  1. 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.

      • Allow chat to be turned off/diabled on the Mobile App.

        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.

        • 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.

          • Sharing highlights with clips through streaming devices.

            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.

            • Why oh why?

              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.

                Please just give us the good old twitch app that everyone was used to and was able to enjoy not this torture piece of garbage useless junk that makes you want to tear your hair and punch a hole in the middle of your damn ipad which lacks most of the features people actually used the app for people were more than happy with the older version there was no reason to reform the entire damn thing

                • Show us what game a streamer went live with again!

                  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.

                    • Remove swipe to change streams and fix tablet chat

                      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…

                      • Some feedback/ideas regarding 5.0 Twitch App.

                        As someone who watches Twitch primarily via an iPad pro, I wanted to give my two cents worth of constructive feedback about this new update.

                        I should start by saying that I like the direction it has taken, and many of my pet peeves from the previous version were fixed. Many many thanks to the devs for the hard work that has been poured into the app.

                        There are still, however, things that I think could use improving for better user experience.

                        - Landing page: I understand the choice to make "Live" the first page users land on, but this…

                                  The new App is a hot mess of over-reaching functions that do not in any way improve viewer experience. The move from a a simple streaming platform into a hybrid of social media/streaming is mistake that I simply cannot get understand. There are better social media platforms out there and it feels like Twitch has played to its weaknesses instead of its strengths. This could easily be solved with increased customizibility.

                                    So, swiping to switch to the next or previous video is just awful and was honestly a completely idiotic idea. I'm constantly accidentally switching to other stuff now and it's INTENSELY annoying.

                                    Also intensely annoying is the fact that, when multitasking on the iPad Pro, which I frequently do while watching streams and VODs, if I bring up the keyboard, the section where chat will eventually be slides up and covers the stream until I hide the keyboard again.

                                    Speaking of the chat covering the stream, in the newest release it just covers a quarter of the screen and there's…
