Thank you for your time. The current console tags are super helpful so we appreciate this idea being activated in the first place! Looking forward to adding more to increase discoverability.
Hey everyone! Just wanted to pop in and let you all know that you can now add any of the tags listed here to your streams, along with other custom tags (for a total of ten tags). Custom tags allow you to describe your stream in your own words. For more information, check out our blog post: https://blog.twitch.tv/2022/08/01/custom-tags-discovery-on-your-terms/
Thank you all for the suggestions!
100% agree. It just makes sense!
This has been needed for a long time now.
I don't know why this isn't already done, given Twitch is a gaming streaming service first and foremost. 110% this has been needed for years.
Wow Ash! Thank you so much for making this! Especially for Mister FPGA! I have voted! :)
Thanks Ash, this is a great idea! I'd love if we could have a tag that for people playing games on retro consoles; something like "Original hardware" would be great. I'd love to find other hardware streamers because we have similar struggles.
It's frustrating that it's taking this long even for them to add more.
Ash knows what she's talking about here
Others mentioned not having Arcade auto applied to the Retro category, which is a great idea. Can Arcade instead be a game system tag available to pick when a person plays a coin operated arcade game?
I'm with ya Ash!
You're the ambassador we needed, looking great many thanks Ash!
Love this! Progress was definitely made with the tags added, but let's add the rest :)
I also agree with the idea of the "Retro" category applying the "Retro" tag automatically instead of "Arcade"! That would better fit the category as it's being used and open up another tag space for users.
it would also be great if when applying the "retro" category that it didn't auto apply the arcade tag and instead auto applied the retro tag or no tag at all.
