  1. Allow us to sub on mobile for the same price as on the desktop. There should be no reason this wasn't how it was on release.

  2. I'd love to use the Stream-Manager on my Android tablet (with a magnetic keyboard attached), but the feature is portrait only for some reason. It would be great to be able to respont to comments on the tablet's physical keyboard.

  3. When i chromecast a twitch vod (assuming it happens on live streams too) to my tv and pause the vod, the cast will close after only a few mins. My other apps like Hulu, YouTube, and Netflix don't do this and can be paused for much longer. From what i understand this timeout is set by the app developer.

  4. Until the most recent update to the Android app, notifications were in the following format:

    Title: <Streamer> is streaming <Category>!
    Text: <Streamer's 'Go Live Notification' message>

    This was mostly fine, though with longer usernames or certain categories, it could be unclear which game was being played - but depending on what the streamer wrote for their Go Live Notification (GLN), it could be clarified just by pulling the notification down and reading the text section.

    But now with the latest version of the app, the notification comes in two flavours, seemingly at random. Either:

    Title: <Streamer> is live: <GLN>
    Text:…

  6. I recently upgraded my phone to the Pixel 5 with a hole punch camera in the front.

    Netflix and Youtube support this via a pinch out zoom and fills the width of the screen, it appears that the Twitch app is almost there as it seems to support a pinch out zoom but it won't go all the way over and stops with a black bar over the camera and status bar area.

    I would like the pinch out to zoom to fill the whole screen! Thank you

  7. Can we get a date/timestamp in the whisper chat function?

    Not sure how we don't have this yet!

    Especially for an ongoing chat you might not know what day a message is from

  8. Tag filtering/search doesn’t seem to be working on latest IOS version.

    Also a suggestion: allow an “or” operator with tags. I often want to search stream for multiple languages. Currently if I put in both, it will only show channels that have both tags where I want channels with either one

  9. Up until recently there was a bug on mobile (iOS), which allowed Picture-in-Picture playback while having low latency mode enabled and it worked flawlessly for me. Unfortunately that was "fixed" in a recent update.

    Could you please bring it back? It would be nice to use Picture-in-Picture without huge stream delays. Especially since it works without problems.

    Thanks :D

  10. Bring back multiple tag search, right now filtering is limited to one tag on mobile, and that kills small streamer discoverability

  11. Can we please allow the mobile Twitch app dashboard to be viewed horizontally on the mobile dashboard instead of being stuck in vertical view? Also, can we please have the stream preview on the mobile dashboard? I use my tablet to monitor my stream and it would be convenient to be able to use the dashboard view instead of the channel view to monitor my stream when using the mobile app.

  12. The YouTube app has background code that synchronizes the Bluetooth audio and video, it would be great if the twitch app did this, seen as how manufacturers are moving away from the 3.5mm jack.

    Everyone is starting to use Bluetooth earbuds, and there is a good 0.5 sec delay.

  13. I love to view all the fun moments I’ve clipped from streams and it’s a hassle to only be able to view them from a desktop website. It’d be really convenient to watch and manage them from the app.

  14. Before the last update I was able to search by the tag English to filter out other languages but now it no longer show that as an option for some reason. Not sure if something happened and it was removed but it would be very helpful to have that back please.

  15. Since I play on my couch (and only have one monitor) I'd like to have the functionality of the desktop stream manager on my mobile device. Essentially, I'd like to be able to raid channels, see the ad timer, and so on from my mobile device. Also, I'd like to be able to run my stream manager from mobile horizontally. Don't know why it's locked vertically.

  16. 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…

  17. Currently, people viewing a stream can not put their channel points into community challenges if they're on mobile. This sometimes makes them feel less than people who are watching from a PC as they aren't getting the same opportunities. It can also mean that community challenges aren't getting to 100% due to a huge number of their community being on mobile.

    My suggestion is to allow mobile users to use their points on community challenges.

  20. When watching vods or clips on the horizontal mobile player, tapping to bring up controls makes the follow, notification, and sub buttons pop up. WHY??

    When you're watching live it's not a huge deal because you don't need to use the seek bar. But watching a vod or clip, it's insanely annoying having those buttons take up a third of the screen every time you want to go back a few seconds. If I'm watching a vod from a channel I've been subbed to for a year, why I would want the option to unsub and unfollow them popping up…
