  1. Can we get support for more browsers than Chrome? I use Safari on Mac, and every time I start a watch party I have to launch Chrome and use it just for the watch party...

  2. I would love it so much if there was an option to request a new movie to be added to the available watch party list. or by popular votes but I think requesting is better!

    Thank you!

  3. Allow streamer to pause the video for everyone. Especially useful for Movies so you have have a break to go to the bathroom/stretch.

    Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. We’re currently investigating all kinds of different content controls, including the ability to pause a Watch Party

  4. I can't watch movies which are available on prime video to me. I can see Tropic Thunder on prime video, and confirmed that I can watch it there, but cannot join a watch party watching that movie.

    It says the streamer is "watching a title not available in your region", but it is available.

    I tried to submit this as a support request, but nobody actually reads what's written and I just got an automated response about hosting watch parties the first time then giving feedback via uservoice this time.

    Fix your support form, and watch parties.

  5. I know some of this is at the mercy of Amazon Prime, but there needs to be some consistency in the catalogue available for Watch Parties. I can't go promoting a stream and then come the day of and the title is no longer available. At the very least, some kind of "expiration date" would be helpful. Now I have to completely overhaul my plans for our next stream.

  6. Better controls for watch parties.. There are times people want to pause, or rewind and talk about parts of the movie. Currently it just continually plays and chat/host aren't on the same page. Maybe host can have features to pause, rewind, and fast forward? If the host gets disconnected the whole movie stops and you have to start it over from the start.

  7. ウォッチパーティを視聴しようとしたところ、突然Amazon Primeアカウントにも関わらずにPrimeでは無いと言われるエラーが発生。 試行錯誤した結果、Amazonアカウント連携ボタンがあるウインドウの右上アカウントにはAmazon Primeでのパスワード変更設定が反映されていないことが判明。ログインしなおすことで解決しました。

    一見、許可ウインドウのアカウント名には全く違いがなくとても気づきにくいものでした。Amazon Primeでパスワード変更などが発生した場合、再ログインを促すことで私のように迷うユーザーが少なくなるのではないかと思いこちらのフィードバックを共有しました。

    よろしくおねがいします。

  8. If you open Video Stats or Ad Stats and the stream switches into watch party mode, you will not be able to close the overlay as it is too wide for the video player and the settings cog is not available.

  9. So in watch parties whenever you are watching an episode towards the end you have to end the watch party and pretty much start a new one to move on to the next episode. Would be nice if it had some type of auto-play next episode or allow the streamer to select the next episode in a drop box or menu without exiting out of watch party.

    Thanks for the suggestion! This is another feature we’re investigating in order to make it easier for you to seamlessly host your Watch Parties. Our team is currently discussing auto-play, along with several other content controls.

  10. I have encountered issues where loyal viewers are unable to participate in a Watch Party because they are unable to view on a browser and only have access to my stream via the Twitch Mobile App. Watch Party compatibility on the Mobile App would be greatly beneficial to the viewers, and also streamers if they would be able to access and control Watch Parties via the Mobile Dashboard!

    Thanks for your suggestion! Mobile support is on our roadmap for Watch Parties, and we hope to have something to share about this later in the year.

  11. Not an idea but I noticed I can't access Watch Party with an Amazon teen account. There is only a popup message that says "Your login can only be used on the Amazon Shopping app, or by logging in to Amazon.com online" Not sure if this is amazons problem or twitches but I hope this can be fixed!

  12. Anime fans and streamers have long been waiting for the day when a streaming platform allowed this to happen, and seeing how the current partnership with Amazon with Watch Parties is doing, it might not be so far fetched after all. It would be extremely cool, if you one day partnered with Crunchyroll or Funimation for Watch Parties! It would be the coolest thing ever, especially with everyone staying home due to the Covid-19 epidemic! Imagine the viewing experience! Anime nights would finally be possible!

    Thanks for reaching out! We’ve recently made the entire Prime Video catalog available in Watch Parties, which includes thousands of movies and television shows (including lots of anime).

    We are also looking into partnering with other content providers to add even more content to Watch Parties.

  13. I hope their will come support for Watch Partys on Android TV App for Devices like Fire TV and the Nvidia Shield TV. IT would be also nice if u can add the feature to Consoles like PS4 and Xbox One

  14. One of the complaints that I received during one of my recent watch party streams is that a viewers messages were never appearing in chat. This was because they did not have a valid prime subscription. My recommendation would be to treat the watch party like a subscriber only stream and/or like a VOD for the duration of the watch party and lift those restrictions when the watch party isn't happening. It would also be nice if there was something to tell them to connect their prime account or direct them on how to get prime so that they can…

    We appreciate the feedback! Our team is currently working on various designs to make it easier to onboard new Prime subscribers. Keep an eye out over the next few weeks for those new user flows!

  15. It would be great to partner with other streaming services, allowing streamers to choose a film that is more globally available to their audience on a different service if it is region restricted on prime. Also, allowing a greater selection of film and TV for Watch Parties.

    Users connect their Streaming service (Netflix, Disney+ etc.) account to Twitch along with their Amazon Prime account and both subscriptions must be active to join in a watch Party of content form these third-party streaming platforms

  16. While streaming last night, my stream lost connection and had to restart it about 10 mins later. I wasn't able to resume the movie where I had left off so having a scroll bar/jog bar or even chapters would greatly help in the event of lost connections as it stinks having to restart a movie/show from the very beginning due to something that can't be controlled.

    Thanks for reaching out, and apologies for the frustration. There are lots of different content controls that we’re investigating for our future roadmap, and we will add this one to the list!

    • Take away region lock from watch parties.

    • Allow subs to watch along, even without prime!

    Thanks for the feedback, we’re working on making Watch Parties available to our global community in the coming months. Stay tuned for more!

  17. It is a great idea but a failed launch. It kicks people out of the watch party, and leaves a silent window with just you in their with the watch party. Unless you have a good scene, it can be embarrassing and low grade quality to not allow others to be in the party.

    I stopped the film because I lost all of my viewers after I switched over to Watch Parties from a "just chatting" while I was gathering a crowd to watch the show. However, this app forces people to sign up for Prime, or start a trial.…

    Thanks for your feedback. We will keep it in mind as we plan our upcoming releases.

  18. It would be nice if you could add the ability to watch a VOD and have the Watch Party play along. This way people could watch at a later time.

  19. One idea from one of my community members was that they would like to know what is being watched and where in the video we are. That way, they don't jump into random streams at a random position and get spoiled by something in a movie that they haven't seen yet.
