  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Un metodo para que la gente sorda pueda enterarse de lo que pasa en los streams mejor, sería poner subtitulos o algun método parecido así ayudaría a la gente con esa discapacidad

  6. 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.

  7. Neurological disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, Dystonia, Neuromyotonic. These are just a few issues people suffer from that are characterized by mild to severe muscle spasms, or "twitching." The community feels that the website name is a mischaracterization of a very common issue afflicting thousands of people who use the site. The name is ableist, offensive and disheartens many potential viewers and streamers.

  8. 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.

  9. 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. OBS plugin that a live captioner could use - currently it doesn't seem there is any captioner-compatible software to use with OBS/Atem - this would mean higher accuracy captions for live broadcasts as currently accuracy isn't so great and also cuts out.

  11. Hi! I am hard of hearing (almost deaf) in both ears, and I can't hear anything! Something that would be helpful would be automated closed captions. It hears what the streamer is saying and translates it - not necessarily accurately, but still allows me to enjoyably watch streams!

  12. simply said, if twitch wants more non-English speaking viewers, a feature that allow seaching only channels with "caption on" is a must.

  13. If a viewer could select a favorite streamer which stream would start immediately within the first seconds after going live, so you don´t have to pay attention to notifications. A notification can be missed so easily, also they are too small. Not everyone is always connected to an email account. Also the follower list get´s updated too slowly.

    I always miss my favorite streamer CookSux, don´t see the notifcation and see him showing up in my follower list too late, but he´s already online since 30 or 50 minutes or even 2 hours.

    I hope that´s a good idea for…

  14. i would like to see a slider to turn off 18+ channels, completely hiding them from the page.

    i really dont want to see the hottub, bikini, and or swearing channels.
    i really wish there was an option to completely get rid of the channels with a single option. completely blocking 18+ channels

    right now im blocking the channels one by one, but its always returning.

  15. Hi.

    As a user, I've been repeatedly and increasingly unhappy with the level of transparency the Twitch team offers to their userbase.

    You drop unannounced updates
    --> Example would be the /me change

    You don't reply to userfeedback (aside from incredibly broad statements)
    --> Mails towards the Twitch Support are answered with automatic replies. Most of them send users to UserVoice
    --> But here on Uservoice, barely anything ever gets an answer and if so, it's a "we'll think about it" until it either is forgotten or we're back at the unannounced Update again.

    You force random users into beta…

  17. When my browser gets closes/opened and at some point go to my Twitch tab (have pinned) I always find a video playing. I don't know it's playing because by default Twitch has sound muted. What's happening is you are wasting my data plan. As youtube provides, you should have a way to enable/disable auto play. This also happens when I've completed watching a video - it auto starts playing another video if I'm not right there to press stop/pause. This should only happen if I have a playlist and I don't see that option either

  18. Me encuentro con un bug de la pagina desagradable al querer iniciar el programa de afiliado en twitch.
    Al darle a empezar me dirige a una pagina con el siguiente mensaje "Lo sentimos. A no ser que tengas una máquina del tiempo, ese contenido no está disponible."
    ¿Alguna posible solucion?

  19. Organize claimed drops into folders by Game/Application

    It's very cloggy and hard to see when reviewing claimed drops with too many in inventory

  20. When we hover over any of the channels on the followed channels screen, I would like the unfollow and subscribe button to appear quickly. It can be thought of as a pop-up. We shouldn't have to go to his page to unfollow or subscribe.
