be able to toggle this feature on or off. Similar to how you can turn off nigh mode

    We’ve released an update today that addresses some of the feedback in this thread:

    • You can now once again highlight and copy messages for easy translation, raid message organization, and general copypastas
    • Clicking into the chat will not immediately open the reply function. On hover, the reply button in the top right of the message will initiate the reply

    As it’s been a few days, curious to hear whether the initial feelings and experiences have changed!

    Update: https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1294378462451572746?s=20

  2. Completely get rid of the chat replies/thread feature and end the experiment.

  3. Please get some community feedback on how this should be added, modifications to chat greatly impact every community.

    This idea makes sense, and I welcome and encourage it. This will be useful for mods and broadcasters to easily show they've responded to a question or concern, group bot replies and overall improve the chat experience, but its current implementation is messy. Consider reviewing the user experience that this holds. Although early and only a snippet of what the FrankerFaceZ maintainer has done, here is a prime example of a much better integration you could have:

  4. 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.

  5. 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,…

  6. 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

  7. Current chat replies is a neat idea, but the in-chat visuals shows the reply seemingly only to the original poster of the thread, instead of the previous poster/actual user that one is replying to.

    Showing the actual person you're replying to makes it less confusing. [Affects when the thread has more than 1 reply.]

  8. 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!

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.)

  13. 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.

  14. Instead of the icon and text that says "in reply to..", put back the @ in the reply and just click to show the message they're replying to. This could allow the feature to be used but also keep chat looking the way it was, so no need to toggle or disable as others have suggested. The current formatting can make replies look like standalone messages in a quick chat and looks a bit messy in general. Messages leading with @username were clearly part of a conversation before, and I've always wished I could just click the line to see…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
