  1. Allow an extension to be seen/used only by the streamer, as well as their editors and mods.

  2. 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

  3. Some extensions, do use image upload.
    To avoid flaws in the moderation system it would be great to have an image upload system on Twitch.

    The streamer or developer could upload an image, that will be reviewed by Twitch, like emotes or cheermotes, etc. Once the image is approved, it can be used in the extension on the streamer's channel.

    This will allow streamer to have more personnalisation options in extension, without adding multiple image upload system for each extensions that doesn't go through the twitch moderation system.

  4. 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. 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.

  8. I think a pronoun extension would be great a lot of streamers are using the chrome one but if it were a twitch extension you could view on all
    Browsers and hopefully on the mobile app.

  9. 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.

  10. As an editor for a few of my friends, as it stands the only way for me to edit their extentions is via their personal sign in ID and password. I find this rather distasteful since we are supposed to never share that information. As an editor, I should be allowed to access something as important as extensions that provide NEEDED additions to the stream! Please, I hope Twitch, fellow users, and fellow editors share in this idea and see the assistance it would offer the gamers, and the truly epic opportunity Twitch editors(Like myself) would be able to further…

  12. It would be nice to be able to have the ability to add as many extensions as I please because at any given time I usually would want 4 or 5

  13. Hi,

    It would be great to showcase a short clip of 30 - 60sec to showcase the extension.

    This could demonstrate a lot more than just a picture and is pretty common for similar platforms.

    It is somewhat surprising a live broadcasting platform doesn't have this feature.

    Hope you guys make it work.

    Cheers, Jeroensk - CVS-Gaming

  14. Many extensions support multiple installation types (panel, overlay, component).
    A Streamer must select where to install it then.

    Some Streamers preferr the overlay mode but some viewers don't like overlays, so then got the option to disable it on twitch.

    Now the viewer does not have access to the content in the extension anymore.

    If Twitch would allow streamers to simultaneously install such extensions as overlay but also as panel, the viewer would not be forced to allow the unwanted overlay if he/she wants to use the extension's features.

  18. I am curious why Twitch streamers are limited to 3 panel extensions. I hope there is a good reason, cause I feel like 5 sounds like a better number. There's a lot of super awesome extensions out that I can want to utilize, but the limited # prevents that. Any reason why it's limited to 3, and could it be expanded?

  19. Add a way to pull users's channel points from the API. It would be really nice to be able to have a channel point leaderboard from an Extension, or directly from you

  20. Current state: Twitch allows 1 Extension Overlay slot per channel.

    Requested Feature: At least 1 additional Extension Overlay slot per channel.

    Components require viewers to open the extension to interact with it. Good for items that the streamer are seeking out, but not viewer interaction.

    Overlays allow immediate interaction when someone joins the stream. Useful for polling, available prime subscription, Closed Captioning, Crowd Control, many bit/sub/tip extensions, and of course game overlays to increase chat interactions.

    Many streamers either have 1 Overlay at all times regardless of the game they are playing because of the functionality of the overlay, but…
