Disable gifted sub pop-up
A recent mobile update has caused gifted subs to pop-up in an extended chat box across the screen. This takes away from the viewing experience and can be extremely irretable on bigger streamers where a lot of subs come in. This even occurs in fullscreen and throws the chat box up on screen meaning you have to disable it again.
I'm not the streamer, I don't particularly care about gifted subs.
Please give me the option to disable this pop-up.
This is the most ridiculous feature on the mobile app.
Just don't make it change the width of the chat and add this as an option for people who really care that much about hype trains and resubs.
Same thing happening with that stupid hype train thing. Making the stream video smaller for chat just makes me want to close the app and stop watching. Don't change the size of the chat!
Basically, if I'm full screen on mobile - just leave the screen alone.
Same for the “Hype Train”. It’s just so incredibly annoying to see it cover the whole screen. I don’t care about the Hype Train at all.
This is the worst.
Why does this en happen.. who though that. "yes lets remove fullscreen to show a random 5x sub gift"...I can't watch big streams on my phone because of this.
It's so annoying to have to keep closing chat whenever someone gifts subs. If I want to just focus on watching the stream I should be able to close chat and have it stay closed. If I want to interact in chat and read it then I'll keep it open but don't force it open when I want to keep it closed. Especially because it takes up even more space than the regular chat.
This "feature" is a plague. I just want to watch my stream in fullscreen without needing to hide chat every three minutes. Please remove the feature or at least give us the option to.
Why does this exist to begin with?
It's ruining the SGDQ stream for me... There has to be a way to disable it!
I can't believe that almost nobody cares that chat is popping up all the time. Is there a setting we have missed? Are we edge cases that only a lucky few have this issue or are we the only people who haven't payed for twitch prime so only we have this nonsense. I'll never be watching twitch again and just watch it on their own page. See ya
This is unbelievably frustrating while trying to watch SGDQ on Android. I closed chat so I can get the stream full screen and this notification I don't care about at all is popping the chat back open covering half the screen every 10 seconds or so. If the user closes chat this shouldn't be shown or open the chat at all.
This has become a huge problem while watching SGDQ. Watching in landscape mode on the Android app is nearly impossible because chat keeps popping up every time a sub is gifted.
The lack of this option has ruined the app for me.
This is super annoying and distracting. When I am whatching full screen I want to watch full screen and not read the chat. TERRIBLE user experience. Please consider fixing this asap.
To be clear I am experiencing this on Android Twitch app.
