  1. Viewer Only Extensions

    I was thinking, not all extensions need to be tried to a specific channel experience, and don't always interact with the broadcaster at all. Extensions like the chat translator, or maybe a TTS chat for viewers who can't read well, or visually impared, it would be great to have for users on every channel, not just channels where the broadcaster decides they want to use it. My idea is to have extensions that the view can enable on every channels, and possibly have the panel for viewer extensions be where the chat is, and possibly take up the bottom half…

  2. Add created timestamp to /helix/users

    A user's created timestamp is not yet available through Helix. The updated timestamp is personally less useful but would be nice for consideration.

  3. Add subscription status to Viewer's JWT

    Add subscriptionStatus to extension JWT. Currently subscriptionStatus is in Twitch.ext.viewer. With it in the JWT, it can be verified by an extension backend.

  4. Subs Tenure in Helix

    We would like subs tenure in Helix in order to use this for merch extensions providing tenure-based merch options.

  6. Give Broadcast ID for VoD Endpoint in Helix

    The current Helix endpoint doesn't give the broadcast ID, so there's no way to grab which broadcast the VoD is from.

  7. Add user_login to /helix/streams

    Some users have display names (the "user_name" property) that do not work for IRC or even in URLs. This requires an additional call to /helix/users with the ID to get the login which I find more crucial than the display name that is already included.

    Here are two examples:

    The user "riotgames" (ID 36029255) has a display name with a space. "twitch.tv/Riot Games" does not redirect to "twitch.tv/riotgames".

    The user "hanryang1125" (ID 103825127) has a display name with Korean characters. "twitch.tv/풍월량" does not redirect to "twitch.tv/hanryang1125".

    Neither of these display name would work for IRC, which goes for most display…

  8. Verified Developer Badge

    Partners get a verified badge, it would be nice for published developers to get a badge too, maybe after a certain usage requirement of their extension, like how partners have to hit certain limits to become partner, maybe enough usages or page views of the extension will get a dev a badge.

  9. Standardize Transaction Timestamp in Bits Transaction JWT

    The given JWT representing the transatction receipt contains a time field that is stringified version of the Golang time object. Parsing in this format is significantly harder than a ISO standard format.

  11. Allow extension review time slots

    Allow developers to sign up for a specific time slot where they can rely on an extension reviewer to review the extension.

  13. Allow Developers to Rollback to Approved Extension Versions

    Allowing developers to roll back a released version to another (approved) version would allow developers to quickly address breaking issues without going through a review process.

  14. Add functionality to query broadcaster id and user id for the Bits transaction API

    It would be convenient to have the ability to query Bits transactions based on broadcaster id and user id. This is extremely helpful for Extensions with lots of transactions and saves on calls to the API that would be necessary for paginating until the desired transaction is found.

  17. Helix has no way to get title/game for a channel that is offline

    Using just helix it is impossible to get the title/status or game of a channel when it is offline.

    Which makes it difficult for third party tools to obtain title/game to check it should match what we want before the channel goes live, so that notifications for the channel (email etc) have the correct game/title.

    Additionally bot commands such as

    "!caster - caster link to caster was last seen playing game"

    are difficult to achieve using pure Helix

  18. subscriptions revshare model

    bits revshare is obviously not enough to build a sustainable small/medium business on twitch extensions atm (except 1-2 examples out of hundreds). reasons behind as I see them - extensions are for small streamers mostly. middle/big ones are not that into extensions as a product category. thus even being featured 24/7 doesn't provide enough viewers to actually get $1000-5000 dev payout for most of devs. not to mention retention aspect.

    moreover streamers are not that eager for bits. their current meta is to grow subs.

    so the idea is to provide devs with ability to work with subscriptions and get…

  19. Add subscriber count to a Helix endpoint

    Add subscriber count to a Helix endpoint. This is important information for many streaming tools. Scope is an open question; whether anyone should be able to see someone's subscriber count or if this is only visible by the broadcaster's authentication.

  20. Allow Upload of Category Banners in Developer Site

    Game developers can currently upload only the boxart, but to upload the banner they have to reach out to Twitch to update. It would be nice to have this moved into the site to make it easier to manage.
