  1. 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

    • Put an "Are you sure?" confirmation prompt for unfollowing a channel.

      A confirmation prompt to unfollowing a channel is needed as it is extremely easy to unfollow a channel due to the follow/unfollow button being so close to video quality and sometimes when switching between vods/live stream.

      • 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.…

        • Implement support for the PS4 Second Screen phone app so we can scroll through and select streams on my phone

          The Second Screen app is super useful for when I don’t have my controller nearby. Some apps support it and Twitch supporting it would be a nice touch

          • 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.

              • 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…

                • Problems with PS4 Update

                  Ever since the update, I haven't been able to use the app to watch any vods/rebroadcasts, and even watching streams is difficult. For vods, it will load up, then play six ads in a row (not exaggerating), go back to the vod, then load another six ads in a never-ending cycle until the app crashes. You can skip ahead for a little bit, which prevents the ads from rolling again for about five minutes..

                  For streaming, again, ads play every four to five minutes as the stream gets reset until the app inevitably crashes.

                  I get that most of the…

                  • 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.

                            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.

                                  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.

                                    Once logged in GIVE US an option to HIDE the chat when the game is in the forefront. If we wanna check chat, we can then pull back using the XBOX button (As we do now when switching games without stopping the stream) & then snap the Twitch app to the forefront on OUR screen

                                    If done right, it would give us the same display we see on our end now YET TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD, it would be as if we did nothing except read the chat because the game would still be in full screen to viewers

                                          Hi ! Why don't add à night mode on Twitch app when you stream from the Xbox one ? I think it will be better a black background than the white one when the app is pin. Thanks. I apologise for m'y approximative english
