    This is now the most active TV Apps post on Twitch UserVoice, and the 3rd most contributed of all time. Over the last few months, it has received more contributions than almost any other category. I am losing hope that Twitch will have a response to this at all, let alone a desire to fix their own app hosted by their own FireOS. It is shameful that Google's YouTube app on FireOS is more effective and functional than Amazon's Twitch app on Amazon FireOS - INCLUDING YouTube Streams. It is almost as though Twitch is deliberately trying to sabotage its product and drive viewers and creators to YouTube instead. The previous version of the Twitch FireOS app offered such basic functions as: a menu listing followed and subscribed channels; effective and scalable rewind and fast forward; ability to type on the TV to live chat; ability to read or hide chat from VODs. Every single one of those features, present in the previous update, has been REMOVED from v10 with no explanation. This reinforces the impression that the developers and decisionmakers are actually working on behalf of Google to kneecap Amazon's product and push customers to YouTube instead.

    Please at least return the "followed channels" tab, and allow us to view chat on streams and VODs. What is the point of a live streaming service that doesn't let you follow the chat? And what's the point of logging in if you're going to make us search for our followed channels and recent views?
