  1. It is hard enough finding trans representation in our daily lives. With the LGBTQIA+ tag, one still needs to browse through channels and spend time in them to find trans streamers. A "trans" tag would help people searching for these communities.

    Today we are rolling out 350+ tags, including the transgender tag, to provide you with more options on how you express yourself and your content, so that you can more easily connect with one another and build wonderful communities. We are really appreciative for all of the feedback around this topic (and other related suggestions).

    We previously told you that we had a better solution to this request than adding the tag, and we were wrong. This has been one of the most popular requests we’ve heard, and the simple truth is that we should have done this sooner. In an effort to think carefully about how to best address this, we only made the situation more difficult. Again, thank you for helping us throughout this process in reevaluating our stance.

    Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice, as well as any suggestions for additional tags…

  2. Creative and IRL used to be categories on Twitch. Everything that wasn't games was in Creative. This means everything from Bob Ross to ASMR (let's be real that's the same thing.) was all in one place and entirely unsearchable.|

    Twitch broke up Creative and IRL into a bunch of new and rad categories to help discoverability. This included Music, Art, Beauty, Food, Just Chatting, Tabletops, ASMR, Science & Technology, and others. This category splitting really helped a lot of smaller communities grow. It was easier to find new and interesting streamers because you could now discover them in an otherwise…

  3. The rise of the VR industry and the relatively new phenomenon of Virtual Streamers and Virtual Youtubers has made impact on sites like Twitch as well. There is a very large (800+ and growing) community of streamers on twitch who use a virtual avatar combined with face tracking software to use instead of webcams. VR is already a tag, but it would be nice to distinguish this category for those who use avatars and may play the role of a character. (like HoloLive, for example) It's not much different than having Anime as a tag, for example.

    Thank you very…

    HeyGuys!

    Super excited to share that we now have a “Vtuber” tag on Twitch!

    In the past I had posted on how tags were aimed at the stream and not the streamer, but we have changed our thinking on this as of today and added more than 350 new tags, including this one.

    Changes like this are possible because of feedback and threads like this so I just wanted to say thank you again for sharing feedback with us.

    For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/

  4. Every time I am trying to find a programming or game development stream to watch (which is a very specific type of stream) I get lost in all the growing plants and raising chickens 24/7 streams. While on the other hand there are a lot of programming and or game development streams that really deserve their own category. Being a part of the live-coders community I feel that splitting science & technology in a more granular way would benefit everybody. Both in terms of search-ability and clarity.

  5. The black community has always deserved representation in every single space that we exist in. There are content creators who feel invalidated because we are unable to find other members of the black community on Twitch, especially during a time that we need to stand as one. The black community deserves representation, validation and acknowledgment. We deserve a black tag so that we can find, communicate and uplift each other.

    Please create the black tag.

  6. Support for games on Linux can be inconsistent, and it's really helpful to be able to see how well a game runs on the OS when making purchasing decisions. A way to easily find other people streaming on Linux would be a boon.

    Hey all!

    The Linux tag is now live on Twitch!

    Thank you so much for this feedback and please let us know if there are other tags you would like to see live on the site!

    Hey guys!

    Just following up to let you know that this has been resolved!

    We are back to one category for Age of Empires II!

    Thank you for the continued feedback on this.

  8. With a recent update, Twitch merged all remakes of games in the directory with its original game for whatever reason. Now remakes of popular franchises such as Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, etc. are all fighting over visibility in the same directory. This is also a problem for remakes of games that have completely different names from its original game, such as Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land, the remake of Kirby's Adventure for NES released on GBA, who's directory is now completely gone because ????

    I don't understand what the point of this change is. There was absolutely nothing wrong…

    Update: we are now able to support a handful of new game types from IGDB, including remakes, remasters, expanded games, and forks – all new game types that have been introduced on IGDB (see the updated documentation at https://github.com/twitchtv/igdb-contribution-guidelines/wiki/Type)

    This means that we can now restore nearly all of the titles that have been reported missing in this suggestion, and we are working to do so!

    Thank you for your feedback and patience! We will close this suggestion for now, but please feel free to open new suggestions if there are additional games that you find are missing!

  9. Disabled gamers often face more or different hardships than abled streamers do. There are so many amazing users on Twitch who are disabled, and they deserve a "disabled" tag. Disabled streamers need a way to find each other and weave our communities together, and disabled viewers need a way to find streamers they want to watch and connect with.

    Hey All!

    We’re really excited to share that not only have we added a “Disabled” tag, but we have also added more than 350 other tags to Twitch. If you feel we missed anything pertinent, please let us know.

    For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/. Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice!

  10. add tags for religions such as judaism, islam, sikhism, hinduism, buddhism etc. to allow streamers to create safe spaces for others like them in their streams.

    Hey all!

    We have gone ahead and added the following religious tags to Twitch:
    -Agnostic
    -Atheist
    -Buddhist
    -Christian
    -Hindu
    -Jewish
    -Muslim
    -Pagan
    -Sikh
    -Taoist

    Thank you so much for the feedback about these tags. We totally understand that this does not cover all religions so if you would like to see a specific tag added please feel free to create a new idea and we can look into adding it to the site as well.

  11. There is already a tag for Unity and for Unreal Engine but none for Godot. Godot Engine is an open-source engine that is growing a lot in popularity. This would help viewers find streams that relate to this engine.

  12. "Flow Arts": As the current world condition has taken us from previous live festivals and performance, many Flow Artists and Dancers are turning to virtual and broadcasted live performances of their talents. Traditionally, we as dancers, hula-hoop performers, jugglers, poi spinners and other similar disciplines, have had to gravitate towards the "Music & Performance Art" category. (With no specific tag identifying us as with Flow Artists, nor dancers). Now that Twitch has adjusted back to "Music" as the original category, we have migrated to "just chatting"; it doesn't really identify our community at all, among others that actually do feature…

    Hey all!

    Super excited to share we now have a flow arts tag on Twitch!

    Thank you so much for the feedback on this and please let us know if you have any other tags you would like to see on Twitch.

  13. The number of study/co-working streamers has increased dramatically over the last few months and co-working is likely to become a very popular niche on twitch! Many people now work or study from home and the co-working community is a very welcoming and friendly place. Please add a tag so we can identify ourselves and make it easier for like-minded people to find us!
    Thank you

    Excited to announce that we now have a coworking tag on Twitch!

  14. The Touhou Category got removed or renamed, removing it would be very detrimental to the community on twitch.

  15. A veteran tag would allow the various veteran streaming communities to find each other, and assist each other better. Many veterans stream to help others fighting PTSD, trauma, and veteran suicide.

  16. Would love to see a vegan tag so that we can connect with other vegan streamers, build our community and promote education and advocacy.
    It is always very exciting to find another vegan streamer in the wild. But it's very hard for us to reach each other on twitch as there are no community features that accommodate this. With plant-based nutrition becoming a growing market and the vegan movement getting larger day by day, I think that it would be nice for us to have a tag to further build that community.

    The vegan tag is now live on Twitch!

  17. There has been an influx of keyboard builders on Twitch. I think this would be a very convenient way to filter streamers by this metric.

  18. There are many streamers who will drink on stream, talk about drinking on stream, or just generally talk about alcohol, which could be uncomfortable for others for many reasons. Would be awesome to be able to tag yourself as an alcohol-free or sober stream

    Hey all!

    Excited to share that we now have a Sober tag on Twitch.

    Thank you so much for your feedback on this and please let us know if there are any tags you would like to see added to the site!

  19. The RTS games, StarCraft & StarCraft 2 feature 3 playable races: Zerg, Protoss, and Terran.

    Currently, there's no great way to filter the starcraft categories for streamers playing a particular race.

    The new tag system including every league of legends champion as a tag sets a precedent for this change and would improve viewing experience and discoverability.

  20. Hello!
    Myself and many other creators are streaming and creating sound baths in a few different categories and it would be great if people could find us and we could find each other, there have been many other generes of music added and sound baths would be great.
    Also to accompany this I suggest a meditation tag as there are many communities hosting meditation sessions and guided meditation sessions with and without sound baths.

    Many Thanks
