Show calendar of upcoming streams for followed channels
With the schedule feature allowing streamers to set their upcoming schedule, it would be great if that schedule could be used to show an agenda or calendar view of upcoming streams for channels a person follows. A tab could be added to the current "Following" page for "Upcoming" streams that would show the when the next scheduled streams are.
We've launched an experiment related to this request! A new section will be added to the Overview tab on the Following page to showcase upcoming & live scheduled streams from Creators you are following.
The Upcoming Streams section will live below the Latest Videos section and above the Live Hosts section. You can set a reminder for an upcoming scheduled stream to be notified regarding joining that stream at the appropriate time. Additionally, you can click on a Creator in this section to easily navigate directly to their channel page.
Please check it out and share your thoughts with us. Thanks!
My Upcoming Streams is mostly people who rarely stream. Perhaps it should filter out people who haven't streamed in X weeks, and maybe include updating the schedule, for people planning to return.
Great feature introduction which will be a really useful alternative to going to each streamer's 'Schedule' tab and combining them manually.
A few things I would change:
1. Make it viewable as a calendar rather than just as a list
2. Make the calendar more visible/easily accessible (maybe by adding a link below the followed channels in the sidebar)
3. Add filters like 'only subbed channels', 'only watched in the last 30 days' etc.
I and a lot of the streamers I follow use the schedule tabs on our profiles so this is a great addition!
all the streamers at i follow do not use this feature they all used discord for scheduled
There should be a "show more" button.
My initial response to the Upcoming Streams calendar: it needs to be put much higher on the page.
Currently the Following page lists Live Channels, then Recommended Channels, then Continue Watching, then Latest Videos, *THEN* Upcoming Streams. In my honest opinion, Upcoming Streams needs to be put between Live Channels and Recommended Channels.
When you introduce a new feature, shoving it down to the bottom of the page is not the best way to get people to notice and use it.
I was looking for a calendar layout specifically for my subscriptions in a calender format. Like if I clicked the top right user icon, the dropdown would have a menu item "My Calendar". The point was so I could look at the calender, look at Tuesday and see that on NEXT tuesday the channels I follow will be live at 10am, 11am, 2pm and 11pm. So that i could then decide which channels i want to watch and plan my time accordingly. Basically just like the "schedule" for each streamer. just combine all my followers scheduled into a single calender that i can view daily, weekly, monthly.
Thank you for launching this feature! Some comments:
- currently, I can only see the next four scheduled streams, and there is no indication if this is a hard limit, or if there aren't any others scheduled, or a "load more…" button. A list, or even better: a calendar would be great.
- I really like that we can ask for reminders. However, it's not really clear how and where we'll be reminded, which is a bit confusing.
- now that you are putting all this data into a single place, it would be really cool to be able to use this as an actual calendar to import e.g. on a phone.
- Having the streamer colour scheme on there is a very nice touch, I like that a lot.
I like the idea of being able to get reminded about the stream, but I personally would prefer it if I could see more than just the next 6 upcoming streams, which is unfortunately not that useful in my case. I'd rather be able to browse the schedules like in a calendar.
If I could also filter the view by specific criteria, like only see the planned streams of channels I mod for, this would make it even better.
I think it would be cool if we could check out a schedule/calendar featuring ALL the streamers we're following and not have to check their pages individually and spent time working out if we can make their stream or not
It'd be very useful to have a sort of TV Guide for Twitch.
Commenting to bump this up, I have been looking for this feature!
Something that might be good for people who follow a lot of streamers is to be able to filter your following schedule by tags or games. Otherwise it might get pretty crowded for those who follow many channels.
Currently as a twitch user, I can click on a "Streamer's Schedule" to see that specific streamers schedule. I would like to have a section called "My Calandar" or "Today's Scheduled Streams" link, along with the other subscriptions, creater dashboard.... sections. On this My Calandar page it would show a calandar day/week/month with all the streamers THAT I FOLLOW. This would give users an easy way to see what I could be watching and/or planning to watch.
My suggestion is a calendar integrated into our user dashboard where we can access our followed or subscribed streamer schedules (those that have a schedule) more conveniently than manually entering them into our own calendars. It would be a convenient way to access multiple streamers start times in one location without having to open each stream just to see when it's going to begin. This feels like an amazing convenience that would not be difficult to implement, but I'm no code expert. I hope you take my suggestion into consideration. Thank you.
It would be nice to see the schedule for my followed channels. Now I need to go into each channel to check the schedule.
Yes! I assumed this would be a thing! It's very frustrating to have to open them all to see. I'd like to see all the upcoming streams in one spot.
Please make this happen. So frustrating to have to click through all the streamers individually to see when they will be online. A central calendar for all my streamers would be great! (please and thanks!!)
I like the schedule feature we have so far, but currently I'd have to check the schedule of every channel to find out if they use it and when they are going to stream again.
I think it would be nice to be able to see the schedule of all streamers I follow. This way I don't have to look up all of them and can check when there will be the next stream I'd like to watch.
It might be necessary to add some filter features as it's quite likely to get very full if I follow a lot of channels who stream regularly. For example filter by game, channels I mod for, etc.
Omg this does not exist??!!
I was looking like crazy for this, i thought they must have this somewhere on the site :)
this would be great, instead of having to click through each one individually
a schedule for all users to show "your schedule' for all the streams you follow. When i click my user icon have a menu item for "your Schedule" and day/week/month calander for all the streams i follow
