  1. MVP: Add option for the Android Twitch app to use the light or dark theme by inheriting the state of the system's theme [Android 10+].

    Bonus: Ideally, it would be great for the app's rendered state to automatically update the theme without having to be restarted. Switching back to the app via the app switcher (whilst it's running in RAM) after the system theme changes (either manually or automatically, based on Sunrise/Sunset) should cause this to occur, as well as if it's in the foreground and Sunrise/Sunset toggles a system-wide change.

  2. Please add the ability to control Twitch on the PS4 via Google Cast as long as the app is open (on the PS4). See the YouTube and Netflix apps on the PS4/Android for an example. :)

  3. Changing playback speed on twitch VODs have been useful for quickly scrubbing through archives or slow motion down eventful moments. However, it's currently only available for desktop. It would be a nice feature to be made available for mobile and tablets.

  4. Instead of using a third party app I think twitch should have a screen capture button for mobile users to let them easily stream, without going through all of the hassle.

  5. Fix this:

    The iOS app regularly resets the playback position of the video after unpausing a VOD. May also be a result of pausing, leaving, then re-entering the app. This makes VODs a pain to watch on mobile.

  6. Usernames with the black hex color (#000000) are unreadable in the android app, not sure if its the same in the iOS app as well. https://i.imgur.com/b4Evflz.png

  7. Make the popout player resizeable. Currently the popout player is so small, it's practically useless. I have to use the multiapp feature on android be able to see the stream but that doesn't work well with some apps.

    You need to enable the resize feature like other apps have including mx player and new pipe. Currently I'm using a 3rd party twitch app to play streams via mx player, just so I can resize the popout player.

  9. The iPhone 11 is capable of using multiple cameras at once. It'd be great if Twitch provided a way streamers can stream using the front and back camera at the same time. It'd be especially helpful for Just Chatting streams so viewers can see the streamer and what they're seeing.

  10. I mod for a couple bigger streamers and alot of time I am using my phone, confined to the Android Twitch App. Having an option to delete individual messages would be an extremely handy update for all mods who use mobile.

  11. Please allow the audio of a stream to run in background to allow for multitasking as the expected running time of a stream is several hours and if someone is on their phone it causes them regular interruption. Also, the screen at times is frozen when returning back on an app

  13. It takes a very long time to switch a stream's video quality. — It is so bad, that is even faster to set the desired quality, close and reopen a stream. But why?

  14. Introduce the ability to clear viewing history in app.

    Twitch, as of writing is roughly 110 MB in size.
    The app data (for me) is 450 MB and steadily growing.

    Youtube, in comparison is 140 MB.
    The data use is only 40 MB.

    What is the difference? Why must the Twitch app be so storage hungry?

  16. 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.

  17. The popout video player is too small on android. You need to enable the resize feature like other apps have including mx player and new pipe. Currently I'm using a 3rd party twitch app to play streams via mx player, just so I can resize the popout player.

    I will continue to ignore the official twitch app until this is fixed.

  18. For mobile, tablets or app on the ps4. It would be awesome to have an autoshutdown if you fall asleep, like I do often. Maybe with a custom timer for individualy shutdown time.

  19. The possibility to embed Streamlabs (and other) alerts when streaming thru the Twitch mobile client.

    Embedded like a browser source, I would say 1 or 2 sources maximum (to keep in mind, it is still a mobile thing).

    I think this will help to create a better experience on and with mobile, because the look and feel for the viewers - compared to a Desktop stream - is kinda similar and familiar.

    Twitch already offers some options to use Streamlab components in Chat, why not extending the good experience in the Broadcast-part, too?

    With a simple grid system...

  20. Also mein Vorschlag wäre dass sich Twitch evtl einen Handy Rahmenvertrag für Twitch Partner, Streamer oder so bei Telekom oder Vodafone sichert. Mit günstigen Konditionen für das Datenvolumen evtl auch begrenzt auf 10, 20 oder unbegrenzter Gb Download und unbegrenzter Upload unbegrenzter Upload müsste immer sein. Der Vorteil wäre die Streamer finden leichter einen günstigen Vertrag und für Twitch wäre der Vorteil dass die Streamer mehr an Twitch gebunden wären.
