Xbox One Disable/Change Viewer Overlay
The ability to toggle the streamer's on-screen viewer overlay on his screen, to off, or a smaller text, a moved text, or even just a red "Live" icon with a small text in a choice corner of the screen is more than enough. The placement is very intrusive, and misleading to someone who needs to see scanners, maps, health, and so on.
Many a time I have heard games exploding about "This friend is online" via the Xbox, but this does go away in seconds, so to put the Viewers count there, with a large ammount of text, that cant be toggled off seems silly to me.
Request: A feature in the snapp app, that;
1. Can disable the vViewer count overall.
2. Move the Viewer count.
3. Scale the viewer count.
4. Change the overlay to a red "Live" icon with the number only next to it. (Preferably placed via layout by user selection)
5. Simply change the layout to the "Viewers" icon, and the number alone. "Broadcasting" can be replaced with a red dot, and "Viewers" can be replaced with a tiny indicator, if necessary.
Thank you for your time, and I hope this doesn't cross deaf ears.
I literally cant stream because of this issue

Switching to Mixer because of this. We should be able to see the overlay content on our Twitch app, and disable the overlay on the Xbox, itself.

i use mixer only because it can change its overlay on my screem.
it sucks, i would love to get more viewers as twitch is far superior
I have a plasma tv, I can't have a solid bar on the bottom or it'll burn my screen. It's absurd this hasn't changed in 3 years.
Please please please fix this

These aholes don't listen. It's been years and not only has it fallen on deaf ears, its fallen on "i don't give a sh1t about gamers" ears. F XBX UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!
I just tried streaming and quit in 10 minutes because sh**ty overlay covers my abilities and health bar
Yes, it needs a disable button.
It gets right in the way of ALL subtitles in every game.

This is basic.

This should be fixxed for streemers quickly! Very important to people maybe trying to make a career
Fix this problem we can not stream on xbox x a 500 dollar machine without a retarded bar filling up my screen. Do your job and fix it!
Thats a fuckin joke....
Nothing changed since 2015.... WE WANT TO HIDE THE BOTTOM BROADCAST LAYER!!! TWITCH IS USELESS ON XBOX ONE!!!!
I use to stream my adventures on Skyrim, then I realized the useless Twitch bar blocks my health bar
Really frustrating not being able to move my broadcasting bar
