  1. 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

  2. Show all the followed channels rather than the first couple. Currently only the first few (depending on resolution) are shown (or at least fill the bar). This makes it so that top streamers aren't eating up all the viewers. Also, make it so the channels with the least viewers aren't placed on the bottom. Make it based on time the stream has started or something, so again larger streamers don't eat up all the viewers. Second, move the friends panel, it doesn't belong there on the followed channels bar.

  3. It would be nice to add "always on top" option on Twitch. Because, many times I'm doing something else, in browser or , work from home and I decrease size of of Twitch window in top corner and work other thing. If there is always on top feature, it would prevent Twitch window disappearing when clicking other things on PC/Mac.

  4. 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?

  5. I would like a refresh button for the stream I'm currently watching. When the stream gets delayed, chat gets ahead of the stream and the only way to "resync" the two is to go to someone else's channel and return to the original channel.

  6. Scrolling up in a twitch chat that has filled its 100-300 message limit(whatever the chat history limit is), while many new chat messages are being sent makes it impossible to read the chat message you scrolled up to read. Please, the web browser version handles this perfectly, freezing the chat viewport on the text you scrolled up to, rather than letting new chat messages push what you wanted to see upwards.

  8. Either let us listen to Twitch with no video or stop forcing me to watch in 1080p. One streamer I follow's streams are forced into 1080p half the time, but not all the time. He says there's nothing he can do about it, so could you just fix it Twitch? My internet can't handle it most of the time.

  10. Please make RERUNS part of the host options. Doesn't mix with LIVE streams, when the Streamer isn't there and its just a RERUN. I suggest its own RERUN slot or put them in another category other then Live, because they aren't!

  12. When watching VODs it would be awesome to add some quick rewind/forward controls- eg rewind 10 secs/1min/5min/10min/30min/1hr

    With long VODs of many hours, trying to rewind a small amount with mouse and the playbar is difficult- some quick back/fwd preset time buttons would be much more useful

  13. I would LOVE to have a don't show me Streams by <game title> in the "Featured Broadcasters" section.

    Some people selectively watch TV & Movies based on content or ratings why not streams?

    If someone doesn't like or offended by violent games like CoD, PUBG or 7DTD they should have the option not to ever see these titles on the main app. Same goes for "Toxic Communities" like LoL & HearthStone.

  14. I often go to channels where I like the game and the streamer but I can't stand their choice in music and often leave because of this. Would it be possible to allow streamers to separate their music from their voice/game audio? Maybe make all 3 separate so viewers can choose what they want to listen to and adjust volume on each as desired?

  15. I'm not able to have the fullscreen mode "saved" so that when I open the app, it starts in fullscreen. It wasn't an issue before Twitch started with all these updates. But now it is...HELP!!!

  17. Enable the view counter and time streamed as a part of the overlay when in full screen. Make these numbers only appear on hover/ mouse over.

  18. It would be a good idea to add a custom Disconnect Protection image to allow channels to keep their branding through a brief disconnect for example a custom image which informs the viewer of a potential issue.

  19. Hey you ever open the twitch app and UH OH missed your favorite stream by a few weeks so you go to look for it but it's not the latest video any more. "what am I to do????" you think to yourself.
    Welllllllllllll if you look closely there's a button that says "videos" but when you click the button it opens your browser. why?! you built an app to watch twitch and forgot V.O.D. and clips. get them in there.

  20. When in fullscreen mode on the desktop app I instinctively hit escape to exit fullscreen mode and yet nothing happens. This feels like a default action that should be built in.
