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

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. Currently in order to view the watch party you have to view it in a tab separate from the dashboard. If you wanted to run a poll of the viewers as to what to watch next you would have to leave the watch tab to go back to the dashboard and set up the poll from there. If we are not able to view the watch party in the dashboard could we add a poll creation button on the watch party page for the host?

    Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. At this point, you’ll need to create a poll in your Stream Manager.

    However, if you have Channel Moderators or Editors, they can create and manage a Poll through the /poll command in chat which will bring up the Poll module. Channel Moderators and Editors can also end and delete polls with /endpoll and /deletepoll respectively.

  8. When watching a TV Series (such as Made in Abyss), it would be nice to have a "Start next episode" button somewhere, possibly when the credits start to roll. The current process for playing the next episode is as follows:


    1. Go back to the Creator's Dashboard

    2. End/Cancel the current watch party (or wait for it to end)

    3. Start a new watch party

    4. Scroll all the way down to the episode that you want, then click it

    5. Select the season that you want to watch

    6. Hope you remember what episode that you just finished so that you can select the next…

  9. Give the ability to fast forward content.
    for instance if a stream is cut off due to an internet problem and the stream has to restart the watch party from the beginning

    Thanks for your feedback! We’re currently investigating all kinds of different content controls, including the ability to fast forward and rewind a Watch Party. This is a great suggestion as we continue to build out our roadmap for the rest of the year.

  10. grab a few Affiliates for testing Watch Parties also, not only partners. Such opportunities could show how much a channel can grow with such a great and new feature. Partners have a established community, affiliates are still building theirs, so adding a few into beta would give greater insight in effectiveness of this feature.

  11. 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.

    Thanks for the feedback. We do allow users to see the title of the content and time elapsed/remaining if they mouse over the content in your stream. But it would definitely be beneficial to know what’s playing before you even click into a Watch Party. We’ll look into this!

  12. I think it would be good to implement such a feature as private stream sessions. You could literally stream on "invite-only-mode" that can be used for subscriber stream or if you wanna stream something for only people you want.
    Would also work if you wanna show something to your team or when it comes to schoolwork. Companies could literally do their meetings on Twitch.

  13. Have the promo image of the show or movie the watch party is for on the Stream preview. This will make it quicker for viewers to glance through the Watch party streams and see which ones they may want to check out

  14. The Ad money can go to amazon in exchange for letting non prime viewers join the watch party. They would be essentially paying amazon for a a very specific viewing. I hate the idea that I have to exclude non prime viewers in order to do a watch party.

    • Take away region lock from watch parties.


    • Allow subs to watch along, even without prime!

  15. 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.…

  16. What movies do you want to watch with friends? Ones you want to talk about and laugh about. More horror movies, mockbusters, creature features, classic stuff. Why can we watch Tom Clancy but we can't watch Velocipastor? Which would you rather watch alone vs with your friends?

  17. Please add Rock of Love (all seasons) to watch parties. We're currently watching Flavor of Love s3 and need Rock of Love in our lives. This may be the MOST important thing in our lives right now. No pressure.

  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. So I did my first watch party this past Friday and it was pretty fun and I was pretty excited about it. However, having to go to my Prime video, find a title, and then check if it was broadly available is very frustrating. It would be nice if the search tool was more robust so I could filter by country/region, and then browse for a title that sounds interesting since I know the countries my viewers are from due to the analytics. Thanks!
