  1. Twitch is increasingly seeing success in large, full-time partnered streamers who seem to be growing in mainstream recognition and opportunities, but what is or can Twitch do to help dedicated small streamers get visibility to avoid a YouTube-like situation where it's only for the celebrities.

  2. Following up my comment on https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover/suggestions/42218083-pronouns-prefix

    It would be great if there were a dedicated Bio field in which we could put our pronouns, and a chat feature similar to the functionality provided by https://pronouns.alejo.io/ to display pronouns right alongside names in chat. This could also be used to populate a tag-like display near the streamer's name.

    Tags for streamers are a start, but I'd like to be able to consult someone's bio (if they choose to disclose pronouns) so I can refer to them properly when they're not currently streaming and be able to refer to viewers properly.

  3. Or give streamers and mods an option to just ban someone from chat, or ban them from watching the stream completely.

    This would be beneficial for multiple reasons, for example it would help battle stream sniping, instances of stalking, harrassment, etc.

    this has been voiced on twitter many times, time for it to be voiced here too

  4. Twitch automatically generates thumbnail images that are shown in the grid view when scrolling through a category at random times from the stream output .

    With most categories on Twitch the automatic thumbnail feature is just fine, as the content on stream matches up with what you want to show for discovery.
    However, with the "Software and Game Development" category that is not necessarily the case.

    The best way for people to discover me is to be interested in the game I make. Optimally the thumbnail would show me showing off the current state of the game and people that…

  5. There needs to be a biannual event where the entire Twitch community can celebrate and help uplift the hard work us small streamers put in when planning something special for our communities only to end up with little to no payoff.

    For this, it could be setup a set of benefits that are active to any streamer who has been streaming actively for six months atleast and is currently streaming below an average of 20 viewers:

    Outside of any contractual agreements with companies, (i.e, Nintendo Directs, major game reveal streams, etc) the entire Front Page is taken over by small…

  6. On September 24th I posted an idea for a new app for Twitch that would be like TikTok or YouTube for Twitch clips, this is because short form content is much more consumable.

    Upon discussion and feedback from streamers this should not be an app, since it would be much harder to get people to download and use the app. Instead this should be built right into the site already.

    On the front page where you see the 4 purple buttons that say Games, IRL, Music and ESports, there should be a 5th tab called Discover or maybe better yet…

  8. I would really like it if twitch would include our stream titles, vod title, and clip titles in the sites meta description so it shows up in (close to real time) google search.

    I recently browsed a stream on Trovo live and found that they do in real time syncing with google search twitch does not.

    By even reverse searching twitch stream titles nothing shows up in google search, this is frustrating.

    I would also like to be able to search in twitch for stream/clip,vod titles and have them show up in a search results page.

  9. Add to favorites, Twitch should have the option to add ''ADD TO FAVORITES'' channels to make it easier for users to watch smaller channels that don't appear at the top of channels! Also to find channels that we don't remember the name...

  10. For those who like to watch & Chat within multiple streams (often via team up situations or watching fave streamers online at the same time) instead of forcing people use sites like multistream/multitwitch, where the embedded streams get interrupted by a notice telling people to watch the stream on the original site, why not build a page where viewers can do just that, watch several of their favorite channels (2-4 or more) side by side where every view will be counted, channel points will be earned, ability to chat in any is accessible, and best of all, no interruption (with…

  11. Please check if the number of followers of a channel is realistic if that channel has NEVER streamed. Recently there is a spike of purchased followers used in hate-raids against LGBTQIA+ people. A lot of this could be automatically prevented or at least decreased in how bad it is by automatically putting channels with a high followercount despite never having streamed on a watchlist and not allowing them to raid until this is reviewed.

  12. Drop down categories to reduce the size of the list so that users don't have to "guess" or slog through the huge list of tags that is growing.
    The tags list SHOULD continue to grow, more tags == better.
    This poses an issue with searching for what is available. The growing list leaves users like myself guessing what words are available. Even if what we're thinking is in the list we might not have the exact right word in mind, meaning the only existing option we have is to scroll through the intimidating list that is available until we see…

  13. The Live Channels You Follow page is a hidden gem. I love it and I don't want it to go away or change.

    It would be great if there could be a button to switch to a Carousel Browse View, like the one on the home page, so I can quickly flip through my followed channels, seeing and hearing what they are up to.

    This would help me visit channels I forget about / have a bad habit of ignoring. This would also help me choose a place to raid where I can really tell what the vibe is like…

  14. Queue streams, lets say youre watching twitch late at night and wanna take a step away from the keyboard/mouse to lay in bed or something. You could just que up a list of streamers and if the first one goes offline, twitch automatically switches to your next streamer in your que.

  15. A 18+ symbol placed next to live or the channel name for streams that have been marked as mature by the channel owner.
    The current notification for mature channels can be easily overlook, or in case on a shared computer, a user maybe left unaware that the channel they are watching is mature.

  16. A lifetime subscription should be available for Affiliates to give to 1 bot account. This would prevent affiliates from having to pay for a Tier 3 sub for their own bot every month.

  17. it would be great to be able to organize the channels we follow and put them into folders or self made catagories and sort them in the order we want when they are live.

  18. This would be every month have new creators highlighted in those sections. This would be a great way to promote twitch ambassadors more as well as creators that are really just making great content regardless of their small size. Right now its incredibly difficult to get any exposure on twitch and i think this would be great right now.

  19. Add an option to switch automatically to live followed streamers once current stream is over and another channel wasn't hosted/raided. Extra points if you could let us set priority manually, i.e. "Fav Channel 1">"Fav Chanel 2">"Raid/Host">"That one channel that regularly is on but you're not super hot about watching it but it's better than (Stream is over, see ya in a week) message".
    Main objective: seamless watching/sleepwatching experience
    Twitch profit: more ad rolls
    Streamers profit: more lurking viewers

  20. I would love to see a site wide discoverability feature that universally lets me or any user "hide streams that are all 18+ content. " With a very simple toggle button to hide those channels.

    In addition to this, having all 18+ content not visible in any discovery page if a user is not logged in to the site.

    to clarify: 18 plus content may or may not include political or sensitive topics, graphic video games, or catergories etc.

    Being able to quickly toggle and categorize these channels either universally help create targeted ads for these channels, potentially turn ads…
