  1. Play stream sound if iOS iPhone app is in background

    TheiOS iPhone app stops playing sound if app is in background or screen is locked. This interrupts the stream all time if a iMessage/... is received and I need to reply.

    Twitch app should work like other sound playing apps and stream the sound in background too.

    • Android app video playback speeds up after ad

      I've noticed the following thing on the Android app: when watching a video, an ad comes up (that's fine), but as soon as the ad's over, it cuts back to the video and the playback speed seems to be sped up slightly. It happened to me like 3 times now in the past week. Always the same issue.

      Any thoughts?

      Thanks.

      • Remove UI for chat only mode for landscape

        As the UI currently is for chat only mode in landscape, we can only see three lines of the chat at a time. https://imgur.com/a/3aMza3l

        • PIP on iPad pauses after switching to another app

          For some reason picture-in-picture stream pauses after pressing home or switching to another app. I don’t think this is intended behaviour, because in other apps video in pip doesn’t pause after switching. It’s not that big of a deal, but it gets annoying really quickly.

          • PiP (Picture-in-Picture) stops randomly

            iPad Pro with iOS 11.3.1,
            Twitch v 6.3.1

            PiP stops randomly. I used to be able to watch Twitch in PiP all the time but now it's useless because PiP stops and disappears as if a stream stopped. The streams do not stop though.

            This happens all the time during a stream meaning that I basically can't watch anything except if I am in the Twitch app itself.

            This might happen because of lost packets or some other interruption I think. I notice that sometimes while in the Twitch app watching stream, occasionally there is a short pause before the…

            • Reduce the delay on live streams

              On iOS, there is a delay of about 10 seconds compared to desktop and even Android on live streams. This happens even when the source quality is selected. The delay makes it difficult to use the chat on busy streams, as the chat is always way ahead while the stream lags behind.

                An option to disable autoplay in the iOS application during VOD/highlights would be great. They help me fall asleep, but the autoplay of the next video wakes me up.

                  • Display which sections of a vod are muted.

                    Currently, there is no way to determine which parts of a vod are muted while looking at it on a mobile app.
                    The desktop site already has this feature, and it can help determine whether a vod is worth watching or if it is all muted.
                    Plus it would make it easier to know where to start and where to skip to next if you are watching a muted vod.

                      • Allow to sort games by actual viewer count, not by "# in the US". I'm not from US!

                        When browsing most popular games on the Android app, the list is sorted by "# in the US" instead of total viewer count.

                        Please make it at least an option to sort by actual viewer count - I find popular content such as European esports tournaments using this.

                              While the default android app has been improved I feel like the android tv version has not gotten any love. Can we get dark chat background option for the Android TV app which blends in with the black bars and rest of the picture. Also VOD chat is badly needed, it's already on the default android app can't this be also added to the TV app.

                              • (iPhones w 3D-Touch) Activating the 3D-Touch outside will show top live channels

                                For latest iPhones, 3D touch provides one tap process to the app’s most used feature. Currently for Twitch, when holding down the Twitch App while in the iPhone home screen, it will only show the number one top live channel (most viewers) from your following list. This prevents users from seeing other live channels who they are following.

                                My suggestion is that when using 3D touch to check live channels, it should show atleast the top 3 or 5 online channels that they follow. Or better yet just find a better usage of 3D touch because it is such a…

                                    I typically am unable to view channels live because of my work schedule so I typically watch vods of streams when they are offline but if they are hosting a channel when I open the profile page the twitch app on iOS locks up. I then have to force close the twitch app to even start watching another channel.

                                      The new app is difficult to use, hard to navigate and removes some of the best functionality of the old version (chat accessibility, PIP, airplay compatibility) while adding unnecessary functions, some of which are even detrimental to the viewing experience (e.g. swipe between streams). Roll back to the old version until you're able to release a well-tested, polished new version.

                                        • Video-Audio desync

                                          When the stream is buffering the audio starts playing before the video quite often and stays desynced. Only resyncs by reloading the stream.
