  1. "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…

  2. 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

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. (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…

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Dear twitch,

    “gamestreams” is a great app for LG smart tvs (webOS) that allows one to watch twitch streams directly on the tv without the need of using some other casting devices. Unfortunately after the API V3+5 change/shutdown the app suddenly stopped working. I’m sure there are lots of people watching twitch on LG tvs and we’d like to able to do so in the future. After reaching out to the developer of the gamestreams app i got the following answer from Reemet Paabo:

    “Yes Twitch.tv is closing down the V3 and V5 API endpoints that we are using and…

  16. Title. Given the stability and usability of the app as a whole, having to /attempt/ to cycle through several screens worth of channels is already a gamble. Please allow the Fire TV app to have an option to filter by language, or embed the setting within the user account settings.

  17. The Samsung TV twitch application has been removed due to it not being official.

    Now thousands of people have to go out and buy a chromecast ect to watch twitch on there Samsung TV. Please make an official twitch app so these thousands of people can watch twitch without having to buy anything else.

    The main reason I bought my TV was because there was a twitch app.

  18. Currently, in the AndroidTV Twitch-App, you can only move through a VOD by 10 second-steps, which can be really annoying, for example, if you try to skip the first 2 hours of a VOD.
    I would greatly appreciate an option to put in a time to jump to inside a VOD, so you don't have to click forward a few hundred times anymore.

  19. Twitch offers this feature: https://www.twitch.tv/yourchannel/dashboard/settings/moderation "Non-Mod Chat Delay", but currently it is only available for 2-second increments. I understand that this was probably designed with human moderation in mind, but this option is also very useful for automatic moderation with chat bots, but the delay would have to be lower. I ask for this setting to be available in 0.1-second increments so it can be set to e.g. 0.3 seconds or 0.5 seconds to prevent messages from showing up for brief moments before a bot times out the user.
