Allow for /announcements to work on the mobile apps
On March 31 2022, Twitch announced a new "Mod Feature: /announce" where people could use /announce and then a message would be higlighted in chat.
This has been proven to be useful for many chats and different uses. The only problem with it in it's current implementation, is that it doesn't work on the official Twitch Mobile Andriod App.
As a moderator on mobile, you can do "/announce and then your message". This will only appears on people who are using the PC/Web Browser versions of Twitch, and will not appear for anyone using the mobile application.
Thus, if people have /announce setup for stuff like important messages, like Shoutouts, rules commands, etc.., no one on mobile will be able to see the messages.
I am asking Twitch to allow these messages to appear on the mobile app, and have a highlight like it would to on the Web version, or use the standard "Highlight My Messages" colours/tones for people on mobile.
Allowing different coloured announcements, rules, give-aways, updates is absolutely amazing, mobile viewers miss out and it also means streamers have to make 2 chat messages, one for mobile and one for everyone else
Differentiating bot announcements by color and presentation has been insanely helpful in reducing chat-read confusion and missed messages... on the site. Mobile users are missing out.
Much needed feature!
plz , twitch , this feature would be great if only it output to all devices ...
I can't believe it's 6 months later and this still hasn't been implemented. It's definitely an accessibility issue that a feature like highlighting announcements doesn't work for those on mobile.
