  1. So the latest update for the mobile app introduced channel suggestion based on your language.

    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.

  2. There needs to be an option that lets you resize the Chat. The Chat takes away a good chunk of the screen when it is not minimized and it makes the Stream significantly smaller and since I like reading the chat I would like to have both on my screen without the Stream getting too small. Also, on my iPhone 12 on the right side of the Chat there is some kind of “black bar” with nothing on it which also takes away a little bit of the screen and it would also be nice if that would get removed.

  3. 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…

  5. Please revert these new changes made to the app. I can’t use the app properly anymore. When I open twitch I want to see my follow list, who’s on and what they are streaming, not some random stream that starts playing.
    Also where did the “continue watching” list go? I can’t see it anywhere. Do I actually have to go through profiles and search through vods and try to remember which specific vid I was watching?
    Wow! These new changes are a nightmare, please revert to the original format before I delete the app.

  6. The new iOS update is actually so bad. I do not want Twitch to just auto a stream whenever I open the app. I don’t want to swipe through TwitchTok and have channels I don’t even follow to auto play. Absolutely nothing was wrong with the way the app worked before, I want to be the one to choose when to play a channel.
    I don’t know what people were thinking with this update but if it’s bad enough to make me actively seek out the feedback page, then it really is bad.

  7. The “Featured Clip” is frustratingly oversized and takes up way to much space. It doesn’t need to be above “Live” or “Recommended” either. Move it down or make it a tab at the bottom with the other search features.

  9. While watching a previously viewed stream under “Continue Watching” when the advertisements finish. The VOD resets back to the beginning at 0:00. You manually need to reset it back to the last known watched time signature. Please take note of this. Thanks

  10. 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.

  11. New twitch uptdate:
    The autoplay scroll funckion for live channels is horrific.
    I follow channels on a whim I got about 70 live its useless.
    The little tiny tiny button on the right is too small the hitbox is too small too.

    The autoplay is horror I open the app and hit anything all I hear is screaming when I just wanted to check who is online.

    Autoplay cannot be turned off.
    You made the twitch mobile app into a doomscrolling feed of live. Why do such a horrific thing

  13. Often, streams contain several games/categories. The chapters function on PC is super helpful in determining which categories are in a VOD. For example, I've been catching up on watch party VODs. I like to play the show on my PC and have the streamer and chat replay on my phone. The streamer takes breaks between episodes, which are a pain to skip using the slider. On PC, I can just click the next watch party chapter. Considering this function already exists, it would make sense to port it to the mobile platform.

  15. I like being able to change all of my apps notification sounds so I know what the notification is without even turning my head to look at my phone.

    Right now with the new update it just uses the notification sound as set in Android settings, which can conflict with other notifications. I'd like to be able to change the notification sound for the Twitch app specifically, like many other apps on Android allow you to do.

  16. As a mod I think that it would be an amazing idea to give mods the option to actually be full mods on mobile. As of right now we can’t create polls, create predictions, or manage redeems.

  17. It’s obnoxious to enter the app and have a random stream start playing. Please restore the previous default of going to the followed channels and being able to pick a stream from there.

  18. On iOS 15 when watching streams vertically, remove the “Chat” text above the chat. It is pointless and taking up space that could be used to see more of chat, especially on my iPhone 12 mini’s smaller screen.

  19. 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)
