Search for more than a channel.
The ability to search on a more global level, like Stream titles and game titles. Right now when you search on the homepage it is only by the channel (user) name. The ability to have it filter the game and stream title would be nice.
With Microsoft accounts becoming the recommended login method, usernames are going to be even less meaningful than they are now, so a proper stream title search would be immensely useful.
searching based on title would be handy.
Sometime users put their country or language in these, so for a streamer to put something identifiable in it, someone can search for these keywords

My primary need is game search on Android since not all games are listed in the un-ordered list. But yes. the search should work like a search, and not like the current stream filter inaccurately named "search". Having a filter for streams would also be a nice idea, rather easy to implement as well, just rename what you currently call "search". The ability to sort the game list by;Name, viewer, streamer, and maybe "first seen or something to make it easy to find new releases. Sorting the streams by name,views,streamed time, would also be nice.
Honestly we don't really need a channel (user) search as much as we need a proper game search because if you knew the streamers channel name, you wouldn't need to search for it! Also with the lack of a proper game search, if you happen to be the only one streaming a specific title, that title may not even show up on the side games bar sometimes leaving you invisible to anybody searching for that game being streamed. Please fix Beam!
