Twitch chat for android app is very buggy

I’ve downloaded the twitch app for my nexus 7 to look at chat while I stream. It seems that it randomly stops working, the chat just starts being dead and I check the chat on my computer and it’s still going. The app gives no warning that I’ve been disconnected from chat. Also, is there any way to pause the stream and just look at chat? It seems that the stream runs the whole time when I just have chat in fullscreen and it totally eats my battery.

This forum is meant for developers integrating their applications with Twitch. You might be better off seeking assistance at, which has numerous support topics and a way to contact support for issues you are facing.

If you are just trying to send suggestions, I think Twitch accepts emails to feedback [at] twitch [dot] tv for suggestions.
