  1. Twitch is not full screen on the Samsung Galaxy S20 and I assume all other models that have the centred pinhole front-facing camera design. When the phone was originally released, the app actually did go full-screen over the pinhole, but just a few weeks later the Twitch app updated to no longer do that. Watching on mobile now means having a black bar over one side of the screen. The whole point of phones like these is the feeling of a true full-screen experience and the current Twitch app design ruins it.

  2. Give us the ability to limit playback quality while on mobile data in settings. For those of us who watch frequently on both wifi and data, it'd be nice not to have to manually switch stream quality when we go from one to the other.

  3. Have an option for the creator to set the output resolution for mobile users by default to a lower resolution.

    When I refer people to twitch to warch my stream from mobile they give up and say the stream is choppy or lagging because the auto feature always does the highest resolution instead of a default lower resolution.

    I would rather the output resolution be 480 at first and not have them give up on the stream because 1080 doesn't work well with phone service. The auto option doesn't work well it seems.

  4. On the Twitch Android app, you have two seek buttons on VODS to go 30 seconds forwards, or 10 seconds backwards. These buttons plainly suck. The touch area for them is incredibly small especially for someone with big fingers. I often miss an input when seeking so I double tap which more often than not brings up chat. Which I obviouly don't want and it is incredibly frustrating.

    I don't understand why they are made like this, and I also don't understand why there are three seperate inputs to bring up chat - a double tap, an on-screen button and…

  6. With the Twitch app in SlideOver, my Smart Keyboard’s input fails to be accepted into my Stream Manager or channel Chat input fields. I CANNOT INTERACT WITH MY VIEWERS BECAUSE OF THIS, MAKING YOUR TERMS OF SERVICE IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPLY WITH WHILE STREAMING other than via the extremely slow and awkward on-screen keyboard.

  7. It would be nice to have the ability to pinch to zoom while streaming. This would give the streamer the ability to zoom in a subject while they're out streaming in the world. Allowing them to draw focus on said subject without getting physically closer. I.e. if you want to show off some birds, without scaring them.

  8. It will allow me to block Twitch Streamers on Mobile, but won't do it on the PC, so instead it allows only on PC to "Report" and there is nothing to report to have the option to remove that Twitch Streamer, and also the "Recommended List"

  9. Since I play on my couch (and only have one monitor) I'd like to have the functionality of the desktop stream manager on my mobile device. Essentially, I'd like to be able to raid channels, see the ad timer, and so on from my mobile device. Also, I'd like to be able to run my stream manager from mobile horizontally. Don't know why it's locked vertically.

  10. Twitch should make a Tab or seperate app similar to TikTok/Youtube Shorts where you scroll on random Twitch clips on the site picked by an algorithm made for you. Would help people stay on Twitch because you could discover new people easily.

  12. Update the twitch mobile app so it’s more like the android app. Let there be an option to go into chat settings on mobile for apple users, android users already have the option.

  13. A clips section in every category on Twitch, you can swipe up or down to travel between clips. Clips can be rated through a slider on the side. I think this feature would be great for not only streamers, but normal Twitch users as well. This short clips section would have its own place aside from streams, for example: Top rated clips would have their own space in the main Twitch page.

  14. I really want this, because otherwise mobile users can't see to which comments replies go. It just triggers me every time. :(
    So is it possible, to do the same like on the pc/browser app, also on ios mobile phones? Whould love it! :D

  15. Please fix Twitch appv for smartphones with Android 9.
    On this system version you can only adjust microphone volume in the streaming menu, but not fans volume, in fact it makes the phone useless if it not on Android10 or higher if you want to stream mobile games live...

  16. Play In Background claims it will switch to audio only mode when the screen is locked. I have it enabled.

    When I have the app open and I lock the screen or swipe down from tho top of the screen to open the iOS notification center, the audio does continue playing.

    When I leave the app while a stream is playing, the stream continues playing in a picture-in-picture mode. If I then lock the screen or open the iOS notification center, the playback pauses rather than switching to audio only mode and continuing.

    This is especially annoying when pressing play…

  18. Allow us to sub on mobile for the same price as on the desktop. There should be no reason this wasn't how it was on release.

  19. Stream uptime should be visible on mobile too, at the moment it's only on desktop and web as far as I know.

  20. It seems complete idiocy that an Amazon product does not support an App for an Amazon company. My previous generation of tablet did but the most current one (11th generation) does not....what is the point of a free sub with Amazon prime if I can't even access Twitch.
