  1. Streamers and gamers from the southern african countries have no injest server close by, which makes streaming to the platform without issues and at the same level as other countries very difficult. We have a growing base of gamers and streamers and would like an equal opportunity!

  3. I have recently started watching streams but all of the streamers I have found have been in the US and are streaming at times I am not able to watch.
    I want to be able to search for streamers using my time zone or multiple time zones as well as what they stream, if they stream with other people and how many subscribers/followers they have.
    This way I can find small streamers that are in my time zone and play games I want to see.

  4. I'm in Guatemala right now and when I try to view the Community Guidelines page, it puts it automatically in Spanish. I click Idiomas at the top and choose English, it loads the page, but then immediately switches back to the Spanish version! The only way I can read the English page is in an incognito window.
    I'm on Windows 10, Chrome.

  5. I think there should be a translation option for streamers because if someone comes into streams and say a different language there should be an option to read it in English and when we want to reply there should be an option to type back in there language

  6. I've spoken to latvian streamers who have been told people struggle to find the channels that speak their language.

    This is an accessibility issue for those who have to spend the time scrolling through the 'other' languages in an attempt to watch streams in their languages.

    Simply adding more language categories would solve this issue. Twitch could ask their creators which languages they would like adding and I'm sure it would help many streamers and viewers alike.

  7. Hello, I live somewhere where the internet speed/mbps is low. Some of the people that I follow have streams are in 720 only or greater which causes the receiving transmission on my end to buffer and lag often. I mostly just want to listen, so having an audio only or video toggle would be nice.

    tldr: it could be implemented, excluding advertisements of course .. a toggle for video or at least an option for low res so that those of us with lower bandwidth can listen without choppy or broken interception.

  10. Hello, all.
    I'm Japanese and I have some favorite streamers in Twitch. But I have no ability to understand what they say in English completely...
    This is just due to my incompetence, but I want to manage to do it.
    I tried to dictate by putting a mic closer to the spaker with turning Google Voice Recognition on. It was almost alright, but difficult to recognize long sentenses or for a long time.

    Then I would like to request a function that subtitles are automatically generated by recognizing their voices.
    I want to grow up with my favorite streamers.
    It…

  11. I think many people is interested in watching streamers from their own country if possible, but if you try to search streamers sorting by country...well bad luck, that option doesn´t exist.
    The best part of this idea, is that it doesn´t require a lot of work, because i 100% think Twitch already has data of streamers by country, so it is an inexpensive and easy idea to implement.

  13. Add option for us to stream music to a parallel stream, so that viewers can choose if they want to listen to it or not (and also let them manage the music volume).

    Could maye also be used for voice chat, and let viewers decide if they want to listen to voice chat or not

  14. So, the main Twitch design issue is that designers forgot about non-english speaking countries.
    Roobert font is awesome, but don't have cyrillic subset.
    So we have one font for russian menu items and another for Prime item.
    Check it with a russian langauge version of main page.

  15. Most likely the screamer will usually talk in one language. let's say there is both speech recognition translated to text of the native speakers language,. make that text readout selectable to be translated into other languages so that for and readers can read what the screamer is saying in comments in their own language.

    and reverse it too so that chatters could chat in their native language and appears in the streamer's native language text

    It doesn't have to be a very poetic translation just enough to get by. And foreign translations should have a flag by them so that…

  16. Most people speak two languages more or less fluently and like to watch streams in both these languages. But currently I don't think there's an option to sort by two languages. Either you don't sort and you see first your own language first (swedish for me) and then beneith there's all streams in all languages. I want to sort in Sweidsh + English

  17. There is a pop-up when a viewer types a message in chat for the first time that the streamer is allowed to customize. I would like for Twitch to add messaging there automatically localized to the viewer's detected language that states any and all language restrictions the streamer may have.

  18. Greetings,

    I don't know if this is the right contact for this. But I wanted to suggest something that would be very beneficial for channels from different regions to grow.

    I have communicated this via twitch surveys before.

    My suggestion is:
    It would be very beneficial for channels to grow if the Twitch homepage displayed channels from the regions the users are from (e.g: if a user is from Saudi Arabia, the homepage will display Arabic channels ..etc)

    I have been streaming on twitch for 4 years now and have been a partner since 2015. However, I need to grow…
