2020 Xbox One Stream Overlay Bar Improvements!
Hi, I would like to throw in another Feedback request for the Xbox One Twitch Experience. I have Signed up for the Beta via the Xbox Insider app. The one Key thing I find is really a hassle about the app is:
- The Stream Overlay Bar, the Bar that tells you the time your live and how many viewers you have.
I have noticed a few people have already put in Idea requests for this and it has fallen unto deaf ears. One post that has been up here since November 8th 2015 stating my same issue has no resolution still. That is 5 years, and I feel something needs to be done.
So now to move into my rant about the blue overlay bar. Now the issue I have is basically every time I stream I have the blue bar show up. Now the only options I have with this bar is it blocks key elements of a game. For example blocking a map and or key text or a health bar and ammo bar. This is sort of annoying when trying to play a game.
Another issue that I notice with the overlay bar is that there is no way to interact with chat. The only customization options are to move the bar around in different locations on the screen this is not enough. I feel we should have the option to remove the bar, change the visibility or even change it to a small chat / overlay bar that can be moved or visibility can be changed. The reason why I ask for this is because it is a hassle trying to use different devices to interact with chat. For example a phone, computer or Ipad. Plus the chat interfaces on these devices refresh if you click out of them. This means I have missed chats and the ability to interact.
I am posting this feedback again hoping that something gets done or someone gives a reason why this hasn't been done.
I think the twitch app as well since mixer is gone can be a very powerful streaming asset for console users if only they made some key changes.
Hopefully something gets done and my post doesn't sit for 5 or more years like others.
Can someone please make his happen. A hide button can't get that hard, or an option. I don't want this dumb bar burnt into my screen.
