  2. I want to be able to listen to streams using set of powerfull voice commands on my Google Home Mini or Nest plus Amazon Echo devices with Alexa.

    On top of that i wanna mannage my stream using voice commands to; place markers, host n raid channels, cast votes, mute chat, make a clip, kick viewers even.

    Thirdly I wanna have ability to cast chat audibly using TTS sapi5 voices to the device, and create exceptions and replacment phrase lexicon to what is being read. Text to speach chat would be getting simultaniously played along with a streams audio.

  3. Add function to login into your account on the app and availability to watch vods. Currently you can only watch live channels.

  4. On PC, when you finish one VoD, it basically loads up another vod for you to watch. I would like to see that functionality on the twitch TV app, as I enjoy putting on streamers vods while I play a game, or when I lay down for bed, and most of the streamers I watch don't stream for more than 4 or 5 hours, the current TV app will basically shut off once the video ends.

  5. When streaming VODs at 1080p (perhaps more, my TV is 1080p) after about 1-2 minutes, the stream will stop and load indefinitely. This happens on my Chromecast Ultra and Chromecast v2/v1.

  6. It has the same issues as in 2016.
    Please fix this.
    1080p stutters.
    Some streams just visually freezes for a second now and then.
    Some people dont have the NEWEST tv so you cant use the smarttv to get the app. Please Twitch, fix this!

  7. I love the fact my LG smartv got your app, but i can't login my account on it, so when i watch my favored streamers by him i dont get stuff like channel points or can interact in chat in any form... It's sad because watching twitch on TV has became more fun than on PC to me, so... this is my feedback.

  8. Watching twitch on the Fire TV (Stick) app is actually possible since the updates last year, but some features are still missing.

    I logged into my account and was missing the tab for VODs of my followed channels.
    So there is no easy way to find out what streams of your followed channels you may have missed. Even if you know you missed one, you have to go to their page first which especially is a nuisance if you follow alot of channels which you have to scroll through. Using the remote control to search for a channel is even…

  9. "Guys, you should follow Emma , seriously! She is an amazing music streamer."

    When streamer Dan said this, I wanted to be able to do these things in this order:

    1) figure out who this "Emma" was that he was talking about (a mod's !so shoutout helped here)

    2) easily get to Emma's channel to follow her

    3) come right back and continue watching Dan

    4) be able to check out Emma in more depth later (this is already easy, once I'm following Emma)

    Now, the feature request(s).

    SCENARIO A: (less work to implement, but also less intuitive and less…

  10. Not really a TV app but closest category I could find, I think an Alexa Video Skill would be great for twitch as I would love to be able to watch streams on my Echo Show, seems strange that this isn't already a thing considering that Twitch is owned by Amazon lol, obv would then be able to utilise features such as connected Echo devices for surround sound as well as the 3D Sound and Subwoofer products they also sell for this ecosystem

  12. Using the unofficial Twitch apps that existed previously on tvOS, it was extremely easy to navigate stream recordings that are often 5-6 hours long. Since the official Twitch app debuted, all the third-party apps have ceased development, so we're stuck with the bad video controls of the official app. This could be solved by using the standard tvOS video control APIs that almost every other app uses. Examples:

    1. While watching a long Overwatch stream, when the streamer was queuing for a match, I could easily tap the right edge of the trackpad to jump forward in small increments, until I…

  13. The current Android TV only has fast forward/rewind buttons with no image preview. This is less functionality than a VCR. Scrubbing (with image previews) is a must have for any video player. At least add image previews to the fast forward/rewind

  14. Transparent view of chat on the web browser/AppleTv etc. similarly to the mobile version. Lastly, if something could tell if you are watching on appletv, roku, firetv and it automatically asks if you want to just view chat from your smartphone.

  15. (translated from German by DeepL)

    Hello, Twitch,

    since the release of your new Twitch app for AppleTV I have the following criticisms:

    Home page:
    - Where can I set "my language" (german) so that under "Channels in my language" I am no longer shown ALL international channels with ALL languages?

    Live streams:
    - There is no display of how long the current stream has been running (uptime).

    Stream recordings ("Earlier broadcasts"):
    - The date from when the stream or clip is from is missing - both in the thumbnails and in the enlarged view.
    - The rewind and fast forward…

  16. In the popular tab, please make some easy way to display streams only in default language. As far as I can tell, the only way to do this right now is to go to the search bar and type in "English" etc.
    It is quite a hassle to scroll past all of these other language streams that I cannot understand.

  17. There is to much audio lag compared to the video, it's not even fun to watch when the voice is so far ahead of the video

  18. I leave my account logged in on the family smart TV. I'd like to block channels not marked family-friendly behind a PIN if possible. Even better, I'd like to consider certain games as not family friendly. We often see shooters marked family friendly.

  20. Currently the only way to get the currently logged in user it to parse an array from
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users

    This is a request to add back an endpoint that only returns the single object of the current user. At paths such as:
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/user
    https://api.twitch.tv/helix/users/@me
