  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. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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

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

  14. 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.

  16. 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!

  18. The popout player is bugging out. If you are watching a stream then use the popout feature and then close the popout, you can still hear the stream in the background. You can keep opening the same stream and you will have multiple audio's of that stream even though they are supposedly closed.

  20. 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.
