Implement a mute button on the Twitch app
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.
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!
I'm with you on this Dan! It's simply stupid NOT to have a volume control on ANY app of this nature. I'm on Android and it gets really annoying not being able to adjust volume.

Omg...since the last update they took away the mute feature. Wtf. I muted it everyday and put on music while watching. Not anymore...kind of choked.
Yes please do this

Yes,this would make sense, I currently can't use voice to text feature.because all the phone hears is the twitch stream audio ,instead of my voice. With a mute button.this would solve the problem.
Also for the xbox app! No reason we can't have a mute button. I generally use my xbox controller and the TV remote is typically out of reach. This would just be a connivence.
This would be very helpful because I watch streams on mobile when it's slow at work but I also play music. Having the two overlap can sound weird.
same for the PS4 app, thanks
please do it

I often listen to podcasts or music while watching streams on my tablet. Since there are the options for chat or audio only, video only (or a mute button) makes so much sense! Especially as devices are getting better at multitasking, i find myself wishing for this more and more.
With popout now there for for android i can imagine cases where i want to mute a stram while playing a game
