  1. On the tablet version of the iOS Twitch mobile app, chat is normally positioned to the right side of the screen and is about the same width as on desktop.

    When the software keyboard is enabled, chat expands to fill the upper-right quadrant of the screen while the stream stays in the upper left quadrant, which is normal.

    However, when a hardware keyboard is connected, the software keyboard does not appear while typing; unfortunately, the chat still expands to fill half of the available screen real estate, minimizing the stream to the left.

    Frustratingly, the screen has…

  2. 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.

  3. I'd love to use the Stream-Manager on my Android tablet (with a magnetic keyboard attached), but the feature is portrait only for some reason. It would be great to be able to respont to comments on the tablet's physical keyboard.

  4. Hi,
    A streamer I watch frequently recently got the best opportunity to get a better handle on his stream and emotes.

    But the frequently used emotes hasn't updated the prefix.
    I tested all his emotes to see what happened.

  6. Push notification/widget for follow alerts, subscriber alerts, overtop of other apps, so that if we are distracted by the game while streaming on IOS, and possibly chat notifications also, so that streamers can see what their chat is saying without having a second device. This could also be used for donations, hosts, raids, bits. As long as the chat message isn’t too long, it should work for that also, but most streamers, would likely be happy to have the notifications for the follows, subs, etc, and still use a second device for chat, but that way for smaller streamers, they…

  7. BLOCK PHONE SCREEN FROM VIEWERS DURING MOBILE GAME STREAMS

    I was wondering if we could make the mobile streaming while playing a mobile game a bit safer.

    I'd like the ability to blind my viewers when playing a mobile game, bc sometimes certain games have certain in game notifications that cant be turned off, and pop up upon game start that show my email or other types of information I may not want shown asking me certain things, including updates for games.

    I'd like the ability to push an eyeball indicator which will blind the screen and allow me to…

  8. Until the most recent update to the Android app, notifications were in the following format:

    Title: <Streamer> is streaming <Category>!
    Text: <Streamer's 'Go Live Notification' message>

    This was mostly fine, though with longer usernames or certain categories, it could be unclear which game was being played - but depending on what the streamer wrote for their Go Live Notification (GLN), it could be clarified just by pulling the notification down and reading the text section.

    But now with the latest version of the app, the notification comes in two flavours, seemingly at random. Either:

    Title: <Streamer> is live: <GLN>
    Text:…

  10. I recently upgraded my phone to the Pixel 5 with a hole punch camera in the front.

    Netflix and Youtube support this via a pinch out zoom and fills the width of the screen, it appears that the Twitch app is almost there as it seems to support a pinch out zoom but it won't go all the way over and stops with a black bar over the camera and status bar area.

    I would like the pinch out to zoom to fill the whole screen! Thank you

  11. Can we please allow the mobile Twitch app dashboard to be viewed horizontally on the mobile dashboard instead of being stuck in vertical view? Also, can we please have the stream preview on the mobile dashboard? I use my tablet to monitor my stream and it would be convenient to be able to use the dashboard view instead of the channel view to monitor my stream when using the mobile app.

  12. The iOS app has recently been freezing whenever I click on the chat box while watching a stream. The audio continues to come through, even when I swipe out of the app to my Home Screen, and does not fix until I hard quit out of the app. This problem has only been happening on my iPad Pro, app on my iPhone 14 works fine

  14. On iPad, tapping the chat box to open the keyboard freezes the screen (audio unaffected) for around 5 seconds, after which the keyboard will appear but the stream will change to 1 fps. As of new update.

  15. It would be really nice to be able to react with a channels own emotes to their stories. If there's concern about the amount of space this UI would take, let the creator pre-select which emotes are enabled for this.
    Side note, clips being paused while reacting is quite annoying, especially since they don't autoplay afterwards.

  16. Unable to minimize the player in the app without the player automatically going to picture-in-picture mode.
    I have “start PiP automatically” DISABLED in my iOS settings.
    Used to work like: when a stream is open normally, you could swipe down and the stream would go to a mini-player at the bottom of the screen.
    Now: doing the same thing transitions the player to picture-in-picture, which I do not want.
    Please resolve by reverting back to the previous functionality, or adding a setting to let the user choose which functionality they prefer.

  17. We’ve made improvements to give you more flexibility to stream while on the go. You can now stream in portrait mode, easily view your chat with a sleek redesign, edit your stream info while you’re live, and coming soon - scene switching!

    Please try the new flow on mobile and let us know what you think. We are continuing to make improvements and your feedback is appreciated!

  18. Can we get a date/timestamp in the whisper chat function?

    Not sure how we don't have this yet!

    Especially for an ongoing chat you might not know what day a message is from

  19. Please add support for Siri voice commands, such as Rewind and Fast Forward, when watching videos on demand. For example, “Hey Siri, Rewind 30 seconds”, or “Hey Siri, Fast Forward two minutes.”

    Currently that can only be done with on-screen buttons but the app doesn’t support those Siri commands. Siri responds with “Sorry I couldn’t go back” or “Sorry I couldn’t skip this”. A good example of how this SHOULD work is the native iOS Podcasts app.

  20. I’ve noticed when people stream off android they have a button to view chat. There is no such thing for people streaming on IOS. Suggesting we get the same feature on iOS, so we don’t need an additional device just to view our chat
