  1. The browsing itself is great, I like that we can browse separate subcategories (for example in Gaming) like Shooter, Action & Adventure, Role Playing etc but it would be great if the shown streams weren't all the highest viewer counts. Yeah it increases the discoverability but only if you're in the top 5-10.

    Maybe there is a way to display random streams from that category/subcategory? A mix of different channels would be great so streamers with lower view counts don't disappear. Especially because expanding the subcategory only gives you a few more streams, not all of them. Normally we can…

  2. Add the ability to assign a priority to some of your followed channels to make them show up before channels with higher number of viewers.
    This could be achieved either by added those channels to a strict priority list (like auto-hosting feature has) or simply assigning a channel as "preferred" with a flag.
    A number of channels I prefer have a lot lower viewer numbers than the bigger channels I follow and better being able to see that they are live will improve the experience immensely.

  3. When browsing channels by game, make the top 3 or 5 channels listed random channels to help promote people who get less viewers.

    As it is now, people searching by game will notice more popular streamers right away and may never look beyond them. By adding a random spotlight at the top, it may drive more people to smaller channels instead of big channels pulling in even more viewers.

    Maybe change the spotlighted channels every 30 or 60 minutes, and add a special background behind them to stand out.

  4. Adding thumbnails to streams would be a great way for many viewers to come across streams that might be of interest to them!

  5. Implement a filter that would be present no matter what section of the site you are on allowing you to filter based on a primary language.

    1) Force a streamer to select a single primary language
    2) Allow streamer to select multiple secondary languages
    3) Implement a filter that would be at the top of any search/game/category listing...

    The filter should have two features.
    - Allow user to filter based on primary language ONLY
    - Allow user to sub-filter based on secondary languages optionally

    This accomplishes two goals.

    1) Allow the viewer to filter down to streamers that for the…

  6. I like the left side menu bar in the new UI. The only thing is that I always have to click "Load More" two or three times to see everyone who is online. I wish it would display everyone automatically.

  7. I only watch twitch streams to interact with the streamer live. Would it be possible for the team to add a button to hide rerun streams?

  8. When looking for people to raid, it's hard to tell who uses exclusive chats like Sub-only or Follower-only. I think this could easily be fixed by adding a little icon or label that marks ALL streams that are follower-only, sub-only, or open to everyone.

  9. Have the option to hide a stream you aren't interested in, such as streams in a language you don't understand.

    Recently, an add-on for this was discontinued and now having to see the flood of streamers i'm not interested in or simply can't understand is clogging up the game sections and making it hard for me to find new streams that i actually am interested in. I've especially noticed the 10s of Fortnite streamers i had previously blocked showing up on the front page, i find it almost unbearable to use Twitch currently because of this.

  10. I love being able to browse when I'm bored, but I would love to see an option to exclude (and save) certain tags.
    For example: "Sports game"
    I know that I will never be interested in Sports games, so having the option to exclude those would be so much easier than clicking each and every sports game to go "Not interested".
    Of course there would need to be an option to see and edit such a saved list, so people could remove tags from their exclusion list if they change their minds.

  11. Having a check box similar to the language check box that allows you to narrow down games/searches by console/platform would allow viewers to be more specific in their search.

  12. Can we please add more variety into the discovery page for example I'd like to be able to find streamers from the same country and platform as me for example It would be cool to be able to search for apex legend streamers from the uk that play on xbox and then be able to sort by least watched so I can support smaller streamers as well as collaborate! I feel the discovery page is missing a lot of filters like time zone, game, platform, view count, total time watched, alphabetical even filters on the following page would be great…

  13. Twitch should add a 'sort by' option when searching through streams. So when at the 'Following' section, you could have an option for 'Viewers Low-High, vice versa' or 'Most recently started'.
    When going through the directory, you could have 'Viewers Low-High, vice versa', 'Most recently', 'Subscribed channels ONLY', 'Non subbed channels only'.
    And for the music category people could list streams as 'Pop', 'Guitar', 'Alternative', 'Mixed', etc
    Also, on the front page of Twitch there should be an option to replace the featured streamer will a random followed stream or a stream of choice, when it's offline, it'll just show…

  14. I really enjoy the continue watching section. It seems to be missing on my browser currently. It's on my phone though.

    I have been keeping up with Worlds 2019 for League and that's an amazing feature to do so. Please bring back a great way to continue watching streams we may have clicked off from.

  15. Allow the user's stream to be viewed, before joining. This feature was available before, seemed to be removed awhile back. Please bring the view stream back.

  16. In Browse section, where there's the 3 dots under each categories that say "not interested" it could be really fun to also have "Always on top" option.

  17. Browsing Channels or looking at channels being Followed that are Live, have an option/filter to sort that includes currently Subscribed Channels listed first.

  18. On the browse page I can type in tags to refine the list of pages I'm being shown. However I can't use identity tags like "LGBTQIA+" and "bisexual" with category tags like "FPS", "Action", or "Shooter".

    Someone I follow was streaming under both "action" and "bisexual" tags. The browse page wouldn't let me enter both of those tags at the same time. I tried a few other combinations of tags that were both being used by a particular streamer and couldn't mix any of the category and identity tags they were using.

    I think people should be able to use…

  19. If you are going to 'sort based on viewing behaviour' and my most viewed channels are consistently at the bottom it looks more like an experiment in promoting partnered streamers instead of making it a more enjoyable experience for viewers. Please give anyone in the experiment the option to opt-out because it's actually making me unfollow people so the list looks less ridiculous.
