Allow Subscribers to use Follower Emotes in Any Channel
Currently, Follower Emotes can only be used in the channel they're for, while the user is followed to the channel. This means as a broadcaster, I have to decide between which emotes can't be used anywhere else, and which I can provide to followers to use in my channel without a subscription.
Ideally, it would be nice if subscribers to a channel would be able to use Follower Emotes anywhere on Twitch, as they currently use Subscriber Emotes. This would give an added benefit to subscribers, with additional emotes in other channels, while still allowing followers to use the selected Follower Emotes within your own channel, and no painful decision.
Thank you for your time!
It's really, really frustrating that I have to choose between making an emote accessible to more people and making it usable outside of my channel. Right now I have duplicates of some emotes with slightly different names as a workaround, but it looks really messy in the emote picker and confuses some of my viewers. I can't bring myself to delete the dupes, though, because I want to offer follower emotes but also have access to all my emotes in my friends' channels. :(
This. Ideally Follower Emotes could be used anywhere by anyone, but at least make it so Subscribers and the Broadcaster themselves can use those emotes anywhere. It sucks picking and choosing which emotes must stay on my channel only and not even be able to use them myself outside of my own stream. I want to show off the amazing art my chosen artist has done! And it could be a good way for followers to show some of their favorite streamers they follow but aren't subbed to in other streams without just saying "I like this streamer too!" Instead they just use their emotes and if anyone is curious they can trace it back to the channel it originated from.
I agree with this perspective. Because of the current limitation, I cannot use my own emotes in other people's streams.
Agreeing with this. Right now I've got 5 follower slots, 7 subscribe slots and 3 animated slots--but I don't want to "waste" expensive commissioned emotes on slots that both followers and subscribers can't use outside of my channel.
If absolutely nothing else, subscribers should absolutely be able to use them outside of the channel. It's a really silly function that otherwise serves no purpose and feels like a waste of commission money.
Streamers should be able to use their own follower emotes anywhere on Twitch. I understand not allowing viewers of the stream not being able to do so, but channel owners should be able to. We paid for the emote, why can we not use it in other channels when it's our own emote, from our own stream, that we paid for?
Just a thought, I hate that I cannot use some of my emotes on Twitch that are my very own because of the category they're in.
It's so dumb that we can't even use our own emotes outside of our streams. The whole point of emotes is to use them everywhere.
I agree - right now, I have my follower emotes as animated emotes so that my subs get an upgraded version and can use them across other channels.
At the very least, follower emotes should be usable by subs in other channels!!
Definitely agree! It seems super weird that subs (and the broadcaster themselves!) can't use these emotes outside of the origin channel. Seems like an overall loss of functionality for subscribers even though it's an improvement for followers.
Yea this should be allowed no doubt
yes, this please
I have some emotes that I want to use all over twitch. I can only use them on my channel because they are in the follower slot. I am all for allowing follower emotes to be used all over twitch.
I'm all for it
Just tried to shift some of my T1s over to Follower Emotes thinking people would be able to use them anywhere on the platform. Found out quickly that they were bound to only my channel. No point to them at all as they don't add to Twitch culture in any way like this. Going to boost this issue going forward.
Yes. 100% yes.
Without the ability for subscribers to use it across other channels they're no different from bttv except we can make bttv emotes with smaller customized words, we can share and have more bttv emotes. We already had this. Add it to the subscription pack
I would love for my followers and/or subs to use the base emotes everywhere, and I logged in here just to whistle out that I support this idea. I understand that making follower emotes automatically usable anywhere is kind of chaotic, so why not unlock them at tier 1 anyways?
It goes without saying that I would also love to use my own follower emotes everywhere else. I relegated basic emotions to follower emotes, so it's quite sad that my subscribers don't get access to those everywhere, including me during a raid!
This function is still in beta as I'm writing this, so I hope my feedback contributes to have an even nicer environment for users <3
Pretty lame that you can't use follower emotes across all channels
I seem to be a little late to the party, but I really like the idea of subs having follower emotes everywhere. I can actually see myself using quite a few follower emotes all over twitch if I had the option
I disagree as the follower emotes offer me a streamer to have channel-specific emotes that only work in my channel.
emotes that are too channel-specific don't get used in other streams and thus don't attract people to check out the channel because of "cool emotes"
This also allows more branding of your channel and make it a better space to be.
if you want more slots then you have to work to partner!
