Just wanted to update this thread that we are doing an experiment right now with Stream Display Ads!
These are less disruptive ads that allow viewers to see and hear Creators while being displayed. Creators will receive ad revenue for each SDA shown.
You can find out more information here: https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1422255927483318277
Setting this to a partial release status as the majority of ads on web and TV apps should now have normalized sound. We are still continuing the work on this and will update the status again when it is fully complete!

This is just about the most awful part of Twitch. If I click on an offline streamer to check their posted schedule, I get an ad on their front page that's roughly as loud as a crate full of M80s detonating next to a Saturn V being launched from the site of an exploding volcano. It's physically painful to go from the soft whirr of several computer fans to a 600db ad for Perrier water with no warning.
