  1. The broadcasting overlay bar should have mobility, transparency, invisibility, and minimization options.

    For example: I love playing TESV: Skyrim.
    The broadcaster's overlay used to be in the lower center of the screen, blocking view of the HEALTH bar. Now it's in the lower right of the screen, blocking view of the MONEY during trading. I cannot use the current Xbox One Twitch app to directly stream Skyrim.

    Pick any game. Pick your favorite game. Its Heads Up Display and various menus shows critical information to the player during the process of playing the game. The current Twitch broadcasting overlay takes access to that information away from a streamer. We want access to…

    • TURN ON EMOTES FOR CONSLOE

      If I am subbed to a streamer I want to be able to use the emotes that I've unlocked via my sub to them. However I currently cannot on PS4 and Xbox One. I propose that you add a button that activates if you are subbed to a streamer that pulls up the emote list for that streamer that you can click on to add.

      • Update the veiwer count overlay for Xbox one

        The veiwer count overlay needs an option to be turned off, or made transparent. The overlay blocks VERY important aspects of almost every game i have attempted to stream. Usually covering up health bars, radars or maps

        • Xbox One Extensions

          It would be cool if we could see FFZ and BTTV chrome extension emotes on console. Id love to be able to see and use these emotes on my console just like i can on my pc. Its not as good to read chat emotes as words rather than seeing them as actual emotes. I know these are google chrome extensions, but im sure something could be worked out.

          • Please allow Xbox streamers to move or hide the viewer bar.

            Please allow Xbox streamers to move or hide the viewer bar. I have not been streaming for long but immediately after starting my first stream I did a search for how to remove the viewer bar from the middle of the screen when streaming. I figured I was just not seeing the toggle or option for such a fundamentally necessary option. I then came across thousands of requests from others for the same thing. Requests dating back as far as a year ago, asking for the ability to at least hide it. It completely blocks critical information for a streaming…

            • Alternative Channel View on re-designed PS4

              The redesigned app on PS4 as of April 26th, 2018 has limited the amount of channels you can view when browsing games. Now you only see 3 channels at a time on screen. It doesn't matter if its on a 75" 4k or a smaller 43" 1080 or 4k screen.

              This has made it a huge pain to browse to through dozens of channels to see if theres any specific one I want to browse. I'm much less apt to throw on a different game or new streamer now with this inability to navigate and browse streams with the redesign.…

              • Allow Multiple PSN/XBOX One Accounts to be used on a single Twitch Account

                So as of now, if you're a streamer who uses multiple PSN ID's or XBox One Accounts, for whatever reason (Mine being my wife and I both play, and would both like to stream solo when the other isnt there, on our sites stream), you must jump through hoops to do so.

                First you have to disable the currently linked account on the PC, then re-link the one you would like to use, every single time.

                There must be a better way. Linking the authorization to the entire console, using broadcast keys, any number of other solutions.

                The only other…

                • Twitch Xbox One App needs higher res/ bitrate

                  Now that Mixer allows for streaming at 1080p and bitrate around 4000 (seems to be around that). Isn't it time for an updated twitch app to allow for higher bitrate for our streams. I really don't want to use Mixer as I prefer twitch. I hope Twitch have not forgotten about Xbox users.

                  • Xbox one x

                    Twitch needs a major update for xbox one x as after 10 minutes of watching a stream it starts buffering then shuts down completely. It's not my internet as I'm on fibre broadband and getting 70mbps.

                    • The Xbox One Twitch app needs an update

                      The Twitch app for Xbox One needs to be redone. With the new Xbox One update coming in Spring this year, snap mode is no longer going to be a feature. There for when you unsnap, you have this broadcasting bar at the bottom of the screen that we can not move, witch covers up importen stuff for the game, rather is health, to dialog and so on. It really makes it hard to stream some games when you cant see there options. Now I wont lie, there going to be other option for broadcasting coming to Xbox and they…

                            streaming on ps4 is frustrating without the above, if you offered psn users some overlay options that would be awesome. you can even use it to advertise movies and games etc.

                            • PS4 Twitch App Improvements

                              The app doesn't have the ability to set the video quality, it just uses the auto feature like on mobile. This seems to cause the stream to constantly change quality. Adding a stream quality option would improve the app immensely. Also, when in fullscreen mode, the video doesn't scale correctly to my TV. I know I have the resolution and screen bounding set correctly because it works for other apps, as well as games. I would like to be able to have the full screen mode use the bounds that can be set in the PS4 settings.

                                When you want to change a game with the twitch app or restart it the stream automatically ends and you have to restart. This is a problem for when your game freezes especially because you have to restart and you will lose your viewers

                                  There are a lot of great games (not so much outside of Japan), but there is no simple way to stream from a Vita.

                                    • A Manual Zoom Control option for theXBOX ONE "Twitch.TV App" would be awesome!!! O,O

                                      Hi, I've been using the Auto-Zoom feature in the "Twitch.TV App" on my XBOX ONE. Which is a great option most of the time, unless it stops tracking my face for some reason.

                                      Anyways, I was wondering if a Manual Zoom option similar to what HP's Webcam's already use might be in the future for the XBOX ONE "Twitch.TV App"? I know that I, along with a great many other Kinect owners bought it just for the "Twitch.TV App". It's got a 1080p camera that would be a great Manual Zoom candidate and what's more it'd be an awesome feature…

                                      • Options to move the broadcasting banner on xbox

                                        Enable placement options, like camera placement for the broadcasting - viewers banner. It tends to get in the way of text and radars on games

                                        • Can you please bring Twitch.tv to Smart TV's.

                                          I have a Panasonic Smart TV from 2013 and it works flawlessly with Youtube and Netflix, even its Browser is decent for a TV. But Twitch is missing :(
