Current Twitch Desktop App version. This version has more than addons management : voice&video communication, chat, game overlay, twitch integration, ...
Livestream playback, including fullscreen view, browsing, chat.
What does not
Minimize to tray doesn't work so the user need to exit with Ctrl+Q or change the setting to exist when closing the window instead of minimizing.
Empty tray icon, can't open tray menu.
I do use i3wm with Polybar so the tray issues might be specific with my setup.
Keyboard hotkeys don't work when the video is in fullscreen.
What was not tested
Games, Mods (plugins).
Scrolling is not very smooth.
I've tested the app with the (beta) Flatpak Lutris package and the vanilla 5.4 runner (non patched) in a 64bit prefix, and not with the Arch Linux distributed Wine build
Zero workarounds needed.

This application currently needs dotnet40 to be installable. Install with winetricks :
winetricks -q dotnet40
If you need the "My Games" tab, dotnet40 is not enough, but dotnet46 works :
winetricks -q dotnet46
Note that both versions are mutually exclusive, so you should probably install dotnet46.
