  1. 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.

  2. Hi,

    Please add option to disable "recently watched games".
    That list takes too much vertical space on my TV.

    Regards,

  3. Currently the Apple TV app can only scrub back and forth by rewinding or fast forwarding, an extremely unwieldy way of just skipping past or through content. The UI for this is also clunky.

    Most video apps on ATV allow you to jump back and forward by 10 seconds by clicking the left or right sides of the remote button, or by placing step back and step forth buttons on the virtual remote.

  4. 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.

  5. I’ve got a Bluetooth keyboard paired to my AppleTV, but I can’t use it in the Twitch app. It’d be nice!

  7. I'd like an option so you can cast twitch to your Chromecast or whatever device you use with the chat on the side, like the theater mode we have on browser/app.

  9. Please add the ability to select from multiple accounts (similar to netflix profiles) when the twitch app is opened (android tv doesn't have this, at least, not sure about other tv apps). I share my television with family and it's a pain to log out and back in every time someone else uses the television.

    I will say the twitch.tv/activate system is superb but this feature I'm requesting would make things even easier!

  10. When streaming VODs at 1080p (perhaps more, my TV is 1080p) after about 1-2 minutes, the stream will stop and load indefinitely. This happens on my Chromecast Ultra and Chromecast v2/v1.

  11. (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…

  12. 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.

  13. I love watching VODs at a faster playback speed so I can view more content faster, but this option is only on web rather than on my TV app where I prefer to watch.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. My google tv updated the twitch app. The new UI is ugly, not user-friendly, lags a lot, the quality is worse, and I can't send emotes on my TV anymore. I have no idea how this change went through. Please roll back to a previous version.

  17. My app on GoogleTV / Chromecast updated today and it’s absolutely awful. Build ID: sat-fa3f730/my-c/celadon

    Everything on the screen is cramped together, the white boxes around the highlighted stream on home page looks awful, I have a 1gb connection and auto resolution will not go with high quality video and has to be manually selected, and the streams are blown out in contrast / washed. Games and streams look awful.

  18. Please rollback version 11 to version 9 on Chromecast / appletv.

    It's the same for firetv, this version is broken als well since V10, that's why I replaced my firetv with a Chromecast. Now here the same buggy and broken version got released as well. Since you guys don't care at all for your users I think I will just uninstall it or use a third party player.

    How can you guys not have ANY QA at all with such a large user base? I don't get it...

  19. I have several suggestions for the app:

    1. They should show more followed users who are online broadcasting, since only 10 or 15 appear and the other online users with fewer viewers are not shown, only those with the most appear, the rest have to be searched manually.

    2. Allow replays and clips to be viewed from channels and save progress.

    3. That the order in which the lists appear down can be modified or that after showing those followed online, the next one shows the categories.

    4. That the framerate for streams that have 60fps be fixed, at least to fix the image…

  20. Hello,

    the twitch chat (and particularly the big purple "Sign in to chat / chat" button) is dangerous to all OLED TV, because it is basically static. It would be really nice to have a option to circumvent this. I see multiple solution for this:

    • Make an option to regularly change the twitch chat side

    • Option to remove the big, birght purple buttons

    • Chat as a transparent overlay over the stream (with option to change sides)

    Really hope that there will be an option for this. Hate to use third-party twitch apps to prevent screen burn.
