Bring back chat on PS5
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.
Still no update what a shame this one of the worst companies to ever hit public if they don’t listen to their users lol
I hate the latest update on my PS5, chromecast and smartTV.
- You removed the "continue to watch" section. Bring it back asap!
- You removed the chat in VOD's. Bring this also back asap!
Why is the latest update a huge downgrade in all aspects. Who thought this was a good idea???
As someone who uses the app exclusively to watch VODs with chat, this change made the whole application pointless.
completely ruined the console experience ; the main and only reason for watching on console was to use twitch on a big TV from the bed or couch with an experience almost identical to watching on a computer.
browsing is ruined too
Not being able to see chat on vods is actually insane. Who thought of that? And removing the ability to chat on the console anymore is crazy. The previous version, we were able to toggle fullscreen mode on or off with chat. So why take it away?
Absolutely hate this "upgrade", it just makes the ps5 app incredibly frustrating to use, for all the reasons already listed. Loss of chat for livestreams and VODs, terrible lag and awful changes to the interface making it harder to access streamers' content.
Did anybody test this before Rollout? This is a pure downgrade in every way and seems like you forgot to implement half the features, if not all of them because right now this app is not even worth the small space it is occupying on the PS5 drive. Bring back chat (the whole point of twitch), the ability to go as far back as you want in vods and clips and all the other functionalities you removed without adding anything of value.
The recent twitch app update is an absolute downgrade in every possible way. Please revert to the old application. It functioned significantly better.
Twitch on the ps5 is not worth using without chat. Please bring it back in live streams and on VODs. Additionally, twitch removed recently viewed videos for easy access. Why? Also twitch added a separate page for followed streamers but can’t R1 over to it? Instead it skips over a view streams to the right when you hit R1. It’s like the devs who made this new patch don’t have a PlayStation and don’t watch twitch. All of the changes were for the negative.
I can't believe they just stripped a bunch of features, all of which I used regularly, but didn't *add* a single thing. They also removed the ability to filter streams by e.g. language. Complete disregard for the users. Like, "yeah we know it sucks now, but you just have to deal with it." Instead of laying thousands of people off, maybe don't, and then you could use all the money made from 30 second Chrome ads to maintain the app we were happily using for several years.
It is also useless if you have vision issues. I am farsighted so i need glasses to use my phone but I don't need glasses to watch TV so now in order to chat I have to keep putting my glasses on & off to see my phone. It's the dumbest thing they have ever done and excludes SO many people from chatting!
its cluttered, the ease of access is terrible now, no chat, bad lag, wont remember settings.. its terrible.
The PS5 update has compromised the user experience by removing chat, by streamlining, yet somehow making the homepage harder to find the content I'm looking for, and the UI for the videoplayer is counter-intuitive and constantly interrupts playback if any button on the controller is touched. The latest update has made the experience so frustrating that I've just deleted the app from my PS5. I don't know why features like chat, that are so integral to the twitch experience, have been removed, but the PS5 app is just useless to me now.
Chatting is not the only problem, also all controller shortcuts are gone for example pressing square to full screen, also now you can't watch the chat in vods wtf.
I have a keyboard I use with my ps5. This update is pure trash. Why not give people a choice in how they want to interact instead of removing features and forcing people to use 2 devices for 1 function? And people get paid to do this? Bunch of clowns.
I like being able to have streams play on a big screen via my PS5 so my PC is free of the strain. Now if I want to watch that way, I need another device like a cell phone to chat and the raid feature still doesn't work.
This update is awful. Where did the chat log go for VODs? How did you manage to ***** up such a basic feature of Twitch? There's no way in **** I'm using 2 apps at the same time when it worked JUST FINE with one. Uninstalling this app, what a letdown.
You have got to be trolling with this update. It makes the experience worse in every way and please at least bring back chatting from your controller if you won't roll this update back.
Bringt das alte Twitch wieder, mehr gibt es da nicht zu sagen! Es ist der reinste Horror!!!!
