  2. Everyone seems to love the desktop app, but Linux users (like me) don't have that available to us. It'd be cool if we could get the app, too.

  4. Make the dashboard available in the desktop app again, or its own app, instead of opening it in your browser, because it's more convenient. It's a lot better to be able to use a browser while still being able to see the creator dashboard.

  5. Simple really, I would love there to be the ability to turn off hardware media controls within the Twitch application. I constantly listen to music while watching streams and when I use my media keys on my keyboard it not only pauses the music but also the stream which is annoying. I realize this is a very nitpick thing and I love the app overall but I would love that edition!

    Just to provide a little more context: you can do this within chrome by going to chrome://flags/ and disabling the Hardware Media Key Handling flag for the web browser.

  6. 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.

  7. Twitch has dark mode, but it would be great to have an option to automatically match system setting. This can be realized thought CSS media query "prefers-color-scheme".

    JS:
    darkMode = window.matchMedia("(prefers-color-scheme: dark)").matches; //true

  8. The apps (iOS, Android, whatever...) needs to have access to the low latency mode. Without it the app is almost unusable in my opinion.

  11. Hi,

    During my testing of using HD Textures and Shaders within Minecraft, I had identified the need to use more than 12GB RAM due to crashing when making changes to specific settings within the game.

    My suggestion is to allow the allocation of more than 12GB RAM. It would be a good idea to allow a maximum usage of 90% of total available RAM on the system. This also gives flexibility to the end user using the software.

  13. What you have right now is a great start but I feel like some important features are missing. As a new user, I find the app confusing, disorienting, and a little overwhelming when you look at it. I don't recall if there was a "Getting started" tutorial when I started Twitch for the first time, but if there isn't - there should be. Also, I'd really love and appreciate a way to view my user profile. As it stands I don't find it easy unless I type in a URL to do so, which is fine, but most programs have…

  14. It is possible to AirPlay a Twitch video stream from iOS to Apple TV. It would be great if the same could be done with the MacOS Twitch app.

  16. Currently, pop-out chat panels exist when watching a channel's livestream, but when watching a past broadcast or video, the pop-out chat option is not available. It'd be great if it could be included, as the feature is there for certain usecases anyway, but not in this case. This is very helpful to those of us who use 2 monitors, and would like to keep the video full-screen on one monitor, and keep just the chat window on a second monitor.

    Thanks in advance!

  17. Legally blind (low vision) users are frustrated by the lack of response regarding recent multiple requests for reasonable accommodation, pursuant to ADA guidelines, regarding the Twitch App not allowing Widows Magnifier to follow text insertion.

    To date, low vision users are HAVING to manually move the mouse over to where the cursor has moved out of the field of view of Windows Magnifier, because someone at Twitch WON'T comply with ADA. I expect a formal response within fifteen business days, and then our lawyer will be in touch. Okay? No! Not okay! GET IT DONE!

    This applies to DMs as…
