  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. Hi, i'd really love if you could release the Twitch app for the Samsung Series 55 Smart TV.

    Ever since the old unofficial app got removed a few years back i've checked to see if the app was available for my Samsung Series 55 Smart TV every few months, but to this day it doesn't appear when i search for Twitch on the app store.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Best regards, ghost97915

  9. Apple TV app is so busted

    Ever since they updated the Apple TV app a few months back, it is completely broken. Most streams turn black constantly and you can’t see anything. It happens every 30 seconds. The only way to fix it is to reload the stream, play/pause, or wait another 30 seconds and hope it resolves.

    On top of this, the seek bar is buggy as heck and sometimes doesn’t even disappear. Pressing the menu button doesn’t hide the seek bar either. It closes the stream.

    There is no longer any chat on VODs and you can’t chat…

  11. The current behavior when pressing back during playback is bad. It just closes the content immediately, regardless of whether the player overlay is visible or not.

    For usability to prevent accidentally closing the content, during playback the stream/VoD should only be closed when pressing back twice in a row, so:
    - If playback overlay is visible, pressing back once should hide the overlay, pressing back again should close content. This is what the native AppleTV+ app does.
    - If playback overlay is hidden, pressing back once should show the overlay, pressing back again should close content

    The current behavior is…

  12. It looks like the Twitch app was recently updated on Fire TV, and the text size is now enormous. I can only see three comments at a time most of the time, sometimes a single comment doesn't fit on screen. It's really hard to follow conversations. I thought the text size was about perfect before this update. I have a fire TV stick capable of 4k but don't have a 4k tv. Not sure if that's part of what's going on.

  14. Hello! I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for your Twitch: TV app. I really enjoy using it to watch live-streaming on my big screen TV. However, I would like to share my opinion on how to improve the quality of streaming on your TV apps. I think there is more you could do to improve streaming performance and provide a more stable connection. Maybe you can do more research and testing to find new ways to optimize and improve your streaming experience. I believe you can continue to improve the quality of your app and I look…

  15. Right now, if you want to see the chat for a stream, it has to be to the side of the stream. It looks ugly and creates black bars.

    Let us have the chat in a small box in a corner. Let us control the opacity of the background, the size and position of the box, as well as letting us switch back to the current one.

    SoundTV on android tv does this amazingly well and rather than hiding the chat like I do on appleTV I get to show it and enjoy it without it ruining the stream.

  16. After the most recent Twitch app update/redesign for Apple TV, Top Clips is now missing when going into any categories. For example, previously before the most recent update/redesign, one could go into Just Chatting, and at the bottom would be a row of Top Clips within that category. This made finding new streamers and keeping up with the latest news/drama/etc. much easier and more interesting. Please add it back!

    Also, the new design looks great! Keep up the awesome work.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. The Twitch TV App for Playstation 5 updated to the latest version (November 2022). I like the inclusion of the about me section, it provides a helpful description of what a channels' content is. The homepage now includes a selection of viewable categories -with ready to browse through channels being showcased. A welcome feature. But there may be one too many viewable categories (to browse through downwards) on the homepage. Fewer sections/ viewable categories could aid the homepage in appearing less clunky. Or an option that allows users to personally customize which categories appear on their homepage -would be wonderful.…

  20. The recent update (2022-09-05?) to the LG webOS app moved the (Un)Follow button from the bar to a separate, in-stream, button.
    This also made it so that you no longer (on reflex) can press Right button x4 + Enter to activate chat, (which you want to see, ref: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310225-twitch-applications-tv-apps/suggestions/41734411-on-the-lg-webos-app-make-it-so-the-twitch-chat-do)

    because the movement of the indicator STOPS (bug/badUI!) at the Unfollow button, which instead causes you to accidentally unfollow your favorite streamer and lose your YEARS LONG followage!

    PLEASE revert the UI change and put the (Un)Follow button back to the bar where it was placed perfectly fine before.
