  1. Change the app back to how it use to be on xbox series. It updated and it's horrible. Had to relog in. You have to scan a qr code to chat which is ridiculous. The categories are randomly scattered and in no order which you can't change. Categories and streams are surround by a blinding white box now and everything seems jumbled together. I swear a room full of 3 year Olds designed this new layout. NOTHING about it is better.

  2. The new update on PS5 makes you scan a QR code and forces you to chat thru your phone. Why this was implemented is beyond me. If we wanted to use our phones we would. What if a user doesn't have a phone? The update literally makes watching on PS5 pointless if you like to chat.

  3. Xbox users need the ability to show their twitch chat on screen So we do not have to look away to talk with our cat it would be way easier to have a transparent window that shows us the chat off to the side. I know this is possible because playstation's app allows them to do that my friend says it all the time and can chat with his viewers without looking away. Please Twitch give us this feature thank you..

  4. The fact that you guys took away to ability to chat for people on console just seems bad to be honest. Not everyone can afford a mobile phone or even a pc, I would love to see this feature come back.

  5. Bring back old version of the console twitch app now! It was good and it worked and I could watch months of vods and catch up on them. It worked fine, twitch didn’t need to change anything.

  6. Bonehead move, Twitch.

    No one wants to hold their phone and stare down at chat when they are trying to watch a stream on their TV.

    Spend 5 seconds thinking about that. Where are your eyes? On the stream, or down at chat?

    Here's a great idea: Remove chat from PC app and web browser.

    EVERYONE PULL OUT YOUR PHONE SO YOU CAN CHAT.

    Who wants to use a keyboard? Ewww. Or view chat while they are watching stream? ewwww...

  7. Fix the “Watch Again” screen to allow viewers to actually watch again, when it appearing after a livestream it glitches, and does the opposite of its intended function. Now I can’t see any of the content that I showed up (very) late too, because Twitch thinks I’ve seen it all.

  8. About 4 hours ago(20th Nov 2023) the twitch app on the PS4 received an update. To say it is a backwards step in development is an understatement. the UI is offensive on the eyes (e.g. channels on the main screen have a glaring white box when they are highlighted, the menu button are from the 90s, to name a couple), things are no longer sorted into a logical order, and the best one, you are no longer able to type in chat without scanning a QR code on a separate device and utilising that to interact in chat.
    For a…

  9. Change the app back to how it was, as the most recent update has ruined the app VOD now no longer has chat visible. The continue watching section is gone and the app can no longer be controlled via remote and must be controlled with a controller. The whole app is much slower to use and feels like it is struggling. Please revert it to how it was as although the last version was not perfect, it worked considerably better than this one.

  10. Not sure if the PS4 Version was updated or not but I will assume that it was.

    The update basically made the app terrible; no more "Continue Watching", streamers "All Videos" have about 10-12 with no way of looking at all past streams, App no longer remembers the last quality setting you used it always defaults to auto, can't press square to open chat anymore, home screen is a cluttered mess, switching tabs to following or any other feels laggy and looks choppy.

    What happened? The app looks and feels like a ****** smart tv app, please consider rolling back…

  11. Let Twitch viewers on PlayStation/X Box chat in streams again without having to use outside means to chat. Will honestly make the whole thing easier to use

  12. It's a fools errand to continue down the UI path in which you're going, I mean the entire thing just simply does not work to even a very basic degree from a UI standpoint, buttons don't highlight, everything is like a slug, 85% of twitch features are completely unavailable or inaccessible. Want to full screen? Change resolution? Tough, you can't access the buttons because the UI doesn't show you what is actually being selected.

    It's not acceptable. It's objectively a massive regression from what existed for the better part of a DECADE. The only thing this update has accomplished over…

  13. in what world would somebody want a downgraded watered down version of the app where you can't read Chat, the entire other vital half of a stream
    why would you even think to take it away even for a fraction of a second, let alone having versions of the app already without it

  14. Hello, I would like to request to remove the unfollow button in the home screen from the new update. My home isn't big and has another TV in the side living room and when they use the controller, they sometimes unfollow the current channel I'm watching.

    Please, remove the unfollow button from this home watch screen, it's very unnecessary, counterintuitive and causes a lot of trouble.

  18. Please consider letting us use Twitch Studio on consoles, or let us customize our streams by giving us an option to set up screens for "streaming soon" (before stream starts), "pause stream" (when you need take a short break) and "see you soon" (at the end of the stream). Fully customizable, where we can edit the look (by uploading images/screenshots) and text/titles. We need our streams look a bit more professional!

  19. I decided to watch something on Twitch on my PS5. After logging in with my PSN user account, I saw that Twitch was logged into my daughter's Twitch account, which she watches under her PSN user account.

    Almost everyone in my family has a Twitch account. I think that each PSN user should be able to log into their Twitch account so everyone doesn't have to log others out.

    It's also a bad thing because that means that anyone on the PS5 could log in and mess with someone else's Twitch account.

  20. The new update for consoles has done a few changes that aren't great for the user experience. The biggest issue currently is the ability to see chat replay on VODs as was showing in the app before the update.

    Please re-enable so that people can enjoy watching VODs again!
