  1. Hello, I and many others would certainly be happy if the Twitch app becomes a part of the Vodafone Video Pass. Unfortunately in Germany this is only available at least with the Telekom-Stream-On. The data volume in Germany is very expensive for the consumption of Twitch. I would rather put the money into the Content Creator on Twitch than give it to a mobile phone provider like Vodafone. 😄

  2. When someone who isn't streaming hosts you, you see the "x is now hosting you" notification in chat which is only visible for the broadcaster but this doesn't apply for the Twitch app. For someone like me who has the chat open on mobile while streaming, it would be nice to get a notification when someone hosts me with 0 viewers. And maybe even see if someone is auto-hosting me.

  4. Also mein Vorschlag wäre dass sich Twitch evtl einen Handy Rahmenvertrag für Twitch Partner, Streamer oder so bei Telekom oder Vodafone sichert. Mit günstigen Konditionen für das Datenvolumen evtl auch begrenzt auf 10, 20 oder unbegrenzter Gb Download und unbegrenzter Upload unbegrenzter Upload müsste immer sein. Der Vorteil wäre die Streamer finden leichter einen günstigen Vertrag und für Twitch wäre der Vorteil dass die Streamer mehr an Twitch gebunden wären.

  5. The popout video player is too small on android. You need to enable the resize feature like other apps have including mx player and new pipe. Currently I'm using a 3rd party twitch app to play streams via mx player, just so I can resize the popout player.

    I will continue to ignore the official twitch app until this is fixed.

  6. Prevent the screen from auto-locking when using AirPlay on iOS. I want to be able to read chat on the device normally while the video is sent to an external screen via AirPlay. Currently I have to disable auto-lock on the iPad to prevent the device from locking and chat disappearing.

  7. Allow chat to use the entire mobile screen.

    Currently when using chat only mode the video section takes up a third of the screen and is redundant. The streamers name, icon and tags take up allot of screen space leaving two lines of chat visible at any one time (on my iphone6)

    When i’m not at my pic I like to watch stream on my TV or PS4 and it would be awesome to have chat on my phone. The current layout hinders me from keeping up with chat so i don’t use it at all. It would be awesome…

  8. It's weird how we can make clips, add a title, and even adjust the length but can't save it to the phone without going through some hoops rather than just copy link, and share there should also be a feature to save the clip directly to mobile

  9. Give us the ability to limit playback quality while on mobile data in settings. For those of us who watch frequently on both wifi and data, it'd be nice not to have to manually switch stream quality when we go from one to the other.

  10. Have an option for the creator to set the output resolution for mobile users by default to a lower resolution.

    When I refer people to twitch to warch my stream from mobile they give up and say the stream is choppy or lagging because the auto feature always does the highest resolution instead of a default lower resolution.

    I would rather the output resolution be 480 at first and not have them give up on the stream because 1080 doesn't work well with phone service. The auto option doesn't work well it seems.

  11. Twitch should make a Tab or seperate app similar to TikTok/Youtube Shorts where you scroll on random Twitch clips on the site picked by an algorithm made for you. Would help people stay on Twitch because you could discover new people easily.

  12. Stream uptime should be visible on mobile too, at the moment it's only on desktop and web as far as I know.

  13. This may have been mentioned already and sorry if it has, but having a Twitch Studio mobile app would be fantastic for native streaming and not having to use the Twitch app or Streamlabs just to stream.

    For the future of course I'd love for the app to have every feature from the desktop version, but just a simple app outside of the Twitch app to stream from would be great.

  14. Hello Twitch
    I would like open a discussion about me partnering with you in order to assist in Twitch allowing Twitch to be made specific to a brand of smart glasses that I use. I've been observing Twitch live-streaming for sometime now and believe the this streaming application can be opened up to many more different formats, and no doubt you believe this of course.

    I'm a very early adopter of smart glass technology and have already utilised smart glasses for an array of applications such as being the first to live stream a wedding using smart glasses and would…

  15. When browsing on mobile, i have to reset my language tag EVERY new category i look through. It would be great if they would stay, just like on Desktop site. I only speak/read English and having to trudge through searching for English can get very tiredsome and eventually i give up and don't even watch anything until i get back to my PC.

    Also, why 2 English tags, with no distiction between them. I understand one is Brittish/UK English and the other American English, but they both only say "English". There's really not much difference between the 2 either and…

  16. I would like a button to be on a channels page using the mobile app to host channels. Many times when exiting IRL streaming it can be difficult to host other streamers with unique names.

    If I could close down my stream and browse twitch to find a channel and hit the host button on their channel that would help a lot.

    I ended my stream the other night and kept having to go back to my channel and typing in host(name) to only have spelled the name wrong multiple times.

  17. When an error is detected have something to restart the player every five or ten seconds automatically for a certain number of attempts before requiring the user to manually restart the player. But of course allow the player to manually restart there too, with the condition being that if the player manually restarts during a wait time it will count as all attempts expired.

    Why is that? I sleep to streams and sometimes the player encounters an error and halts the playback, so I wake up to absolute silence and need to restart the player manually.

  18. Might be beneficial to add two more zoom in settings instead of just one, many times to remove the black bar for a better exsperiance while watching someone's favorite streamer it cuts off good info we want to see, leaveing it zoomed out or normal and there is a black bar around the screen, haveing three zoom in setting allowing ppl to choose what zoom seating alows them to see all the streamer has on the screen would be beneficial because it's not working now. I'm not sure what the zoom settings are ment for but seems to me their…

  19. Drops page enhancements (Android):

    1. A "sort" button (by progress, name, etc)
    2. A "refresh" button (to update progress)
    3. If the drop is for a specific streamer, a link that opens that specific streamer channel.

    Thank you!

  20. I got the low latency mode and now it’s gone. I used it a lot. But other users (some friends of mine as well) have it and they even don’t use twitch. So to get as much feedback as possible for a feature, you may need to get it accessible for signed user only, so they can use and test it and give some feedback. Maybe better than waste it on People wich dont even use it
