  1. I use subtitles while broadcasting, this way I can communicate with deaf friends, I think a plug-in should be added for broadcasters who use these programs in my filter section and add a plug-in in twitch.

  2. 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…

    Thanks for reaching out with your suggestion. We’re currently investigating all kinds of different content controls, and where we can add them to our product roadmap.

  3. I think it would be pretty awesome if twitch had some veteran badges, which can be also shown in Chat.
    Like 5 years registered twitch account, 10 years and so on.

  4. It would be great if when creating an event you can input the timezone as well from a drop-down menu.
    Currently, it is locked to the local time zone of the person creating the event.

    This would be helpful for streamers who use a different timezone for scheduling and for editors who do not live in the same timezone as the streamer.

    Thank you.

  5. 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.

  6. Have a mid tier, the requirements to join partner are very high but lock sooo many features and sub badges with that i suggest a middle tier witch could have a minimum followers of 100, viewer average of 12-20 or smthn along those lines and give those people the ability to squad stream & unlock more emotes without being a partner.

  7. You should add different tiers of the gift badge, like the bit badge. It currently shows the ammount of gifted subs already in the message in chat, but this should also be reflected in the gift badge.
    Do a score system, lets call it gift score, like following: $4,99 sub gives 1 point, $9,99 gives 2 points and $24,99 gives even 5 points, like you did it for the streamer with the sub score.
    Depending on the gift score give different badges. Maybe in steps like 3,5,10,25,50,100 etc...

    Give the possibility to the streamer to upload their own gift badges,…

  8. Hello, In light of JK Rowlings constant reminders that she hates trans people, trans women specifically, I think this is a good opportunity to change the image partners receive when accepted to something that isn't a Harry Potter reference. It would be wonderful if it is either a reference to a trans woman's work or made by a trans person. Maybe a matrix reference?

  9. 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!

  10. hi gentlemen, could you add the squad streaming with video transcoding with full and priority access even for affiliates? thanks :)

  11. Currently, cheermotes are available even for blocked users who unlocked the emote before they got blocked.

    This, however, also allows for harrassment outside of the channel of the stream who blocked them. They can go to channels of streamers that the streamer is acquainted or friends with, and continue to harass simply by intentionally using their cheermotes.

    I don't think this is something a streamer should have to deal with, and therefore I think that while a user is blocked by a streamer, they should also not be able to use the cheermotes, just like they're not able to subscribe…

  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. Raids at any point during a stream can significantly alter the statistics for that stream over time, and changes the meaning of those statistics. As such they ought to be represented on the graph on the Stream Summary page.

    For example, the bar representing the 5 min chunk where a raid occurred should be a different color than the rest, and hovering over it, which now brings up "Average Viewers: #" should also include "Raid (username): #"

  14. I've seen lots of ideas to allow the streamer to disable the founder badge in favour of the regular/custom sub badges, but i think it would be REALLY REALLY useful to add a feature that lets the VIEWER switch between the founder and normal/custom sub badge, in the same why people with more than 3 available badges can switch them on and off. PLEASE consider?

  15. Currently, unnamed clips default to the stream title making lots of clips the same exact title. These clips remain unwatched most of the time, and are usually painstakingly removed by hand by the streamer.

    Making it required to give the clip a name before it is saved would cut back on junk clips.

  16. Give us a way to set a list of streams we do or do not wish to receive raids from.

    Currently the only options for limiting raids are

    Allow all raids,
    Only allow raids from friends, teammates, and followed channels,
    & Block all raids.

    Occasionally raids from particular communities my prove disruptive for the receiving community, and we may not wish to take the step of banning the streamer outright. Being able to specify specific streams we do or do not wish to receive raids from would allow us a greater deal of control without resorting to the heavier step…

  17. As you've cited in your "How to Use Squad Stream" post: "We are rolling Squad Stream out to Partners first because of the need for video quality options (also known as transcodes) in order to ensure the best experience for viewers. Currently, all Twitch Partners receive video quality options on their streams by default, while Affiliates receive them as they're available, with priority access. Our plan is to make Squad Stream available to Affiliates and all other streamers as we continue expanding our transcodes capacity."

    Many affiliates get transcodes already and should be able to Squad Stream, so I want…

  18. Sometimes I'd like to bulk gift subs to a stream, but I'd prefer such subs go to followers among the viewers and/or current viewers to reward regulars and people currently engaged in the stream.

  19. Polls is a great system however there could be some improvements

    1) longer running polls - 5, 10, 60 or indefinite (broadcaster stops poll)
    2) browser source customisation / improvement - it's currently a little bit hacked together with no real thought. like if added to OBS how am i meant to change whats being displayed?
    3) there should be an API available for this (speaking from a developer standpoint)

  20. if a channel host raids another channel it will switch your url which will delete chat history as well some channels have "This room is in 10 minutes followers-only mode." so some raiders can't raid

    1 having the option of turning off raids for a certain channel your in so you don't get auto switched or turning it off completely for all raids because maybe you like switching to a different channel then join a raid.
