  1. The loss of functionality of V10 when compared to V9 is baffling. The redesigned UI is nigh incapable of assisting the user with finding non-live content, since the home, bowse, and category pages now only present live channels to the user.

    In the prior app version, all followed channels were listed in a dedicated row about 2 rows below the top/live followed channels row. By removing this and all other non-live content, V10 of the FireTV app delivers an experience that is order of magnitudes more cumbersome to navigate compared to the prior version.

    In the updated version users are…

  2. The followed games display at first. But as soon as you try to select one, they disappear

  4. I don't know if this was purposeful part of the update, or merely a bug, but a few weeks ago an update got pushed to all of my FireTV devices, logging me out of each. When I logged back in, only 2 or 3 of my 20+ live followed channels would display. If I login on a PC, everything seems to be fine. I use my FireTV devices to watch Twitch more than anything else, but having to manually search for my favorite streams is a major turn-off... please please please prioritize a fix for this

  5. Add different chat options to Twitch app on Amazon Fire Stick

    Like the recent IOS upgrade, I think it would be awesome to be able to toggle the chat on the Twitch firestick app to have a black background, as well as being able to toggle it to be transparent and overlaid on the right/ left hand side of the stream you're watching making having chat open on a TV much more enjoyable

  6. With the latest app update (on or around 3/30/22), when a channel loads on the FireTV app, the UI loads in front of it.

    The screen is obscured by a somewhat opaque black layer, which covers or hides the content. The channel name and information about the channel as well as action buttons (settings, show chat window, report) appear as part of this interruption.

    BUT YOU CAN’T CLOSE THE UI IMMEDIATELY, to get to the content faster. This is incredibly frustrating.

    In the previous version it was awkward, but at least doable, either by pressing up or down while on…

  8. The upgraded Fire TV app debuted this week and while there are some improvements there was one giant step backwards. At the end of streams it no longer stays with the channel when the creator does a raid and the stream just ends. Please bring following the raid back on the Fire Twitch app.

  10. 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.

  11. As of 7/18/2022 the twitch app on FireTV cannot follow raids into other channels. When a stream enters a raid the app gives a Stream Ended notification with options to either go to the previous streamer's profile or return to the home page. If nothing is selected the FireTV goes into sleep mode.

    Additionally, the preview image/video displayed for each stream in the home menu is now a static image from when I first logged in with the new version of the app. All the channel previews have been the same images for the last 3 days, which means that…

  12. When watching large channels (GDQ, Twitch's Main Channel, etc), the video constantly buffers and stutters only on the FireTV app. I have it streaming on both console, desktop and mobile to check and it always does it on those channels, but only on the FireTV app. I don't know if they use a special ingest server, or those streams are handled differently, but its only those channels, and it happens on every broadcast.

  13. 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.

  15. some streamers I can watch perfectly some freezing 10 seconds after clicking there stream. I think also animated emotes should be added to the chat on tv. When watching it’s just a picture.. same with bttv if it would work. I think aswell I’ve seen with alot of streams they start loading after 5 minutes for a few seconds and it delays the stream for how you view it. Hope my feedback helps.

  17. 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.

  20. 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...
