  1. Currently, overlay extensions only overlay the video on PC.

    Please allow overlay extensions to overlay the video on mobile too.

  2. I seem to have a persistent issue with users who are banned from my chat still being able to use my extensions to troll/harass me, resulting in the deactivation of the extension until the user moves on. Please have extensions check for banned users and disallow them to use the extension on my channel if they are banned. This is a particularly large issue especially with the Sound Alert Extension. Imagine being spammed with a "RIP" alert every thirty seconds just because you banned a 12 year old from your streams. Not Fun.

  4. Enabling overlay extension ("Ctrl+ Stream Kit" tested in particular but probably any) currently makes it impossible to pause/unpause livestream in web player with spacebar hotkey until "Pause" icon is clicked with a mouse at lease once since page load.

  5. Add the "Extensions" feature to Twitch Studio! Rather irritating that it's not available on the official studio software.

  6. Probably 95% of Bits are provided through Twitch Chat by typing e.g. Cheer100.

    This way of using Bits is explained and well-known for Twitch viewers. Not allowing Twitch Developers to use the same functionality is a direct limitation and provides an inconsistent user experience.

    For example, let's say we have a game called "Racer". Join the race with bits and race against other viewers. Viewers type racer100 in Twitch chat and join the race.

    Every developer gets a certain code (racer) similar to the extension name, and the amount determines the action. The action list is communicated with !racer, more…

  7. When an Extension goes through constant improvement cycles the Extension versions start to pile up on the developer dashboard. There doesn't appear to be a particular order in which the versions are displayed so it becomes a tedious task to find the latest one just by looking through the small semver text on the thumbnail.

  8. Add it so I can make a comment to the twitch streamer without having to DM them on discord or whisper, please.

    /comment Care for [user] being toxic in chat with [ ] .

    Just would make things easier IMO and helps a lot if the streamer gets issues with running discord or any other issues.

  9. Today extensions (overlay extensions) are only available on certain web browsers (for PC/MAC).
    Make it available/work on all browsers.

    Today extensions (overlays) don´t work on mobile and tablets (apps).
    Make it available/work on mobile and tablet apps.

    Please also find a way to make extensions synced, be able to be used in replays/VOD´s/Clips.

  10. A system similar to what Steam has: Trading Cards that can be unlocked by engaging with the streamer. (Requires the streamer to have such feature enabled; The streamer can design and upload their cards and set conditions such as drop rate, how to get them, say by following, subscribing, donating etc.)

    Each user would have their own trading card menu in their personal dashboard, to check which have been unlocked, from which streamers, etc.
    Viewers can also trade cards with others if they have doubles, etc.
    Collecting all cards from a streamer could also unlock a badge or whatever the…

  11. None of my panel extensions show up anymore. They were working before, but the cards appear empty now. In extension manager they do show up, but the configuration pop-up is empty.

    Edit: They do show up when I'm not logged in. But how do I configure them if I can't see them when I'm logged in!?!

  12. The Extension Action: "followChannel" currently only accepts the channel name.

    window.Twitch.ext.actions.followChannel: void function(channelName: String)

    Most of the other extension APIs all use IDs and these are readily available in the extension from the JWT. With the way this API is designed, in order to use it you now have to make an extra network request against the Helix endpoint to get the channelName from the channelId.

    My request is to make it so this action supports taking the channelId or that the channelName is exposed in the JWT token.

  13. Allow mobile viewers to seean overlay whiles using the extension Overlay Expert. Seriously this kinda sucks for me because I like checking my own stream or watching a friend’s stream and I can’t see the overlay they have set

  14. There is a very large community that makes content for Twitch directly from your PS4 or Xbox console, and we do not have all the advantages that streamers have from PC, developing "exclusive" extensions for streams from console can help this community too much.

  15. The new purple screen of death that's been happening to a lot of people obviously doesn't work as intended and should be removed until it does. I miss a lot of streams because it pops up randomly. I never use adblock on twitch. I use BTTV and FFZ. That shouldn't be flagged as 3rd party tools that affect the stream performance negatively.

  16. Make closed captioning (CC) a universal feature. Closed captions are a necessary feature in the current year. It not only helps deaf people but also helps people understanding foreign languages or reading something they missed while watching.

  17. It would be great to have a panel feature that would autoplay highlight/clip videos when a viewer clicks on our page or on the about page.

  18. I really wish those popular streamers add the closed captions to their stream for the viewers who is Deaf including myself. It's 2021 already though. Is there a way you could force them to add it? I would be much appreciate it!

  19. Make it possible to add editor credentials to another Twitch user to edit one's overlays and select the one in-use. Make it possible to add editor credentials to another Twitch user/account to edit one's overlays and select the one in-use. It would avoid security issues from sharing passwords in order to create/edit/select overlays.

  20. I would really love to show people who watch me on mobile to see the overlays I made, I would stream so much more often, I worked so ******* that overlay just for people who watch me on their phone (which is nearly all of my viewers) to not see it. I don’t have the money for a pc so I can’t put an overlay on that way, so I’d love it if this feature was added to Overlay Expert on mobile. Pleassseeeee
