  1. Let mods have their own separate emotes to make it possible to make Chibi versions of them wielding ban hammers, etc. so only they can use them.

  2. Now that subathons and other long streams are trending on Twitch there's a need for feature to notify your followers that you're live during the stream!

    Issue currently is that you need to stop your stream and restart it so the followers get notified that your stream is live! For example for subathon this is a big issue because you'll lose viewers when doing this.

    Now my suggestion is to give streamer and their trusted mod(s) a chance to announce that the stream is live without stopping the stream! It could be available once in ~24 hours so it doesn't…

  3. At the moment it is only possible to enable/disable creating clips on the channel. If creating is disabled, the broadcaster can still create clips.

    It would be nice if you could select whether only the broadcaster or also editors or moderators can create clips.

    Of course you could also include vips or subscribers as additional levels.

  4. If you are a game streamer, one problem that you face is stream snipers. They watch the stream and then try to find your server, interact with you and / or try sabotage the gameplay. This is a large problem and should be minimized as far as possible.

    At this moment of time you can link certain accounts to Twitch. One of the accounts you can link is Steam, so that viewers can earn twitch drops.

    Since in some games, for example Rust, you can easily find out the steamID of the stream ******, I think it would be a…

  6. With Partners having a badge to show there hard work on Twitch.

    I feel that the users who have Twitch Affiliate should have "Affiliate" under the username when you click on the user in any Twitch chat.

  7. What about adding an option/button to mute the music the streamer is playing? Sometimes i don't like the music so an option to only hear the streamer voice would be great.

  9. Basically, just allow smaller streamers (particularly streamers who haven't reached affiliate) to do things like polls and votes with chat without having to be monetized.

  10. I think it would be super rad if there were an option to flag your stream as NSFW which would require people to have a Twitch account (aged 18+) to view your stream, so that you can speak a bit more freely, more relaxed, and you can potentially try to cater to a more mature audience for people that don't want to have kids watching their stream.

    Even better, a toggle to tag your whole account as NSFW so that you only interact with adults.

    *Edit: This would allow people to play games that have nudity as well, broadening the…

  11. Add option for us to stream music to a parallel stream, so that viewers can choose if they want to listen to it or not (and also let them manage the music volume).

    Could maye also be used for voice chat, and let viewers decide if they want to listen to voice chat or not

  13. It would be a great way for musicians on Twitch to be discovered if there were a TwitchMusic channel which highlighted a new music streamer from the Music & Performing Arts category every 15 minutes, in particular "Live Performance" (not the 24/7 radio stations that violate TOS which dominate the category).

    This would be a nice way for people to discover new live music streams, and it would work similar to the ChannelOne channel on the Mixer streaming platform.

  14. A payout progress page!

    You can see your payout history on Twitch, and how much you've made on Twitch in certain months/weeks, but for me and some others, its still a bit confusing on when to know when you've reached your $100 payout.

    So my idea was a progress bar, or any stat that shows you how far you are until your next payout, so you know how close you are, when you can expect a payout along with viewing your previous payouts.

    Benefits:

    • You know when you will get paid, which can be convenient for bills/other payments you have…

  15. It would be incredibly helpful to be able to view a user's username history, in order to maintain community safety. The feature used to exist via a third party and was invaluable for moderators on larger channels when processing unban requests.

    Since twitch only logs old chat messages to a certain point, for older channels it can be difficult to find out why a person was banned previously. Much of the time we have to trust the user to respond with previous usernames so we can search our own mod messages/google sheets for past bans, but obviously this isn't reliable.

  16. I would love to see a feature or extension that allows for you to sync your Spotify and Amazon Music.

    Currently the Amazon Music extension is not 100% you need to login and listen and the problem is you have to listen on another device meaning if you are listening on your PC your viewers will hear the music not only that they need to opt into the extension to hear it.

    If there was a better feature for example something under the streamer or to the left of the video quality options much like the soundtrack one we could…

  17. Much like resubbing to a channel, I would think a follower versary would be a cool to see every year with the ability to write a message in there. (example: Username has been following for 12 months. Hype. Share your message.) It dont have to be over the top kind of thing.

  18. During Black History Month, you have been celebrating Black Creators, which is great, but there are many more out there than the… 20 or so…? that have been featured so far this month (and it’s the 26th).
    You could also ask the community to nominate Black Creators next year.

  19. There should be a recent activity check on mods. So we can know if there are inactive mods and see what mods are actually doing work.

  20. Think of something along the same idea of Hype Trains. A streamer randomly gets paired up with another streamer who is live and get to battle each other. Whoevers community sends the most bits (or gifted subs) during a 3 minute time period wins the battle. This will help the streamer gain more revenue from their streams, become closer with their community, and be able to have more interaction with their community.
