  1. It would make the chromecast experience a lot better if I could have the option to show the chat on the side, just like it would on my PC in theater mode.

  3. Using the unofficial Twitch apps that existed previously on tvOS, it was extremely easy to navigate stream recordings that are often 5-6 hours long. Since the official Twitch app debuted, all the third-party apps have ceased development, so we're stuck with the bad video controls of the official app. This could be solved by using the standard tvOS video control APIs that almost every other app uses. Examples:


    1. While watching a long Overwatch stream, when the streamer was queuing for a match, I could easily tap the right edge of the trackpad to jump forward in small increments, until I…

  6. I have been using the Twitch app on the Chromecast with Google TV, and notice multiple times that the Chromecast will go to sleep while watching a stream after around 10 mins. Very frustrating.

    Twitch app version: 6.0.0
    Android TV OS version: 10

    Please let me know if this should be posted or communicated elsewhere.

  7. I recently purchased the new chromecast with google tv, love it and love Twitch!

    The problem is that using the twitch app on my TV routinely "times out" and sends the tv to ambient mode which shows pictures and the weather. I haven't been able to figure out how long it takes to time out but sometimes it seems like less than 10 minutes other times it plays for hours ... Might be stream dependent, but I am not sure what that would have to do with it.

    I found some instructions on disabling the energy optimization I'm the chromecast…

  8. The "Followed Games" section row, keeps disappeared when I try to navigate to that row in the Nvidia shield TV Twitch app, and then it is only "Live channels" and "Followed channels" left on that screen.

    This is annoying me to no end. Please fix?

  9. Even I watch a stream I can't see how many and reedem channel points on Fire TV app.
    It can be helpful integrate the button as for pc/ios app to reedem directly on the tv app.

  10. Could be a button on main window of stream (on mobile, like settings or clip button) or settings menu selection that creates popup menu. Opens a list of available smart TVs on current LAN that can accept the mobile request. Will open smart TV app, then open to specific stream.

  11. I would like to watch my streamers games on tv, my TV is a 4k samsung and the platform is tizen, but it has several gaming applications that I do not use there, I would love your app, would be comfortable and spend more time watching games league of legends on my TV. From what I've noticed, all the applications on the Tizen platform are extremely small and efficient. Thank you and good luck.

  12. Make app available to Sky Q customers. I think this would open your fan base even more. Most good streaming apps becoming available on Sky Q

  13. (translated from German by DeepL)

    Hello, Twitch,

    since the release of your new Twitch app for AppleTV I have the following criticisms:

    Home page:
    - Where can I set "my language" (german) so that under "Channels in my language" I am no longer shown ALL international channels with ALL languages?

    Live streams:
    - There is no display of how long the current stream has been running (uptime).

    Stream recordings ("Earlier broadcasts"):
    - The date from when the stream or clip is from is missing - both in the thumbnails and in the enlarged view.
    - The rewind and fast forward…

  14. I really would like to watch my favorite streamers in my television, without the necessity of plug my notebook in the TV. And how my is from Panasonic, would be cool if you develop an app to the Panasonic TVs (and to another enterprises TVs).

  15. https://blog.twitch.tv/hundreds-of-new-ways-to-pay-for-channel-subscriptions-29bd9ef6eef3#.fq93pf85k

    Now do that with Bits and get rich.
    I cannot buy Bits if you don't add it.
    Many many people don't use the credit card for the internet.

    So if you want to make more cash, add it.

  16. 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.

  18. The current Android TV only has fast forward/rewind buttons with no image preview. This is less functionality than a VCR. Scrubbing (with image previews) is a must have for any video player. At least add image previews to the fast forward/rewind

  19. Some Channels don't allow links to be posted in the chat, including twitch.tv links.

    I believe this is mostly to prevent spam and unwanted advertisement.

    An exception for twitch.tv links wouldn't hurt so we can post twitch-related content (maybe with a Option for Streamer's own Channel-related content only).

    ..This way I can share a Clipped stream highlight other than Reddit.

  20. Twitch is the leading streaming platform. People stream themselves playing video games, being creative, going out IRL or even just eating food.

    I have heard streamers saying "i wish i could watch this with you together" soooo often. But i think Amazon is in a position to make that possible too, having not only Twitch but also Amazone Prime.

    There are a lot of people on Twitch who have Amazon Prime membership and therefore a big amount of Amazon Prime users are people who like to watch Streamers. So my idea is a new streaming platform for Prime users. There…
