  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow an option to block streamers channels

    So they don't show up when you are looking under games for streams to watch.
    It would be great if you ignored a user, their channel didn't show up when you were looking for streams to watch

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. Minimize User Interface

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

  15. 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.

  16. Stop trying to update the UI. It will never get better, only worse.

    Twice in a row now Twitch has decided to try and "improve" their UI, and both times there has been community backlash that just goes ignored. I, and many others, do not want a single from the UI that existed a year ago. I am forced to use things like BTTV to attempt to restore it to what it once was, with limited success. Seriously, fire whoever is being paid to do this. Nobody in the community asked for it or appreciates it.

  17. on the left side followed tab you can expand it to show all channels, even the ones offline , but there is no way to compress it back

    like i said , you can expand the followed tab on the left side as far as you want it to go , but there is no way that i see to compress it back to the few that were originally shown

  18. Ya blew it.

    The left side bar is completely empty. Theres nothing in it. You can expand or contract it with the arrow but theres still nothing in it.

    Nowhere outside of the following header at the top of the page can you see your followed channels

    The main page is a disgusting hash of an attempt at social media with the stupid feed system and the forced moronic attempt at having "friends" on twitch which nobody uses, nobody cares about, and nobody wants.

    Your activity is broadcasted to whoever and your online status is shown by default and even if you turn…

  19. Show all online Followed Channels automatically.

    I like the left side menu bar in the new UI. The only thing is that I always have to click "Load More" two or three times to see everyone who is online. I wish it would display everyone automatically.

  20. The new layout is bad, specially for smaller screens like the one I have + recommendation

    I use a 1440x900 main monitor and an even smaller second monitor (no I am not upgrading my monitors any time soon) and honestly anything that 'removes' space from the page is just horrible, you can very easily just put everything on the side bar, there's no need to add an extra bar at the top, it looks bad. This is the only feature that really annoyed me from the last few so I felt like posting it. Everything else you guys have done to twitch is great.

    For the side bar, you could've used the same idea from the…
