  1. While I'm browsing around the various streams, I would like to be able to 'back' to the list I was looking at, rather than start my search all over again. Right now, I go, Browse, [Games/Communities/Popular/Creative], Section, Stream. Then I have no means to go back to were I was (when I hit Browse again, the stream I'm watching goes bottom right) it would be good if it remembered the 'section' you were in and show the same list, then I could move onto the next stream.

  2. I would like to see the title of the game being played by the followed streamer to appear on the mobile notification. For example, instead of "Streamer just went live!" it would say "Streamer just went live playing Game!"

  3. Procreate is a mobile drawing app. This app supports live streaming but not to twitch where I have a community.

  4. They new Twitch App is using an own Player or sth? There is no volume slider anymore. So if you want to make it louder or quieter you have to use the buttons on the iPad itself and unfortunately they suck. I prefer using the slider in the player.

  5. It seems that live streaming is limited to a maximum resolution of 432p. This is much less than competitors which allow streaming at 720p or 1080p. Also, the lack of URL overlay support for cheer/tip notifications, similar to those provided by other apps like IRLTV and Teradek Live Air Solo, prevent this from being a viable alternative for serious IRL streamers.

    These features would help make live streaming more popular using the Twitch app and help enable a one-device solution:

    • Manual selection of stream resolution (480p, 720p, 1080p)
    • Either URL Overlay support or another notification avenue to notify the streamer…

  6. Hello! I was just writing to suggest a landscape UI for the Twitch app on iOS. I'm sure many people watch Twitch on their phone in landscape mode, so I'm sure many people turn their phone to landscape mode before they open the app like I do. Once I open the app, though, I have to return my phone to portrait mode in order to navigate the UI before I can turn it to landscape again after picking a stream to watch. Is this in the works right now?

    Thanks!

  7. Please add an option to stretch the stream/VOD on the android devices with new aspect ratios (18.5:9, 18:9 etc). The native crop to fit are bad for streams.

  8. While in fullscreen mode: allow the stream to go from landscape to landscape flipped without having the 'auto rotate' Android setting on.

    The YouTube app works this way and I find myself missing it more than I expected when using the Twitch app.

    In case the above isn't clear...
    1. Auto rotate is off
    2. Full screen stream
    3. Orient device to landscape
    4. Rotate device 180° (flipped landscape)
    5. Stream also rotates 180°

  9. Prevent the screen from auto-locking when using AirPlay on iOS. I want to be able to read chat on the device normally while the video is sent to an external screen via AirPlay. Currently I have to disable auto-lock on the iPad to prevent the device from locking and chat disappearing.

  11. Who wouldn't want to use Kappa or PogChamp through text messages? Am I right??? We need to make this happen! This idea was brought up back in 2015 and no one has since then voted more than three times. Well let's change that with this one. If you think this is a great idea, join me by voting up on this. Let's do it. MingLee.

  12. Basically there is a pretty big problem with the mobile app and Twitch Chat: It wastes a lot of data, and a lot of battery. In big channels, specifically Esports events, there can be upwards of 100,000 people in the stream and there are hundreds of chat messages every second. This is where the problem lies, it eats your battery and you can say bye to your data.

    My proposed change is to simply add a new mode that can be found in the viewing settings that allows you to just have the video fullscreen all the time (like it…

  13. There needs to be an option to mute audio on the Twitch app. Some people enjoy listening to other music or audio while watching Twitch streams, and its not possible to mute single apps on Mobile devices. This should be easy to implement and would satisfy a large portion of the Twitch userbase.

    Hi, hi,

    We've heard you and are happy to relay that we've launched an experiment for the mute button to some users, so that they can independently mute the app's video player! Please make sure you update your app to the latest version to see if you were chosen to participate. We are looking forward to your feedback here. Thank you!

  14. Hey,

    I noticed that on twitch iOS it's possible to zoom on the screen while watching a stream and that's really useful cause sometimes we simply can not see small letters on screen or things like that,

    Since I use a Samsung S6 (Android) and now it won't let me zoom anymore the screen, it would be really good since no one would be against, it's easy to make and pretty useful, I'm sure tons of people will enjoy (the one that will notice it ofc :p)

  15. BTTV is an amazing application that helps a lot of users with minor things that become a necessity after using for so long. I love being able to see all the BTTV emotes on twitch but the twitch application doesn't allow these. I also am a BTTV Dark user and on mobile we have to stare at the white background. They have recently put in a host button that shows under the channel you are watching. This means we can instantly click a button and boom the hosting is done for us with ease. Endless options for many people will…

  16. Hey everyone,

    someone who has their entire phone in English (since most stuff is English regardless, and others can be set), think the twitch app should really have the option to have the app in a specified language. It's great twitch tries to translate, but for me it's really uncomfortable to see the app in my mother language.

    Tl;Dr change app language

  17. So the latest update for the mobile app introduced channel suggestion based on your language.
    http://i.imgur.com/OKiAjRl.png
    Those appear in every game directory and on the channel directory. It would be nice to have an option to disable those. I rarely watch streams in my own language and this takes up a lot of unnecessary space for me. A polish friend also finds those rather annoying so I guess I'm not alone with this.

  18. Have theater mode on twitch app for like tablets and iPads and such, I think this would be a great addition to the Twitch mobile experience.
