  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. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

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

  6. While it is good that streams can be embedded on other websites these should not automatically count as stream viewers on twitch.

    It is far too easy for some businesses to take advantage of this by putting a tiny stream embed on a high traffic page that almost no-one watches, but which adds thousands to the view count of the streamers shown.

    Not only is it just being dishonest with twitch viewers about a streamer's viewer count, but it damages smaller streamers too. Everyone knows the only reason this is done is because streamers with high view counts naturally draw…

  7. 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.

  8. Before the latest change, you had a very neat display of all available channels in the category.

    after the change, you only have a tiny bit of the screen to actually browse - overshadowed by a giant preview that can't be removed.
    this makes finding the stream you want so much harder, to the point of dejecting users from even trying.

    an ability to simply collapse the preview would solve this without interfering with the change itself - although personally I think it's just not needed at all

    EDIT: looks like you even made an "expand" button, but that does…

  9. 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?

  10. I think many people is interested in watching streamers from their own country if possible, but if you try to search streamers sorting by country...well bad luck, that option doesn´t exist.
    The best part of this idea, is that it doesn´t require a lot of work, because i 100% think Twitch already has data of streamers by country, so it is an inexpensive and easy idea to implement.

  11. 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…

  12. We recently announced the upcoming launch of the Twitch Discovery Feed: a scrollable feed in the Twitch app that shows users a personalized mix of Clips. Before that launch happens, we’ll be running experiments with limited versions of the Discovery Feed to help test and improve our algorithms and the overall experience. These early experiments do not reflect the final design or experience of the Discovery Feed. We'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions on how to improve this experience as we build towards the bigger launch.

  13. browsing filters should allow options to browse from less view channels to higher view channels. Scrolling multiple pages to reach the bottom of the viewership is time consuming & less advantage for new content creators.

  14. Add a filter to sort by competitive, casual, variety, speed-runner streamers. Viewers can have an easier time finding what they want and branch out to other similar channels. Streamers can set their own category via the settings menu.

  15. Add the game series as an overall category so that the viewership for individual titles stack.

    People could scroll through streamers playing any game in the series. They still have the option to filter out for specific game title in the series.

    Many games have several iterations/sequels/remakes, and the viewership gets scattered across twitch. This change would allow the overall category viewership to stack. It also would help reduce redundancy for games that release platinum/directors cut editions and split viewership for essentially the same game.

    Game Series Title (view count for entire section)
    Next page has all the game title…

  17. 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.

  18. How do I remove the LGBTQ+ filter from my suggested channel tags?
    I really don't care, don't support, and don't want to see any LGBTQ+ tags in my Twitch space. I'm straight and such tags make me unsafe and anxious. I wish don't see any channels and any mentions of this community in my Twitch account - how could I do it?

  19. Filter by max quality allowed (e.g. 720p), so we don't have to waste our time trying to watch what we can't see because of buffering/slow internet connection.

  20. Could literally be added here in the channels page http://i.imgur.com/5w1iyXi.jpg

    You even ask for the language in the dashboard when changing title.
