    When you start to follow more channels it becomes a messy experience. You forget the channel name so you have to look through the whole channels following list which is not fun to do that's for sure or when you look through who is on live it's also not fun to keep scrolling through everything to find your favourites or what you feel like watching at the time.

    Why can't there be like an add stars l/ favourites feature to channels we enjoy the most at present so that those channels are always at the top of our lists and at the top of the Following - Live section as well. This at minimum would be amazinggggg! Obviously, we should be able to add and remove stars as our interest changes. If you want to be fancy this is something you could report back to streamers - how many people have starred their channel as favourites etc.

    Then secondly if it could automatically break down into categories at least in the Following - Channels section or that we can create our own folders. So we can tag and put some channels in Music, some IRL, some in Gaming and so forth. That way if we want to watch "X"or a particular category we can easily sort through who is live at the time or find the channel we are after when offline for vods.

    It kind of makes you unfollow channels just to keep your Following - Live section clean of what no longer interests you right now and that's drastic because maybe you would watch again later if you could sort it better.

    Much like Netflix or even Youtube to some degree, it would be beneficial to have the following feature when browsing for new channels:
    the ability to hover over stream thumbnails and preview the stream with sound before entering a stream.

    This would simplify the browsing process for viewers, reduce browsing time and create a more enjoyable and user friendly browsing experience.

    As the current filtering system is limited and categories like Just Chatting and Music are so vast in content, this would meet some of the needs in terms of the lack of filtering tools currently available to users/viewers.

    From the streamers point of view it would increase the likelihood of being discovered by new viewers, it would attract better community fits/viewers into their channel and reduce their bounce rate.

    A great example to support this feature request would be in the 'Music' category. The ability to hear the DJ in a preview form would greatly reduce the time spent searching. This can sometimes become frustrating and a tiring process and can result in not watching anything on Twitch in the end. This is also evident and applicable to the 'Just Chatting' category.
