  1. So I do think this new bits thing has some promise, I totally support it, but I think a lot of people are going to complain and be upset with the positioning in the user interface. It makes people who cant afford bits feel bad and negative about constantly seeing a Zero next to the bit icon under the chat.

    My idea: We already have the cheer icon next to chat, so please, give us an option to remove the bits counter that shows 100% of the time next to channel points, OR keep the bit counter inside of the…

  2. I really like the idea of a built in menu to offer bit redeems rather than having a menu posted via commands etc. We can use the same API access and interface as the channel point interface, and allow disabling certain power-ups. Also, with this, it would probably be best to have the menu be two buttons so it doesn't get too bloated.

    This would absolutely increase the income from bits, as people would be able to see exactly what they can get for their bits rather than having to find that information elsewhere. This is good for both viewers,…

  3. There are myriad problems with this feature.

    1: Cannot be turned off if the streamer does not want it.
    2: Cannot restrict the use of unwanted stamps
    3: Streamers are not aware of it in the first place

    This can be worked around once by setting the bits limit to 10,000 points, but it is not perfect.
    There is no other way but to deactivate the affiliate if they do not want it completely.
    Therefore, we would like the feature turned on or off.

  4. Power-ups should have had this from day and it is remiss of Twitch not to have done this from the day it was implimented. POwer-ups need to be included in the Bits API. Without it games that include bit redemptions, counters and other viewer incentives no longer work properly, and viewers are confused why they do not.
    Needs to be fixed or removed asap.

  5. Power-Ups currently do not work consistently across most platforms

    Smart TV Apps (e.g. LG TVs) don't show Power-Ups in any way. The emote and message ones result in these not even showing up in the chat feed, let alone showing the highlight/giant effect.

    The Android app (unsure about iOS) currently does not work fully. Emotes and messages show up when other viewers use them, but without their paid effects. The Celebration feature does not work at all.

    I'm unsure about support on console apps, casting devices, etc.

    The most immediate concern is for mobile support, considering the large amount of…

  6. When bits are used for the chat power ups. allow the streamer to have alerts set up for the power ups so they know that they got bits with the purchase o fthe chat power up!

  7. I would love a way where we can gift other users bits just like we gift them subs, we can purchase and gift bits to them. Or at least a way we can send bits among the community!

  9. Some Streamers don't like the idea that gigantify emotes is a bits only thing. It's a very cool feature yes, but the streamer should have the option to make it cost bits OR channel points at will.

  10. I know it makes you money, but we already have so little control over what goes on with our channel. This is an absolute slap in the face.

  11. Add voice typing in the chat, this would make it easier to interact from certain devices, smart tv, smartphone, and why not to not use the keyboard on pc.

  12. I was watching a stream just now where a user redeemed a poweruo to have the border around the message and the bright colors of the border has me on full tilt. I suggest replacing the borders with something similar that uses duller colors such as grey or brown.

  13. Bits & Channel Points Predictions

    Viewers can use their Bits and Channel Points to make predictions simultaneously.

    Viewers who guess correctly will win a proportional share of the Channel Points pool. Additionally, if the streamer completes the challenge, they will receive Bits.

    Of course, there are always multiple prediction options. Therefore, it would be more engaging if the Bits values for each option were not equal.

    I do not support gambling. My proposal aligns with mission-based games, quests, bounty hunts, and similar activities.

    I hope someone understands! Thank you!

  14. With twitch adding in multiple buttons such as Cheer and Bits, It would be good to reduce UI clutter and have an option to hide/disable them if you don't use bits. Previously bits would auto hide if you had 0 however the latest update has changed this.

    Sidenote If possible please add an option to hide the warning icon as well for mods as it's just more clutter when not used.

  15. I would love it if bits had more use, and I think a good way to do this would be to enable bits to skip ads so that you have the option for your raiders to not be hit with an ad the second they enter a stream. While subscribing to your favorite streamers is good, I feel like this would enable some more micro-transactions and frequent twitch users would have a small reserve of bits (better than none at all, which is more common) for those instances.

  16. How about not only being paid out from all your income, but also having the decision whether to have it transferred to an account (Bank Paypal or similar) or to use it as credit or as bits (1:1 payout amount to bits) or one Have part paid out and use the other part as credit or bits

  17. I only stream for fun. Can Twitch introduce using Twitch earnings as a streamer to spend on Twitch subs and cheers without needing to cash out. That way we can continue to stream purely for fun, if running a business is not for you.

    • Custom emotes on the hype train.
      Explanation: The rewards for participating in the hype train are standard Twitch emotes. The idea is that if the streamer can add some extra emotes there, users might be more encouraged to participate.

    • Be able to use bits for rewards instead of channel points.
      Explanation: Users who don't have enough points (or even those who do) could choose to redeem a reward for points using bits instead. Or the streamer could choose to have some rewards exclusively for bits or only for subscribers.

    • Add some Bit-based games.

  19. Twitch removed the option to watch ads for bits and I want it back.

    Being able to send free earned bits had been an amazing opportunity for those who can not afford it but still want to support their favorite channels.

    Taking away that feature for Multiplayer Ads is a huge downgrade, it does not allow each individual to have a freedom of choice with the earned bits as it used to be.

    Please bring back Ads for Bits.
