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!

The new browsing UI is impossible to navigate, made thing unnecessarily small, and generally MORE invasive. I have NO idea how to even navigate the new browse section since I am assaulted by an AUTOPLAY video of a live stream. I understand this is in response to the "can't see what's going on if a 5 minute pre-roll immediately runs when you enter a screen", but this new one feels more like you're trying advertise even more, this time the hottest streamer on at that moment. This is a tone deaf result from the dev team since I almost never want to watch a streamer with thousands of viewers; the community is already established and it becomes impossible to participate without paying (chat scrolls so fast that the streamer will filter out non paying viewers too keep up). This is simply not a good way to encourage viewership. PLease add a way to disable the gigantic waste of space that is the auto play of the hottest streamer, and restore the old way of browsing.
The response form the dev tells you that you don't actually matter. Since every other service did it first, now twitch can do it. It is an interesting phenomenon that ad volume is so much higher than broadcast volume. Almost as if the advertisers think they are important...but honestly, stop letting advertisers cause hearing loss and frustration and NORMALIZE the ad volume. its easy, and all you really need to do is set a standard for advertisers. But you refuse.
