Random Stream Button
The discovery page lacks a "Play Random" feature. It might be fun and interesting to enter a random stream in a Category. It might help casual and new users find entertaining streams much easily and faster.
The user that clicks on the button will be forwarded to a random stream in the previously chosen category. To find another stream the user will simply click on the same button that will appear on the header of the page.
This used to be a fun feature back in the days, used to discover alot of different small channels.
This night i thinked about this kind of functionality, and, finally another one already ask for it.
Like another commentary say, with some filter it can be really cool!
Yes! I was just coming here to suggest this, I would add this though:
For the random selection, add filters so users could select categories, limitations (such as min-max viewers/followers/subs), limit by unaffiliated/affiliated/partner, etc. Just a random feature with filters to narrow down but also allow easier discovery of new pages.
Please provide a feature where users can press a "Random" button on their home page which will start playing a random channel within a random category - I believe this will allow users to explore more of what Twitch has to offer and gives Streamers (especially those with no or a low amount of viewers) an opportunity to get more exposure and build up their communities.
