  1. Hello all, rather simple idea.

    Hovering over a hyperlink in chat would temporarily pause scrolling. In some high-volume chat clicking a small link in chat feels like a reaction time minigame.

    I understand you can scroll to pause chat but the ability to hover over, chat will be paused, and click conveniently would be really slick.

    Thanks!

  2. When tapping on the view counter, see number of unique chatters chatting now in chat (or number of users who send a message in the last minute) interesting for viewers and streamers, seeing it live. Since viewers does not correspond to number of people engaging with streamer or number of people streamer could engage with)

  4. I'd like a (payed) feature to erase my chat history, which is viewable by channels based on my username. It's fine my chat history stays known to Twitch itself, but I'd like to start with a clean slate because my account is quite old and I've said things in the past in certain channels that I regret.

  6. Allow creators to limit the allowable characters to be used in chat based on the languages the creator specifies. Link the languages to Unicode codepages to not unfairly limit non-Latin based languages. This could help alleviate some of the issues found with hatespeech and the recent hate raids. Messages that are filtered based on this, could be thrown into automod queue, or straight up not sent at all.

  7. By default, the chat embed shows a "Animated Emotes can be disabled in Settings" message. It shouldn't. It's confusing for every chat members. It just just be a text box and the messages. This message could animate in when the first Animated Emote is shown, not before that.

  8. Could You add the possibility to reply to an existing reply in chat ?
    The “reply” feature is cool but I think it’s kind of limited in the fact You only can reply to one message.

  10. Add positive comment buttons on and off for the host to only read positive and ban all negative comments, it is either abusive, sexual, bully, or anything that relates to negative though.

  11. Make The In-Game Overlay adjustable to fit with different size configurations of monitor selections. It should be an adjustable slider to change the font and size of the entire in-game overlay. (This is regarding the Twitch Studio Beta app)

  12. In a busy stream the chat is completely useless. It is just a wall of emotes.
    It would be nice if the chat was mainly texts while emotes could be (optionally) stacked in the video view lower corner. So when something funny happens and people start sending emotes it would be a cool thing to have stacks at the bottom piling up.

  13. We can follow Twitch channels in which we don't wanna use the chat at all for more passive style (ie: big live events) and others in which the chat is a core part of our experience (ie: small streamers with a tight-knit community).

    The current behavior is for the chat to remember the last status between hidden/shown, no matter what channel you are on, I'd like it to be linked to the channel.

  14. Some viewers may notice prompts for key community events when chat is closed in web view and theater mode.  This feature lets users know they can participate in these events when chat is not visible.  By selecting the prompt, chat will open automatically and you can choose to participate in the event.  The prompts will not be visible on mobile or when watching in full screen.  

    This feature is in limited release and we are looking to collect feedback during this time.  We look forward to hearing from you!

    Hey there!

    When it comes to seeing people’s names in chat have you tried our ‘readable colors’ setting for chat? It’s located under chat settings > chat appearance > readable colors should be toggle-able. We implemented that so colors in chat would be more accessible for users.

    You can find more information about chat here: https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/chat-basics

  16. I think it would help a lot to reward loyal users to have a few seconds of spotlight after sending a message so they do not get lost amid the chat spam in big channels.

    If VIP user sends a message ALL chat messages pause for 5 seconds. Specially for mods... some kind of option to send a "Remarked Message" so maybe it has a 10s chat pause. That way certain information can come across during chat crazyness...
    If Tier 3 Sub sends a message all chat messages pause for 3 seconds.
    Even 1 second between messages would mean quite…

  17. Is it possible that you can make the chat log search easier for mods by letting us sort by old or new comment first, show only deleted messages, responded comments etc., and also let us search by specific words and dates? That would make the modding a lot easier. Thanks!

  18. Could twitch make a feature like showing chat moving from right to left on the screen, like a flying bullet. Some stream software like Huya and Douyu in China have made this successful and popular. That will not only make the chat more visable but also be a part of the screen show. I strongly recommend this feature!

  19. Have a Castor chat option to use the arrow key in the chat that allows you to scroll down chat comments 1 at a time. This way you can break away from chat to focus on content and easily pick up were you left off.

  20. I would love if Twitch could add something special for pride month! (Apart from the Pride emotes ofc!!!)

    So I was thinking, what if we were to add a chat appearance setting to change your name to rainbow during pride month? it would be absolutely adorable and a way for us to all come together as one!

    I don’t know if this would be possible, but it’s just an idea!
