  1. Why not enable the ability to search for streamers based on their listed, scheduled times? Allow the user to input the days/times they tend to watch streams and then recommend them streamers that best match that scheduling. If they don't select it, you could automate it based on viewing data.

    This improves discoverability for streamers and also benefits viewers by making it easier to find people they can reliably watch.

  2. Currently the top views are in the top of the list for followed channels. In categories it is the same way. With disabilities we often can't stream the hours or consistently stream like those that do. So finding a better way to be discovered will help those with accessibility needs. We have a voice but sometimes we are not found due to current set up.

    It will also make it safer for other streamers that are not disabled. As many people give out bad advice to just constantly stream such as to not work or sleep. That streaming to be…

  3. Implement a new search system with predefined and/or user defined tags like #lol #csgo #kappa #girlgamer #familyfriendly #twitch etc. It would be nice for a channel to have a handful of tags to identify itself.

  5. Search options like Google, Exact keyword, contains etc.

    Also an idea is filters, like platform, time zone, game, country etc.

  6. Hey All! I'm just wondering if anyone agrees with this, and hopefully will become a Site Feature.

    Right... Twitch... Please... I'm loving the new changes you've put in Place with the most recent UI... but you're missing one thing.. Searching for titles. As meaningless as it sounds, it'd be a great feature.

    For example if i went to twitch now and typed "Horror" in the search bar, only peoples past Vods would come up. Same for if someone went to go search up "[PC]".. wanting to watch a specific Platform.

    Someone who's currently live with "Horror" in their title (Which…

  7. Okay, so here's something that happens with me and gives me a lot of frustration in my stream.

    Scenario 1:

    I love to stream some good ol' PS2 games, like Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Onimusha, etc. Those games exist in Twitch Database, so, when I stream them, I put them games on the Category/Game tab. Then, I go for that "tags" section, and add the Retro tag on my stream, because it's an old game.

    First issue: This tag will not show my old Prince of Persia stream in the Retro category, BECAUSE my game/category is... Prince of…

  8. For Portuguese speakers, it would be great to have a way to find streamers from Brazil, Portugal and other countries separately. As a Portuguese myself, I am often looking to support Portuguese streamers, but they are hard to find when you filter by language, as the bigger ammount of users from Brazil, means I am usually finding only Streamers from Brazil.

  9. Search streamers by their hardware. Sometimes, especially these days, when we want to buy new hardware like GPU, we search for some reviews, but sometimes the reviews aren't enough and, we want to see how the hardware behaves daily.
    So, if I could search for streamers who use a specific GPU it would be great.

  10. When I write half of the name of one streamer, it does not go out to me, but another channel goes to me on another streamer!

  11. I've joined Raids and I've followed the streamers. Rinse and repeat. Now after months of doing this, I've amassed quite the number of streams followed. The search tab is essentially a new discover tab, and that would be great if i were new to twitch, but Struggling to find channels I've already followed is a major pain and unless I type it in correctly, i'm most likely unable to find the channel I'm looking for especially if they have a fairly long and complicated channel name.

    The option I hope to get implemented.
    Followed Channels should be the first things…

  12. Recently am having alot of trouble finding "live" streams in my search results. I like to search streams on their titles, such as "pc builds" etc. Now most, if not all, my results are user names, and continually having to scroll to find any live stream is tedious.
    Please change the way search functions back to like it was, where I could search for stream titles, not users.
    Thanks

  14. Incorporate the ability to narrow down or only display broadly available titles. Searchable by genre as well. (i.e. Horror Broadly Available) AND ability to search by region.

    OR, better yet...

    Allow titles to play based on STREAMER. Yes, viewers still MUST have prime linked to Twitch, however, viewers should not be blocked from watching a stream because the title is not available in their region. They are still watching a STREAMER'S channel. Watch Parties should be STREAMER based. Eliminate the region locks all together. Viewers are still paying for their prime service and proving that by linking. So Amazon is…

  15. Make clips searchable by keyword. As it is, clips can only be sorted by top views. This is really clunky and inefficient.

  16. I want to be able to use the "tags" system in the search bar to avoid certain streams. For example: I live in Spain but im not native of this country and i really hate having Spanish streams flood my main page the moment i open up twitch. Just give me the option to use tags to avoid certain streams. #spanish, #cosplay, #depression, etc. These are for the ones i want to avoid, and the longer i stay on twitch the more "#" i will ban

  17. Please add an option to search for VODs of specific streamers.
    One of my favorite streamers has a lot of vods, but in the twitch app it is almost impossible to find them via search.
    Can you implement a channel specific search on the streamers page?
    It is possible on PC but not in the twitch app

  19. If I look up the "Science & technology" category, I think it would be nice if the search "Science and technology" would also match this. I notice that if I use the word "and" the Science and Technology category doesn't show up as a suggestion due to the "&" and "and" mistmatch.

  20. Please add a page to click for a display of videos based on the word/s you have searched for. The current system of scrolling within the search bar is simply not good enough to look for a specific video in the seas of content now populating twitch. This would provide a user optimization in searching for content.
