  1. Change "My Games" Installation Folder

    I feel like having the option to change where I want to install the games from my Twitch Library is very essential. Instead of only be given the option of drives in my computer, have the option to set a specific folder is needed!

    • Can't find games?

      Seems the app somehow forgot where my WoW folder was, even though it's smart enough to know that I have WoW open and running.

      When I try to update my mods, I get "We didn't find any games. Let's try this again!".When I try "Locate Game", I select the WoW folder and it says, "Game was not added because that instance is already tracked by Twitch". Interesting phrasing there, everyone LOVES to be tracked these days, so I'm sure no one has a reason to be paranoid before allowing a full scan for games... When I reluctantly did scan, it…

          • Please bring the 'My Games' function to the Twitch app for Mac!

            I would love to take advantage of the free indie games, but that's kind of impossible if they're not available for Mac

            • Audio only for Desktop App

              Can we get an audio only option for the Desktop App. The Mobile App has that option and it would be pretty nice if we can get the same feature for the Desktop App. Also the browser version too. Twitch as a radio/streaming channel would be pretty sick in my opinion

              • Please figure out what is wrong with the connection to your servers

                I'm attempting to export my custom minecraft modpacks to people who would like to use them, however, the desktop app is having near-constant connection problems, which are interrupting the export process, causing it to produce corrupted folders instead of usable zip files. Once every few minutes, the twitch app window goes white, and displays a message saying, "the internet connection was lost, retrying." I am using a LAN connection directly to my router, and none of the other internet-dependent applications I use are having any problems to speak of, so it is my belief that this error can only be…

                • Start minimized to system tray

                  Would like it if the Twitch app could start minimized to system tray.
                  I understand that this is the most important app I could have on my PC, but as it is now i close it to the tray every single time my PC boots.

                  • Make Twitch Games Available For Mac!!!

                    Mac is not supported for the twitch games. This needs to change! I have a mac and I have a couple of games from Twitch Prime that I cannot play because it is not supported! Please fix this.

                    • VOD playback in desktop app instead of opening webpage.

                      I'd like to watch VODs in the app, not open them in a link. That defeats the purpose of the desktop app.

                        • update/manage game identities

                          edit/update game identities. This has been asked before but given how its ignored as a suggestion despite listing 5 year old characters in Warcraft that were like level 99 and not updated recently its kinda proof its not done automatically, nor can we remove characters we want to. If the feature is there it NEEDS to be made visiable, I just spent an hour looking for it, both manually and googleing it to no avail.

                          • Chromecast Extension on Desktop App

                            For years there has been some funky issues with Twitch on Chromecast devices, though recently things have been better.

                            I downloaded your desktop app today but was disappointed to see that it did not have a Chromecast integration. Can we get this?

                                • My Games tab for Mac

                                  I have Amazon Prime and no way to play the games I have from it. I wouldn't even have Twitch if I didn't see I could play games on it so I don't see any reason to keep it without that.

                                      • VOD Playing in Desktop app and not Browser

                                        The app would be more better, if the VOD, Channels and a lot of other stuff wouldn't open into the browser.
                                        Also would it be nice if I could enter links, friends send me, so I musn't search.

                                        • CPU usage is out of control.

                                          Twitch app while streaming. ui service shows 50-70% cpu usage. blocking everything but stream knocks it down to 17%. Really needs an optimization pass. It's not a rough hot cpu usage as nothing bogs. As long as i'm only doing twitch but who actually does that?...
