      Thanks for your feedback. Wanted to take a moment to explain why we made these UI changes. Over the past few months, we’ve been shipping quite a few features! We heard from viewers that it was a bit difficult to get favorite streams and streamers. So, we wanted to make that easier. We made 3 main improvements. 1) If you want to watch a specific streamer, we put your live channels on the left side of every page, so that you always know who is live, wherever you are on the site. 2) We also added Pulse to the front page, so that you can keep in touch with your favorite streamers even when they’re not streaming. 3) For when you’re Browsing, we grouped 5 tabs (Games, Communities, Channels, Videos, and Creative) in a single tab…called Browse. Thanks so much for sharing your feedback.

    • Some of my followed channels are not showing

      Some channels I follow are not showing in my followed list even after I click load more. Some channels I know I follow when I go to them I'm listed as not following them. Other than this I like the new lay out.

      • Followed Games should be above Top Games

        I click on Followed Games all the time for games that have less regular streamers. Conversely I almost never use Top Games. I would be happy if they were switched places. Also, I like the Followed Channels bar. It's actually pretty helpful.

          Prime Loot is completely hidden behind the UI when you expand and try to claim it. Everything else is incredibly awesome!

          • Just give me one list like it had before on the right with everyone who I'm following. The new list looks bad, and doesn't work.

            • I enjoy the slick new look!

              I'm really enjoying the new look, it's very clean and professional looking. The main page before looked kind of clustered, with the different splash art for different channels sometimes leading to an over-stimulation effect. I actually find myself browsing around on the page instead of hopping straight to the followers tab. I don't always follow the streamers I like on Twitter, so it's nice to see it here.

              An idea that occurred to me, if it hasn't already been implemented and I missed it, would be allowing some form of hashtag tracking. If a channel is advertising on Twitter about…

                Thank you for the constructive feedback. We do have future plans to address the hashtag issue that you are referring to. Stay tuned as we continue to develop the feature… :-)

              • People, stop resisting to change

                The new UI is awesome, love the way you guys separated everything. One thing though, you guys should play with change management. With such a huge community, changes like that could cause a big impact.

                  Thanks for the Feedback Klaus! We always try to rollout our features in a way that will generate value for the community and mitigate potential impact. This was a big change though! so thanks for reaching out.

                • A gaming network site, NOT a social media please.

                  This looks more like a "mini Twitter". I have no interest in knowing the recent "posts" of the channels I follow and having it "shoven into my face", like we right now basically, I personally would think it would be better to have the "recommended channels", or "similar channels" that we follow there. (something like in Youtube happens when u watch videos, u get similar videos of that type u just watched). And as I said before, Im here on twitch to follow my favorite streamer, or to search for something new, NOT to know the latest post of the…

                    Thanks for the feedback! Connecting with streamers and with each other is part of makes Twitch so awesome. Chat is great when a Channel is live, but it’s hard to connect when the stream isn’t live. So, we introduced Channel Feed about a year ago, where streamers can post changes to streaming schedules, highlights when you missed a broadcast, clips when you missed a moment.

                    If you follow a bunch of streamers and have to visit all of their Channel Pages to find out info, it can sometimes be hard to keep up. With Pulse, you can see it all in one place. We understand that getting to top games and channels on the front page is really important, and we’re working on addressing that right now.

                  • Option to disable

                    I dont want a social feed on my twitch. I use twitch to watch people steam not to see the people that i follow post on twitch. Make the games be the mainstay of twitch and the social thing be optional.

                      I’m Sheila, a Product Marketer at Twitch. Thanks so much for your feedback! Twitch has many ways for you to chat and connect with each other and with streamers (chat, whispers, Channel Feed, Pulse). Pulse cannot be disabled. We have started rolling out a new front page designed to help you more easily get to popular Games and Channels. If you don’t have it already, stay tuned!

                    • Content

                      Twitch streamers produce a ton of great content. Right now Pulse does a crappy job of showing the awesome content streamers are providing. Instead it is currently flooded with when streamers go online and updates on upcoming events. Other people currently are taking streamer’s content and posting on other websites for people to watch.

                      My idea of what pulse should be is similar of how reddit is. I personally would love it to be a place I can go to watch all the top content of all streamers/followed streamers and a place to engage with certain communities.

                      Pulse itself should…

                        Hey great feedback. Thanks for taking the time to type all of this out! We totally agree with you that Twitch streamers produce an amazing level of content quality. As we continue to develop Pulse, we constantly think about two things: 1) how can we increase the quality of content in Pulse itself 2) how can we push distribution of Pulse content in more ways. Stay tuned as we continue to develop the product.

                        • Change pulse placement

                          If you want pulse then you should add it to the side or something, or even a popout, but don't change the initial layout. I used that to see what were the most popular games and the most popular streamers. I also used the old layout to see which games were out there that I may not have heard of. So don't get rid of the old layout with the games.

We completely understand that easily getting to the most popular games and streamers is important. We’re looking into improving the front page layout to help you discover and find streamers and channels easier and faster.

                          • I have no idea why people are saying "this is for games not social media site"

                            This has always been a community for gamers and streamers. Why not make it easier to see what those streamers are doing, and be able to easily update. I think it's great. No one took the games out of Twitch. It's a huge improvement.

                            • Option to allow all followers to comment on pulse feed not just friends and subscribers.

                              I really feel like there should be an option in our account settings to allow all followers to comment on pulse feed not just friends and subscribers.

                              It would keep the community together :D

                                  One suggestion. I miss the description next to the spotlight, featured broadcasters on the front page. you guys should put the description between the name and the different selections under the name of the streamer.

                                  • nav bars cover the page/obscuring content

                                    I don't know if it's browser compatibility but the left hand nav bar cuts off content from view even when minimized.

                                      This is great stuff, good job twitch and I wonder what took you so long to get here!

                                      One comment that I'd have would be to keep the updates that I see restricted to the streamers that I follow. I don't want to see people from chat or random top streamers.

                                        I like watching streams that have a less viewers watching, that way the streamer is a lot more interactive with the chat. There should be an advance search option that lets you pick a game and lets you set a viewer count and show a stream specifically in that way without having me to keep scrolling down to find a stream with less people in it. Another Suggestion of mine is that, I would like there to be a Random Roll button. This will allow you to join a random stream every time you click it. This I think would…
