  2. It's pretty clear the current teams responsible for all of these app developments are failing miserably at their job. These apps have been broken for years. In the instance of AppleTV the new app updates did nothing to address the real issues people have been complaining about on this forum. I'm proposing a WILD idea of letting this incompetent department go, and outsourcing to an agency that's actually capable.

    The reality is this isn't difficult work, in fact it's VERY straight forward stuff.
    UX design is SIMPLE.
    Coding is SIMPLE.
    Adhering to device architecture is SIMPLE.
    Letting go of incompetent…

  3. Why remove any ability for users to chat directly via an AppleTV, and enforce QR codes on TV screen to be scanned just to “Join The Conversation” in chat on an entirely different device, and needing Twitch app to be installed to only open Chat-only Mode for same stream; when, chat window is already open and ready to be used on AppleTV via Twitch (tvOS) app.

    An AppleTV remote can already use Siri/buttons to talk/type; plus, an iPhone can also sync with an AppleTV to be used as remote control without having to even have Twitch (iOS) app open at…

  5. I find the new apple tv app very good, but now when I choose a live stream, the live options do not disappear and it stays in a constant loop, it never disappears. It is very annoying, especially if you only want to watch the stream in full screen.

    I hope you can fix it as soon as possible. Thanks for everything!

  6. While watching certain streamers on my TV app the screen will blink/flash a black screen almost every 2 seconds. I suggest you fix this quick as it will cause seizures. I don’t think you guys would like a lawsuit from me cause you hurt me or a loved one that has issues with situations like this. You’re lucky it hasn’t caused a problem already. Fix it , or I’ll be rich.

  7. Why did you get rid of chat for vods with the newest update for tv and PlayStation apps. Why not just give an option, don’t just take away. It makes some of the streams I watch pointless now as the chat interaction with it gives it its identity. What a STUPID decision.

  8. For the last week or so I keep getting the “oh bummer” message while watching a stream. Only way to get it working again is to close the app and open it.

  9. Delay was introduced in the latest app update. Prior to this, the latency was <5s, and on par with mobile and web playback. The new Android TV app plays back with a latency well above 15 seconds, which makes it very difficult to interact with streams in a real time manner.

  10. The stream is more than just the streamer and their game, it is also their chat. Not being able to view the chat on a VOD makes it feel like I'm missing part of the stream when watching a VOD.

  12. The current version of twitch tv apps is horrible. It lags and cannot 1080p even on vids when it used to do it easily. Also no chat in vods. Seen on fire and android TV

  14. With the last update to the AndroidTV app in the week before January 29th 2023 there was a change in behavior when you press a button when in fullscreen.

    Now the button action gets applied. So to get the UI back I need to press a button. If I press OK it will execute the action the the at that time not visible focus is on which is dangerous as it could be on Unfollow or Back or at least annoying that it does something.

    Pressing left or right start scrolling the timeline when watching a VOD. When watching live…

  15. I have a PC and AppleTV in the same room. 100% of the time, Raids will fail to move channels on the AppleTV. Please investigate so AppleTV will follow a Raid to the raided channel and not leave us abandoned on the original channel. I think this is why we are seeing so many incomplete raids and hosts are trying to send Raid 'shuttles' when they notice only 95% of their viewership correctly raided over to the new channel.

  16. My google tv updated the twitch app. The new UI is ugly, not user-friendly, lags a lot, the quality is worse, and I can't send emotes on my TV anymore. I have no idea how this change went through. Please roll back to a previous version.

  18. Update casting a stream (Chromecast)

    Recently, you updated the Twitch Chromecast App with the actual design, improving vods, etc...

    But i use the "cast to" with the Twitch mobile app, an it carries me to the old design from the Chromecast App, and without chat (we don't have an option to put the chat in the Casting format).

    So please, update the Casting format to the actual Chromecast App Update.
    Thanks.

  19. I was updated to a more recent version of the Twitch TV app. The unfollow button is often defaulted, and it is VERY easy to mispress the button.

    If I am already following the streamer, this option should be tucked away where it can't be pressed as easily. It is obnoxious, and could undo the user's following date for the streamer.

  20. The most recent update to the Android TV version of the app is lacking in functionality and preformance. The app was visually more appealing before as well as having better functionality and quality of streams.

    The decision to completely remove the ability to chat via the app is poorly thought out at best, and plain lazy at worst. On my Nvidia Shield I have the ability to use voice to text and to connect an external keyboard to type. Why do I need to use my phone to chat when there is literally already a spot for the function to…
