  • It’s not a bad app but.... Feb 4, 2020

    By McCaseyFresh
    It’s not a bad app but it would be nice to be able to subscribe and donate to people straight from the app. Besides all that the Twitch app seems to have been working just fine for me for quite some time now. I really enjoy being able to watch my friends and favorite streamers while on the go. It’s also a great time passer when sitting at my psychiatrists office and having a 3-4 hour wait just to see my doctor for 5 to 10 minutes. I don’t know anything about the live streaming part because I just use the mobile app to watch and as far as that it seems to work pretty good. It would be PERFECT if they’d implement the “subscribe” and “donate” buttons somewhere in the app though. Maybe put it on the screen next to the “follow/heart” button on the actual stream video. Ive looked everywhere on the app and hadn’t been able to find the sub or donate anywhere on the app and will feel pretty stupid if it’s been there the whole time but none of my friends or any of the viewers on other streams using the app have been able to find it either. Please update this app and add those 2 things and people would probably use the app a lot more!

    Good app - there are a few things that could be better but overall all, if you are used to using Twitch on the pc, you know what you are getting here. I have seen some people complaining about the lack of quality options and the presence of adverts but this depends who you are watching and the ads disappear if you are stubbed so don't worry about these points.

  • Some problems May 26, 2020

    By Crazykid0416
    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.

    Its really good and simple to understand and use, but there's one big problem. Everytime I start watching a stream there's a 30 second ad, which is really annoying since you can't skip it either. If you could either ad a skip button or put shorter ads, like 5 second ads. If you could fix this, then I'll change my rating to 5 stars :)

  • It was great until a recent update kinda ruined it for me Aug 9, 2019

    By NinjaMaster21
    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.

  • An odd platform Aug 20, 2020

    By thebeachwalk
    A truly odd platform. With twitch most obviously dominating the live streaming market, and consumers or users having nowhere to go they must resort to twitch. However, is twitch really the best for streamers. Like most companies, there is always favoritism, but it seems to have shined in drastic measures. Where as twitch claims they treat everyone at the same by law and standard, but then the same action is enforced differently. This causes odd encounters like the ones with the infamous “Alinity”. She notably did some actions that were called out by millions and even companies but nothing happened. However this is the least of my concern. The true concern is that she had to ask for a ban, and that the moderation accepted this. When a user has such high power or the high powered of the system is cause discourse, and arguments arise. Twitch is a decent platform but they get shot down with their mediocre at best moderation team who has to be asked by the civilians of the city, or streamers, to have actions done, even when they know these actions have been done. Simply put, the admins and moderation have too much power in the scheme of things. And while power is needed, it’s being incorrectly used by the staff to punish some and not others. Thank you.

    Not the best experience.. recently I've been trying to distract myself on those nights by watching streamers on my galaxy note9. The video stops a lot, and a bunch of ads play like every 10 seconds. I'm an Amazon Prime member and I was hoping I'd get less or no ads. By the way, some account features are unavailable on the mobile app.

    Ever since the 9.8.1 update (installed about a week ago), the app has been significantly less stable than before. It has either simply stopped in the middle of viewing a stream, or locked out all device controls (making it impossible to quit or switch apps). I've had to hard restart the device half a dozen times since the update. The prior version did *not* lock the device controls. I'm seriously considering removing the app permanently at this point.

  • Great App..The worst Customer I’ve ever seen Mar 25, 2019

    By Jamalprince
    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.

    Absolutely horrible. Unless you have the best of connections, the streams will NEVER play, on any device. It is 2020, and they still don't have the option to turn down the quality of the stream manually so that you can still hear and converse with the streamers, even if you can't see the greatest. I thought this company was out here to help streamers connect to everyone around the world, not just the people that have top notch internet. This is a very poor way of operating a business.

  • Close to perfect Sep 20, 2019

    By Amazon Visa
    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.

  • Unstable Dec 14, 2017

    By Sarastartree
    While it often works and is still a very valid, not at all half-baked alternative to the website, it has been fairly unstable for me since day one. I’m nowhere near a frequenter of Twitch, just occasionally watch the streams of people like Vinesauce and Vargskelethor, but it’s become harder to handle since the new iOS update that changed the layout of the menu you get when you double-click the home button. Whenever I decide to play the stream in the corner of my screen, it pauses, and sometimes simply disappears. Today has been one of the worst days I’ve used it, as I can only spend, say, a minute on the app before it freezes up and forces me out. This isn’t the first time this has happened, either. Maybe the solid third time, and I’m fully unable to access the streams for more than maybe 20 seconds before it quits out. I’ve tried resetting my iPad and redownloading the app, but to no avail. I’m certain it’s an issue with the servers at this point, and a very pesky one. Please fix this as soon as possible, so I can actually use your app. Thank you.

    This was a terrible experience. Every 5 seconds or so, the stream I was watching would black out and only resume after I had restarted my device, only to black out again. The help is not all helpful at actually solving problems and is slow and unresponsive. This and a plethora of other bugs have lead to a poor user experience, and this app would be great if it actually worked as the content is actually pretty good.

    Twitch as a platform is decent enough. I've met a lot of great people and had tonnes of fun streaming. But this app has a lot of trouble with latency and lag that you just don't get in your computers web browser. Also, making a 5 viewer minimum for raids is a slap in the face for small streamers.

  • Honest critic Apr 17, 2019

    By Mortal_Man
    While the app wasn’t the best for mobile streaming, or watching older videos (had plenty of times where the video would reset entirely after watching an ad, or just randomly flicker and then reset back to the start of the video), it did work well enough, though I still don’t understand why the method of getting bits by watching ads was removed from mobile, despite already giving barely any bits by comparison to what you would get for watching an ad on your computer. The recent change of adding “recommended channels” to the home screen is buggy for me and doesn’t actually load correctly (being stuck with the initial error message as well as the “recommended channels”), but reloading the page works as a workaround for now. I personally find most of the recommendations, despite being a push to make me watch more content... distasteful, as most of them are people I followed and didn’t want to see again as the community was either to exclusive, or I didn’t really connect with the streamer. So honestly, it shouldn’t go on the home page where I have my listing of what I started watching, and the streamers I do want to watch and am following. (More to follow

  • A major suggestion Nov 22, 2018

    By MoonlitSkyPaintingBlue
    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.

    I was fine with it until pop out mode was changed. Now the pop out window can not be resized nor moved around with complete freedom compared to before, which ruins it to some extent(unless you like watching a very tiny version of a stream) Edit: Your clip mix being on top of everything is completely unnecesary and somewhat annoying. Scrolling through discovery is also more awkward since thumbnails use half of more of the screen, making it take much more to scroll through it compared to earlier

  • Unstable as of late Nov 26, 2018

    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.

    The whole communication with twitch is terrible. I know if I forget any login details and don't have the details saved anywhere for me to look at, my account is pretty much as good as dead because even when I say I forgot my password, nothing will get sent to my email. It's been months since I last requested for my password to be reset and still nothing. Even when I have a code "sent" to verify my current account, nothing. Twitch is great in other areas, but it's communication is the worst.

  • Previous version better Aug 26, 2018

    By Jason6210001000
    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.

    Needs better device support. I've got a flagship phone from Samsung (the Z Fold 2) but this app doesn't support multi tasking windows or flexmode split screen like YouTube does. Cone on Twitch. Catch up! Oh yeah and the ads are absolutely obnoxious. I subscribe to 10 streamers but I can't support more than that. God forbid I try and watch someone I'm not subbed to, that experience is terrible and I usually just choose to leave the stream and this app.

It has either simply stopped in the middle of viewing a stream, or locked out all device controls (making it impossible to quit or switch apps). I've had to hard restart the device half a dozen times since the update. The prior version did *not* lock the device controls. I'm seriously considering removing the app permanently at this point.

  • Great App..The worst Customer I’ve ever seen Mar 25, 2019

    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.

  • Unfair, favors certain streamers, no communication. Sep 27, 2020

    By qidrjvf
    Although a good idea, the people running it ruin the app. Twitch has been known for favoring some streamers over others. There has been many instances when streamers were NOT banned for inappropriate behavior, such as violence, nudity, sexually suggestive behavior, animal cruelty, and more. All of which were girls. The way the app works is that if your an attractive female Twitch streamer, you don’t have to follow almost any guidelines. Many streamers such as Alinity (fed Vodka to her cat) have done terrible things that Twitch moderators refuse to ban her for. Male streamers can be banned PERMANENTLY for showing your body in a tank top. While females can do the same thing and not even get a slap on the wrist. I’ve seen female streamers with dedicated cameras for their butts and chests, which would obviously pass off as sexually suggestive content right? Wrong. Only if a female does it. Many of my favorite streamers were banned for no reason at all or a reason that was not stated by Twitch staff. Twitch bans streamers without telling them at times over something that may not have even happened. I won’t get into all of that for the sake of more people reading this.

  • This must be out sourced to people who never used apps Dec 14, 2018

    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
