  1. Add tags for age ratings

    In my experience, few viewers actually remember whether they got the Mature Content warning when they first joined a channel.
    In addition to the existing Family Friendly tag, a tag to mark channels with an age rating and allowed behaviours would be highly useful as a constantly present reminder and a quick way to double check what topics might be appropriate.
    Example tags: Adult Topics, Swearing Allowed, 16+

    Ideally there would be a way to set a default tag to apply, but also a way to change the tag for events like co-streams where one might have a different rating…

  3. Sort by: e.g country, platform etc...

    Can we please add more variety into the discovery page for example I'd like to be able to find streamers from the same country and platform as me for example It would be cool to be able to search for apex legend streamers from the uk that play on xbox and then be able to sort by least watched so I can support smaller streamers as well as collaborate! I feel the discovery page is missing a lot of filters like time zone, game, platform, view count, total time watched, alphabetical even filters on the following page would be great…

  5. reorder your followed channels on the left(filter)

    Have a filter so that you can reorder the streamers you follow on the left so that you can filter it by "the time you spend watching each streamer", rather than ordering the streamers by the amount of viewers they having watching their channel

  6. Mini chat while watching the stream on fullscreen

    Can we have a mini chat while watching the stream on fullscreen so we don't have to minimize the video to chat. But make it an option though cause some people might find it annoying.

  7. Recommended Friends and Channels?

    I'd like to turn these off. If I'm recommended channels/people I don't actually like it can often ruin my day. (on top of that, it flat-out confuses the interface.)

  8. Prioritizing certain followed channels

    Add the ability to assign a priority to some of your followed channels to make them show up before channels with higher number of viewers.
    This could be achieved either by added those channels to a strict priority list (like auto-hosting feature has) or simply assigning a channel as "preferred" with a flag.
    A number of channels I prefer have a lot lower viewer numbers than the bigger channels I follow and better being able to see that they are live will improve the experience immensely.

  11. Put Game Icons Back Onto The Following Page

    Used to be I could easily see what games streamers were playing by their boxart / game icon. Now they're gone. Why did you remove this??? Put game boxart / icons back.

    Quit changing the UI for the sake of changing it! This makes searching for the right stream that much harder. Why in the world would you want that? /facepalm

  12. display in the directory wether a channel has lower quality options

    I dislike going into every single channel to see if said channel has lower quality options, and would like to save time by having that displayed in the directory or a quality options button next the language button.

  13. Add a "Live Subs" channels section

    On the main page side bar there is currently a Following & Friends section. For users that have active Subs, think it would be beneficial to have a Sub section for a list of live channels your subscribed to.

    This would be hidden if you are not currently Subbed to anyone.

  16. Add a Following pane showing only the channels I subscribe to

    The Following UI is already a mess with no filtering whatsoever, but can we agree it’s ridiculous that users don’t have one place showing all the channels we subscribe to that are live?

    I subscribe to a lot of small channels, and i keep missing that they’re online because they’re shown at the bottom of a list of dozens of the channels I follow—a list that insists on sorting by viewer count.

    I could code this myself, but that still wouldn’t help users on iOS, Android, and non-desktop viewports.

    I want to support the people I sub to, and getting…

  18. I don't care about Pulse. I'm never going to use it. Let me change my homepage back to featured streams and top games.

    Maybe I'm not the average Twitch user, but I use the site to watch people livestream video games. I don't care about social media integration at all, and if I want to watch prerecorded video I'm going to head to Youtube. Not that I spend a whole lot of time on Youtube either, but I know Twitch is trying to dip into that market as well, so I thought I should point it out. Frankly, the new UI is just another barrier in between me and the experience I'm looking for. I was unhappy when Twitch began to insert ads…

  19. Minimize User Interface

    Have both the upper and peripheral UI minimize so more of the actual stream is showing rather than purple sidebars.

  20. Streamer audio channels

    Give streamers the ability to have multiple audio channels, one for voice, and one for music. This gives them the ability to play music, and the end user the ability to either listen to that music at a level they like, or the ability to mute it altogether. Not everyone has the same taste in music, and this would also allow streamers to play their music and not have to worry about their voices being muted if they play music that's copywrited, as the music channel can just be muted if that's the case.
