Twitch’s biggest yet emote update introduces a new tier of emotes, Follower Emotes.
As an incentive for following a channel, users will gain access to 5 emotes from the new tier. Follower Emotes can only be used on the channel in which they are unlocked.
Regardless, using these emotes within a channel will still add value. It’s a free benefit for following and provides 5 extra emote slots to all channels.
What Emotes Can I Add To This Tier
You can add any existing channel emotes to this tier. Additionally, you can also upload new emotes. In other words, this allows Affiliates to have up to 12 emotes on their channel.
How Can I Add Follower Emotes
Currently, this feature is in beta. It’s available to select Partners and Affiliates. Twitch is now collecting feedback on this feature.
When Will It Be Available To Partners And Affiliates
Twitch plans to begin rolling out Follower Emotes to all channels later in 2021.
What Should I Do To Be Ready For This
Twitch Affiliates can currently upload a maximum of 5 emotes to Tier 1, 1 emote to Tier 2, and 1 emote to Tier 3 – a total of 7. With the introduction of Follower Emotes, Affiliates will be able to upload a total of 12 emotes.
As a result, Twitch Affiliates can provide more emotes. A feature that otherwise would require them to be a Twitch Partner. Affiliates should take full advantage of this and provide more emotes for their community to use.
Contact your artist to create more emotes. Alternatively, you can find a new artist to commission emotes for your channel. Any extra emotes that you have can be used on Discord or added to BTTV.
And once Follower Emotes are available globally, you’ll be ready to make use of the new tier immediately!
