  1. Add a chat to support on Twitch, because due to the complexity of the ticket, I have to wait months for an answer. I want to talk to a real employee, not a bot that will automatically respond to messages, because of this, there are some difficulties in solving the problem.

    Microsoft Support is more efficient than yours, you can call, live chat and email. Once again: I don’t want the bot to answer me, do Twitch for the better.

  2. The search form (and a few other forms) aren't screen reader friendly because they list the form title within the form which disappears as you start typing, stopping you from hearing the form title after entering text.

  3. The current chat font on the iOS app is very small for the legally blind. Please add dynamic text support or the ability to increase the chat font size.

  4. Providing plain text emails is an important aspect of user accessibility. They're easier to look at and less error-prone to assistive technologies.
    It also plays a role in respecting user privacy.

  5. A theme option may be offered with the color scheme of the device's operating system. Thus, if the device switches to dark theme in the night, Twitch also switches to dark theme. Example: YouTube

  6. Blind users of the sight use a number of programs to help them however going and clicking buttons can be awkward with those programs a chat command that they could run to follow someone would be great, even better if they could do it from a different channel and follow with a @ when someone is shoutouted out.

  8. I, like many other people, enjoy listening to streams before bed and often fall asleep to them. The problem is since Twitch is a streaming app it doesn't auto shut off. This means the stream will keep on running while I sleep. Sometimes I wake up and my phone has been running for eight hours straight because I didn't exit Twitch before sleeping. I think you should add a toggleable auto shut off feature that turns a stream off after 30 minutes. It should be toggleable so people can turn it off. Please add this, it would be a great…

  10. Seriously. People wanna watch live tv. Get rid of video section. Home is ok, About is ok, Schedule is ok. Chat can be debated.

  11. I don't know what happened but i can't change my volume anymore from the offline screen of people or myself, you used to be able to do it and it was very useful for me when i was going to go live.

    Probably most of you did not notice it was gone so hopefully this makes you realize that it was removed.

  12. Please add and allow the ability to put users you follow into groups. Like a folder/group. So that when you see on the left, Followed Channels, or if you go to the channels you follow, you can easily see them grouped up in folders/groups.
    IE one example would be: Path of Exile streamers, you could label POE and put followed channels into that group.

    While you can see what game people are playing at the moment of course. Certain players main certain games. And so if you follow a bunch of people and see a bunch of people live. It…

  14. The added categories will blur out thumbnails of streamers that the user follows and currently fall under one of the user-marked categories, this way one can access their following page without the risk of witnessing potential spoiler frame on given streamer's thumbnail.

  15. I log onto twitch to enjoy some stream content of my favorite streamer, game, or community for the day. I am encountered with streams without my choice(also known as consent) that I have no interest in, disagree with politically, feel are being pushed on me for political purposes, do not want to watch, do not even want to see for one second, and think I should not have to see. All I request is a simple option in user settings that allows me to opt out of hosts, raids, or "twitch" chosen streams on the home screen. This would improve…

  17. I would like to suggest the option to tag the stream as "Reaction" like "First Let's Play" for example so theres a tag you can search for if you lookout for that kind of content - there are alot of streams that do that but get lost in the amount of streams infront of them so that would be a highly recommanded option to bring that category of streams more to life

  18. 100 bits seem to be required to activate a hype train, showing that information in the bar that shows up now to encourage others to donate would be helpful.

    Or, another option would be adding the collective smaller bit amounts till 100 is met for the hype train to activate.

    Either way. There is a flaw currently with the information to activate a hype train.

    Thank you.

  19. I have just discovered that for streams containing embedded closed captions (NOT via a Twitch extension), there is no way to display the closed captions when playing the stream on Android or when casting to a Chromecast.

    I think it's great that Twitch has added captions support in the first place, but all of it is for nothing if someone who relies on captions is watching on the app or Chromecast.

    To be extra clear, I am not talking about caption extensions - those show up in the app, but many streamers use proper embedded captions which seem to only…

  20. I would like to see Twitch become a more accessible place. One way to do this is to have live closed captions on every video, no matter language or status. Of course, providing official captions is impossible for some channels. To remedy this, I would like to see the implementation of automatic/auto-generated captions. This would resolve the issue for people who do not have a person or software to provide the captions. Then, people could choose between that and whatever official captions the channel provides.

    YouTube is starting to provide automatic captioning to channels above 1k subscribers. Facebook already has…
