  1. Had this idea a while back. Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to send Kappas, PogChamps and such to eachother in text messages, snapchats etc?

  2. Hey,

    I noticed that on twitch iOS it's possible to zoom on the screen while watching a stream and that's really useful cause sometimes we simply can not see small letters on screen or things like that,

    Since I use a Samsung S6 (Android) and now it won't let me zoom anymore the screen, it would be really good since no one would be against, it's easy to make and pretty useful, I'm sure tons of people will enjoy (the one that will notice it ofc :p)

  4. I've noticed the following thing on the Android app: when watching a video, an ad comes up (that's fine), but as soon as the ad's over, it cuts back to the video and the playback speed seems to be sped up slightly. It happened to me like 3 times now in the past week. Always the same issue.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

  5. Often, streams contain several games/categories. The chapters function on PC is super helpful in determining which categories are in a VOD. For example, I've been catching up on watch party VODs. I like to play the show on my PC and have the streamer and chat replay on my phone. The streamer takes breaks between episodes, which are a pain to skip using the slider. On PC, I can just click the next watch party chapter. Considering this function already exists, it would make sense to port it to the mobile platform.

  7. Fix this:

    The iOS app regularly resets the playback position of the video after unpausing a VOD. May also be a result of pausing, leaving, then re-entering the app. This makes VODs a pain to watch on mobile.

  8. While in fullscreen mode: allow the stream to go from landscape to landscape flipped without having the 'auto rotate' Android setting on.

    The YouTube app works this way and I find myself missing it more than I expected when using the Twitch app.

    In case the above isn't clear...
    1. Auto rotate is off
    2. Full screen stream
    3. Orient device to landscape
    4. Rotate device 180° (flipped landscape)
    5. Stream also rotates 180°

  9. Since weeks emotes sent from mobile app causes a bug that normal emotes like <3 gets to &lt\;3 (html code for the heart). The bot moderators recognize this as spam and often delete it from the chat.

  10. I only follow about 5 streamers so not all are on at some point, the Home Screen widget on iOS was really great since I could see currently live channels I follow.

    Now it pops up with recommended channels which I have no interest in. It’s not that I’m not interested in the channels shownx it’s that I only want to see channels I follow there.

    It’s now hard to see when channels I follow are live since it doesn’t stand out anymore and there’s always something live.

    Please revert back to how it was before

  11. BTTV is an amazing application that helps a lot of users with minor things that become a necessity after using for so long. I love being able to see all the BTTV emotes on twitch but the twitch application doesn't allow these. I also am a BTTV Dark user and on mobile we have to stare at the white background. They have recently put in a host button that shows under the channel you are watching. This means we can instantly click a button and boom the hosting is done for us with ease. Endless options for many people will…

  12. Hey everyone,

    someone who has their entire phone in English (since most stuff is English regardless, and others can be set), think the twitch app should really have the option to have the app in a specified language. It's great twitch tries to translate, but for me it's really uncomfortable to see the app in my mother language.

    Tl;Dr change app language

  13. 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…

  14. Please add the option to disable the video previews in the list of followed channels (added in a recent update). This "feature" only impedes my ability to browse my LONG list of followed channels, making the process of seeing who is online much more difficult and time-consuming. To be clear, I want text only, the way the list used to be. Please.

    Upon updating the app, my immediate reaction was "this is annoying, I hate it; where is the option to revert this change?" However, combing through the options for the app does not appear to offer this option. Why…

  15. Hello,

    It would be helpful to add the feature of video statistics into the app, so we could troubleshooting problems better.

    Thanks!

  18. when someone is banned from a channel and a reason for the ban was added (/ban <user> <reason>) the reason isn't displayed on mobile twitch, even if it is displayed in browser.

    this leads to multiple unban requests going "why was i banned" even when a clear reason was given, which wastes both the single unban request and the time of moderators, and disincentivises the use of the <reason>-feature.

  19. Change the way to buy subscriptions back to tokens, everything else is great in terms of the new design for the mobile app. Tokens were easier and allowed you to support other streamers at once instead of buying separately. (Extended subs, gifting subs, etc)

  20. There needs to be an option that lets you resize the Chat. The Chat takes away a good chunk of the screen when it is not minimized and it makes the Stream significantly smaller and since I like reading the chat I would like to have both on my screen without the Stream getting too small. Also, on my iPhone 12 on the right side of the Chat there is some kind of “black bar” with nothing on it which also takes away a little bit of the screen and it would also be nice if that would get removed.
