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 let us move and that bar as well as let us see chat. But I like twitch more, and would love to keep broadcasting through twitch, but Twitch needs to update the broadcasting for Xbox so we can move that bar to some where else on the screen and able to see chat again. It going to be hard to on a streamer who only has an Xbox and no why to read chat along with other stuff.
I care to repeat my comment in direct response to another suggestion of this exact nature.
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.
Please allow the broadcasting overlay to be moved. We'll appreciate the option to place that purple bar anywhere on the screen.
The overlay is not required to stay opaque. If it were available to be made transparent with a slider, that'd be most beneficial.
Included in the immediately previous suggestion the slider should include complete invisibility, for when we just don't care to see it at all.
Alternatively it'd be nice to switch it into the simplest of "Live" red dots, also moveable and with the function of an opaqueness slider.
We'll greatly enjoy these options to the Xbox One broadcasting overlay. Thank you!
BTW Did you know that streaming on Xbox with Twitch allows us to include our XBL parties with friends while Mixer does not? As far as I last knew. I don't stay up to date on Mixer too much. But that's how it was back when I was deciding who to stream with, so I chose Twitch.

Please Twitch, update the app, the mixer is coming with everything trying to make the streamers of xbox one migrate to it, but we like the twitch, we have friends and a public in the twitch, but it seems that twitch is only caring with the PS4 streamers ..
Do not do this to us, we love the platform and we want to see it grow, and help us grow.

I have asked for an update to Twitch with Twitch themselves on Twitter for a while and I don't get a single response. I know Microsoft are pushing Mixer but I don't like it. Now that mixer is broadcasting at 1080p and up to 4500kbps via the Mixer app on Xbox One surely Twitch can update the app, or is Microsoft being awkward about it.
