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

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

  2. Extensions can currently be used to leak IP addresses.

    Currently there is a host of scammers who create follow bots who idle in streamers chat to bait the streamer to visit them, steal their IP address and in turn send blackmail messages that threaten to DDoS the streamer unless they pay a ransom.

    A system needs to be created to prevent this. Something like:
    - An option to disable extensions globally
    - Have viewers approve extensions before they are enabled on streams
    - Have Twitch manually approve developed extensions before they can be added to stream pages

    Telling all streamers…

  3. Hello!

    I would like to propose implementing a better landing page experience for the Extension Discovery page which currently features the same three extensions for 3-4 months at a time with very little rotation.

    I would propose either rotating the top three extensions more often (monthly).. or randomizing them with a larger pool of featured extensions that refreshes on page load.

    This will help streamers more easily discover extensions they may not have seen otherwise.

    Thank you

  4. Good day.
    I suggest adding add-ons for the chat.
    Namely, translation of the chat in real time into different languages.
    For the convenient use of foreign citizens.
    So that every Twitch member can customize the translation of the chat text they know.
    And also provide the opportunity to select the translation of the chat text separately for the streamer.

    How viewers see the chat :
    nickname1 - Hello!
    nickname2 - Hola!
    nickname3 - Привіт!

    How the streamer and viewers will see the chat by setting up the translator extension:

    nickname1 - Hello! [EU]
    nickname2 - Hello! [ES]
    nickname3 - Hello!…

  6. The current extension store is supported and maintained but not actively improved. Therefore it is the same for like 4 years now and hardly any streamer knows about it. Because of this, the work of many third-party developers goes unnoticed.

    If Twitch can improve their discovery for extension, developers can put more effort into their projects. Marketing is incredibly hard and we need help or at least provide a credible extension store.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Extension configuration does not load. flashes and then doesn't load. contacting Tiltify didn't work and of course, twitch doesn't have an easy way to contact with issues.

  10. 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.

  11. A new feature for the mod view.
    A moderator chat so you can easily give out informations to every mod on when to take actions and share informations to everyone at the same time.

  12. 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…

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. With more and more funny and useful extensions coming out it would be really helpful if the amount of slots could be bumped up by a lot, the 2 overlay, 3 panel is just not cutting it.
    And if the mobile overlay use isn't coming any time soon, make it so that we can place an extension in both the overlay and panel slot at the same time, so that we can cater to both types of viewers.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
