Revert Android TV update or re-add removed features
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 go. It simply doesn't make sense. You have also removed the live preview feature from the browsing part of the app. This is not only a unnecessary removal but has actually resulted in a poorer preformance of the app.
The apps preformance has also seemingly fallen off a cliff. When I select streams they are never at the maximum available quality despite me having 1000mb/s download. Streams also take 5+ seconds to load in most cases as opposed to being available almost immediately before. This is likely due to the fact that hovering over a chanel no longer provides a live preview. Why is this removed?
The app also generally is more cluttered and less appealing. Everything has this giant extra white background that appears around it when you hover over it. This white box is blinding compared to the darker features of most games and also covers large swaths of the screen. You are also unable to dismiss the, for some reason larger than before, UI that appears when viewing a stream. This UI also needlessly darkens the screen by a large amount while selecting stream quality or navigating to enable/disable the now lackluster chat box.
Please immediately revert this massive downgrade disguised as a "update", or commite to fixing these glaring issues and readding the core feature of chatting to the app.
All streams also have constant lags every few seconds, which is awfully irritating. The ads that start upon entering a stream never play properly, I only hear the audio, but my screen remains black.
