  • (2023-07-29) Enzotiso: Great, I wish there was a refresh button though for when the extension doesn't manually update
  • (2023-07-28) DFero13: I can customize which Streamers Livestream gets tracked and it notifies me. Exactly what i wanted for years. Additionally i can turn manually the Notifications on and off for specific Streamers too. And it actually works.
  • (2023-05-05) Adriano_Adriano: João. Tem como fazer um sistema que abra uma aba quando uma live iniciar?
  • (2023-05-03) Marek Rz: finally working extension for Twitch streams notification
  • (2023-01-25) Galo: It would be nice if instead of the notifications there was just a sound or if it could have both options.
  • (2023-01-24) Gloria Liu: An almost perfect extension. However, it sometimes doesn't automatically update for several days, making me miss streams. A manual refresh button would be very nice.
  • (2022-12-25) José Bezerra Corridas: E Uma Boa extensão para a Twitch para quem não quer Perde nada das lives que você acompanha, Nessa Extensão indo em Options tem boas Opções que não ver em outras extensões! Isso Tudo na Parte de Options da extensão! - Se tiver Selecionado Add your Twitch list of streamers to NowStreaming e Colocar seu Nick na Twitch ou qualquer Outro Nick, Pode colocar varias contas e ver quem esta on na sua conta e nas contas dos outros ao mesmo Tempo. - mais se tiver marcado Replace your NowStreaming list with your Twitch list, só vai poder Ver a de 1 conta só quem esta on. - Na parte Manage following list pode ver a lista toda com stramer, Status se esta on ou não, Unfollow caso queira para de seguir o canal, Notifications caso não queira que notifique aquele canal Pode usar o tema Escuro na Extensão OBS: Caso esteja selecionado o Add your Twitch list of streamers to NowStreaming adionado com varias contas ai Aparece todos os canais das contas que você adicionou) Isso na Parte Stream List aparece o nome do streamer, Game Jogado, Viewers (quantas pessoas estão on agora) e o (Uptime) Tempo de Live
  • (2022-12-10) Николай Гуголь: Расширение на голубом глазу сообщает: "Twitch now requires every user to authenticate! To continue using NowStreaming, you will need to authenticate with your Twitch Account." И это в то время, когда похожее расширение Twitch Stream Notifier для показа уведомлений требует только ник стримера, и НИЧЕГО больше! Вот это рокет саенс! Наверное, второе расширение сам Илон Маск кодил (сарказм).
  • (2022-11-18) Fabricio S. Alves (FSA): Já testei outras, mas sempre volto a esta. É simples, funciona bem e tem sido atualizada. Obrigado Joao.sh pelo seu trabalho!
  • (2022-11-02) Domi: would be better if it shows streamers profile pic instead of game logo
  • (2022-10-29) Konnor Rodgers: Previously had trouble with the extension updating (I use Chrome), but shortly after making a review saying that, it seems to have fixed itself now ?. Love the app, works great for me now.
  • (2022-10-25) Espen “essi2” Hansen Amdal: Excellent extension, but having issues with it not updating the list automatically(Using Edge). Importing the follow list manually to update is a to put it mildly inelegant workaround
  • (2022-10-13) Sammich: This extension is very useful, just not as of late. It doesn't seem to be working right now, as it never updates. It will get stuck and say a streamer has been live for 60 hours and counting, and only fixes itself when I remove and re-add them. Then, it says that no one is streaming for over a week, but when I check twitch, I see I've missed many streams (I don't bother keeping regular notifications on for them ever since I got this)
  • (2022-10-10) Doomsmoker: Excellent! Notifications are working great, unlike native from twitch.
  • (2022-08-13) Димс Плющев: Лучшее приложение из подобных и главное что работающее безотказно!
  • (2022-08-11) Max Ryan: It seems to have trouble updating the list of who's live lately. Like I'll notice that the number hasn't changed in a while, and it might be extra obvious like "I know there's no way only 2 streamers I follow are live in the middle of the day." If I go to the options tab and re-enter my twitch name to import my follow list again, then the live list actually updates.
  • (2022-05-23) Michael Mastrandrea: People are understandably upset about the extensions tab permissions, thus resulting in its removal in v3.3. However, the lack of an immediate follow/unfollow button is really annoying for me. Is there a way to include the function for those that allow tab permissions, and just remove it when permissions are denied? Or is there perhaps a fork of the project?
  • (2022-05-22) w00t3r: Great extension. But today it stopped working on the basis that it wants to read browsing history. I will never allow that.
  • (2022-04-08) benjamin957957: Would love for "import from Twitch" to update follow list and not reset all preferences for disabled/enabled notifications for specific streamers. Regardless, this extension has everything I need, just this one thing is needed for future use of the extension.
  • (2022-03-21) GenerallyTyler: It works well enough. I wish it notified of live streams better. As it is I have to check the list manually now and then.
  • (2022-03-06) Saily Hableet: Единственное рабочее приложение на данный момент, моё уважение разработчику :)
  • (2022-03-02) Katie Willems: Really like being able to sort by uptime
  • (2022-03-02) Gary Kimmelman: Currently the only Twitch "live" extension that actually works since the Twitch API updates on 28/02/22. I was previous using the extension Twitch Live which has since stopped working. Thanks for continuing to maintain and update your extension.
  • (2022-03-02) Equandor: The authentication with twitch link is super sketchy. A window without any descriptions appears, with your account logged out. A user can't possibly know if it is real twitch login page and not a fake one to collect your password.
  • (2022-02-19) Fabricio S. Alves: Hoje, 19/02/2022 voltei a testar a extensão e está funcionando (Chrome). Aparentemente devido a atualização de 10/02/2022. Mas tenho uma nova questão. Porque pedir login com a conta da Twitch se outra extensão, como Twitch Live, consegue funcionar sem login, mesmo que sua ultima atualização tenha sido em 2020? Não sei se vou continuar a utilizar essa extensão por muito tempo depois de retirarem o modo anônimo.
  • (2022-01-09) 郭小武: The browser(Microsoft Edge v96.0.1054.62) crashed when I clicked "Authenticate with Twitch". It used to be worked before the last update.
  • (2022-01-03) Tobias Rumiz: The new login window seems a lil bit sketchy. Changed myself to "Notifications for Twitch" which is almost exactly the same app as this one used to be but without the "Authenticate" button.
  • (2021-12-28) Petr B: Stopped working after the last update (27/12/21). Now you need a Twitch account to see live channels.
  • (2021-09-11) Rubysama Chisuru: Noice
  • (2021-07-12) yzzy: awesome! it helps me sooooo much
  • (2021-06-07) Luciano Nieva: Esta epico no digo mas
  • (2020-11-03) FourthWig: umm i dont understand how this works... i typed in fresh and it still said im not following anybody and i dont know how to watch streams, pls help me
  • (2020-10-28) Kristin A: Very awesome in terms of functionality, though it can use a neater display.
  • (2020-10-19) Such a useful addon, has never stopped working when others fell by the wayside. The only thing I would like to see is the option to add an audible alert to the pop-up.
  • (2020-09-06) Ella Threlfall: does what it says it will, but i wish it displayed the game as text rather than an icon because the vast majority of games have no icon! edit: additionally, when you change the sorting method, it reverts back to the default when you open the extension again. the default sorting method is by viewer numbers, which i personally find to be way less useful than sorting alphabetically by name or game, since i usually am either looking for specific channels or specific games.
  • (2020-08-18) Onur B: Works well. I didn't see anyproblems yet.
  • (2020-08-15) Evandro Ferreira: Nice
  • (2020-08-10) Esteban Ssc: esta super bien, solo que yo cambiaria un poco la interfaz y quitaria el cudro de Opciones, es un poco incomodo, pero todo lo demas esta super bien!
  • (2020-02-23) nguyen phongquang: rat vui
  • (2019-11-14) Violet-n-red: has notifications, can sort by stream duration. good stuff, only wish notifications had sound.
  • (2019-05-22) Gary Wong: Nice, its exactly what I'm looking for
  • (2019-03-31) OLY ARTI: Расширение лучшее среди подобных! Особенно уникально - показывает время с начала стрима. Давно искал такое расширение. Ошибок не обнаружено. Есть пожелание - добавить возможность сортировки списка онлайн стримеров: по игре, по количеству зрителей, по времени стрима. UPD. Данная функция добавлена. Спасибо! :)
  • (2019-03-16) Nick Cade: Can we please have an option to order the list by current views and not alphabetically?
  • (2019-03-07) how did work
  • (2019-03-03) Paul Wright: Great extension for when you follow hundreds of streamers. you can add your favorites to filter. BTW Twitch.tv/Duhakalock
  • (2018-07-31) Jonathan h: This is awesome. Thanks
  • (2018-05-30) ToniTee: Works well. Need auto sync and the game names instead of icons tho. Showing the uptime of a stream is really cool. Nice job.
  • (2018-04-21) Mia Junsei: Really helpful
  • (2014-12-27) Ian Hogg: Everything I could ask for

Latest issues

  • (2023-09-14, v:3.3) João Soares: Changes to "Import From Twitch"
    Due to recent API changes on Twitch's side, NowStreaming has been updated with some changes to the Import From Twitch button. From now on this function will only be able to read and import your own user's followed channels. It will not be possible to import the list of other user's followed channels. For 99% of users, this will not be a significant change. You will need to disconnect from twitch (in the Options menu) and re-authenticate for these changes to take effect
  • (2022-11-01, v:3.3) Bruno Palmieri: Show Title
    Hi, is there a way to show the title the streamer put in their stream? it will be good, because some streamer put in the title when it is a Rerun, so we can see it befor click in the strem, thx
  • (2022-08-05, v:3.3) Mannix MD: New notification upon category change
    Hi would it be possible to add an option to send new notification every time a stream changes category?
  • (2022-02-19, v:3.1) Ol Skool: Trouble with authentication
    Had no problem before (using vivaldi), now pressing Authentic with Twitch does nothing. I see activity in my taskbar as if something wants to open but then it does not c reate any window and then it disappears. I dont have this problem in the mozilla version.
  • (2022-02-14, v:3.1) Nicholas Baldwin: Fails to authenticate
    Pressing the authenticate button does nothing, doesn't bring up an authentication window nor lets me connect my twitch account
  • (2022-02-14, v:3.1) Rightclick: Reruns are considered offline this should be optional
    I would still like a stream to appear in list of live streamers when the stream is showing a rerun. It should at least be an option. Now, it is considered offline.
  • (2022-01-15, v:3.1) Michael Mastrandrea: Was shown an incorrect profile icon
    I got a notification that CodeMiko was live but the profile pic I saw in the windows 10 desktop notification was that from Emmalangevin. Upon checking the respective channels, I confirmed that your chrome extension confused the two. Since both channels went live within a minute of each other, I suspect this is what caused the extension to switch the profile icon out for an incorrect one. I love this extension by the way, great work!
  • (2022-01-06, v:3.1) Njna “ᑎᒍᑎᗩ” Grimsdottir: Crashes Edge on clicking the "Authenticate with Twitch" button.
    Just kills the edge process, it doesn't even give an error or anything.
  • (2021-12-28, v:3.1) Redesignated Clockwork: id.twitch.tv permissions
    The 3.1 update seems to have automatically disabled the extension due to a new required permission, which is data reading/changing on id.twitch.tv; is there a reason it requires this new access?
  • (2021-12-28, v:3.0) João Soares: Attention to Edge users
    Microsoft Edge currently has a bug related to authentication with 3rd parties (e.g. Twitch) - https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/edge-stable-crashing-on-extension-function-chrome-identity/m-p/2904069
  • (2021-06-08, v:2.2) Aaron Salindong: Notifications
    Is it possible for this extension to affect mobile notifications from Twitch? I started using your app a couple days ago and since my mobile notifications haven't been coming through. I can't think of anything else that has changed.
  • (2021-05-08, v:2.2) Winter Kikki: Broken
    The extension does not open completely when you click on the icon, it used to work fine. Reinstallation didn't help
  • (2020-12-09, v:2.2) JD: YouTube Live Notifications?
    This is the best Twitch Notifier for Chrome. Would be great if it also supported notifications for YouTube Live Streams since some streamers have switched to YouTube.
  • (2020-04-03, v:2.1.2) Dom: Notifications not showing
    Good Afternoon, I've just downloaded your extension and added some stream to the list, but there are no notifications being shown to me. Please can you help?
  • (2019-07-07, v:2.1.0) Sujin: Sound wenn Streamer Online ist
    Es wäre schön wenn man eine Funktion einbauen kann wenn ein Streamer Online ist das sich ein Sound abspielt sobald die Push Nachricht kommt
  • (2019-06-17, v:2.1.0) Celina: broke over the weekend
    This extension broke over the weekend. It doesn't show who is online and all stream URLs link to the number they are in the streamer list (i.e. https://www.twitch.tv/0, https://www.twitch.tv/1, https://www.twitch.tv/2).
  • (2018-01-24, v:1.7.4) text instead of icons
    Please add option to show games as text instead of icons. Because it's a little bit annoying when you see many same icons when games are different.
