  1. iOS app lost zooming and swiping functions.

    Title says it all.It‘s also difficult to reload the channel after temporarily leaving the app.
    Please rollback to the previous version.

    • AndroidTV Improvements

      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…

            • Twitch app on iOS Chrashes on viewing profile page of a channel that is currently hosting another channel

              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.

              • Rollback to the old mobile app

                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.

                • Watch ads and earn bits for mobile

                  On pic they have it so they can earn bits by watching ads but mobile user like me cannot do that and I don't want to pay so I can donate bits so I feel like it would be more fair if you would add that feature to the app

                          • Suggestion: Add option to disable swipe controls and make Vods more visible

                            An option to disable swiping left and right to switch channels should be added as the implementation conflicts with swiping left or right to bring up device navigation controls, as I ultimately end up switching streams accidentally when I try to bring up my device's system buttons or make the video smaller when swiping down to new notifications.
                            Also viewing Vods and videos is very hidden away and should be brought front and center, say maybe instead of the useless pulse section. I couldn't care less what the community thinks I should watch.

                                  I love watching streams, but I absolutely hate the chat. I want to be able to enjoy it like I would something on my TV and not be bombarded by hundreds of messages a minute of crap I have zero interest in.

                                    I'm currently running on a LG G6. Please make the clips streamable via chromecast. I would like to share highlights with my friends using this feature.The only options to watch specific clips is to "watch the whole video." I think twitch clips is a good feature and the fact that you can stream twitch from your mobile device to another device (like chromecast) is also great. But not having the ability to stream clips from your mobile device is very lackluster. It only makes sense to be able to stream the clips.

                                      For the longest time the Twitch iOS app let me know what game a streamer was playing when it sent the push notification.
                                      No longer does it do that, and it sucks.
                                      I'm not interested in every game and having to actually go out and check for myself has meant I've missed streams that I'd rather have watched.

                                        I'm not asking for a complete rollback to the old app because there are a lot of things about the new updated app that I like. However, theswipe to change to another stream is completely unnecessary and often just makes the viewing experience incredibly frustrating when trying to watch anything on mobile. Also, the old landscape chat on tablets was basically perfect since it didn't cover the stream but now that it does I barely ever have chat open anymore when watching on my iPad.

                                        TLDR: Remove swipe to change streams or at least make it optional, and fix tablet…

                                          After several months of using the "new" twitch it still pisses me off how much worse it is then the old layout, that was just perfect. A few days ago you fixed the chat at least so it's shrink to fit. But still just about everything else is more confusing and frustrating to use. I remember the old layout with a tear in my eye, but guess I just have to deal with this shit.
