Add a setting to disable auto-joining a raid.
I think a user-profile option to disable automatic joining of a raid would be a useful feature. Some channels have various reasons or incentives to staying in offline chat and sometimes you can't catch the whole stream and can't opt-out of the raid.
Why is this still not a thing? Should be really easy to do. Surely there can be no argument here that giving users more control over how they use your platform is a good thing. In the meantime, there is a extension for Firefox - FrankerFaceZ. Looks like it can do a lot of other things as well, but I am using it just for that. Hope devs at twitch can fix that soon.
It's the most annoying thing ever. Like I don't care about other channels, just let me stay on the channel I want please?
Yeah, this option is definitely needed. Fell asleep watching a retro game stream and woke up to someone ranting about buying and using "whores" and going on about how covid is fake and just being used by the government and bill gates to scare us.
Or maybe a flag we can add into the url so we can be choosey about which raids to follow?
Please add this option.
Honestly, if this isn’t added, I will have to stop using Twitch soon. It’s messing with my sleep waking up to a yelling streamer 4 raids later.
yeah, because it's sooooo hard to hit the back button after a raid.
just use chatterino if you want to keep farming e-points to gamble with.
Sometimes I fall asleep watching a stream and what a horror it is to find myself on a LOUD STREAMER OR GAME while sleeping peacefully.
That would be great too because if the live stream I was watching ends my computer may also go into 'sleep' mode. But with the raids, the transmission of the stream continues and does not allow my computer to go to "sleep" which creates overconsumption of electricity and internet network (even longer than until the end of the stream I was watching before to sleep).
This option must therefore be integrated for the good of human beings:
1) so that they sleep better and peacefully
2) to limit energy consumption (at home consumption and internet network consumption)
start keeping muted the raided chanel , when the last stream was also muted
Please add this option, I'm listening streamer with low mic volume and when raids are really annoys because streamers are screaming!
Yes, PLEASE! I want to keep my work computer in only one stream, i don't want to be redirected to another URL every raid the streamer does.
I'd love this. There are a few channels I watch for their respective in-game drops, but I'm not always available to catch them live. It's really annoying to come back and find my browser on a completely different channel.
Absolutely agree. I enjoy watching late night streams but the Twitch app doesn't give me the option of disabling this dismal version of 'autoplay' and it turns out that option simply doesn't exist.
Why can't I vote on this. Is this a WONTFIX?
I really dislike the host feature. It has basically trained me to close Twitch whenever I step away from my computer at all, because the site thinks it is okay to control my browser for me.
I should not be required to leave the site in order to maintain control of my own browser.
I would also like this
i fall asleep to streams, i don't want my already capped bandwidth wasted by waking up to find i have been cycled through 4 channels and 5 hours of streams i wouldn't have watched in the first place.
Ultimately Twitch just wants more money. More time you spend on it means more money they get (ads), view numbers, etc.
Implementing this feature wouldn't benefit them. Your user experience only matters if it will net them more money.
You should support FFZ if you care about your user experience and push these types of requests onto them.
I have to agree with this. Being forced to automatically join a raid when initially it was opt-in is really annoying. Getting so tired of coming back to my PC after having to step away only to find myself in someone else's channel who I don't even know half the time.
