Revert PS5 Twitch App to how it was
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 the update.
Absolutely this is the worst Ps5 twitch update by far. Not only are there all these issues that have been mentioned by op and commenters but also every stream has a 15 second delay on it so it's a struggle to chat with my favourite streamers
This new update is just a HUGE downgrade to the previous version. It only takes away features for no reason at all
-Can't press square to open or close chat anymore. That's really dumb. We now need to manually press the open/close tab icon and the icon is VERY frustrating to navigate to
-Before if I wanted to see something like the title or anything like that, I could just move a joystick and the infos (stream title, etc) would come up. Then instead of waiting like 8 seconds for it to close back I was able to move up 2 times with the Joystick and it closed the infos tabs. Now we really gotta wait for it to close on its own
-Browsing and switching tiles in home UI feels very choppy. Animations are bad.
No chat in vod, lots of us have to work when our favorite streamer is streaming, now we can't even enjoy them anymore. Stream isn't full screen anymore, there's a reason wide-screen movies are obsolete. Can't chat directly from ps5. So disappointing, this is a huge step back.
The Playstation Twitch App update needs to be fixed/rolled back.
The update solidly broke the app and now is basically unusable. Limited stream amounts on every streamer, inability to chat on device, the update has been a solid downgrade of nearly every feature. Not to mention the forced nature of the update means that it is now no longer able to be rolled back on the user end. I understand this forces Pre-Roll to load twice now that everything takes you out of the stream, but now I can't even watch anything on the PS5, so whats the point? Please at least include a button to close the overlay, because now it stays up and you cannot close it.
This new update is unbelievably horrible. You REMOVED chat from VODs for some reason, took away the ability to chat, and the stream on PS5 is about 5 seconds slower then on PC. Can you please roll back to the last version? As someone who probably watches the most on PS5 and often watches VODs this is very frustrating. Why get rid of chat on VODs? Why take several steps backwards with this update? This new update is worse in almost every way possible.
