  1. 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.

    Thanks for the suggestion. At this time, Ads are not supported in Watch Parties. We will let you know if this is added to our roadmap

  2. 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.

  3. Allowing streamers who participate in squad streams to merge their chats would provide a smoother chat and viewing experience for both streamers and viewers. Currently, viewers watching a squad stream only have the option to switch between chats or pop out chats for both streamers, which makes stream moments and events tougher to follow, especially for setups like mobile where viewers may only be able to view one chat at a time. Having a combined chat where messages posted can be seen by viewers of both streamers in the same conversation would make squad streaming more convenient and memorable.

  5. There is a lot of commotion about the DMCA thing so why not make a function so that viewers can listen to the same music as the streamers on Spotify and Youtube Music, maybe Soundcloud also. There is already a watch party function for Prime Video so why not do something similar for music so streamers and viewers can enjoy music together without worrying about copyright infringement.

  6. With the increase of soft **** and people advertising their OnlyFans, Pornhub or whatever else, I'd like to block Just Chatting, Art, Pools and all the other categories that are used to stream soft **** and are better placed on other platforms than Twitch.

    Another idea would be to do the blocking based on tags.

  7. It'd be really useful if Teams could have a Schedule page that shows a merge of all the members' Schedules together. It might be difficult for larger teams, but I think it would really help viewers to discover new streamers to regularly watch through a Team's Schedule page.

  8. I dont know why Twitch is always helping big streamers with the tournaments like twitch rivals. I have never heard that Twitch would do something for small streamers community, why not Twitch Rivals for small streamers like myself. It doesnt matter about money, as it will help get some audiencie from the Twitch Rivals. TWITCH help small streamers!!!

  9. 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

    Thanks for the suggestion! I’ve passed this along to the product team to look into as we continue shaping the product roadmap.

  10. Hi! I would like to suggest adding commands so that we can know how long the long cooldown for the hype train is. Also would be nice to see a command on how many events are left to trigger.

  11. Browsing Twitch is incredibly difficult due to the lack of personality shown in titles and randomly generated thumbnails. Titles only allow so many characters in the preview and auto-generated thumbnails don't tell any sort of story about a streamer.

    I believe with custom thumbnails, it'd give streamers the opportunity to showcase their content at a glance.

    When we think of custom thumbnails, I believe we all think clickbaity YouTube videos, and that's a real concern we may have for custom thumbnails. But I believe Twitch users browse differently than YouTube.

    On Twitch, we are looking for a very specific type…

  12. So I noticed since a couple of weeks ago, Twitch removed the ability to track the drops via the profile drop down. I loved that though. I want it back cuz going all the way to the inventory page takes longer and gets me away from the stream versus just clicking on my profile and seeing the progress from there.

  13. So many people don’t raid because they feel the number isn’t big enough. With bots you can edit the messages and remove the number of people raiding. My suggestion is to give people an option to remove the number of people that was raided in. It would help people feel more confident in raiding someone. Still say who raiders just remove the number of people.

  14. Currently, stream teams work to categorize like-minded creators and friends under a certain game, genre, or theme. Nothing really links these creators together beyond sporting the same team name in their bios. Here are a couple suggestions to help promote creators of all sizes in the same stream team:

    • adding a single emote that is shared between all creators on the same team
    • increased channel point incentive for raiding other creators on the same team
    • instead of prioritizing highest viewership, adding a "featured streamer" option at the top of the team page to encourage growth for smaller streamers
    • adding a…

  15. Why do you punish large streamers with over 10k viewers that they can't raid? If it's a concern of overloading the viewer hosted, they can opt out if they don't want raids. If it's to avoid bots, maybe add a bot filter to weed out the bots so they get removed from the raid. If it's because the system can't handle that large of a raid, then perhaps upgrade the site's ability to handle it. In any case there are valid solutions that don't involve forcing a large streamer to tell their viewers who want to support the next stream…

  16. Audio Channels:

    Add and allow different audio channels on a stream to be muted or change their volume so people can change to their liking.
    This would allow streams with background music to be adjusted on the fly, or if you just want to hear the streamer and nothing else you could mute music + gameplay to only hear the talk, or maybe you want to silence the alerts because you find them annoying.

    With this, more content creators would be able to stream the way they like, while also allowing customization for the watching party to fit their liking.

  17. Cozy games are often indie projects and rarely get popular to the point that people are manually searching for them on twitch. I suggest we get a Cozy Gaming category so everyone can browse for cozy streams. Cozy gaming is a niche sector women and lgbtq+ people had to carve out for themselves in the industry and I hope with time it will bring more people in ❤🥺 As of right now, it's hard to find cozy streamers on twitch. I find most of them on tiktok because the algorithm makes it easier for me. I know we can have…

  18. 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.

  19. I noticed that Twitch recently added an overlay option for OBS that shows up and is for Sub Goals and Follow Goals.

    What I would like to see is a Hype Train Overlay that as soon as a Hype Train activates a Train of your choosing of color and customization in the future would go across and fill and make animations encouraging people in chat to cheer. Perhaps in the Train you could see perks pop into that would show incentives for the train growing (new emotes, new badges, etc etc)

  20. 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…
