  1. I was updated to a more recent version of the Twitch TV app. The unfollow button is often defaulted, and it is VERY easy to mispress the button.

    If I am already following the streamer, this option should be tucked away where it can't be pressed as easily. It is obnoxious, and could undo the user's following date for the streamer.

  3. 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.

  4. Nowadays it is undoubted that Twitch is not present on Roku Express devices. We have to forcefully resort to other unconventional means, submitting ourselves to flawed applications that do not meet our expectations.
    We urge Twitch's developers and senior leaders to put pride aside and competently grant their customers the right to watch lives through our Roku.

    Please!

    Sincerely,
    a lover of games and lives. Twitch's number one fan.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  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.

  13. The recent update (2022-09-05?) to the LG webOS app moved the (Un)Follow button from the bar to a separate, in-stream, button.
    This also made it so that you no longer (on reflex) can press Right button x4 + Enter to activate chat, (which you want to see, ref: https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310225-twitch-applications-tv-apps/suggestions/41734411-on-the-lg-webos-app-make-it-so-the-twitch-chat-do)

    because the movement of the indicator STOPS (bug/badUI!) at the Unfollow button, which instead causes you to accidentally unfollow your favorite streamer and lose your YEARS LONG followage!

    PLEASE revert the UI change and put the (Un)Follow button back to the bar where it was placed perfectly fine before.

  15. Can you roll the Fire TV app back to the old UI please? Selecting a followed channel should not default to the Unfollow button & the ability to scroll back through the entire catalogue of VoD contact needs to be reinstated. If I'm a few weeks behind on a streamed series like Critical Role, I need to be able to get to where I left off (ike I used to be able to do), but now anything more than a few weeks old is inaccessible without going through search, which only brings up some of the things I search for…

  17. Would appreciate to have an additional option to choose to the latency / lag on the LG TV app. I noticed that on the Twitch app on my mobile, I get a twitch stream around 4-5 seconds ahead than on the LG TV.

    I appreciate that it is possible to select video quality like 360p, 420p, 720p, 1080p, etc. But currently, I do not see an option to get a faster latency from the streamers stream. The value here is getting to discuss with chat as real-time as possible. Since topics jump quickly the bigger the viewer count, sometimes the…

  19. The idea to remove pre-roll ads at the beginning of a raid was marked as completed and appears to be working on desktop, but I'm still getting ads immediately upon raids on the tvOS app.

    This is incredibly frustrating as I am forced to miss the streamer's reaction from the raid.
