  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.

  2. 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.

  3. Please add the ability to watch 1440p streams to Apple TV's app.

    The other day a stream was going at 1440p@60, and was able to watch at this resolution on the iPhone app, iPad app and PC browsers. The highest resolution offered from the Apple TV app was 720p.

    It's not a device capability issue, as the TV and Apple TV device can play at 4K@60 no issues. YouTube videos and live streams can play at 1440p@60 without issue.

  4. 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...

  5. Hi,

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

    Regards,

  6. The current version of twitch tv apps is horrible. It lags and cannot 1080p even on vids when it used to do it easily. Also no chat in vods. Seen on fire and android TV

  8. 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.

  9. Please fix whatever is wrong with the Twitch Samsung TV app available on their hub. The Twitch app works fine on our Sony and LG tvs, but on the Samsung (my main tv) it can't stream over 480p without buffering. I've went through every trouble shooting thing under the sun, including with their techs. Reinstall, uninstall, reset, one foot in, one foot out, did the hookie pookie and turned it all about. Nothing helped. I'm also a Twitch streamer and like to watch parts of my streams with my family on that tv. Think of the children...

    I've tested every…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Expected Behavior:

    Home > Live Followed Channels should include....uhhh, all of the channels that I follow that are live.

    Actual Behavior:

    Home > Live Followed Channels shows me a random set of the channels that I follow that are live. What channels are shown is almost inversely proportional to how often I watch said channels. The count of the channels shown in this section is also random. Sometimes 7, sometimes 4, just all over the place.

    In order to actually see "Live followed channels", I have to navigate to "Following" > "Live Followed Channels". Not only is this an extra…

  13. Your recent update to the TV apps seems to have removed the 'continue watching' section and also the ability to browse past a few days of past broadcasts from streamers. I would recommend bringing these back as for a lot of us we cannot watch live and so catch up on VODs and also like the ability to go back to video's that we have not completed yet. With the apps the way they are now I do not find them usable.

  16. 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.

  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. On the WebOS app for LG TV, the back button on my TV remote should make the overlay disappear rather than bringing me back to the previous screen.

    It should only bring me back to the previous screen if the overlay is not being displayed.

    Disappointed to not see this UI function not implemented in v11 pushed out 9/05/2022.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
