  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. I want to be able to listen to streams using set of powerfull voice commands on my Google Home Mini or Nest plus Amazon Echo devices with Alexa.

    On top of that i wanna mannage my stream using voice commands to; place markers, host n raid channels, cast votes, mute chat, make a clip, kick viewers even.

    Thirdly I wanna have ability to cast chat audibly using TTS sapi5 voices to the device, and create exceptions and replacment phrase lexicon to what is being read. Text to speach chat would be getting simultaniously played along with a streams audio.

  4. 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?

  5. When watching a stream on Apple 4k tvOS, the stream's window appears to "Shake" horizontally really badly. The chat window on the right is perfectly fine, so it doesn't seem like its a tv issue.

    It seems to be worse on some streams more than others. But I do not see the shaking on any other platforms.

    Some streams shake so badly that I just cannot watch it.

  7. I love the fact my LG smartv got your app, but i can't login my account on it, so when i watch my favored streamers by him i dont get stuff like channel points or can interact in chat in any form... It's sad because watching twitch on TV has became more fun than on PC to me, so... this is my feedback.

  8. 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

  10. 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.

  11. I used to use an app where you could have up to like 6 streams at once all live and you could really easily switch between them without any lag or loading. Put it this way twitch! 4 streams At once! 4 times As many ads!

  12. Currently Twitch chat on the LG app allows chat with still images only,
    with a limited amount of emotes available total. As a result, a lot of the chat context is lost due to the emote name being listed rather than the animation. This would go a long way in improving the user experience and making the app the premier Twitch viewing experience on the TV. Allowing BetterTTV emotes, which are already able to be integrated on the PC client, would also add to the chat experience.

  14. I think it could be really helpful to sort the Followed Channels by Recently Viewed instead of Date Followed, Old to New. Right not we have to scroll all the way to the end, past many creators who we infrequently watch. This would make the app much easier to use, especially when going to find VODs. Thanks!

  15. 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.

  16. A feature that's available on the Desktop and the iOS apps that isn't on Apple TV. It would be nice to be able to browse streams without having to quit the current stream. There would also need to be a mechanism to dismiss a PIP stream the way there is on the Desktop and iOS apps.

  18. I follow a lot of channels, but a majority of the time, I'm looking for one game in particular to watch. It'd be nice to be able to filter my Live page (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/following/live) by game.

  19. 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.
