  1. On the latest version, you cannot gif rid of the bottom icons while viewing a stream in full screen mode (without chat), and the screen flickers as well.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. When watching a stream on Apple 4k tvOS, the stream's window appears to "Shake" horizontally really badly. The chat window on the right is perfectly fine, so it doesn't seem like its a tv issue.

    It seems to be worse on some streams more than others. But I do not see the shaking on any other platforms.

    Some streams shake so badly that I just cannot watch it.

  6. 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.

  7. I follow a lot of channels, but a majority of the time, I'm looking for one game in particular to watch. It'd be nice to be able to filter my Live page (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/following/live) by game.

  8. on Fire TV, the boundaries of the screen don't adjust correctly like other apps do. Because of this there is a portion of the video that is off screen, some TV's have options to adjust the edge scanning, but not all do and it can be annoying to change it every time just to watch twitch.

  9. It stutters, won't play 1080p or 60fps, the interface is very slow and laggy. The app used to be very good, what happened. This web-interface-api-nonsense has to stop. It crashes or stops mid-stream, if the stream starts in the first place. On my PS5, at least the picture quality is good (1080 60p), but it is also unstable and stops streams that work on my phone. Make a native app again, like on my phone.

  11. so I have this problem for over 1 year and I'm sure it's not from my end. The thing is when a streamer that I watch (any of them) decides to end their stream and raid someone else, I can't follow the raid train neither on the TV app (its an LG SmartTV) nor on the FireStick TV app. It just stops and I am left on the streamer's recent broascasts page. I would love to use twitch on tv more but this experience is kind of disruptive as I like to leave it on while I do chores around…

  12. The Apple TV app is now nearly useless because everything is sorted by recommendations instead of viewers, and there’s no way to change it like you can on other platforms. Until Twitch is able to make its recommendations actually be decent, change the default sort back to sorting by viewers.

    Ana responded

    Thank you for your report. We realize the recent experience with different apps, including Apple TV might be frustrating, and we do apologize for that. An underlying change in the technology used to power the Twitch TV application on Apple TV, Fire TV, Android TV, PS4, PS5, Xbox and Xbox Series X/S devices required us to rewrite those applications, resulting in reduced functionality and features. While our teams work toward improving the experience in the coming months, please continue sharing your feedback with us. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

  13. 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.

  14. Better integration of Twitch and easier/more reliable use of Twitch via Alexa/Echo devices and Fire TV... I should be able to easily change channels and watch twitch streams via Echo Show 8/10/5 as well as stream Twitch audio to an Echo Studio Stereo Pair... the Echo skill is unreliable at best, and makes it difficult to change between streamers... and the Fire TV skill does not support raids and just ends the channel...

  15. I am tired of having to reselect the quality from 1080p to 480p every single time that I put on a new stream. Please remember my choice of 480p as the default for every channel

  16. Would appreciate to have an additional option to choose to the latency / lag on the LG TV app. I noticed that on the Twitch app on my mobile, I get a twitch stream around 4-5 seconds ahead than on the LG TV.

    I appreciate that it is possible to select video quality like 360p, 420p, 720p, 1080p, etc. But currently, I do not see an option to get a faster latency from the streamers stream. The value here is getting to discuss with chat as real-time as possible. Since topics jump quickly the bigger the viewer count, sometimes the…

  17. The Apple TV app often gets left behind, and one of these ways that it's been forgotten about is in the animated emotes department. They still don't animate when you have chat on screen. It would be really nice if someone could look over the Apple TV app and get it back in line with the rest of Twitch's apps!

  18. When looking at chat on my TV the dark names can be very difficult to read on the dark background. Having the dark user names outlined with a light color would make them readable from a distance.

  19. Pretty severe bug, when I watch a live stream and a streamer runs an ad, after the ad is done the stream lags horribly. I counted 1 frame per 4 seconds until the stream freezes and I have to restart the stream.
    Please fix this fast!

  20. I have LG Oled TV. Everytime I use Twitch app, I have to hide chat before getting full screen of the stream. I suppose most of the users who watch streams from TV don't want to interact with chat since writing is not very convenient. I suggest you remove chat from default view from televisions or give users a chance to choose the default view.
