New bug with recent update Overlay windows are MUCH worse than before. With the new update on Galaxy 22 Ultra, when I enter an app that has its own sound and twitch is an overlay window, I can only resume the stream after pausing once. The second time it doesn't resume and the stream needs restarted. So inconvenient

Reaching affiliate could be a little bit easier, there are a lot of things I would love to stream but it almost seems like you can't progress unless you have a ton of friends who are willing to watch you everytime you stream, or, play games that everyone watches even if you don't like the game and can't really get into it. The follower count is easy enough but the average of 3viewers watching your stream simultaneously per video for 30 days is very rough. My only issue.

Charging more on mobile for subs then PC? Get no deals on mobile for subs. Can't choose what tier sub you want on mobile. The app crashes if running it over another app and try to click on the open video player in the corner. Will also stay playing if you answer a phone call, even after closing the video player or the app altogether. Also the sound changes from loud to quiet at random. Mobile is constantly delaying behind, consoles even stream better and stay on time compared to mobile BUFFER...

I'm not sure what the recent update has done but it makes streams literally unwatchable, not like they're bad quality or lagging, but they're just straight up all a black screen. For context, I started using twitch again for about a week now and everyone I've tried watching has had the same thing happening to their streams again and again. I join the stream, it's completely black AND the streamers audio cuts out every second, I am not exaggerating. It was never like this before. What happened?

It works. However, finding old content on Twitch is a terrible experience. I'm sure you used to be able to search for clips by game on a streamer's channel but now this doesn't work. Doesn't feature on the main site either! So you can sort by popularity over a period of time and then just scroll. And scroll. And cross your fingers. Also, tap on a clip to watch, go back, you're back at the top of the list! 😡 And the three dots menu button does nothing.Why bother saving years of clips to be lost?

The App's video player and chat seems to be extremely fragile under a bit of inadvertent stress testing. Before I get into that, I think that known internet personality consumption is pretty nice but streamer discoverability demands outsourcing. That aside, I've noticed that whenever I have the full-screen chat open it stops updating after a few minutes. I've also noticed that the in-app picture-in-picture player can completely crash or glitch out unless it's full-screen and the UI is visible.

STILL waiting on bug fixes. Nothing has been fixed for months. Chat doesn't update properly, when minimised the stream glitches and you can't watch the image in full view, if you tab out then back in you can't type in chat unless you restart the whole stream, channel redemptions sometimes just don't work. So many bugs.

Really like the app. Just wish I could get my profile pic. Up n working? Tried over n over..guess u gotta pay to get it up?would be nice if the creator would make this option a lot easier...other then that loving @djbird channel..he's pretty 😎 cool& plays a lot of great 79s , 80s n a great variety. Love that there's quite a few great live d j.s on twitch too. So there's a Nice variety of music( just wish there were more live d j 's that would play 70s classic , & 80s rock too.

Latest update made it so when I go to a new stream I have to either stop casting and re-cast or close the app and reopen it on while the new channel I want to watch is on it to switch. It no longer automatically switches when you go to a new channel.

App is great! Have been watching a lot of streams but there doesnt seem to have any problem at all EXCEPT for one the ui on Android or phone and tablets in general seem to be laggy for some device and two registering and logging in is a little slow

I can't say there is anything wrong with the app itself, just some bots needing better cleanups or smthn. But that's not the apps problem. Good streaming device, can't see why you shouldn't use it. The one thing is on mobile it can freeze the screen sometimes, not the best

Weird grey side bars to the sides of stream. Chat is black, as it should, but in Fullscreen mode the grey side bars are too distracting. It doesn't help that my phone has an AMOLED screen so I can easily tell when it is pure black or not.

A recent update (within the last 2-3 months) has made it so mobile playback is always 40-60 seconds behind, regardless of refreshing the stream, wi-fi vs data, any option or settings. It is immensely frustrating watching streams and seeing chat react then waiting another 40 seconds to see what happened. It is legitimately a better experience currently to watch streams in a mobile browser than use this app.

Flex Mode is broken on the Z Fold 3 after the latest update. I used to be able to swipe to the left in Flex Mode to comment and see more of the chat and now it only shows a very small portion. Please fix it if you can.

I love Twitch and the content it represents and opens up BUT....this app has a lot of bugs and annoying issues that make it difficult to watch at times. Lag, buffering, repeating segments are just to name a few. It's amazing that gamers have a platform to showcase their skill and personality, I just wish this app did a better job of stabilizing the viewing experience.

The ads are outrageous! Not only it's unskippable but its also 3 ads together for 30 seconds for each! And I can't even get out of the full screen when the ad comes up. It comes up every 10 mins or so to the stream as well. This new update is so bad.

Lately y'all's updates have been making the app worse and worse to use. Especially removing the friends list and messing notifications from friends who send messages. Not to mention the countless issues I've had trying watch streams at all. Aside from those it's a good app, just stop breaking it.

It just gets less functional every day on my pixel 4a. Constant buffer and voice stutter with full internet connection. Homepage loads up as black screen and needs a reboot and cache clear. 1 clip will work and others won't preview or load if tapped and you need to refresh. It's play button when paused and vice versa. Now with MORE ads even if streamers don't choose to run ads. Disconnects from chat FREQUENTLY which means close and reopen stream... Which prompts ads. It's a mess.

The amount of ads are excessive. Watching a stream will often have multiple 3 or 5 ads in a row. The issue is that the ad box is larger than the actual stream box. The layout is too busy when searching through categories as well.

as much as I love twitch, it bugs out so often and doesn't let me access the app for DAYS and I don't even know why! it just freezes on the loading screen and I can't do anything about it. I've even tried to uninstall and reinstall it SEVERAL TIMES and still nothing! This is a reoccurring problem that happens even mid-way through watching a stream, and has made me miss several streams entirely.

Video stay minimized when I go from portrait to landscape mode.. hope there's a fix for this soon as it's annoying to back out of a stream every time. Also a lot of the times im unable to view clips on my phone. No matter how many times I press on clips it won't let me view and I have to exit and try my luck.. please fix this!!!

The absolute worst update ever. So many bugs and for some reason, the update made the app function WAY WORSE than it already was. The pause button doesnt even bring you to the live feed which is so bad since you cant keep up with it if youre lagging. Why even remove that function? Also, the app is so slow and laggy accompanied with that. Those two problems are the worst possible combo ever. When can the new update come I wonder. This update was horrible and Twitch needs to do way better imo

Twitch is the hardest to use, most annoying streaming service iv ever known. You have to be a twitch regular and use it often else it's far too much of a pain to try and use for special events only. Making an account is frustrating and I have 4 but it's easier to make a new one than recover my old one so screw it

So many problems... The app will not let me select/set a profile pic on desktop OR mobile. There is a constant lag when I try to watch anything. The comments don't load half of what is being said, which is annoying seeing as the streamers we watch are personal friends, and most of the time, *if* I get a notification that someone is about to start a stream, its about an hour late and the streamer is already offline

Horrible. Sends a confirmation code, but going to get that from my text messages erases all the data for registration, meaning I have to start over, which means a new code. A vicious circle and not worth a thought. Pure garbage.

Nothing more than an advertisement streaming service with the occasional bit of original content just so that they seem legit. Not to mention the easily accessed pornography that is allowed to be shown on this service. Honestly the only reason I use this app on my phone is for the notifications so that I can go watch from somewhere else like streamsquads

Twitch definitely is my favorite streaming platform, however as much as it might seem to be, twitch is not very welcome to new and fresh streamers. Sure, you'll get your name out there after a while, but I don't mean viewers, I mean the UI. For a newcomer it can be tedious and frustrating to learn everything there is to know about twitch such as overlays and setup edits. Another thing, in the mobile version as a viewer you cannot see the overlays of new streamers, for example, overlay expert.

Clumsy app that is hard to navigate and lacks basic features like being able to rewind a live stream. Miss something durring the many unskippable lengthy adds? Too bad so sad no way to rewind and catch what you missed. I wish my favorite streamers would go to YouTube because this app is total trash.

The app is your regular streaming app. Sadly, it kicks me out, buffers and crashes almost constantly. It's nigh impossible to enjoy a stream when the video is constantly buffering.

This is a great app for streaming live video. The only problem I've found is when you exit the video into a window (aka. You can still see the video and another thing on the phone at the same time) it freezes on different frames. Overall though, it a great app.

It's usually pretty good but for the last few weeks, it ignores the resolution you set (I set it to 360, internet has a hiccup, the app adjusts to 160; that's fine. Internet comes back, the app bumps up to 1080p60; no, just go back to 360). They regularly fix bugs like this, but also regularly add new bugs

I can't even log in to the app. When I enter my username and password it says it's incorrect then when I try to get a password reset link it never comes no matter how many time I try the email with the password reset link never get sent to my email connected with the app previously. Please help me out with this issue..

Works well but I'm rating it as one star since they fail to update the pricing on the app. Why pay $8.99 for a subscription to my favourite channels via the app when I can do that for 7.99 on the web browser. This also applies to bits as it costs $2.49 for 95 bits when I can get 100 bits for $2.25 on the browser version. This a scam and needs to be rectified immediately. AVOID spending money on the Twitch app until they fix it.

Video with twitch is just horrid. New streams ignore quality settings causing you have to reset it each stream. Videos buffer constantly on a 50mb download and 16mb upload. I don't have issues with vevo, you tube, etc.. just twitch. On WiFi and mobile networks.

Awful app. Consistently chugs on a good connection, creating clips literally doesn't work, picture-in-picture disconnects you from chat so you have to reset the stream and watch an ad. I love connecting to my favorite creators but using the twitch app is horrible.

Twitch is a really good app!! I have been using to watch all my favourite streamers for a while now. Although I dont enjoy the amount of adds that we see, sometimes 4 at a time without skipping, which is really annoying because I dont have the money to pay for subscriptions.

DO NOT UPDATE YOUR APP Latest update removed my friends list, removed some privacy settings, streams constantly keep showing a loading bar now, app keeps crashing, message bar in the chats keep disappearing randomly, animated emotes keep flickering and etc. My phone has had zero issues running this app prior to the update. Edit: Now the streams just freeze and black out. I can see chat, but that's it. Please twitch revert back! This update is HORRIBLE!

It'd be cool if the video actually paused when I hit pause, as apposed to tapping it once, waiting for it to start playing again and then hitting the pause button a second time. This has been going on for months, fix It holy hell

Just hell no. Way too flakey, too easy to just swipe away a live stream, lose chat history. Just, no. Seriously, who's making these design decisions? Update: new update and now the play button doesn't work, have to close and restart stream. I'm now scared to install updates.

Really enjoy the app, until it seems that last update and I just installed it again, lets see 🙈from a lag it's alot of fun! Now the way Twitch uses the streamers for every nickel and dime they make it's um ohh terrible aside from the greed, just give more benefits to the little people and take more from the bigger ones... But it's truly amazing how many people from third world countries have been streaming their way out of poverty for a new and better life and have been winning on Twitch !!!

Destroyed the app. If watching picture in picture ads misformat the video. Randomly pauses on its own and can't be restarted without closing app and going back in, resolution changes by itself even when auto isn't selected, so many bugs you can't list them all. Seems like nobody knows what they are doing

WHY does it seem that the more updates implemented, the less user friendly and more problematic this app becomes? This latest update is UTTER GARBAGE! No friends list, unable to set your visibility, constant crashing and/or buffering. It's starting to make me not even want to use the app anymore. On top of that, WHY are there updates WEEKLY? Your tech team needs to get their act together and make these updates ACTUALLY improve the overall experience!

After some years and with several different phones I've used there are still bugs with background play. The audio stops when turning off the screen and then buffers again when turning screen back on. I hope they will address this as someone who prefers to listen to livestreams instead of watching. YouTube is a much more streamlined experience.

Ok what is happening to the chat? It just stops updating and freezes, I can't do a single move that I get "disconnected from chat" and then I have to close the stream and open it again... In a good day because when chat starts freezing I have to close the app and open it SEVERAL TIMES until I just let it be and forget about it. Get it together.

The latest update introduced a bug that messes up resizing. So when you flip the phone screen or when you exit out of the app and the screen minimizes so you can still watch via a popout, the apsect ratio gets all screwy.

mobile twitch is so dogshit that even if the app opens you won't be able to watch anything because seemingly no internet connection is quite enough for the player and even then if you manage to get 100mb/s on mobile you won't be able to see anything because the screen is 90% UI and then watch a 30 sec ad that replays if you dare to touch the screen

Create account. Everything has green check mark...click to proceed Then says username unavailable. Try again....so i try again..then " you are creating accounts too quickly".. something is wrong with how your form is validating data with the server. Your going to get filled with junk data and discouraged "would- be" users quickly if you dont fix it.

This app is jank AF! I go to the pop-out vid, then when I come back the emotes don't load. Sometimes the vid comes back with black borders. There's tons of lag. And lastly, for now, Twitch favors PC users over mobile users with things like animated emotes and follower emotes and other stuff being implemented on mobile way after the PC version.

I wanna watch Twitch and then it freezes to the screen on the log in screen and then it says "Twitch has stopped." and then it keeps on saying "Twitch keeps stopping." This is the worst update on twitch ever yet on twitch history. I would highly recommend you to not go into this app until they fixes the bugs that is present on this app.

Since this new update it's no longer formating to my phone screen and chat doesn't load properly I have to physically scroll to make messages load. I used to love this app and it may have been a little iffy in the past with lag but now it's almost annoyingly usualable! Please either fix it or undo this dumb update!
David Ovalles
May 22, 2022
My experience was simple: Black screens ( with audio somehow ) Unsynced voices with video and the ads which were absolutely messing with the playback of the stream. I tried looking at solutions for this and none worked it seemed that before this latest update twitch at least worked somewhat now i cant watch a streamer for 5 seconds without the video freezing. Overall needs major rework even the actual twitch website was somehow 2 seconds better until freezing.

Recent update is really bugged, if twitch is just running in the background, its process automatically 100% loads a single core and you need to force stop the app to prevent ridiculous battery drain. Additionally when watching VOD, there is 5s buffering every 30s, even on stable connection.

I use this to watch previously aired streams that I am subscribed to. The app never remembers where I left off so I have to screenshot every time to remember where I paused so I can manually seek to the point I want to continue from. Other than that it works.

Worst update ever! Getting rid of the friends list was terrible! I follow a bunch of streamers, but when I want to watch someone that has only a few watching, they may or may not show up on my list. It often cuts off and only shows channels with 50 or more watchers. The friends list made it much easier to join a stream I already follow, as well as checking out new ones. I don't use the 'browse' function. Instead, I will log off. Basically, w/o the friends list, I will spend less time on Twitch.

Great on website! Bad over mobile! Continuous issue of trying to watch stuff while on mobile data is horrendous! Many times over I have tried changing the settings for the data, even uninstall/reinstall the whole 9. Changed formats, plus some other small settings. Twitch is the only app on the market that doesn't work on mobile data CONSISTENTLY. TikTok, YouTube, Instagram and many others I have zero issue with. Just twitch is better either on a laptop/computer than it is on there phone.

Twitch as a streaming platform is fine. It has the occasional issue, but what doesn't? This app, however, is trash, and that's putting it nicely. Most of the updates make the app slower. The app randomly crashes. Videos constantly buffer, no matter how low the resolution is set. Sometimes the app never fully loads in at all. I would recommend if you can avoid having to use this app, please do. It's unacceptable for an app to be this buggy, laggy, and crashy, and still have 4.5 stars.

Pause button is bugged when i press it , it shows the pause button as play button and the play button as Pause , I tried resetting and I have the latest version . Second bug is comments on video's doesn't refersh and doesn't appear automatically ,i have to fully close stream and reset video for comments to appear for a few seconds and the issue reappears again. Third bug is the full screen gets very tiny "zoomed out" by itself and when in pop up mode it's very zoomed in not a pop up layout.

Twitch what a wonderful app for someone who isn't tech savvy and hasn't had a phone for over several months this app was very easy to jump back into. It now also (or at least i think it was recently added) the feature to stream games from your phone which is great. Logging in was super easy and choosing the types of streams you wanna watch was simplistic I love this app and I believe that you should too

Would be great if it was able to capture game chat from other people in game, instead of just being able to play and stream with same console in party and even then including the audio is rarely used by people. Maybe add options for overlays on console as well, like make it to where we can see all the overlays we put on ourstream if we choose to.

In the latest updates, the app's UI became really glitchy. Sometimes, after switching to another app and then switching back to Twitch, the UI completely glitches out and becomes unusable until I restart the app. Also, there have been some other minor bugs that existed for a long time and haven't been fixed yet.

It works pretty well overall. I use twitch almost every day as a viewer so I really like it. My issues are that 1) mobile lags about 9 seconds behind desktop 2) I get disconnected from chat frequently 3) "Audio only" and "chat only" have disappeared from the settings which sucks cause I used those a lot.

I do know this may not get seen by the higher up but hoping something will cause a change in the algorithm. My brother who is trying to become a full-time streamer is having difficulties finding reviewers and subscribers. Without the risk of moving to YouTube has crazy rules compared to twitch especially with all the work he put into it. This is all he can do he cannot do physical or public work because of his health especially when he has to dream 8 hours or more just to get more viewers.

Is the mini screen no longer an option and switched to audio in background only? I loved watching streams on the mobile app because of this feature. But recently I find that this is not possible anymore, and I can't close the app except by clicking force stop (accidentally clicked uninstall instead). Is there also a way for me to manipulate the volumes? Everyone's streams are far too quiet that I have to put it on max volume to hear anything, which then blasts my ears when ads come on.

Review current as of 5/18/22 While the most recent update seemingly fixed many of my problems, a lingering one is that if I get disconnected from chat, that's it. It will not reconnect until I leave the stream and reload it. No amount of troubleshooting or waiting changes this

YouTube goes a lot further for their streamers and content creators then Twitch does. YouTube does it a lot better. In terms of having a better player. As well as a better chat experience. And also the ability of accepting super chats and donations and memberships for YouTube channels. And channel raids. And better and more consistent bitrate for streaming. And is more readily available and more accessible to devices. Not worth downloading don't waste your time.

This app is the worst app I have ever used! Taking control of screen brightness,, showing black screen, constant buffering and also not getting closed even after I fall asleep several days..

It has it's good and bad days, something that has never worked are the notifications for when people go live, you could say I should memorize schedules and all that many people don't and just getting a notif when someone goes live is convenient. No matter what I do in the settings on the app or my phone have fixed it. The good days have slowly been decreasing as there is CONSTANT buffering no matter what I connect to or how poor I set the quality to.

This app never loads. Buffers every 2 seconds so all the content I watch is horrible, or I never get to see real time anything happening. I have to hope I loads up for more than 3 seconds before pausing. And when I close and restart to try and reset my app, all the ads I have to watch over again. Honestly this is the worst maintenance I've seen for an app. Who approves this and says "aww yeah our app is amazing?" Because it's far from good

I can stream full hd vids on a variety of platforms, but get choppy, skipping playback on Twitch and Twitch only, regardless of video resolution. It has been this way for years and has never improved. Doesn't matter if it's on 5G or home network, watching streams on this app is abysmal. Twitch is great. This app is not.
Dreamcatcher
May 16, 2022
Used to switch from my desktop to my phone just for the sole reason there was no stream delay, now I find myself doing the opposite because the app will lag constantly and the delay will easily be up to a few minutes. I just want to be able to watch my friends and interact with them faster. AND, as a streamer myself I find the delays really annoying when I am trying to interact with my viewers.

I don't know what the developers changed over the years, but I get a constant buffer about 4 times within a minute every so often. Looked online to see how to fix it and nothing worked. I've even tried with and without WiFi and the same results.

I love this app, but the reason why I give it a 4 is because when I watch past streams on my phone it works perfectly fine, no buffering, but when I watch it on my fire stick, it buffers every 30 seconds, but my wifi is fine though.

As everyone is saying: the latest update has broken things—BADLY. Always lags behind stream EXCESSIVELY now, not the typical mobile delay. As a streamer, I rely on mobile to monitor on my breaks, as well as engage others when not at my PC. I am finding it buffers back every few minutes, and if I leave it running on my phone while the same stream is on my PC—or even the dang PS App on a TV—after 30 mins the mobile stream is SO far behind it is impossible. Twitch is doing a lot of weird lately...

Worked fine for ages now with the new update I can't even open other twitch channels without closing the app, it will open to the chat only but no video. Only way to switch to other twitch channels is opening another app like YouTube then ill go back to the twitch app again where it will automatically change to the channel I was trying to open, very very annoying!!

Update 5/14/22: Still awful. Unless I'm sitting right next to my router, it buffers like crazy. Got a newer phone and it's no different than previous review. Had take a star away...It's terrible. Constantly buffering, even when I have a good mobile network signal. Incredibly frustrating while I'm trying to listen on the go. However, apps like YouTube and Netflix work just before and after trying to use the app.

No way to add extentions or use mod view in the app, with it installed you can't use the web browser to access twitch on mobile. It's great if you don't mod or want full access to anything, they need to add extensions or a viable mod view with actual mod features I.E. predictions, polls and more.

Like the ability to be able to stream mobile games, however the videos after have not so great quality. Despite going with recommended settings they are clear when a game has lack of movement or you aren't moving around much but as soon as you do, grain is unreal. Would give it five stars if my CoD Mobile videos didn't look like trash after the stream was over.

The clips UI was already not ideal, autoplaying a random next clip without option to disable, but now it doesn't even have the option to change the elapsed time; it has now basically been dumbed down to a "stories"-like interface.

The latest update has introduced a few new bugs that are particularly annoying. 1. Hitting the pause button and then unpausing a stream does not skip ahead to live feed, instead it resumes where you paused. The only way to get back to live feed is to select a different video quality. 2. When you first open a stream and get a 30 second preroll ad (for example), once the ad ends you now have 30 extra seconds of delay to the stream!

This app is broken on Android to the point of being almost unusable. It disconnects me from chat constantly and when I minimize the chat to reload it, the stream won't even open back up. I have to go to the person's channel page and completely reopen the stream. Sometimes upon minimizing a stream I'll get nothing but an empty home screen, forcing me to close and reopen the APP too! I now have to touch the screen to see new chats. Chromecasting errors out and forces me to re-cast constantly too!

Used to be perfect but now theres so many terrible bugs when watching streams that almost feel intentional to make you reload the page to get hit by ads. Chat disconnecting eveey time you reopen the app, going full screen doesnt fit the screen, opening chat in full screen causes even more problems, and the only way to fix them is closing the app and reopening to a minute of ads. Every. Time. Oh and not to mention ads every 10 minutes on vods lol sucks to be you if you didnt catch something live

I don't normally review things but this app is basically unusable. I stream 1080p 60fps on YouTube with absolutely no problem whether I'm on wifi or not. With twitch I can be 2 inches from my router and it still buffers every 3 seconds and can't even run at 144p. This sucks because all of my favorite streams are on Twitch, but I almost always have to use YouTube.

Use the desktop site. Functionality is limited even without the almost necessary add-ons and plugins on desktop but it's a genuine pain on mobile. The app functions, and watching streams without problems is possible.
Casey Passeri

The mobile app keeps disconnecting from chat recently when the app is put in the background. This means when switching back to the app you have to close the stream and reload it, playing more ads each time if you aren't subbed. This is a horrible user experience and potentially a conspiracy to serve more ads. Will revise review when this is fixed. Until then, use Chatsen for chatting and pop out the player.

Not a great app. Its cluttered feature-wise, and is lacking any sort of bandwidth saving option besides stream quality. No chat opt-out, no video-only option, no option to disable emotes, ads can bug out, and is more of a battery hog than Youtube is. Amazing. When ever I can watch streams on Youtube instead of Twitch, I do that.

Design is decent, but the bugs make it awful. Chat desyncs constantly, gotta relaunch. The emote keyboard messes up the regular keyboard and the playback size—relaunch. When you force close the app, no matter if a stream was even playing, it will start playing the audio of a stream. Only way to stop it is to open and close it again. Deleted the app to see if that would work (it did, props), but when I re-downloaded it, the 2fa didn't work. Just keeps emailing me the same wrong code 😂 terrible

Extremely buggy on android. After i watch a clip, i can't watch another clip unless i refresh the clip page (drag and let go). Has a very high chance of zooming in or zooming out when i don't want it to (e.g. rotating between landscape and portrait contantly randomly adds black bars or zooms in).

Yeah I did love the app but many times I have been getting the message "reconnecting chat" and there is also a time where it just keeps loading and loading and loading and I refresh it but there are times when it does it again and it been happening a lot, so could you please fix this and my internet works perfectly cuz my other apps doesn't have any problems.

This app gets so bugged out, from it going all black, to me getting constantly disconnected from chat, to it for some reason glitched into the top corner of my screen after full screening. Its literally gotten so bad that it's a daily thing i have to deal with, and my wifi isn't the issue nor is my phone

Pretty simple to use but Mobile is overly complicated in that you cant use every feature or even archive vods, but I figured out a work around and it does what I need it to do, the automated copyright thing is annoying and makes mistakes had to retry a few times because my stream got muted for nothing only solution turn all music off
Haley Strayer

horribly optimized. i have to open a stream to report it, when i minimize a stream it gets even smaller in the window (best way to describe it), chat doesnt consistently update (or update in real time at all. sometimes ill watch as a message i sent a good bit ago pops up as if i just sent it.) its so stiff to use, which is a shame, because i enjoy the content creators i follow on twitch and watching them on this app makes it an unpleasant viewing experience. Also, no low latency option! Awful.

i use it for my Xbox one to do streams and use my phone to manage and look at chat, the issue i have with it though is the website isnt fit for phone, too much is crammed and video highlighting theres SO much clipped out i cant see. even nothing i can interact with to change whats highlighted from a stream. most of all i cant upload, it physically wont let me. i wish all these features i never seen were on the app dedicated to other platforms and not just the website.

Keeps disconnecting chat. I use it to see how stream is going. It either disconnects chat or won't continue to move chat. Have to check if scrolling needs to happen. Now channel redemptions are not working. Click into the menu but click on them does nothing. Basically is just a thumbnail screen no access. Otherwise it is a way to hear streamers and sometimes chat.

Hay Twitch, please fix you clip editor feature in your app because it takes too long to load, even freezes up the app to the point I have to close the app and restart the app missing the part I wanted to clip. Also despite refreshing, I unlocked emojis with my points and they don't appear but I my points were still taken; ripoff points if you can't get what you unlocked. Unlocked emojis work using the internet browser but not on the app; still shows locked even repeated refresh and closing then opening the app. Fix you app Twitch.

Had constant issues over AT LEAST a few years. VOD chat doesnt work if you scroll up was the first issue i had. Not only did that issue not get solved, but now the chat would just straight up stop working in vods after a minute or so. When vods youre watching go to the external background player on android, going back to the app completely breaks it to the point where your entire phone freezes. On top of that, clips break when you try to watch multiple and sometimes just do nothing when selected

Entirely too many ads and they're too long as well. During a live 4 different ads for 30 seconds each will pop up which is awful and takes away from the live you're watching. Just don't waste your time downloading this app if you don't like ads.

Good for watching, or streaming. There is stream severe delay on mobile, however that doesn't bother me. When I wanted to change my user name however, I had to enter my password. I did and It said it was incorrect even though it clearly was correct. I then reset my passwords 2 times. After that I closed all my windows and it logged my out. I tried to log back in and it kept saying my password was incorrect again. I tried reseting it and I had apparently reached my limit on password resets.

Sometimes I cannot watch live streams because it keeps buffering, even at the lowest quality. The chat will work just fine. However if I want to watch a past broadcast/stream then I have to have it on the lowest possible quality. If it isn't on the lowest quality setting then it continuously buffers every few minutes no matter what else I try. Other than that one issue I quite enjoy Twitch.

I love Twitch, but this app has so many bugs. Especially the Chromecast integration, which is still almost unusable. Chromecasting causes the app to drain my battery in a few hours, as well as the quality switching all the time bug which has existed for literally years now. And now changing streams while casting doesn't work.

As others have mentioned, I'm constantly disconnected from chat, requiring me to back out of the current stream and come back. However, the worst part of this app are the ads. You can't skip them, often times there are multiple ones, and they are pretty lengthy. Extremely frustrating.

The app has a major bug, on the homepage that shows live channels, recommended channels, recently watched streams, and the list of followed channels, however it seems that when you follow enough channels to have above 25 live at once it stops showing anything past it. Very annoying when i prefer watching smaller streamers and the way its ordered makes the smaller streamers literally inaccessible.

This app used to be great, but in the last two months it practically became unusable, when you click on a stream it loads for a while then just give you a black screen, (happens on both my phone and tablet) sometimes it even plays an ad video first which works fine, but the stream itself is just a blank screen. vods also works well without issues, but what's the point of a streaming app if streams won't work?

Chat replay always freezes. There's no chapter selection for mobile. Mobile is very spam encumbering. I can't see 1/4 to 1/3 of chat sometimes as result. It's built for PC. There's somewhat of a disconnect I.e. emotes: can't see, can't use. I didn't understand cancel culture until i got this app. It is a good app in a lot of aspects, I just had a lot negative experiences. ADpocalypse!

This app is so bad, it makes me wish there was an alternative to Twitch. From constant buffering to videos crashing to a black screen, there just isn't much of a reason to use this app. Oh, and good luck trying to listen to audio with the screen off. You have about a 50/50 shot of the video just stopping when you turn off your screen. I wish Amazon would actually spend some money on bringing this app up to speed.

Feels like an early beta, instead of a production app: it's brim full of bugs. Pause the video, then switch to another application: the mini player will appear, and playback will continue automatically. Rotate your device? Playback will start automatically. The mini player also goes in some weird error modes frequently, showing other parts of the UI than the video. VOD skip controls are a mess; trying to skip forward or backward is a fight against the chat and info panels, almost unusable.

Super annoyed that the recommended channels are first in the FOLLOWING tab when I very much don't care about discovering new content unless I use the DISCOVERY tab... As a new user, it is so backward to go through stuff you don't want to get to the actual channels you marked that it took me 3 weeks to figure out that the endless scrolling had something at the end... So far, only plus on this app is the overlay feed that works very well when on another app.

The latency on the mobile app is terrible. I can have the same stream playing on a computer nearby and it is several seconds to a minute behind. It makes the content of the chat confusing. While ads are playing i cannot subscribe, follow, or gift subs on a given channel. The chat options are also limited and can't create or show threads.

Live feeds work fine other than lagging a lot, but with multiple phones and app reinstalls I have never had chat work on mobile. It just either doesn't ever load or it will load but freeze if I try to chat myself. I also hate that they charge more for bits etc on mobile AND that you can't control your subscriptions on the app.

2x unskippable 30 seconds advertisements pushed on viewers multiple times on short delays? That's just a terrible design. Really takes away the focus from the main content. I installed the app for less than 30 minutes and I already feel heavily disappointed and unmotivated to keep using the app any longer.

Hi, so I've noticed that consoles are prioritised over mobile. And PC are prioritised over both. PC, Consoles, Mobile. I'd really like for you to change this.

Lately the ads have made this app so frustrating. You'll click on a stream, watch a 30 second ad, then sometimes within five minutes you'll get a 5-7 ad spree. This app has become almost impossible to enjoy because of the onslaught of long ad sequences, 5-9 ads in a row.

Picture in picture background mode is completely broken. If I switch from full screen to picture in picture and try to go back into twitch it will go into full screen mode but there are no controls to minimize and my phones Navigation buttons stop working. The only way to get my phone working again is to restart it. This app has been getting more and more unusable with each update. Often when I close the app and stop picture in picture mode the audio from the stream will keep going till I reset

There are so many adds it's ridiculous. I go into a channel I get one add and I'm like fine, sure I'll watch it. But NOT even a second later I get 3 more adds. This app is a joke and so bad. So I can't even watch 10 seconds of gameplay before I get 3 adds after already watching 1? Don't download this app. It's garbage. Adds and then more adds which really ruins the experience and viewing. 0/5.

The app has become increasingly glitchy with every update on my Note 10 plus. Picture in Picture either stutters constantly, or is completely broke to where it's unusable. opening the app from the mini window breaks most of the time. Only fix being to either continue rotating my phone until it happens to magically fix itself or just closing out of it completely and reopening it. Random pausing (to be fair has gotten better recently) when I'm not clicking on the stream at all. PLEASE FIX!!!!!!

Constant crashes makes it really hard to stream. Drops my average view count every time it crashes too. When i turn my stream on after it crashes its a frozen screen and i have to force close app and re open to stream again but the app seems to crash within a few minutes or even sometimes after an hour. Makes it hard to stream no matter what device im on, i have the same issues when streaming on xbox too. Ive been having an issue also where my videos are missing for the past few weeks.

I love the creators on this app so much, they are incredible and entertaining and there are so many awesome communities. However, THE MOBILE APP SUCKS SO BAD. It's is painful to use. Especially picture in picture, 90% of the time the video is frozen, but at least the audio plays. Regularly the picture in picture rectangle becomes frozen and unresponsive, blocking the screen. HasanAbi's content is the only reason I continue to suffer with this broken app.

The app used to at least function properly. Now every time I minimize it, it blacks everything out, requiring me to close the entire app and reopen it. Then I need to find the channel I was on again and hope I didn't miss anything in chat. This also makes ads run again if I'm not a subscriber.

Chat for some reason consistently fails. Both live and replay. The stream constantly buffers rendering streams impossible to watch when all other apps work and it works on IOS at the same time, meaning it should not be a network issue and is something with Android Twitch. Twitch is pretty bad on all modes but it's a shame mobile seems to always be so broken on IOS and Android.

This dmn app ever since the last update has a MASSIVE lag on the VOD of 15 seconds. What I'm seeing on screen is 15 WHOLE SECONDS behind reality. It is very frustrating. Please fix this Twitch. It was not like this before the update. In addition, if you pause a livestream, THERE IS NO WAY TO GO BACK TO WATCHING IT LIVE, you get perpetually stuck 15+X seconds in the past. Once again, it was NOT like this before the update, please I hope you can fix this Twitch. SHARE EXPERIENCES, EVERYONE

If it's even possible, it's pay to win. I just started watching someone's stream, get an ad, at this point I'm not mad that happens alot. 10 seconds in, 3 ads. If you actually have money that won't be a problem. But if you don't have money that will happen alot. It's also very laggy. It's not even my wifis fault. I have perfectly good wifi and it still sucks. It's the definition of a dumpster fire.

The mobile app for Twitch is almost unusable in it's current state. From the chat being extremely delayed, constantly having to open and close the app to connect back to the chat, entire app blacking out when going in minimize mode, and more. Before the last update, the app was still broken but atleast somewhat usable. Ever since they fixed the ads not showing on mobile bug, the entire app went straight into the garbage. This is a prime example of prioritizing monetization over functionality.

Buggy asf. After clipping, you're disconnected from chat and have to leave and return. There's a glitch when the stream is smaller than the allocated box and the picture in picture is overzoomed. Another glitch where chat is sent with 5-10s delay (even with stable internet). Just buggy as hell.

I would give it zero Stars if I could, it wouldn't let me delete any clips or prior streams also, the lag was terrible and the ads were horrid, I saw completely inappropriate ads that could be shown to minors almost every time I clicked on another person's stream. But what I'm most upset about was it not letting me delete my own content.

They need to add subscriber Notifications while your off stream, this is a must have to keep the Streamers up to date so they can thank there own Subscribers in there own channel. Like in an email, or in the subbed box. Also switching apps causes chat to disconnect, you need to close the channel & go back in, it's frustrating really. I think they can do more & help small streamers with views, in stead of always running ad's they can show different Clips of small streamers with low view counts.

Please please update the app to include the ability to change playback speed on VODs.

This would improve the experience drastically for me and many others

Absolutely horrendous streaming platform. Very inconsistent and you're lucky if you get your notifications. Never mind being removed from chat because you're wondering why their resolution is lower than that on YouTube for shows streaming from the same channel at the same time. Nightbot is a total dork bot. Never mind the app doesn't have enough bandwidth to stream a trickle of water.

How bad of a design can it be? Sure, it does it's job-streaming, but in everything else it lacks. You can't decide if you want it to keep playing after you close the screen or exit to homescreen. If you're on full screen mode you can't swipe to go back, it's only by pressing a button. You can't see how long the stream is going and a lot more design flaws that attracts all the hate towards this app. And we're not talking about adding 3rd part emotes.

3 stars because it does everything it's supposed to BUT on mobile I am constantly putting streams on the highest graphics setting. Then a few minutes later it will buffer and the quality will drop down horribly. It's not my device cause other streaming apps I use have no issue at all. I've had this issue for months even though I'm constantly updating the app. Will raise to 5 if the issue is ever fixed

Overall a good app only complaint is there isn't a way to change the playback speed. This is a major issue when for example you watch a Tyler1 stream, he stream for 10 hours plus a day, I don't think anyone with any semblance of a life could watch at 1x speed. So, I use their website which does have playback speed setting so instead of 10 hours now its 5. In conclusion, it's 2021 please for the love of God add a playback setting. Other then that no complaints except ads are a bit excessive.

Dont believe a single person who says they have zero connection issues cause this app has issues for everyone. The app is also months behind the site in updates to accessibility and redemption changes and such; half the community things aren't even available on the mobile app and moderating someone's channel from the app is basically impossible. Just use your computer. Hell, console has better access.

1. The video stream is always 5-20 seconds behind. Chat is real-time. Easy to see if you have the same stream running on the Android app next to a PC streaming from Twitch's website. There is no "low latency" option in the app, and it also doesn't work if streaming using Chrome on an Android device. I think this might be more of an Android issue than the app, but it's still annoying. 2. If you load a Twitch gift card to use for subs or bits, you cannot redeem on the app. You must go through Google Play Store for payments, which are most expensive.

The app as of late has become terrible performance wise. If you ever minimize it into the mini video player and do literally anything, the video player becomes uninteractable and memory intensive, and requires completely killing the app to remove it. Likewise, the app still constantly disconnects you from chat, requiring a full restart of the app to reconnect.

So far, this app has not impressed me much, kinda like Discord, with no intuitive directions on how to do anything but go in endless circles with no definitive direction. In that respect, it's EXACTLY like Discord. Would be amazing if someone would create a way to watch, share and interact with clear, concise instructions. And I realize they're making a mint of the quasi-sexual content of half naked chicks wearing cat ears slurping all over rubber ear shaped microphones, but ENOUGH ALREADY!

It's alright as an app but the VOD interface is just dreadful. Trying to change video quality will cause the whole VOD to reload, it will often bug out and not show comments, if you accidentally touch the screen with even as much as a light feather it will change the time of the VOD or cause it to crash and reload. The way ads are integrated into VODs is also really bad.

"Unexpected error" pops up on android even after clearing app cache and data. Also doing "Just Chat" with my audience from an Ipad works for the most part except pressing the record button never does anything until you back out with Home button and click the app again. Not a big gripe tho. I would enjoy this app a lot more if viewers could read your video descriptions. Honestly, why even give us the option to write one if thats the case? Otherwise, EXCELLENT app. Absolutely one of a kind!!

A really solid application with a few bits that could be tweaked. Whispers aren't easy to get to, for example. Otherwise it's a really good application, I love being able to watch streams in the pop up player mode, so I'm not tied into the Twitch app solely.

I really depend on this app as a regular broadcaster on PlayStation. This app lets me keep my eyes on my game while keeping my community chat organized on the app. For what this app does offer, it is a good beginning for what should be a better-to-come future. I can only give this app four stars. There are bugs that require restarting the app which resets the broadcast chat on me and causes unnecessary interruptions to my broadcasts. twitch.tv/ToneEtainment

So when i open any link through a streamer's bio and after then i return back to the app, it just shows nothing, when i browse through their bio, schedule, video, it just appear to be blank. So every other time I've to relaunch the app itself. Very frustrating. Please provide an update regarding the same.

will not let me create account. I've done the process of creating an account several times. and a loading screen will take up the screen and not enter any of the info I give it. not only that. but it's not letting me use the account I've had for years. this app is broken :(

Awful. For about 2 months now, I can't watch a stream or VOD for more than 7 seconds without it buffering, but I can go on thr browser app and have a seamless experience, but if you want to chat or do anything at all besides watch, you're forced to open the app that doesn't even work. I've searched for answers and come up empty every time. And no, it's not my data connection. Wifi or data, doesn't work. Simply bad.

Just a week ago I was watching streams with minimum delay. About 3 seconds or almost instant. And now delays are up to 15-20 seconds. Fix it. And don't point out on people's back internet or low devices. 100:100 symmetric speed with 1:1 connection and 0-2 ping. Bandwith is almost free. Fix. It.

The fact that if I open anther app, answer the phone, or do anything when using the app it disconnected from the chat so I have to exit the stream and go back to reconnect. This deletes the conversation and if I'm unsubbed I have to re-watch ads again. Also the app does not like using a wireless keyboard when I'm on a tablet. It doesn't allow typing it closes the text box.

Can't connect on the website while on mobile, but the app is unintuitive and buggy. I don't need to close all my other apps to prevent youtube to crash, but Twitch does! I only installed it to get drop rewards from Warframe and even then, last week I couldn't redeem it because the connection is broken on Twitch side.

If you love watching repepitive adverts constantly like every 15 mins for sometimes over 3mins, then this is the app for you! Not to mention that the buffering freezing constantly when watching a stream at either higher or medium quality but funnily enough when the ads come on it never buffers!

It's been so Buggy. Everytime I minimize my app it just zoom into the stream and then when I maximize it zooms out. I randomly disconnects from the chat then I have to refresh the stream, forcing me to watch more ads. If you are gonna force other apps to shut down atleast make it so that your own app is usable.

The channels I follow are hard to find or require lots of scrolling to get to when I open the app. The app keeps suggesting videos I partially watched weeks ago above a video I pause earlier in the day. Their timing with the free Prime sub doesn't work so that I have to go through the browser for twitch to realize my sub is available and then it takes time for the app to realize I am subscribed to channels. I don't see this app as user friendly.

It's a good platform but there is way too many ads. 18 minutes through a stream and there was like 8 ads and they kept getting longer and longer and longer etc... Otherwise, it's a great platform to stream on and watch streams but if anything, there needs to be less ads and shorter ads.

Excellent work 👍, very great latest update and very smooth, nothing to complain about, only reason why I gave 4 stars is because a real time followers counter would be greater, example instead of saying 2.1K etc, it should show 2,153 if you know what I mean or make an option where you be able to see them in real time, thank you and keep up the great work , PS i meant like an insight tab or analytics to see what's going on in channel

Clipping doesn't work when casting to a Chromecast. /Announce doesn't work. Modding is painful. Many animated emotes don't work properly. Switching out of the app then back in completely breaks chat. Reporting users appears to report the whole chat from the text that's displayed. No in app way of providing feedback or bug reports. In app purchases are more expensive than using a browser, so why would you? For me it feels like the app is a side project and an afterthought.

I enjoy the site and the personalities on it, but the app is terrible. Instead of fixing the auto-rotate functions, the fullscreen mode that never has the right aspect ratio of your phone, the chat-to-video ratios that break whenever you rotate your phone by a milimeter, the mini-player that often breaks and becomes smaller than it should with 7 different icons shoved into it so you can't press what you wanna press, or the broken polls/point-system and squad stream overall— they put in more ads.

Works when it wants to, super delayed in what it shows even when connected to wifi, and the Cost/Bit is absolutely horrible. $100 for 5550 bits ($0.018/bit) whereas watching via site it's $64.40 for 5000 bits ($0.01288). This is horrible. On website, you can get 50 more bits for a total of $73. $27 cheaper and get slightly more. Fix this discrepancy. There's no reason for it.

I understand the need for ads and it does good for the content creators....but why do you have to plant a 30 sec ad seconds after I click on a channel!!? Then another 45 sec of ads within 3 minutes of watching? Let me watch for a few minutes and maybe I'll sub to them, but this literally makes me exit everytime. Counter-productive

Great app. I just dislike ads. They don't make me want products, and are rarely helpful in any way. I just want to watch gamers play games without having to turn the volume down for an ad that is at 2 or 3 levels higher than the streamers I watch. At least give the option to skip a few seconds in. And adjust volume to match the audio level of the stream. Please.

Very glitchy, but good when it works. Ads freak out and partially load sometimes, then they freeze and you have to reopen the stream. Sometimes chat takes forever to connect even though the video is playing fine. Just buggy in general.

App works very badly on Nintendo Switch and Android 11. On Switch, there are very few options, functions and buttons. Also stops stream after every(!) set of adverts. On Android 11, the stream goes into buffering every 5 seconds (literally), even on 720p. Yes I had Switch and Android 11 versions fully updated. The only platform on which it does work good is in Firefox browser on Windows 10 and on Android 10. Why are they so bad? Please fix...

Every time I leave a stream to listen, I am disconnected and can't reconnect unless I close/open stream whereas in the past, it automatically reconnected. Creating clips is also super slow in mobile. Please fix above in a future update. This is pretty detrimental to the Twitch mobile experience.

Why does it have audio delay???? Galaxy Buds Plus with S22U, enough audio delay for it to be noticable. Why? It ruins the experience massively. Sometimes it decides to not have any, i leave the app and reenter then it has a insane amount of it to where its over a second behind or ahead in terms of audio.

Recent update on the Amazon fire stick makes the app borderline unusable. It doesn't show me my followed channels: I have to search for them; it's cluttered with ads for other channels instead. Ffwd through a video is one of the worst interfaces I've ever seen, jerking around, moving far and then short unevenly. When I accidentally navigated away, it reset from the beginning. Whoever made these changes deserves to have to struggle against them for all eternity as penitence until it's rectified.

Twitch is Twitch, and this is that. But the app is bad. Almost never remembers where I am at when watching VODs if I don't watch the whole thing in one. Live chat freezes and doesn't update by itself. The app bugs out if I cast while my phone is landscape. If I pause a video to go get a drink or something it times out, which is a probem because it doesn't remember where I'm at in the video.

I'm happy to have a mobile app, but there are two BIG problems I have when I go live. 1) It randomly stops broadcasting. 2) When I restart the stream, frequently it will transmit audio but just display a frozen inage. And I have no way of knowing unless a live viewer tells me or I go back and watch the recording after the broadcast. I've now recorded several hours of worthless footage due to this bug.

BUGS: Mini player issues are still lingering. The video becomes zoomed out, becoming tiny, often caused from minimizing the video and then backing out of the app, then opening it again. It seems to happen because the app believes the minimized video is the standard video---I have seen regular video option on it. Occasionally, the app will split in two, with a black area for the top half, and scrolling only affects the bottom half.

I'm fully convinced the developers at Twitch have stopped testing this app, because so many core features have been consistently broken for at least a year. Raids always land you on a freeze frame, creating a clip takes five eternities, chat disconnects at random, channel points rewards are randomly "out of stock", streams sometimes continue playing audio in the background without floating video, everything's in shambles. I'm surprised it can play streams at all.

3/30/22 : With the most recent update to the app, a lot of things got messed up or went missing - like the ability to cast a vote on a stream, chat desync is worse than before, chat can't decide which way to peform, woth the arrow like before, or with the keyboard "send" button, and often the chat entered will not appear until you tap into the chat box again after sending...among other issues.

Twitch, I need you to notify on time when a streamer I go out of my way to follow to be notified when they stream, is streaming! This happens every time and it's absolutely awful. I will get notified, 30min, an hour, etc, when it should be on time. And do not address this as a phone issue, because I recently broke my phone (has nothing to do with the notification problem mind you), I had it replaced and I still get notifications late on my new phone. I'm not the only person who has this problem.

I loved this app until recently. Before, if I closed it without actually shutting it down, I could jump right back into chat without missing a beat. There was the occasional error but I was ok with that. Now it disconnects me from chat and I need to close out the stream before I'm allowed to post or even read any messages. It's to the point where as soon as I find a reasonable substitute for it, I'm done with this app.

Please add an option for the leveling of ad audio or make it a standard. I understand that ads are a part of the non subscription experience but when half of the ads are incredibly loud in comparison to the stream and other ads(which are about same vol as stream) it causes issue with my ability to use the app. I have got migraines from the playing of these specific ads(green apple phone ad as example) and just want to be able to set them to be a volume before they appear to avoid this happening.

Since we're heading in the right direction for mobile streaming anyways, a couple of suggestions: the ability to download and export streams from your phone, and the ability to raid and host other channels from your phone. Please, and thank you. Edit: please also add 'starting soon' and 'ending soon' placeholders to the bubble, like how you have 'be right back'.

I'm perfectly fine with getting ads, but when I get ads in the middle of rewatching a Twitch stream and then after it puts me back at the beginning of the video, I'm going to be a little peeved. Don't know if this is a bug or not, but it makes me mad, cause not only do I have to click to the part I was at, sometimes I don't know where I was at so i have to refind my place. Please fix.

This app has always been quite bad. Navigating was terrible and half the time it never remembers where I am, and it requires effort to to and see vods. But the latest update now shows blank pages and has to be restarted to be able to play anything. Also once it is playing, while the video keeps playing I lose the ability to open the video to move forward or back in the video or to see how long is left. (At least when casting).

When watching a video from a streamer, if i close the app and come back after a while to continue watching, the video resets back to 00:00. Sometimes it works and continues at the part that I stopped watching the last time but now it almost never happens. also there are way too many ads when watching a streamer' video. An ad every literally 5 minutes doesn't feel right.

I'd like to see more emphasis on clips; it's how creators grab viewer attention. Today's viewer has a 7 second attention span, so the default should be "all time" clips. Current set up is default videos, then swipe tabs to click on clips. If there haven't been any clips in past 24 hours, the default makes it appear that there are no clips. Viewer has to change it to "all time" to see more. Most viewers won't take the time to look for that if they're just scrolling through, quickly.

I can't use this app... When i want to watch my friends stream and i have to use my data plan, the app forces the highest quality and the result is 3 seconds of stream followed by 5 seconds of loading. Only when I have access to wifi will it act somewhat proper. I miss mixer... At least with that streaming service it would auto adjust your quality to match your connection. Twitch is a waste of space on my phone... Lets not forget the ad breaks that stack 8 ads on you like they're primetime tv...

It's an app. Can't use a browser on mobile so stuck with it, and it works as most modern apps do so halfway to functional. If I could use Browser this would be 1 star, but I cannot so without a functional viewing experience to compare this jumps all the way to 3 stars, clever ;) It's horrible, costs more, can't always see VOD chat, and we are all worse off for using it. But! It does play video and sound 👍 We are all doomed.

It's pretty good as far as streaming apps go. I like that you can watch videos even after they have been streamed. It would be five stars, but the playback with the screen off is hit or miss at best. I like to listen to the streams as I work, and it's not practical to keep the screen on constantly. It skips around as the screen turns on or off, and when the phone is unlocked. Sometimes the audio just stops completely after turning the screen off, which is frustrating.

App is good but is way too limited in uses for creators. It would be convenient not to have to go onto my PC to edit all of the important things for my channel and instead use this app to make adjustments. It only makes sense to have the ability to optimize things across all platforms.

Loses your place in vods all the time. Doesn't matter how you pause your video, it forgets where you were 60% of the time. Also, when watching a VOD, the UI shifts up just before you tap the pause/play button, causing you to instead click a random point in the video timeline. Designed pretty, but not much thought was put into user experience.

This app has been borderline broken for a long time now and it's tiring. Between still playing videos even after you "close" the app, inconsistent VOD loading, and the ever increasing number of ads, it's not worth your time anymore. Issues are consistent and cross-platform to iOS as well.

Would give a 5 star, but every time one thing gets fixed, something else breaks. Finally able to use follower only emotes again, but I can't redeem sounds alerts unless they are free and not on subscriber only, even though I have bits and I'm subscribed to the streamer. Everything works just fine when I open streams up on Chrome instead of the app. Please fix this without breaking something else

The most money greedy platform on earth. You don't pay for no ads throughout the entire app, it's for each individual channel. And if you aren't subscribed, most the time you have to watch 8 - 9 entire ads before watching again. And that's live, so you missed whatever was in that 5 minutes you were gone watching ads.

This app barely works. My phone overheats and lags whenever Twitch is running. Stream audio is super choppy. Also I should be able to close the app without swiping the video first. There's no way to pause streams or rewind streams. Creators get banned for no apparent reason all the time. Garbage app. Garbage platform. I can't wait for it to die.

I love his app, even though it has its faults. Sometimes, while streaming, the app just ends the broadcast. When this happens, I have to completely close the app and reset up the stream, or else I will be streaming a still image and the audio will continue. I would like a way to add my own scenes/overlays to the app to use while streaming. So I could use the same overlay that I use wile streaming on pc. I am happy with the recent update, giving me a preview window while streaming.

Recently chat field has disappeared and can only chat by opening emotes. If I minimize the app to go to another app, the chat function breaks/disconnects and the whole app needs to be restarted. So many ads and often forced... always right at an intense or important spot in a streamers game, etc. 9 ads back to back sucks. I can only subscribe to so many streamers. Ads should only be streamer controlled and always minimize the stream to small window so we can still watch through the ad.

Worst optimized app I've ever used, period. Chat replays on VODs only work correctly 40% of the time. If you go back to watch a VOD of a stream you didn't finish it'll start the stream over from the beginning even though it shows exactly where you left off on the 'continue watching' section. The app hard crashes at least once every two weeks, and soft crashes even more frequently that require a full phone restart because I can't close the app. And that's just what I could fit in 500 characters.

This app should be 3 separate apps. One for streaming, one for viewers, and one for creator's dashboard. The new update is broken. Literally have to exit the app every 5 minutes in order to be able to type in a chat or scroll down a channel's "about" page. I uninstall then reinstall the app several times a day just in order to use the basic function of connecting to a chat room or being able to type. It's 2022 and there's still up to a 2 minute delay sometimes while watching streams... what?

Has a weird glitch where the video will just stop while the audio keeps going. Sometimes restarting the app completely by force stopping it and restarting will fix it but you have to do it multiple times and I just tried doing it 5 times for a stream I was watching and it did nothing. I hope they fix it soon because the rest of the app works pretty well but I have a hard time rating a streaming app highly when there is a common glitch that won't let me watch streams.

The latest update has made the app garbage. It was fine beforehand, but now I have to uninstall it and reinstall it, or force stop it, or clear the data to get it to work again. When you exit the app and go back, the whole app will be black, except for a few words. If you type in chat after pressing enter, you need to press on the chat bar again for it to go into chat. Also, sometimes, streamers' video resolution randomly changes if you leave their stream and then come back. Fix this.

Way too many ads when you're trying to watch. Also, I had to delete the app after only a day because of how many push notifications I received. I received 10 notifications for streams I didn't follow in under 8 minutes. That is far too many; there is no easy way to turn them off. Lags quite a bit while watching a stream. Overall incredibly inferior to the desktop site.

Recent updates have made the app buggy as all get out. The mini player in particular has a ton of problems. The whole layout breaks for seemingly no reason all the time.

App is just hot garbage. It is always either glitching or totally freezing up your entire phone. I say "I fkn hate Twitch" literally about 10x a day. And if you want to watch some older cataloged vids, good luck. You have to scroll through hundreds of pages, then once you start a vid the app randomly crashes and you have to start all over again. Probably the most frustrating app I have ever used. Somehow the ads always seems to work perfect though!

What even happened to this app. I know it was bad but it somehow got so much worse to the point where it's unbearable. Using the miniplayer breaks all functionality of its size and resolution, as well as the app's ui all around, making it a really buggy mess. Your latest bug fixes did nothing but the opposite.

EDIT: Still constantly having issues with mobile twitch streaming. About 3/4 of the time audio is missing, or the screen is black or paused, or the stream playback only recorded 10 mins of a 3 hours stream. What a waste of time. Also the thing to test your audio before streaming doesn't even work. Twitch mobile is garbage for streaming. Even with great wifi my live stream quality looks like trash,and it's constantly ending my brodcast despite a stable connection. Super frustrating.

Ads have no way to skip, they are also eather 15 or 30 sec. They always play the same ads. The video will play in-between the ads. The video will just not play and be stuck on the first frame. But if you look over all of this the app is good, if the creates fix some to most of these problem then I would probably change my rating to 5 stars.

Mobile app is garbage. Like whatever team handles mobile application development is trash. Horribly optimized. I can't watch a clip that my friend sent me. It opens the app then just loads on a black screen forever. When I watch it normally it runs ok but buffers every couple seconds on any wifi or mobile data. Twitch mobile application development team is garbage. Find a new team Twitch.

Twitch cannot, no matter how many apps I delete, no matter how many times I restart my phone, no matter what I try, load my friends stream. It can perfectly load every ad that comes up before it, so I know it's not my internet. However, as long as I really feel up to watching his stream, Twitch will decide the friend I'm in the same city in is actually at the bottom of the Bermuda Triangle, and cannot be loaded. No updates available, no fixes, not solutions. Just adds and a loading screen.

Works great but one issue I've ran into is in the clips section on a channel page. If the clip starts auto playing its preview and you click into the clip you will be stuck at a frozen screen. Clips only work if you tap them quick enough so that the audio free preview doesn't start. Frustrating as the clips auto play in the small view the minute you scroll to it. Making it impossible to use the clips page at all for me.

App only allows you to pause video when screen is rotated vertically. Exceedingly hard to search specific creators, or to even find creators you have subscribed to. Is an enormous resource hog. Wasn't intuitive to minimize chat box which was otherwise obnoxiously blocking entire screen. I can't think of anything I like about this app, except the single free membership offering if you're a prime member. Coulnt pause play from my air pods the way I can in any other app. Will uninstall.

This app is actual garbage. No video is ever watchable I can watch streams on literally any other streaming app. Hangs constantly and eventually just gives up and buffers indefinitely. Updates have never made it better only worse. You would think figuring out mobile would be important to a streaming company but apparently not switch since it's gotten worse

Have used this app for a long time, to monitor chat while I stream. As of then latest updates, chat disconnects me after just a few minutes and I have to restart the app to reconnect, just for it to happen again in a few minutes. Idk what's up, but my rating won't improve until this fix goes through. Pixel 2XL, Android 11.

I'm finding the app difficult to work with and there aren't many options and other helpful shortcuts to accessibility. Evertime I went live there where no stream videos in my channel. Plus the automatic clip editor doesn't work so well either. Update: I noticed that everytime i go live my twitch doesnt save any of my broadcasts or clips any of it either when it should be. The clips it does save are only 30 seconds long and are un-editable.

The app is wonderful, I can watch my favorite streamers at any given time, stream my self, and so much more. BUT- whenever I am watching a stream, right in the beginning pre-middle, middle, post-middle, and end, there's ads. Even double, triple, and quadruple ads! Even more ads pop up to! I hope you try and fix this- I don't even know. Please just fix it. The ads are a problem for ALL of us, no matter how much we love it, the ads just have GOT to go. Other than that, enjoy your day/night!

I had a horrible experience with the app and the customer service. The app doesn't work almost at all. The keyboard to type on mobile pops up randomly and even dissappear all together as soon as u click the search bar. I couldn't verify my phone number because the apps keyboard would pop up and go away so I couldn't even enter anything. I brought this up to customer service and they basically told me im out of luck and closed the case without helping me with anything. They dont care about u

If I wasn't epileptic, I'd watch twitch on my computer. But, unfortunately, I'm stuck to the small screen of my phone for long videos. The app has progressively gotten worse & worse. It's not an internet issue. I have to frequently back in & out in order to fix things like: -Live stream buffering. A single buffer will last over an hour. -The bar at the bottom when an ad plays doesn't go away. -Stream/VOD buffers and continues, but the screen is frozen. - Many others I can't fit here.

Twitch is awesome. Love twitch but if I'm rating the app... it's insanely buggy. If you close twitch and open another app the pop up window has a LOT of bugs. When adds play the "this add supports the streamer" won't go away occasionally. I have to close and open the app frequently at work when Im just trying to listen and Glace at a steam. But again I love twitch and I'll put up with the bugs till they're fixed. Also I have a note 20 ultra not and old phone

I love it so far, I just kinda wish you were able to edit your account to save your streams from the app. It would be a little more convenient for those who want to start streaming, I also want to add that the "connections" menu in settings only has amazon and nothing else, not Xbox or Playstation, or even steam. I just find it frustrating that I can't connect my Twitch account to what gaming platform I want for streaming and that's difficult to do without the option to do it from phone

I've unfortunately been using this app for years. It's the only place that the creators I like stream their content. It's almost like twitch is constantly trying to prove it's the worst and most annoying app possible. And with only a few notable exceptions to competition as far as streaming platforms go, you just have to sit there and endure how terrible the app is or miss out completely on the content that you're interested in.

This app is literal garbage. After 5 different email verifications, and 6 attempts at trying to log on, all the stupid app wants to do is load. Not to mention the stream I was watching was having drops, and I didn't get a single one of them because of this trash app. Optimize your garbage or don't even have it as an app. There's absolutely no reason I should be taking this long and getting this frustrated trying to simply log into an app. 0/10 would never recommend in current state.

So glitchy! Especially (though not exclusively) when playing picture-in-picture. It seems to be getting worse over time. VOD chat sometimes doesn't display; in PiP, video playback sometimes stops, though audio continues, and when I return to the app the video player is just the freeze-frame from PiP on a black background, which can only be resolved by closing the app and opening it again (thereby having to sit through another ad); etc. I have two other Twitch clients installed as well (Impulse from the Play Store and Xtra, which you have to download as an apk and install manually -- I got it from APKPure), and even with Twitch's attempts to nerf unofficial apps (Xtra gets more frequent ads, and Impulse's ad blocker sometimes triggers a "please switch to a player without adblock" message from Twitch that blocks the video), I've found them to be more reliable and overall usable than this official one.
