  3. So we all know that for discoverability, Twitch tracks who follows who, and who they also watch. Example: You follow Streamer X, and also follow/watch Streamer Y, and so does Z% of the community, they get recommended.

    I'd like to see a category that dials that one more step down:
    You Follow Streamer X
    Other Community Member Follows Streamer X
    Other Member Streams
    I can go to "Streamers in your Communities" category to see streamers who share a community with me, that I would never otherwise know about since self promotion is frowned upon.

    I know when I browse a…

  4. this was probably thought of already, or suggested and shot down,

    but what about adding sound to the Esports Directory, instead of having to navigate to the channel, enable sound on the Esports Directory so that I (and maybe others) can just from game to game and be able to listen to commentary.

  5. I wish there was a page on twitch where you can check who streamed how many hours ago within your followed list. This would come in handy due to twitch being a website where anybody can stream at anytime of the day and I don't want to miss out on streams that happened when I was for example asleep. I know that you can see if streames that I follow have streamed if there is a vod left but that UI is absolute dog **** and I want a page where I can check more easily.

  6. It's very hard to find streamers from Portugal in the middle of so many Brazilian streamers (Brazil has almost 20 times the population of Portugal), dividing it by Portuguese (BR) or Portuguese (PT) would make things a lot easier. This is the standard in programs, subtitles and games, since we use a lot of different terms. I think both sides of the language would welcome this change.

  7. There are many good posts in this section that try to address the issues with highlighting relevant content for viewers and support discovery of channels where viewers will be engaged in a way that leads them to support the content creator and platform. The problem is that Twitch has become increasingly solely depended on a cornerstone of viewer count which provides little to no value and detracts from the actual value and outcomes of engagement on the platform.

    Channels are often avoided or attended because the primary metric is focused on viewer count. This is basic psychology at work and…

  8. 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?

  10. A way to view a specific type of system i want to watch people play on. Like if I want to find more xbox streamers I can click that option and when i go to browse streamers for a specific game it will only show me streamers streaming on the system I selected. PC, Xbox, PS4, etc.

  11. Please add the ability to hide channels quickly when viewing categories.

    I enjoy the ASMR Category, but I am sick of obnoxious t*tty streamers who take no care in the configuration of their microphones or the sounds they're making.
    Just feels like a recipe: 1: Show bobs. 2: Link twitter with OF link.. ohai now your top of the ASMR category.

    There's also a ton of boring 24/7 streams and duplicated streams and streams in the wrong category under ASMR. As well as those duplicated streamers all having the same video with donation links... just scam/spam central.

    Blocking them does…

  13. simply said, if twitch wants more non-English speaking viewers, a feature that allow seaching only channels with "caption on" is a must.

  14. High-rank Overwatch streamers usually get ~20 mins of queueing right now and that is often filled with another game or a youtube game.

    I suggest a way to only view streams that are in-game, and to automatically go to the next streamer if the current stream doesn't have any gameplay. Or to have some small badge saying "In-Game" show up on the thumbnail.


    The easiest way of implementing this is using some lightweight ML Video Classification. I assume you are probably using a GPU to do remux, and you can utilize those GPUs for classification inferencing. You probably won't even…

  15. It would be nice to be able to see all active streams based on the categories followed. This would help users discover new streamers in a more organized form than simply using the "Browse" view.

    Example:
    • User follows: Retro, Metroid Fusion, and Pikmin categories
    • User navigates to "All streams from followed categories" view
    • User sees a Browse view that only shows streams from Retro, Metroid Fusion, and Pikmin

  16. I think having the ability to watch a short playback of the stream you hover would be an efficient way to help people watch content that they want to see instead of going through stream and guessing on what is going on in the live stream at the current moment, (getting baited from a thumbnail picture.) It might help people with low viewer count get more attention because people don't need to waste time to click on the live stream. It might be a good idea to test out a beta version to see if the idea is successful before…

  17. For people who love games, especially multiplayer games such as PUBG, CSGO, World of Warcraft, etc. It's very easy to find new channels on the Browse page.

    However, for people who really dislike these types of games, and prefer to watch streams for their (positive) communities, it's almost impossible to find new streamers.

    When heading to the browse directory, there's an option: "Show me", where you can select Channels. Perfect. However, this shows just the most popular streamers mostly playing the games we don't want to see. There's a second filter: "Streaming from", which is even more irrelevant for the…

  19. It's cute (Pathetic) how you have a 'feedback' section that slowly turns into a 'we only want to really harvest your free ideas and we don't really care about your complaints' section.

    You add previews to browsing and give us no control over whether we want it, or not. Give us control to disable that **** or I end giving Twitch any money when it renews. What is wrong with you? smh

  20. When browsing categories and channels on Twitch the results are sorted by the current viewer count. While this is one way to sort things, it doesn’t facilitate connecting viewers with the content they are most likely to watch. When looking at other content platforms such as Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc… none of them present viewers with content based solely on how many people are currently watching it but instead use algorithms to present them with recommendations based on the viewer’s previous behavior and the viewing behavior of other viewers. I believe Twitch should have all of the data…
