Twitch: Live Game Streaming Comments & Reviews 2022

- Great app but could be better

I use the app a Lot, I am Also a Streamer the platform, and I can say that it is useful when I want to watch Streams on the Go! I love the Dark mode works fine (for me) and that as a mod I can access [almost] everything I should be able to access as mod! However, While in areas where the WiFi is not so great or where I am forced to use low bars of mobile data (I.e 3 or 2 bars but still have 5G LTE) I can’t seem to Load some Streams video, it forces me to watch in 930P or something like that, even going as far as Making me watch 1080P on 2 Bars with 5G, and it can’t run it so the video is frozen! if you could fix the problem that allows me to Watch anyone’s stream at any resolution, that would be Awesome! I’m not sure if that is just how it is on the Platform itself or If it’s just the app, but either way this needs fixed, as well as Making auto mod smarter, I have never seen someone use the Phrase “silly goose” in a negative way! and it wasn’t the word silly that was the problem, it was the word Goose! I know, because I could say “silly salamander” in the same chat with no issues! TLDR fix Limited Resolution for Streams, and Make auto mod smarter so they don’t think goose is a bad word!

- App structure

I think twitch is cool and different than other platforms. I have a couple channels that I follow and browse some others that peak my interest occasionally. There are some issues that I have with it tho. When you open the app, the first thing you see are other channels that are being promoted or match who you are currently following. The channels you follow are at the bottom and you have to scroll all the way down just to get to them. Put the ones I’m following at the top for quick access, please. Also, I understand that the app is for ages 17+ but when you open the app and the channels that are being promoted show up, I’d rather not have a bunch of pages of girls with every part of their anatomy hanging out as the first thing you see. A good 2/3 of the channels are like this. I don’t even follow channels like them; just some gaming channels and a couple where the women actually wear all their clothes and talk about everyday life. Yet they are spread all over my front page in string bikinis in hot tubs. I’d rather not open the app and look like some creep who views those kinds of adult channels when I don’t. It’s like you have to open the app with your phone or tablet covered in case there’s someone else looking by mistake. Maybe I’ll look through the app and see if I can fix things myself or hopefully the app is updated in the future.

- Some problems

A bug still exists that has for a long time where when in dark mode, certain movements or actions can cause the app to switch to light mode, which takes a long time and 4 menu pages to flip through to turn it back on which is inconvenient and slightly annoying. Another issue exists that when you are watching a stream in full screen mode and you double tap to open chat, and you click on a chatter’s name, a menu will pop up that allows you to gift them a sub, or look at their info etc. The problem is that when this menu pops up when in fullscreen (phone sideways), there’s no way to close the menu; you can’t click anywhere to get rid of the menu as it takes up the entire screen, and the only way to close it is to flip your device and go back to non-fullscreen, tap anywhere outside of the menu, and it’ll close. Again, this is an issue that has a solution but requires a lot of time spent to undo which can be annoying for users. A simple fix would be to add a close button for this menu, both in fullscreen and non-fullscreen. Similar to the last issue, when you tap on emotes in chat, the only way to close the menu is to click outside the menu which can be difficult/inconvenient. The same solution exists where all that is needed for this problem is to add exit buttons to menus.

- Design Problem fixed!

UPDATE: the below problem was fixed! Thank you for making hype train stop taking up all the screen on mobile! Keeping the original review below to show that there was a problem but it was resolved. Obviously still not a perfect app, with problems such as implementation of DMCA rules, but at least the UI designers are trying, thanks :) Please fix this design problem. When I am watching a stream on mobile (iPhone XR) in horizontal mode with chat, if a Hype Train appears, it extends the chat to over half of the screen space. This makes watching the stream harder, as it becomes very small in comparison to the chat. Please don't force the Hype Train to make chat bigger, or give an option to remove seeing it entirely please! When I am watching my favorite streamers sometimes the Hype Train lasts several minutes and I have to decide whether to not see chat or not see the stream well. Other than that, great app/service.

- Bugs and excessive ads

There is a recent bug that causes audio from a stream to keep playing even after it is closed, which results in multiple instances of audio playing at once, forcing a restart of the app. Also, why did they remove the button to put the stream picture-in-picture mode so you can watch it outside of the app? For a little while, it would automatically put you in picture-in-picture mode when you would minimize the stream. But now, the picture-in-picture stream doesn't stay open anymore when you close the app. For some reason, you can get the stream playing when you close the app, but only if you swipe up very, very precisely with some arbitrary momentum (I'm on an iphone with no home button) And the ads... man... they are getting ridiculous. Instant 30 second ad after switching streams makes switching to another stream to see another perspective of something happening impossible. And the blocks of 5-7 ads that are all 15-30 seconds long are appearing much more frequently on streams as well. At least get some good ads if you plan on shoving them in everyone's faces. Don't you guys already make enough money from subscribers and turbo?

- Optimization

Edit: Even viewing the subscribed channel has been dreadful. With audio bug, video bug, random error msgs that force quit stream, after that, loading signs that takes forever. What a performance by the biggest streaming service. I go on twitch mainly to watch live streaming service and connecting with the gaming community. The current layout makes it impossible to enjoy what twitch offers. On full screen, chat taking half of the screen is okay, but the other buttons such as follow, subscribe buttons and streamer descriptions taking the other screen is just too much, especially when i have already subscribed or followed the streamer. When i open the chat the actual gameplay takes less than 20% of the full screen. As twitch updates its mobile applications it makes me not want to use the app. It becomes more and more inconvenient to users. Also please let users decide what they want to do when the ad is playing. I’m watching the stream at 460p trying to save data and this 5min ad comes out in 1060p. No way to change it. Maybe ill try to subscribe when the ad is playing or follow the streamer but it is not available. These buttons and descriptions that are annoying when people are actually watching the stream will be useful when people are watching the ad.

- The app has been made unusable after a recent update

While the app has always had problems with stability no matter when you look at it, as of recently it’s been extremely unstable. The slightest wrong move and you’ll freeze the video you’re watching. But not only that, if you close your app and then try to come back to the video and resume progress, your app immediately freezes every time! Another problem exists where if you switch from landscape to portrait, and back again, you’ll cause the dimensions of the video to be out of whack (basically shrinks the picture and puts it in the top left corner and leaves the rest of the space where your video should be blank) and when you try to get the original dimensions of your video back by switching between the two modes, lo and behold, the app freezes! It works as it’s supposed to for pretty much everything else, although i can think of a few minor nitpicks. Like when fast forwarding and rewinding through past broadcasts clears the chat each time instead of the chat simply being synced with the video. As I’m trying to test the app to find these minor issues, my app is now freezing no matter what video or stream i try to watch. It’s truly never been this unstable, but currently, the app is unusable garbage.

- New update

I have been a bit frustrated with the new update for the twitch mobile app. I have an iPhone 10, so the corners of my screen are rounded off and when I go to full screen the top and bottom of the video get cut off, along with things being blocked by where the camera is placed. This used to not be a problem because they left a blank space on each side of the screen so that it all fit in frame, but now especially while watching games like Minecraft where the bottom of the video is very important(the players inventory and the chat box) is impossible to see. This can be frustrating to watch and take away from my overall experience as a viewer. Another bug I have encountered is that often when I start to type in chat it will make the stream lag, causing the video and audio to get out of sync. Reloading/refreshing the page always fixes it, but leaves me waiting through an ad. This makes me less inclined to interact in chat, which is one of the best features of twitch. Besides these two bugs I absolutely love this app and the community that Twitch has created!

- A major suggestion

I did not know this app defaults to auto play. Not to say there’s anything wrong with auto playing streams themselves but I was not aware of it and as a result I assumed a stream would end if I let the phone be. Halfway through a late night stream, I fell asleep without worries. However, I woke up and found my phone went from 100% to 13%. The streams stopped it from naturally falling into sleep mode after I unplugged it and set it to low power mode. This night of nonstop video playing no doubt harmed my phone battery’s maximum capacity, meaning it will be quicker to drop to 0% in the future and I did not intend for that. My suggestion is that you please make a pop up for mobile that stops the stream, live or otherwise, and asks the viewer “Are you still there?” after one or two auto plays have already occurred without outside input. If there’s no further response, the phone can fall into sleep mode. If there is someone still watching, they’ll tap ‘Yes’ and keep watching. Anyway, I’ve turned off auto play in settings, so this problem won’t happen for me again. But I still I wouldn’t want any people starting out with this app to make the same mistake I did.

- Very solid but still loads of room for improvement

I have been viewing twitch more and more and honestly the best twitch experience on mobile is this app. But there are a few things that if implemented, would greatly enhance the app. There have been a few times where I wanted to link my twitch and prime accounts but there is no option to do so on this mobile app. It would be great to be able to support my favorite creators with out worrying about missing a chunk of their stream. Overall there are a variety of features lacking on the app that really make me feel like I’m missing out while being a primarily mobile user. The only benefit to getting twitch prime on mobile is the crown symbol next to my name in chat. Besides lack of subscription options there is virtually no customization available except my profile picture. I know it’s not easy giving the pc experience on an app but the iOS app should be equal in features to computer. If they do so I believe many of the user base would prefer viewing from mobile.

- Unstable as of late

I used to never have problems with twitch, it was one of the apps I used to always get on and just watch a stream for fun. After a while I left because had life things to handle. But recently I decided it was a good time to get back on twitch. Was I wrong, yes and no. While the audio is fine without video, I’ve had troubles watching a stream and have audio at the same time. While the video plays just fine, it’s the audio that don’t work well on the stream. While I’ve been thinking maybe it could be my end, but when it’s been constant, I just don’t see the point in watching anything. Another thing, you removed the option to switch from 720 to something like 480, how can you test something to make sure it’s not your end if you actually take away a feature that was fine to begin with. I get the times are changing and technology is getting more and more advanced, trust me, I was born in the age of technology’s very beginnings of taking over. Just fix the stability of the app please, is that so much to ask. And please just add back a 480p button just for the users who can’t watch in 720.

- It was great until a recent update kinda ruined it for me

One of the things that I like about Twitch is being able to clip moments from my favorite streamers, being able to edit and trimming the clips was always fun to do and letting you see how the clip turned out during and in the end of the trimming process was always satisfying. However after I recently updated the app the clips that I, well clipped, weren’t showing during the trimming process making it hard for me to know what unnecessary fluff I need to take out. So I pretty much gotta leave the clip unedited and hope that I timed it right which isn’t fun for me if I don’t know how it turns out after trimming it. I don’t know if I’m the only one with this problem but if I’m not and others have this problem and they can fix that issue that’ll be great and I might give it a 5 star because I actually like the app. Update: a recent update fixed it, so now I’m happy and will give it 5 stars.

- App Needs Work for Mobile Devices

I have the app for both my phone and iPad. I have never Live Streamed from my Phone, but I attempted a few weeks ago to do a Live Stream from my iPad because of technical issues with my computer. There was no real tutorial process of how much of anything worked for someone NEW to the Twitch app (had the same similar issues with the PC app version) and I could not make heads or tails of if I was actually LIVE or not. It just kept giving me a screen that was my cam, but appeared that it was still loading and this went on for a while. I also kept accidentally re-setting my stream details, only because I was trying to figure out what everything did (and that’s frustrating when you’ve told your viewers you are going live, only to have it take forever, it feels like, to get things up and going). The app for mobile devices and non-mobile definitely still needs some work in my book, but thankfully since I’ve been using it for a bit on my PC I have a better handle for it now, but when I first started I did NOT feel it was very New Streamer friendly.

- User interface is TRASH

The controls are atrocious to use. Can’t fast forward or backward without having to click the screen once where the busy user interface pops up, which serves absolutely no purpose. I already am following the streamer so why is this blocking half my screen as if I didn’t already who this guy I’m following was? Same thing when you pause the video in fullscreen. I pause it because there are things I want to look at but guess what? I can’t because this this thing is obstructing half my screen again. Can’t click it away like you do when it’s not in full screen. Are people who designed this stupid? Also for live, video and clip, only video does NOT have the sort filter out of the three. WHY? You have it on the web version. Why not on the app? The design is all over the place and inconsistent. The only good thing is that it has been stable for me. But everything else is trash. The controls, UI. It’s a mess to navigate through and it’s unnecessarily convoluted. Please fix it or I’m deleting the app. The web version is much easier to use anyway.

- Updated App Design, It’s a no for me dog

I’m on twitch almost every night and it’s not a huge issue but the new update is slightly annoying/ inconvenient. First world problem but when I go onto twitch I like being able to see who of all the creators I follow are online so I can choose which channel to watch at that time. Now it’s just the top 2 view counts that take up my first view and the scrolling is not as streamlined as picking from a more compact list. Experience of the app itself is worse with the new design. Just my opinion tho so it doesn’t really matter. I mean who’s really reading these things anyway. I could prolly talk about anything on here like hey did you watch the new bachelorette last night. Me neither I was too busy scrolling 5 miles down my screen to see the creator I wanted to watch. Anyways, I digress, is that the right place for “digress”? Is digress to a side thought what digest is to food. Very similar sounding. Anyways, digress, have a good night everybody

- Possible bug

I search for correct spelling and defenitions using the text chat feature while participating in a stream. When selecting text a popup > look up > my internet browser appears. When then going back to the twitch app the stream is in a small window. I select to maximize the stream (trying to not fat finger) and it closes the window. Now, my text I was working on is gone and I have to open the stream again. I have found my text to still be in the same stream like cache or something, but not always. Copying my text has been one measure to prevent losing my comment and minimizing the app > opening a browser and searching for the word that way is a workaround. USING LOOK UP TO SEARCH FOR A WORD DEFINITION SEEMS TO CAUSE INSTABILITY WITH TWITCH APP AND CRASHES THE STREAM (not every time, but enough to be bothersome). Hopefully this is making sense - cheers :]

- Great App..The worst Customer I’ve ever seen

Looking at the app from a developmental standpoint, the app is terrific. Outside of little things like not being able to change your profile picture, everything seems to run smoothly. However after having the app for a while I noticed that my email for some reason wasn’t linked to my profile. I tried to fix it from The Xbox app on the console but no luck. Then since I was already logged in on my phone,I tried it there, still no luck. I then logged out and that’s when I really started to get upset. My password and login info stopped working once I logged out then the reset emails weren’t sending and kept saying my account doesn’t exist. I thought I would email and it would be a 2 day fix...wrong! I’ve sent roughly 10 emails in almost 2 months and nothing from them at all. I received a bot reply saying I hope the problem fixed itself, when prompted to email back if it isn’t. They again just ignored my emails. The brand new game I wanted to stream is now 2 months old and I don’t even want to play it considering now no one wants to watch it. Twitch Customer Service officially ruined playing my games while streaming.

- I love this app but...

Let me get this out of the way: almost all the problems with twitch are erased on a computer. Whether on the site or on the app, on a computer everything works perfectly. However, on the phone it lacks a lot of what it needs. You can’t subscribe with twitch prime for some reason, and it’s much harder to navigate on mobile than on pc. The other problems are the sub tokens they added and buying bits. Why did they add sub tokens? They’re just kind of stupid, why would I buy sub tokens before instead of just subbing to who I want? The last problem is bits. The price of bits makes no sense. Ive been told before it’s about a cent per bit, but then why is it seven dollars for 500 bits? That’s way more than the tax should be, and my only explanation is that twitch gets a little bit too greedy between the viewers and the streamers and tacks on unfair prices, making it harder for viewers to support streamers. Other than that, incredible app, I love watching streamers and talking to the twitch community that you can surround yourself with, it’s really incredible

- Previous version better

The previous version was better in that it would remember games I last viewed. Now, I have to scroll to find the game. Though I did hate that it always showed most recent and it was all or none when deleting them, but oh well on that. If it’s possible to creat a favorites games list I haven’t looked for it, but apparently it doesn’t stand out either, for me anyway. I hate the new continue watching feature. I understand some might like it, but the only reason I watch a rerun is because I can’t find anything live I’d like to watch. And the only way to remove the continue watching is to watch them, fast forward to the end, then go back or to watch the remaining part. Why can’t I just delete items while they’re in the continue watching area. Plus, I have something stuck in continue watching because I apparently need to subscribe to watch it, so I can’t go into it and watch it or fast forward to get rid of it. Either let me disable continue watching or give me the ability to delete from that area, not by having to go into the video.

- Feedback

Needs improvement; Twitch could certainly use some new and fresh ideas in terms of viewers/viewing capabilities, native communication is basic at best yet struggles with latency throughout the app. When asked, the initial response given was from long time users of Twitch, which was great! others not so much mentioning several technical problems from namely the app in and of itself with a few other hiccups here and there as expected however Twitch in it’s entirety is a brilliant platform as well as a great way to showcase any and all of your talents if you will. Continually Twitch will keep providing us with UI glitches more often than not currently there is no way suggest anything aside from writing a long neutral review about said inability, currently there is no way (that I am aware of) to exit a video you’re streaming without closing the app one would think of this to taken care of already and maybe it is or their working on it, if not then the solution is right here, all of which could be provided at a small nominal fee 😉😏

- This must be out sourced to people who never used apps

I love how I can sync accounts like twitch to my discord. That’s how you get into sub only discord’s and this app makes it so easy! Oh wait no it doesn’t. You can log into your twitch but it won’t show you ANY DISCORD CHANNELS. ok fine. I’ll log in online. Sorry no login screen on the home page of discord while on mobile. Fine I’ll dig in even more and find the most hard to find link online to log in. Now I need to spend 30 minutes clicking buses on a “I’m not a bot” window more times than it takes to log into a major bank account or credit report monitor. Awesome, now I should be logged in right? Nope. An error saying you’re on the wrong type of discord. Why do I need to log into a computer to check or join “connections” discord’s. Has no one in the company ever been a human. It’s insane. Use the app. More than just once. Try things normal people want to do. Fix the website. Realize mobile browsers aren’t flip phones anymore and give actual full features on the site instead of less than the app even gives. If discord didn’t have a monopoly I’d wonder how the hell theyre still in business

- This Probably won’t be seen.

But the advertising is becoming a big issue. Not only there is far too much advertising especially the annoying ones GOD plz atleast choose advertising that is worthwhile to watch. But the advertisements have gotten so troublesome that it is literally causing saved streams to restart from 0:00:00 every time. This advertising has gotten so ridiculous that its about time for someone to revolutionize the way advertisements are handled. So it won’t be as annoying and disruptive as it currently is. I for one appreciate advertisements in the middle of shows, its the same as watching tv. But when it gets this disruptive, this annoying, this detrimental to an actual feature of your product it begs you to question why don’t anyone want to figure out a much better and more consumer-efficient way to show there advertisements. But you know what you wanna keep being this careless with this advertising fine I got plenty other things to watch!

- Needs polish

I love having twitch on my phone, but in its current state, mobile twitch is strictly worse than twitch on PC. There are lots of annoying bugs and quirks that all culminate in making it really annoying to use. For some reason, there is always a delay between the stream and chat that doesn’t appear on PC. In a recent update they made it so your phone itself has to be in dark mode to make twitch dark mode too, instead of just letting you toggle it from settings. This makes it really annoying when you want to switch from one app to another and keep turning dark mode on and off. Also, sometimes when I’m using twitch in light mode, it will magically toggle onto dark mode when I turn my phone sideways and then go back to light mode when I turn it right side up. Another major problem is that you can’t go to a streamers channel while they are live, so if you want to unfollow them or turn off notifications you are forced to watch an ad every time. If twitch mobile actually worked properly then I would give it a 5 star review.

- Close to perfect

If your into finds my quality content creators especially gaming Twitch is the place to be. The only thing that’s always driven me crazy to the point I almost gave only 4 stars is all the QUALITY broadcasters that are buried in such a saturated market. You must sift through hundreds to find a few hidden gems. “Partner” streams or “Featured” channels have put in the grind and deserve it but some of these other upstarts have no prayer to cut through the noise. With that said the majority of people sitting through directories do not take the time to sift to the streams at the bottom with little to no views. I find that to be the Consoles (XBOX & PS4) fault for making it so ez for any toxic 12 year old with a console can connect and upload toxic trash. So considering at the end of the day it’s not all on Twitch? I went ahead with 5 stars for the app. good for tips, & tricks for any gamer and other IRL streams as Well.

- Error problems

I’ve been having nothing but problems for the past few months since the coronavirus. I guess they gave up on this app or are too lazy to fix the problems with it. There’s not even a place to complain about the issues. I know Twitch doesn’t care about iPhone app problems because they don’t get any money from Apple. That’s why there’s not a subscribe button on there. Because Apple doesn’t make any money from Twitch. But it doesn’t explain the reason why I can’t get anything other than an error on my phone or on Xbox. There’s always loading issues and error problems. And no way to complain about it. When I do get to see somebody stream I can’t chat. Somebody needs to fix this or just ditch it and remove the app completely. I pay good money for subscriptions I can’t even watch the channels.

- Missing Key Functionality

So, no issue with streaming performance, but either A) there is a LOT missing from the app, or B) it’s super un-intuitive and these things are impossible to find. Missing features include: - The ability to subscribe to a channel via mobile. - The ability to see existing subscriptions and when they expire. - The ability to change your profile picture. - The ability to easily get to a channel’s home page if they are live. (I am forced to go into the live video, often causing blaring audio even when my phone is silenced, and then have to poke around to find a way to get to the channel’s home screen and THEN I have to terminate the still playing video). - A means to set subscriptions to auto-renew. (Unable to find this on the web version either - maybe just a missing feature?). All in all, forcing me to log into the site severely inhibits the app’s on the fly functionality. I’d think these item would be a priority as the easier it is to manage things, the more likely people are to download/open the app. While not a huge amount of competition in this market, it just takes one competitor doing it better to start stealing people away. If these features are missing, I’d recommend adding them. If they are just hard to find, I’d recommend either re-thinking the layout or adding an overlay tutorial that walks through functionality for users. Something that launches initially for brand new users and can be launched at will for people needing a refresher.

- Great idea, horrific experience

I absolutely love live streams, and twitch in general. I’ve been on the twitch bandwagon for longer than most, but can’t help to notice these extremely common, frustrating bugs. I will play live streams or VODs, and the audio will just go out. I used to be able to close out stream, change video quality, or close out app to fix it, but that is no longer the case. The only fix I have been able to find as of late is to completely uninstall and reinstall the app. I am now doing this 10+ times per day, and that’s unacceptable. If this issue isn’t solved by the end of this week, I’m just going to go watch someone else re upload one of your creator’s livestreams. Which mean that’s neither you, or the streamer you pretend to help will be making any money off of me, and I will cancel my multiple subscriptions.

- Not too shabby! Updated

I like the app and they've made some good improvements. The only improvement i can think of would be to allow for viewing when someone first starts streaming or has lower viewership...allowing mobile users to view would help increase the viewership. Edit added 8/2/14: there is an annoying bug that makes the streams freeze for a bit. It's not the internet because i've tested it multiple places. Annoying, but other than these two things the app is fantastic. UPDATE: Still a very good app. However, I’ve noticed that there are significantly more ads these days. An uninstallable number of ads. I’m sure if I pay/subscribe or use an adblocker I won’t have to worry about it, but it shouldn’t need to be that way. 6 ads is really way too many. That’s unreasonable. I came to the internet to get away from ads. Find a different way guys. Innovate!

- What is going on at Twitch HQ?

I’ve used the twitch iOS app primarily on an iPad. Each successive update seems to make it worse and worse. I tend to minimize twitch into a window while I work with other apps. In the past, this wasn’t a problem, the stream would keep playing and required minimal attention from me. Today, September 2019, not so much. The windowed mode of twitch on an iPad frequently becomes unresponsive, such that I need to completely close out the app and restart it. If ads play in windowed mode, I lose the window and have to re-open the stream I had open. A year or so ago, this wasn’t a problem. I could leave a twitch window running all day on my iPad without it crapping out within 30 minutes. Now, I frequently have to re-launch the app when it ‘breaks’. Unsurprisingly, when it breaks, I get to watch ads again. Please go back to the drawing board on this app. Go back two years, find what made it work so well, and implement it now. Today’s iOS twitch app is just a pile of s*it compared to how good it used to be.

- Twitch prime running ads

I used to get so many hours of enjoyment out of this app as a twitch prime member. I could channel surf with ease and go back and forth between all of my favorite streamers. I loved the freedom of being able to watch any streamer I wanted for 30 second or 30 minutes. Now that they have introduced ads to twitch prime members, it makes this app almost unusable. To watch a 30 second ad almost every time I switch channels completely ruins the experience for me. I literally hesitate to open the app every time I want to watch one of my favorite streamers. I previously used this app for multiple hours a day and since the change I have only used it maybe 2-3 times. There needs to be an premium option to remove ads! Subscribing to individual channels doesn’t help. What I liked about twitch was the ability to watch more than a dozen streamers in a 30 minute watch session, freely surfing between channels. Please do something about this!! I want to use twitch again without ads! I would pay a similar price to what I pay for a Netflix or Sirius radio subscription to watch ad free.

- Great App, Great Problems...

I’m on Twitch, on a phone. Twitch is great, there is nothing wrong with their app, only that something NEEDS to be added. For some stupid reason, you can’t turn on “Past Broadcasting” or something around that name, which basically means that you have the ability to make it available for your viewers to watch past live streams that they weren’t able to see live. Apparently this is only available on the Twitch website, so I had to turn on “Past Broadcasting bla bla bla” on the website. The only thing is, is that IT DIDN’T WORK. I turned it on, went to Twitch, and my live stream still wasn’t there. Ironically, the website has more features than the app does, but on a phone, both the app and website are garbage. Nonetheless, I will continue to stream on Twitch because I’ve seen what it can do on an iPad instead of a phone, and I love the app, just really mad about not being able to do slot of things.

- The issue isn’t the app it’s Twitch’s new direction

With the browser version of Twitch we can use extensions to remove things we hate due to the lack of a consistent blacklist on content we will Never Ever Watch. (Don’t drop twitch yet. Watch on chrome with a few extensions) Twitch, if I told you real talk and music channels are on my Top 3 hated list then please don’t showcase them even if you got paid to. I am not your market. You are wasting that ad-buy. Put in a real category based Blacklist so you can affiliate and ad-buy like a real deal company and do targeted marketing. All that is happening now is enraging your loyal consumer base to uninstall. Please use some of that recent investment money to get a real marketing team and learn to allow customers to curate their experience on mobile and desktop. Just because you have a paid for music festival does not mean every single Twitch user should see that first when they sign on. It’s a waste of eyeball time, creates user animosity, and has people turning Twitch off. Look at Steam that put in 10 category tags you don’t want to see in your home page for games being sold. Mimic that but do not limit it to ten IMHO. Do not make it exclusive to lower bar content but include the featured section. Cow towing to additional advertising and force feeding sponsored content is going to have creators looking for the next twitch alternative.

- This app runs terrible

This app won’t load videos if I’m using 480p or higher I don’t know why I saw it was at 360 for default don’t know why thought this was 2020 so I put it to 1080 wouldn’t load I was like ok I guess 720p is fine then doesn’t work so I’m like Jesus Christ 480p what is this 1995 but oh well better the 360 doesn’t work I exit the app every time in between changing the graphics just in case also so after 480 doesn’t work I exit it again cause I’m like oh well get back on it loads at 180p by itself I didn’t change it to 180p it’s not my phone I have a pretty new undamaged iphone 10 with at&t I tested my speed I’m at 150mb for upload more then fast enough for it to load it’s 2am and I live about a mile from a cell tower with full bars it’s not me this app runs so bad so if you like watching streamers on terrible quality this is the app for you Well I wrote that a while ago quit watching streams for a while now I’m back it’s on 720p and the streams won’t load this App is a joke

- I am an avid twitch user but this app is very frustrating

I on average watch Twitch streamers for 2-3 hours a day and it is my main form of entertainment. So it saddens me that the iOS app is riddled with so many issues. First off there is an insane amount of delay (15-30sec) which makes it very difficult to be involved in chat. While on my other devices the delay is essentially unnoticeable or very minimal (5-10sec) when I’m on mobile chat becomes separate and I no longer get the full twitch experience where I can be immersed in a community of other viewers. Having the app play in the background is riddled with issues and is extremely finicky. I can barely get it to play at times when I’d just like to listen in the background. Then when I go back to the app it pauses for a while consistently and then suddenly starts after waiting. Many times when I click on a stream it will be frozen without the option to press the play button. The only way to fix this is to reload the stream and sometimes it requires completely relaunching the app. I love twitch and the app isn’t unusable by any means but it could really use improvements. What is really disappointing is that the iOS app has been around for so long yet we still deal with these bugs. Considering a large number of viewers are on mobile it is time some work was put in to polish the app and improve the experience of mobile users.

- Some kinks but otherwise good

There’s quite a few things that could be implemented that the mobile version doesn’t have yet, but desktop does. I did notice that there is no longer a pop-out version for Twitch anymore and it’s frustrating that I can’t watch streams in a mini pop-up anymore while doing other tasks. Edit: after several updates the small media pop-out option is still broke and does not work. Twitch also has a glitch where they keep having your stream crash and restart a dozen times, sending a dozen notifs to your followers that can be quite annoying. Twitch studios software has also bee a huge reason for concern as the last several times I’ve streamed using it, it crashes the stream and then restarts it, as well as the layers I set will often times disappear and I need to reupload them. So I am removing yet another star till atleast some of these problems are fixed.

- Still a great streaming service, but the app/login is annoying

I love Twitch and I’ve been using it for years, but recently have stopped using it entirely because the app doesn’t want to play nice. The required login is really annoying, especially because the chats are always toxic anyway and I really don’t care to participate. I honestly just want to watch the streams. Since my account was stolen by people overseas twice, the password requirements have become completely obnoxious and I feel like I need a password manager to keep one that complex straight. However, I don’t have the ability to even do that. When I try to reset my password on my phone, the link in the email immediately redirects to the app sign in and not to the password reset screen (there’s also no option to just continue in Safari). Thus I’m stuck in an infinite loop of having the “wrong“ credentials unless I actually use a computer to right it.

- Freakin amazing but...

This is by far the best streaming service on the face of the earth. But there are some things that the pc version has that the mobile version doesnt. No 1. The ability to change your channel name. So i noticed after about a day prior to downloading this that you are unable to change your channel name. Now that isnt a problem for me but it may be for other people, as other users may not be able to access a pc or laptop. No 2. The ability to customize about me pages and channel banners: it’s basically the same reason. So twitch i really hope you see this and possibly make some changes but aside from that, twitch i a great streaming service and it will be for many years to come.

- Quality freezes

The quality usually be at the highest like 1080 but since recently there’s been problems where it just go to 360 or 166 and play good but at 1080 it skip every 10 seconds of the live I’m watching or it pauses and doesn’t play I tried goin lower to 480 but the same problem happens every time, one time I put it on my tv and it worked fine on 1080 then it started freezing so I put it down to 360 and the video was going back to normal just low quality it was moving at good speed please fix this I even deleted the app plenty times and downloaded it back to see was my phone the problem tried on different devices the same error kept occurring to I put it on a low quality everything else works perfectly just bad quality to where it have to go perfect good quality makes it freeze and skip over videos.

- Great App

I know twitch has been around for a while but I didn’t feel like I needed another broadcasting app. However, since 2020 I’ve been on twitch a lot since there is so much time now lol. I gotta say, it is a great way to connect with your favorite content creator. I’ve been noticed by the smallest content creator to the big ones who either have a huge following on twitch or are famous from another platform. My only issue is this app lags. Say I start watching a stream on my iPhone and then I switch to my laptop, the steam will be delayed. Other than that, it is a good app to make some friends for discord. I’m an introvert so I don’t really talk in chat but I’ve seen many people become friends in chats. Just to note: I think memberships and bits are pretty expensive and they run out super quick like I think after a month but that’s just my opinion lol. Okay.

- Delay

I like the app it’s very similar to the pc version. But a big problem I have is that there is so much of a delay. I was watching this Nhl streamer named Tougie24 and he was doing a draft. He wanted the viewers to pick. In the nhl game there is a 3 minuet time limit and I did not get to make my pick (the time ran out) because of the delay I would tell him to do something then it would take at least 30 seconds for me to see or for it to appear and in his chat. Another example Is when watching a stream and something cool happens it will be spoiled or revealed before you see it ruining the moment. Wether the rest of the chat is emoting or talking about it. I will always be the last person to see. This also makes having a conversation with the streamer difficult because he is waiting for 30 second to a minute to see a response because you see what he said so much later than it was actually said

- Many missing features and bugs

Using this app for years now and there’s been very little improvement over those years. The app allows you to do basic functions such as watch a stream, or tip bits. However if you want to do other things such as tip and subscribe you won’t be able to do that in the app. You will have to go to a PC or request desktop mode from the safari browser. When you request desktop mode it tends to cause problems for your fighting with the app opening and then trying to get the desktop mode painful process. Missing subscribe function is the biggest issue I’d say. Could this be true to be missing for so many years it’s just incredible to me. It’s a basic function on twitch it’s been around for a long time and that’s how you can show support for your favorite stream, same with tipping that should be in there too for some reason it’s not.

- Great app but bugs need to be fixed

I really love the twitch app for when I watch streams on the go but it does have a few bugs that are annoying. For one, only when I use the iPad app, anytime I type in chat the audio cuts out completely and I have to restart the app to get audio back in the stream. Another thing that happens is similar but when I type in chat sometimes the audio doesn't cut out completely but it cuts for a few seconds then comes back but its 3-10 seconds delayed from the video. As you can imagine its pretty annoying to not be able to use chat without having to restart the app and miss what the streamer is saying. Another bug is on the iPhone app. Sometimes when I click a notification for a stream and go into the app, the following page is frozen and I cant tap anything.

- Really bad experience

I was a partner, some guys put bots on my channel, exactly 15k bots that followed my channel, I report them, and I reported the toxic streamers that did it, but the staff is corrupted what they did was send my report to those channels, and type the report on their chat. I reported the staff and the channels again by the partner email and it was the same all corrupted the staff only listen to their friends and others streamers... really sad they just destroyed my career and everything and twitch did nothing they didn’t fired them they still working there but I can do nothing. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 i removed all the accounts with the ignored feature but it doesn’t matter the staff is corrupted whenever I send an email the same staff or her/his friends just delete the email and just like that. I’m no rich but if I had money sure I’ll be suiting Twitch and the corrupted staff that violated my rights and the twitch ToS. I guess it is what it is I just have to start over on another platform after all my years of work. I hope the Spanish staff from Mexico get fired.

- Customer Support

I recently had to delete my account because it was hacked repeatedly and the issue wasn't addressed quickly enough for any of my information to feel safe (i followed all preventative measures and my account was still accessed even without my two-step verification). Unfortunately, upon going to create a new account, i discovered i was trapped in my old account on the app, unable to do or watch anything, but also unable to sign out. I deleted and redownloaded the app several times to no avail. I'd love to continue using the app with a new account but it seems that i have to have an account to speak with customer support. This is both a cautionary review and last ditch effort to reach out and hopefully receive some assistance with this issue. The app is completely unusable to me at the moment which is a huge disappointment as i'm missing out on a lot of my favorite content creator's streams.

- Has anyone who develops this app opened it even once?

When browsing my followed channels, I can’t read 9/10 of the titles because there isn’t enough space given for the entire title to fit. Then I open the stream to check out what’s going on and the title is still not completely visible. You would think, no problem I can just watch for 30 seconds or so to see what’s going on, but instead I’m immediately hit with an .5-1.5 min ad. Also when the ad begins, the title completely disappears. If there was another streaming platform that cared about their user experience I would use it, but twitch has essentially monopolized the streaming market so they don’t care about anything other than profits. It’s VERY obvious. I’m sure this isn’t going to be addressed, but you guys need to get it together. The functionality of your platform is completely garbage. It takes less than 5 seconds for me to notice obvious glaring issues with the app. I’m convinced no developers have opened the app.

- Good... mostly

I do have one major gripe with Twitch for iOS. I typically watch Twitch on my TV using a game console, but I open the same stream on my iPhone because it's easier to type in chat with the phone's touch keyboard. Which works well as long as Twitch is running on the iPhone... except it doesn't. Whenever you pause your stream and then switch away from the app and then do something else on the phone, it's very likely that when you switch back to Twitch, the app will restart completely. This is really annoying because not only do you have to search for or dig for the stream again but often the app then makes you watch the 15-30 second pre-stream ad again. I don't know whether this is Twitch's fault or Apple's: I've observed it for at least a year while keeping up with the latest iOS software. Either way, please fix it!

- Lack of Customizable Access

The Twitch website gives you a lot of access towards your customization and profile editing. You can change your chat color, change your name and or capitalization, change your profile pic, etc. This app, however, doesn’t give you access to most of the offers the website has. It would be nice to be able to do certain things on the app instead of always having to rely on the website such as customizing your profile and being able to subscribe to channels by viewing them instead of having to use chat commands. Sometimes I want to support a streamer but I can’t because they do not have a set chat command. Overall, I’d appreciate it if the app would have more accessibility just like the website instead of it feeling like it’s taking away your access and ability.

- Love Twitch, but There Are Always Mobile Issues

I’ve noticed, as of late, several bugs unrelated to my internet connection and/or iPad/iPhone itself. When I watch streamers, often the chat freezes completely which can only be fixed by leaving the stream and coming back, or refreshing the app. This can result in more ads being played before the stream can be watched again when I’ve already missed a large portion of the stream. Additionally, separate from the chat freezing/not updating, the stream itself and ads often freeze as well when first entering a stream. Finally, I hope that mobile support for follower emotes and Prime subscription becomes available because I am more likely to use these features on mobile then to get on my PC to watch streams. Looking forward in the future to supporting my favorite streamers!

- Broken

I don’t know how this app has such high reviews. I’m just trying to use the app to watch past streams of some people I enjoy. Every time I pause the video and turn off my phone screen or switch to a different app it starts the video from the beginning, assuming it even brings up the video at all when I open the app again. When dealing with 3+ hour content, remembering your place is vital. I also can’t find a way to quit a video I started, just make it small and click on something else. (If there is a method, I haven’t found it with all my prodding and swiping). When I pause the video full screen, an overlay pops up that hides half the screen and makes it really easy to misclick something (For the 20th time, no I’m not trying to unfollow the person I’m watching, thanks), and also makes it hard to see the thing that I paused to look at. It’s ok (and actually better) to have some information and options outside of full screen mode.

- Love the app, but there are a few bugs

I’ve actually been really enjoying using twitch so far, but because I’m generally short on time I tend to not be able to watch entire streams. Good news is twitch records past broadcasts, but I’ve noticed that while watching past broadcasts there are some pretty frustrating bugs. For example, sometimes when watching a past broadcast and an ad pops up, after the ad break the broadcast will send you back to the beginning and you have to scrub through the video to find your place again, which can be annoying especially when watching longer streams. Also, the scrubbing is a bit buggy to, sometimes the bar acts like you pressed your finger in a different place. I really do enjoy using twitch, so I hope this bugs can be fixed.

- Everything you should know!

Twitch is great! Not only is it a wonderful way for gamers to create careers out of what they love most, (gaming), you can meet people with the same interests as you through the chat or maybe you’ll open up to the streams where you feel most comfortable. Many people have actually come out during another’s stream because that’s how warm and welcomed they feel when chilling out on twitch! The people are great and sure you might come across some bad people here and there but those people are everywhere, it’s not like we can just press delete and we won’t have to here from them again! Just get twitch! It’s fun and calming and a great way to meet new people. Go and give it a try!

- Could be better.

The twitch app is good for watching your favourite twitch stream. Video quality is great, easy to use menus and the like. But it could be a lot better too. First videos are about 5 seconds behind from the web browser versions so if you have the chat open you will see people reacting to something you have not seen yet. The mini screen is great when you exit the app (great if you want to check an email and don’t want to miss anything) but why does it have to pause the feed when you maximise the screen.. so infuriating. Plus it might be just me, but I can’t find the option to use my monthly Prime membership sub. I have to go to the browser to use it. It’s a good app, but with these little annoyances. You might as well just access the Twitch website through the safari browser if you want to take part in the chat. Use the app if you are just gonna watch the video feeds.

- The Disappointing Disappearing Act

So when are you going to address that fact that people we follow sometimes don’t appear under the channels tab? They are not online, not hosting anyone and they are not offline, they are just gone. This isn’t recent, it’s been going on for a long time. If I wanna catch up on a stream I missed I sometimes have to go searching deep for the streamer. If you can’t remember the streamers name then your just gonna have to wait for them to reappear in the channel tab. I’ve had to resort to taking screenshots of streams I follow just so I can look them up again incase they go missing l. I don’t understand why there is no page that just lists all the people you follow/subscribe to. I don’t need to know if their online, hosting or haven’t steamed in 2 months. I just want an accurate list where the people I follow are ALWAYS there. And where you can better manage the notifications for people you follow without having to unfollow and follow them to change the notification.

- Decent app overall

This app is well done relative to the standard twitch has set for their mobile apps, however I am personally experiencing a bug that crashes the picture-in-picture mode on live-streams whenever I receive a live notification from another channel. This is super inconvenient as I have to restart the app every time to get it to work again. If this were fixed I would have no issue with this great product! Thanks.

- Rewatching twitch stream glitches

I absolutely love twitch and i think its an amazing app but oh my goodness. Say if you miss a stream and you go back to watch it on the twitch videos, well if you turn off your device or you get an ad, and you go back to the video, the video restarts. It’s also quite irritating because for some reason my slider on the bottom of the screen isn’t working and its really annoying because i have to spam the +30 seconds button just to get back where i left off. So to summarise what i basically said, If you are watching the stream videos, it restarts the whole video when you turn off your device or get an ad and if you try to use the slider tool it wont work for going backwards. This is the only reason why twitch lost both 2 stars for me.

- Absolutely the one of the worst experience in my entire life.

My account was suspended for buying bits and cheering them on a stream. Today I received an email saying that it was fraud activity and it was an indefinite suspension I must say for something like that, the Twitch team team needs better judgement security and strategies of dealing with stuff like this, never have I ever seen such holes in a social media platform till now. I will resent my feedback if and only IF!!! my twitch accounts appeal is successful I will allow 1 week to change my change my mind seeing it took 3 weeks to decide to suspend my account so this should be an easy decision. I’m not a bad person I’m not greedy, I am a law biding citizen who always plays by the rules I would never ever commit unjust acts.

- Abysmal Streaming Options

Common Twitch! You guys are the leaders in online streaming, how could your own app lack so much in streaming abilities for mobile streamers? It forces anyone who is serious about streaming to look for alternative OBS’s. Zero ability for quality selection - aspect ration, bit rate, frame rate etc. Instead it’s just 432p for everyone...That’s just sad. No editor for widgets etc. so you’re forced to do all adjustments on your computer and then have no idea how it’ll look until you go live on your mobile. Also I use a microphone that attaches directly into my phone, so no chance of a delay. Doesn’t delay on any other OBS, video software, ANYTHING besides, of course, Twitch’s app... Please overhaul the app ASAP!

- Read

The Twitch App is Very Well Made But, People Such As Me that stream, Use the app too look at chat, Design There Channel, Etc I found changing your profile picture and channel art not possible on the app. I also found that there was not as much customisation as the desktop version. I think twitch should give more mobile streamers a opportunity to better design and do things with there channel. This App is very Good but needs work I hope, I can see some improvement with customisation and also more options to use the app over desktop mode. Thank You Heaps.

- Recently watched streams

Twitch is great for watching, and sometimes rewatching streams. But what’s annoying is that, say, if you swipe off a stream, you have to search up the channel and find it again instead of being able to quickly go too it through a “recently watched streams” feature. This feature is in the website I believe, but I’m not sure if it’s on the app. The app is still great and that’s just a minor inconvenience which is pretty uncommon. EDIT: this is a feature, I was just being dumb :/

- Video quality issues

This review does NOT mean you shouldn’t get twitch. Occasionally when I’m watching a stream my quality option only shows auto and the highest quality there is which isn’t a problem if you can run that but if you don’t have the best internet nothing will load. I haven’t found a solution to this except for disconnecting my wifi and even than that doesn’t always work. Please fix this.

- READ

I read the reviews when I was downloading twitch and that where all saying how you could do this and that. But my experience has been grate all up, you can do everything on the mobile app that you can do on the desktop app. BUT There where no reviews about purchasing bits using an iTunes gift card. Because when I tried to buy bits using an iTunes gift card, they just took the money out of my iTunes account and have never given me my bits which I have legitimately paid for?! That is my only criticism, so if you are trying to purchase bits buy them with a credit/debit card.

- Airplay to Apple TV

Airplay to Apple TV is absolutely terrible. Every time you try to stream to Apple TV the app freezes and attempts to play another random clip. Then it needs to be completely restarted and try again. When it eventually starts the stream, it will randomly crash every 15 or so minutes, meaning another restart of the app is needed, and we’re back to square one. Add in the stream randomly restarting again instead of at the time you were last watching it, and it all adds up to an incredibly frustrating experience. We have tried this on multiple devices and multiple Apple TVs and it is still the same result. It’s been like this for at least a year. PLEASE FIX IT.

- Clunky

Why can I watch 2 streams at once only some times and navigation is not streamlined super clunky it could be so much better like if it saved my settings I do Not want to click cs go streams in other languages that I don’t understand Sometimes watching a stream it will jump and freeze to catch up to the live broadcast so when it comes back I have no clue why 3 people are dead or who even killed them.

- why does the password have to be so complex

I’m not even kidding i’ve had to write the most complex and longest password just to make an account and it’s so hard to remember every time i have to reset my password… LIKE DOES twitch really need maximum security on the account like dedaas my twitch password harder to guess than for my bank, my email, insta and like idk my apple icloud 😭😭😭😭 can someone PLS go fix it i cannot anymore i literally wrote a really intense number sequence and used so many special characters and stuff and it still says password not complex enough!!!:!2!;!4! am i the only one or is it like a glitch or either the design is super annoying and dumb.

- Love twitch but a problem with recovering my account…

As a person that used to do live streams alot i really wanted to recover my account on twitch and live stream again! However when i kept trying to recover my account on twitch with my phone number it always said “invalid phone number”. It keeps saying it and i always say that it is my phone number and it shouldn’t be “invalid”. If you could fix this that would be great.

- Read

Twitch is a great app and everything about it is generally good, par the bias towards Alinity, though on IOS subbing costs $10 for a “Sub Token” compared to desktop’s $5. This has resorted to some streamers making a command that links you to the desktop sub page just so their viewers don’t have to spend as much money. Some things don’t make sense, but everything else is generally great.

- Latest update very glitchy (iPadOS/ios)

In the latest update the Picture in Picture button is mission but when I click in the area it used to be in it still works (visual glitch) Very frequent audio glitch that keeps happening is when the audio either duplicates or does weird things such as playing the audio of 2 different streams at the same time as well as duplicating the audio so there’s 2 playing at the same time on one stream. This latest update just brought many glitches and wish I didn’t have to update because the\is app has become a mess

- No longer bored

I like twitch because I can watch them live and see what they actually do when they play and they don’t cut their face cam thank you so much for adding the game frame because some people could have bad internet and they can change the screen settings so they can see better thank you twitch for letting me do and hope you have a time in the future

- Miss the older version

I’ve had an old version of the app for years until it finally stopped working yesterday. I was hoping updating would at least mean I’d now have the option to change the playback speed but nope. But now I do have to scroll past a bunch of recommended channels to get to the ones I actually follow, I don’t seem to be able to comment on old steams anymore, there are more ads than before, the font is ugly, and the dark mode is darker and the contrast is hurting my eyes now. I’ll get used to all of that but it’s just another instance of an app updating and changing things that didn’t need to be changed and making it slightly worse than it was. I do like that I can subscribe via mobile now though.

- Why is this app +17?

I just don’t get why this app is +17 because yeah there is a bit of swearing but who cares like 5 year old kids won’t be watching this stuff. Apart from that this app is awesome, you just look up a game and then you find a person and you watch it is just so good. I would definitely recommend this to everyone over the age of 12.

- It’s a good app but still has bugs

The latest update has introduced a bug where the text turns black making it impossible to see what I’m typing in dark mode. Since this update searching for streams doesn’t show if the stream is actually live or just a re-run. Also the app is still delayed by up to 30 seconds compared to a pc browser making it infuriating to interact with the streamer. The Mixer app doesn’t suffer this it’s instantaneous.

- Review

I am loving twitch joining a couple months ago. Enjoying watching Fortnite streams,valorant and much more! The one downside is the ads are so annoying. When watching a stream I get about 3-4 advertisement videos in a row! It’s very annoying please cut them down. Many people don’t enjoy watching ads. It’s not very enjoyable but other then that it’s great. - Anthony 👍

- The delay will be the death of me

When watching on handheld devices, the twitch app has a 15 second delay to streams compared to the desktop version. This limits viewers to interact with their favourite streamer more often which may also decrease the amount of viewers to a stream. If the app was the have the same 3 second delay as the desktop version, it’ll allow for clearer communication between parties anywhere due to how mobile these handheld devices are, thus increasing watch times for streamers. Please fix this issue.

- Issues

The app is a good starting point but I think we should be able to see the people that follow us. Also the notifications symbol will say I have notifications but when I click it it’s empty. Also can’t wait for affiliates to start making revenue off of ads. Even if it’s a very small amount, every bit adds up 👍🏻

- Missing heaps of Emotes

The mobile app is missing emotes such as Poggers, OmegaLul and Monkas. Also it’s hard to find other emotes when there’s no way they’re organised. All I see in the chat for the above emotes are there names, and they’re the most popular, it really takes you out of the experience and I can’t express myself along with others. Please fix this. Thanks.

- Chromecast Problems

This app is great but I am having a problem with live streams and my chromecast. When I try to watch a live stream the audio is horrible. Everything is good for the first 10 to 15 seconds but then the audio begins to cut in and out continuously. This is both for the mobile app or casting from my laptop. I don’t however have this problem when watching video, only live streams. Please fix.

- Whispers have been broken for at least the past 2 or 3 updates

Whispers have been broken for at least the past 2 or 3 updates. Messages randomly disappear and reappear, duplicate, and for the past several weeks it’s been showing me i have an unread whisper but it’s no where to be found so i can’t even get rid of the notification.

- Amazing!

This app is amazing. The positive vibe that the streamers share is very impressive. They put some much hard work and effort into creating successful streams for their viewers/community. Aside from all of the positive outcomes there are a few negative parts involved in this app. Sometime the audio does not work and their videos as well as the audio isn’t synced. Apart from the slight problems, this is a very useful app that can be viewed by many people.

- Amazing

I have found twitch to be a amazing app were you can express yourself in minecraft,fort nite, just chatting. On twitch I can creaky be my self and do the things that make me happy. I love watching all my favourites stream and I totally recommend twitch to everyone .It has everything and something for everyone💕

- Dix the delay when watching a stream!

The delay is sooo bad, it’s annoying to be 10-15 seconds behind a stream when you want to see and reply on time. The streamer’s already moved onto another topic by the time those using mobile hears it and can respond! Please fix this! I don’t want to always be using desktop/laptop, especially when I’m in bed.

- Bring Live streaming to Ipad’s also

Live streaming seems to be available in phones, but not on Ipads. It would expand the streamers base for ppl who want to stream their Ipad gameplays. Also, another thing that could be added is bringing a tutorial on how to use twitch to stream and upload videos. I am struggling with this as this is my first time using Twitch and so I do not know how to upload my videos.

- Great Service

It’s a really good app that you can use to watch live or previous streams, the main 2 faults are setting up your own live stream (which is only in beta) and the slight lag between streams and chat, which is probably just my internet. There’s a reason why everyone knows about it, and I highly recommend using it

- MOBILE STREAMING

So, I’m a small streamer which has around 300 followers. I stream IRL but the thing is I play on Nintendo switch and stream Fortnite IRL. So I have to aim my phone at the screen and stream IRL. But, you need to fix that when it says select a category. There’s only just chatting and others. Like you can’t pick the game your self. Please fix this so I can pick Fortnite when I stream.

- Great app, but needs a couple of tweaks

Firstly, the app is awesome. Very well made and great UI. But I find it really annoying how you can’t subscribe to anyone through the app. You have to go through the main website. Also, when in full screen mode, the current time isn’t visible. As in the time of day on my iPad. Such a minor thing that really stands out when you wanna know the time.

- Love it, but have a suggestion

Twitch is amazing, honestly one of the best apps. To make it even better then it already is I would love to see a watch later option so you can save streams you don’t have the time to watch now for another occasion. But other than that I love twitch.

- Just started

Started streaming on this app a few weeks ago but my follower count is not accurate on the profile thought it might be lagging but it's been a week still not updated. Don't know if you are aware of this issue

- Could’ve been a 5

Could’ve been a 5 but it’s not. Why ??? Well every time I’m watching an old stream it sometimes doesn’t send me to the right time of where I left off, and every now and then I try to watch, there’s a mismatch audio. If these problems are fixed then it’s a 5 star other then that it’s not.

- Browsing is impossible

Watching pre roll ads to see what other streamers are showing is ridiculous and restricts bothering to explore more twitch channels and grow the platform. Why not pre roll after a minute not immediately… you watch 30 second ad to see the channel is not worth staying on after 5 seconds of viewing… infuriating at the least.

- Verified only chat bug

There’s a bug in the current version that makes all channels say they are in verified only chat mode. They haven’t enabled that mode and my account is email verified. It mostly happens if I open from a push notification, workaround is closing and opening the app manually.

- Love Twitch, but some things desperately need fixing

Twitch is great. But these 2 things drive me absolutely insane. 1. 'Swipe to change streams' feature NEEDS to be optional. It is FAR too sensitive to even the slightest touch, incredibly annoying when you then have to go back to the stream you were watching and are hit with another 30 second preroll ad. Results in missing up to 50 seconds of stream time. 2. This app is incredibly intrusive and plays in the background after you've exited. I will exit Twitch and not even be using my phone, then 5 minutes later the audio from the last stream I was watching will just start playing until I go back and close Twitch again. PLEASE FIX these issues.

- Not intuitive

I deleted my twitch account and now I can’t use the app because it comes up with an error due to the deleted account and removing the app hasn’t worked and I can’t log out of an account that no longer exists 😒

- Noice

The swiping gestures are great, can you please bring back the swipe left / off screen to stop the video, instead of it just sliding off screen but still going? It gets frustrating quick when I try to tap to close but it fullscreens. Other than that this app is very user friendly

- Love the Idea

I love twitch and what it promotes. Being able to interact with broadcasters and the community is incredible. Also having an easy way to support the content provided by channels. However the app and website aren’t the most functional with it quite often being quite annoying to try to get to where I want to. 4 stars

- How to block a certain Ad?

It’s a satanic Ad for audible, I don’t care if it goes for 30 seconds makes me want to click off the stream 😏 It’s like a guy from Australia travelling to different cults around the world. Great app otherwise and love supporting streamers by watching ads, but I don’t want to download an ad blocker and don’t always have money to support the big streamers like DrLupo

- Very good!

I prefer it on pc but it still works good. The only downside I can think of is that you can’t follow streamers with going to their stream which can be annoying because when you go back and have to watch an add. 9/10!

- Helping me grow channel

I love to use twitch. I use it as not only a way to escape stress and talk to fans online. But also to grow my channel! Twitch is a great to use and easy streaming service with 24/7 updates and bug fixes! I love using it and I will keep using it.

- Flipped screen?

Hi there. Recently I started using my iPad to stream games on Twitch and it works really well, except every stream I do, the screen is flipped 90 degrees to the right. How? What? Why? I just want to stream without making my viewers see the screen sideways, as seing the screen this way takes the viewer out of the moment. Apart from this H U G E issue, the app is good.

- Lag time delay

I would give a 5 star review but the streams are lagging behind the mobile and web versions by around 5 to 10 seconds and chat reacts to something that you haven’t seen yet because of that lag. I’ve seen a review from last year that said the exact same thing so it’s sad to see it hasn’t been fixed yet. Please fix it.

- I like it

I like it because you can make a good career out of this but the down side that I want to be able to delete streams because I made mistake streams I was going to stream ROBLOX but my laptop very bad so It was very laggy so make a feature that u can delete streams

- Frustrating hidden defaults

I was reading Reddit and happened to click on a link that opened the twitch app (instead of unmute). I then switched back to my browser and continue with my activity. The app continues to run in the background, chewing up over 10Gb of mobile data and drained most of my phone’s battery in approximately 1 hour. So I started exploring the reason why it uses up so much data and it turned out the the default setting for autoplay is for both, WiFi and mobile data. Other options are off and WiFi only. Now, why does twitch thinks that having the default setting of WiFi + mobile data and streaming in the background is beyond me. Tldr: check the twitch autoplay setting in case it inadvertently consume all your bandwidth.

- Verified email

I verified my email but still can't talk In chat because I receive a message saying It requires a verified email address

- Uncontrolled ads

Self-refresh means ads all the time, no matter what the broadcaster wants.

- pogchamp

needs more vikkstar

- Connexion trop complexe

Quand les critères pour le mot de passe sont plus exigeants que ceux d’une banque... Tellement compliqué pour rien!

- Ya

Great app 👍

- Simps

Twitch is a great app but the twitch mods simp to pokimane. Until the mods stop being simps I will keep the rating as 4 stars

- Help

The app is great but..... every time an ad plays while I'm in the middle of a stream it would restart it. Pls fix this soon

- #FREEMINX

She gets banned for saying simp yet male streamers using slurs against women are nothing, this disgusts me, this is minx’ job and she’s a big comfort to many. Do better twitch really disappointed.

- Simps

Their is way too many hoes getting money from simps

- Twitch is simp

Twitch is dumping for thots

- Ban

Ban pokimane

- Simp

Simp

- 8 ads in a row

Twitch, are you kidding? 8 ads 30 sec each in a row while streamer is in online?

- FINALLY STOPPED SENDING VODCAST NOTIFCATIONS

Finally. You still get one star though. There are nice ways of showing off a new feature and then there's the way you chose to do it.

- supper pog

sub to dream

- Simps

Even though I never downloaded and saw the app WHEN I SEE THAT POKIMAINE THING IM GIVING IT A 1 STAR

- Great Design

The app works great and is much more functional than watching through safari. It also looks really good too and is easy on the eyes at night.

- connection issues

i cant even load the browse page, let alone watch a stream

- Constant bugs. Unwatchable

Whoever is working there has added a purple screen that prevents viewing for 90 seconds every 15 minutes making streams unwatchable.

- hey

i gets kicked out of this app everytime i try to load into it fix this bug please

- Too many too long ads

Not a fan of having to watch a new 30 second ad on a stream I am already watching every time I go back to it if I minimize or pause

- Review On Twitch

Twitch is an outstanding platform on which I can watch my favourite creators compete. My only downside is that Twitch does not have a hide chat feature. I feel that having chat on can sometimes be beneficial it often takes away from the overall enjoyment of the stream. More often than not you have annoying people writing odd messages or them trying to be funny yet they are mistaken. Twitch is an excellent addition to my device but I feel that a setting to hide chat would make my personal experience better!

- Making accounts is not working

First off I try to log in my account and I forgot password and had them send me email and then password would never work so I had to do it a bunch of times and still didn’t work, then they suspended my account which made no sense because I never go on twitch so I’d don’t do anything, then when I tried to make a new account several days later they said I made the account too fast which makes no sense why is there a time limit of how fast I’m going ?? There set up is hard and difficult and made me stop using twitch because I couldn’t log in and it wasn't even my fault. Fix my account twitch ur missing out on someone who wants to try streaming and watch videos of my friends because I love too.

- Mercenaries

Ad 1 of 6

- Ads

Too many ads.

- Pokimane

Lol

- Can fry eggs on my phone

iPhone X extremely overheating

- Doesn’t feel finished

So not only does clicking a name or emote pop up a seemingly unclosable tab that you need to do a series of unnatural button presses to get out of, but it also doesn’t keep up with the stream properly. So people in chat see things a solid 10 seconds before I do, and that makes watching my favorite streamers less fun because I can’t interact on current topics. For those that are deciding between getting the app or watching in a browser, do the browser.

- How do I stream from my iPhone 11

It says online but nothing is happening please help👉❤️🛎🌎

- Woman

I love woman

- Twitch on Xbox

It is becoming more and more difficult to watch any saved videos for streamers on Xbox, there is severe lag, patchy viewing and horrible sound delays... this forces Xbox users to go to Mixer or YouTube for streams.. please fix.

- Broken app

Password reset verification process is broken. Keyboard doesn’t show up so you can enter the code sent by email

- Sudden black screen

Starting today the app doesn't work. Streams show half a second of video but then go to black screen permanently. I did not update the app or iOS since last night, so ???

- Love it

But, I cant go live on my phone and im trying to stream cause im really good but cant it says something about im not aloud

- DREAM SMP

It’s awesome for DreamSMP fans! 5/5

- This platform is not good

The hoes don’t get banned

- Twitch

I’ll keep it to one star until you take out the pokimane picture.

- Idk

Tbh I just put a low rating cuz y’all won’t ban sexual stuff

- WHAT A FRUSTRATING APP

Please use the desktop version if you can! 🙏🏼This app is an embarrassment on twitch's side! Let me list all the issues I’ve and many others have suffered through: -Generally Laggy -Emotes don’t load properly (face emotes are warped) -App will occasionally freeze -Crashes randomly (general) -subscription renewals demand you to send a message to your streamer (wont go away)(very annoying!) -The chat literally freezes (randomly - common) -Latency is higher than on desktop (significantly - 10-30 second delay!!!!) -Window mode can cause crashes / freezes -Emote history randomly erased -Can’t search emotes (over 100 emotes btw) -Ads reload every time you re-enter a stream for a second -Bug where it thinks I’m not following the channel while they’re are streaming! (Same goes for subscribers)Seriously???? -Post crash/freeze the app takes 20-30seconds to load up again -tapping on chat bar is too damn small! -loading past broadcasts crashes or freezes everything (occasionally) -loading clips constantly freezes and then crashes the app -the clip / broadcast slider is terribly unresponsive buggy -can’t change badges / make choices like you can on desktop (many missing features - like why????) -running clips and past broadcasts freeze but the audio keeps going (started happening - reloading *sometimes* works) -Tapping on ‘see all users’ doesn’t load, then exiting freezes the app while the stream is on in the background (VERY ANNOYING) -When the streamer does a raid, it kicks me out if their stream and so I end up missing the ending of the stream! WHY?!? AND THE LIST IS STILL GROWING If I had the choice to use the desktop version without any lag or awkward UI, I would stay far away from this app and beg everyone to avoid it for the many reasons I listed!

- Very Good

I love this app (Follow masterbucket749 on twitch)

- Infinite ads

I hate ads.

- I enjoy Twitch but not a fan of this app

Why does Twitch run better in a browser than in the actual app? If you guys would let me sign in through a web browser on my iPad I would do that instead. It’s the same issue with more popular streamers on my PC. Luckily on my PC I can at least sign in via a web browser. :/

- Bad

Bruh your simping for pokimane putting it at the front I almost threw up 😔

- New Following List Design BAD

The thumbnail previews of streams in the Following list are FAR too large. It takes ages to scroll through my list of live streamers now. Awful design choice. Please make the thumbnails small again!

- Why change the follow list format?!

Before I was able to check whose live quickly by seeing a list of online followed streamers in the follow section, now it shows the entire stream instead of just the streamer name, makes channel surfing waaaaay more tedious. Also the hype bar is awful and needs to go

- Hype train size

Twitch is probably my favourite app, but recently there was an update where the hype train and gifted subs takes up the whole screen. It makes the stream size smaller and is distracting. Previously to the update, the hype train and gifted subs did not effect the chats size. This is just a recommendation, but I would love if twitch reverted to the past update, or fixed the issue where it takes up the screen. Thank-you!

- Good but add cast to tv

Add casting to tv

- Subbing with prime and normal sub

We should be able to sub with prime and if someone gifted a sub, or else the sub goes to waste.

- Glitches

Some weird glitch with my name appearing grey all the time, also the subscription tokens are more expensive than if I could sub on pc

- I’m sad how often live feeds cut out
