  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. 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.

  4. 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...

  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. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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

    Admin audit: removed unnecessarily derogatory portion of title

  11. 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..

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. Be able to live streaming on Twitch and chat on Twitch app on Nintendo Switch consoles when using the app on Nintendo Switch.

    Like you can do on other consoles Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 consoles.

  15. 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.

  16. Before the update, immediately after you open a stream you can press circle to close the stream info overlay on the video, but now it goes back to the previous page/home page. Annoying how you have to wait a few seconds for it to go away on its own now.

    Secondly, when scrolling through the home page and exploring other streams, just say I click on a stream, then I go back to the home page to continue exploring, it doesn’t save my place to where I was exploring to before, it goes all the way back up the page…

  17. Besides the other problems described in other posts, the app isnt showing all my followed streamers even if they are live. Not talking about the ones it doesnt show at the end that have 1 or 0 watchers...which is also annoying I have to click just to see them. I had a streamer with 16 watchers and it wasnt showing on my followed list, why? I probably had more that it wasnt showing as well but I didnt check. I feel the users and streamers are being disrespected by not allowing us to see our followed channels. The recommended channels…

  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. Not being able to chat on console is an issue. I like the idea of the phone chat option but keep it just that; an option.
    Not being able to tab full screen and chat using Square button is frustrating. Having to search for full screen and chat tab is frustrating.
    Square no longer has an input command.
    New home page seems cluttered and messy compared with previous version.
    In summary, simple is better and being able utilize controller to tab fullscreen and to chat worked just fine in the previous version.

    I do thank you for removing the double…
