  1. On the Stream Manager page, the information with Session/Viewers/Views etc is included on the top bar of the page. While that is fine for indicated which page you are on, the text with the information now seems like its shoe-horned in and the text smaller than is comfortable to read. Please consider making the bar wider for this information.

  2. A lot of steamers are using the wrong categories, especially Video Game ones, either on purpose or because they're unaware of the choices they have. When configuring the Stream Info, before selecting a category, add a drop down for "Type of Content". There are three main types on the platform: Video Games, IRL (including IRL games) and Unattended* (check below for explanation). Choosing the category should only be allowed after choosing the type of content, and should be limited to only what pertains to that type (e.g. streamers who do IRL / Unattended content should not be able to pick…

  3. Co-Working (streaming while working, playing music, and using shared to-do lists) has become a pretty popular thing on Twitch and the only category currently that fits is "Just Chatting" which doesn't quite fit when the point of the stream is not to talk very much and let people work.

    Can we get a new category just for Co-Working?

  5. Often times setting the category of the stream does not work. If you type something that is moderately long you do not get search results. A workaround
    for that is to use a chat bot.

  6. Can we please make the Stream Title Bigger than the Streamers Name, Im coming from an event standpoint. For NORMAL Streamers that is their own channel i think it will benifit them to have their name bigger. However for Events, Tournaments this makes it harder for everyone to see, What teams are playing What stage in the tournament we are in ect...

  7. I feel adding a small heading next to the game would do wonders. Just have in the sub headings the language that the broadcaster has tagged next to the game. Obviously, it would be in the viewers' language and it would say the exact language. Sometimes it's obvious, but other times it's not so obvious. I think adding something like this would be good. So like have it formatted like

    TITLE
    Broadcaster • Game • Language

  8. I regularly stream from PS4, and found an issue where streaming certain games causes the category to get changed to "Games + Demos", even though a more specific category for the game exists(Example: Soul Calibur VI). From what I gathered researching this, it seems like minor differences in how the PS4 submits the game category causes Twitch to not recognize it, so it defaults to Games + Demos. The workaround is to manually correct the game category in Stream Manager, however doing this for every stream gets cumbersome, espec as I also have to do it again for VODs afterwards.…

  10. Hola, después de recibir varios correos del equipo de soporte dándome largas o desviando la conversación me gustaría proponer la idea de que se integre dentro de las opciones de la transmisión la posibilidad de seleccionar como idioma cualquiera de las lenguas cooficiales que hay en España. Sí que aparecen el castellano y el catalán, pero no otras como el gallego o el vasco, algo que me parece limitante y discriminatorio. Ahí queda la sugerencia. Un saludo.

  11. Twitch Studio currently requires you to select a category to begin streaming (will not proceed if one is not selected). Sometimes I would love to stream for friends / followers without necessarily being very discoverable via a category. This is possible through Twitch normally, so would love for this option to be available on Twitch Studio as well.

  14. 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.

  17. I was just now watching "The D.T Podcast" which is a podcast by Destiny and Trihex streamed on Destiny's channel.
    I already follow Destiny's channel, but not trihex's and I would like to give trihex a follow because he seems cool.

    I feel like it would be a good idea to add a "featuring" tag(?) with a hyperlink to the streamers that are being featured in the current broadcast.
    It would be good for the viewers who want to check out the streamer they just discovered, and it would also be good for networking between streamers.

    These hyperlinks would obviously…

  19. German:
    Es wäre Super wenn es bei Stream-Info unter Kategorien den Rust Editor gäbe und man nicht über das Game Rust arbeiten im Editor Streamt. Das Verwirrt die Zuschauer sonst.

    Danke im voraus

    English:
    It would be great if there was the Rust Editor under Stream Info under Categories and you didn't stream via the Game Rust in the editor. Otherwise it confuses the audience.

    Thanks in advance

  20. First of all, I want to thank you very much for having tooltip/mouseover text to look at the description of tags when searching for new tags.

    Especially when changing categories/games midstream, it would be very helpful for creators/editors to get a refresher of the description of each tag that is already applied so that they can make sure selected tags are still accurate and relevant.
