  1. Create a Windows 10 universal twitch app that would be the same on desktop, xbox, and Windows mobile.

  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.

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

  7. Should be a way to have users preference for light or dark theme to be saved so it is set upon login, rather than having to select the them each time a person visits the site.

  8. 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.

  11. It is pretty straight forward. Have the ability to create own playlists or favorites on Soundtrack by Twitch.
    Didn't know exactly where to suggest this, so I went here.

  12. 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!

  13. If I click a Discord link, the Discord app opens.
    If I click a Steam link, the Steam app opens.
    If I click a UPlay link, the Uplay app opens.
    If I click a Twitch link, my browser opens.

    Please add a file type "twitch link" to Windows during the app install so that we can link the app to that file type in the bwoser settings.

  14. Come on guys, I can download this stuff onto a USB and it runs without issue using WINE. Let us have our games on the platform we want. It'd be fairly trivial for you to compile the source with DXVK and other tools, judging by the fact your app is built in dotNET. Having these games on the x86 Chromebooks would be nice too.

    ****, Mac already runs on x86, so you could just run WINEBottler. Seriously, it's like zero effort.

  15. Whenever I would go searching for mods for Minecraft it would be useful if you can have it so twitch remembers its place when you click on a mod that is interesting and when you go back to the mods page it will be on that same mod instead of scroll all the way back up to the beginning. This feature was here before the new update.

  16. Make it where we can use the twitch app to go to our previously downloaded mods and use them while offline. During this pandemic theres no telling how many people lost connection.

  17. For the Mac Desktop app, I was wondering if the light/dark theme could sync up with our settings so that it will change along with our wallpaper, similar to how Twitch on iPhone. The visual change helps when I use Twitch for long periods of time.

  18. The streamer you are currently on has their emotes pinned to the top of the chat window for easy access, followed by all your other subscribed emotes under that (in some ordering that I can't figure out).

    You want to show love for the channel you just raided FROM but you have to scroll through your list of emotes to find that recently raided from streamer. Please pin CURRENT streamer emotes to top of list followed by LAST VISITED channel and then whatever weird order you are using. This will make it easy to show your support to the streamer…

  19. Chat in game overlays are all over the place and we really need to search for one app that does that like streamlabs or restream. Can we have twitch their own in game chat overlay that when we go live we don't have to rely on third-party apps because for me the chats are the most important thing to notice and also for small streamers they should have a chat notification and it will really work for them because there's no chat traffic yet and they can interact with the viewer 1:1 most of the small streamers doesn't have their…

  20. I'm absolutely sick of seeing Amouranth and other stupid a$$ streamers on my recommended channel list when I'm clearly only here for SC2 and gaming (this is reflected in all my "recommendations" feedback). Quit forcing these stupid recommendations on me or I'm going to just wait for the content I want to be posted to youtube. At least give the option to close that window if you're going to populate the field with nothing but the mainstream BS because it might turn a higher profit. Incredibly annoying especially when I actually browse those channels thinking they were tailored to my…
