  1. please allow us to put overlay on PS4 and PS5. Make an app were it allows us to choose a overlay, create an overlay, place the overlay on out stream and allow chat to be on there by default or if we can take it off as well.

  2. The idea I have is being able to stream off your webcam on your laptop while still streaming via your console. I've run into the problem of not being able to stream my face since I don't have a ps4 camera since they are all sold out or in limited supply.

  3. For example: 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. I cannot use the current Xbox One Twitch app to directly stream Skyrim.

    Pick any game. Pick your favorite game. Its Heads Up Display and various menus shows critical information to the player during the process of playing the game. The current Twitch broadcasting overlay takes access to that information away from a streamer. We want access to…

  4. Current app update on xbox requires a user to scan a qr code then use a mobile device in order to type in chat. The ability to type in chat should be native to the Xbox app and not require external devices.

  5. look I know that this may not depend on you, but it would be much better if there was an obs for th, this would also solve most problems, since with the obs you will be able to personalize the live by cell phone or computer, and exchange n means of live, you could have much more customization options than we already have consoles, facilitating the customization of the lives, and giving us many more tools.

  6. About 4 hours ago(20th Nov 2023) the twitch app on the PS4 received an update. To say it is a backwards step in development is an understatement. the UI is offensive on the eyes (e.g. channels on the main screen have a glaring white box when they are highlighted, the menu button are from the 90s, to name a couple), things are no longer sorted into a logical order, and the best one, you are no longer able to type in chat without scanning a QR code on a separate device and utilising that to interact in chat.
    For a…

  7. I would love to have the option to get rid of the broadcast bar and to customize it. It would be nice to change the opacity of it and to move something like view count, length of stream and if your mic is on or off individually.

  8. Since the removal of snap an app on xbox console, we can no longer view live chats. This has made it increasingly harder for Xbox streamers to be notified. Many streamers who are getting started use overlay expert, but that doesn't show up the streamers' console either. Providing a live chat box for the streamers would be very much appreciated.

  9. The new ps5 update is so weird first of all you say it should be a “viewer-only" experience but the mobile app shows alot more content (vods-playlist etc..) and one of the most important things to view is chat even if you don’t interact with it and only read it still is a big part of being in a vod,Also the past version was so bad design wise and personally i like the new design and appreciate that the player is alot more flexible in skipping and rewinding but if you want to skip to an exact part you will…

  10. The twitch app on the base xbox one streams the same capabilities that the xbox series x can stream. The new generation xbox is very powerful, I’d assume it would be capable of a streaming in much better resolution and frames than the base xbox one. I feel as if the twitch app on the console should be updated to correctly display an upgrade in stream quality. 1080p@60 would be Nice.

  14. For some reason on xbox when live streaming and only xbox the ingame voice chat does not go through with recording. it would be kinda cool if we could choose ingame voice chat recording as well as xbox party recording

  15. Once logged in GIVE US an option to HIDE the chat when the game is in the forefront. If we wanna check chat, we can then pull back using the XBOX button (As we do now when switching games without stopping the stream) & then snap the Twitch app to the forefront on OUR screen

    If done right, it would give us the same display we see on our end now YET TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD, it would be as if we did nothing except read the chat because the game would still be in full screen to viewers

  16. Your new update is just removing features like chatting, and chat in vod. Why would anyone chose to watch Twitch on console when it's just like watching a Youtube video? Chat is a big part of what makes Twitch interesting and I have no idea how you thought it was a good idea to remove it. There's so much else that is a downgrade, but this is the biggest one for me. And I wonder how anything at all were improved by this, and that's something I think the users deserve to know.

  17. rollback the update. no one wants this. it’s been a month with no improvements and the only update was so that the app wouldn’t work if you found a way to avoid your god awful update. can’t even watch vods from my favorite streamers collections as the only way I could before was with continue watching. but I guess downgrading is the way to go. got stuff on your twitter bragging about improving chat interactions while doing stuff like this. way to go.

  18. The console app was recently updated and changed the way 'browse' works to show you games Twitch thinks you want to see instead of showing you what's got the most viewers. This, to me, is a terrible idea as it suggests categories based on how much you watch them so if you watch a variety streamer, say goodbye to your ability to browse. Give viewers on console the option to sort by suggested or by viewer High to low like you can in the app!

  20. Twitch is due for a major update. Especially the Twitch app on Xbox Series X.

    1. Twitch needs support for 1080 60 and 4K streaming if possible. We also need HDR support. I just streamed an XSX game in HDR and it looks so dark on Twitch. My stream is now ruined. I had to delete it. That's unacceptable. It's 2021, guys. Get with the times. Twitch is looking outdated. It's not a good look for you guys.

    2. Make the on screen hud bar that shows your current time while streaming much smaller. It takes up too much real estate and…
