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!
Well people aren't always going keep following your channel if they can't use the emotes elsewhere.
@Twitch-Staff STOP limiting follower emotes! Make follower emotes euqal to all other emotes on the site! Follower emotes should be usable EVERYWHERE on Twitch in every chat, on every OS-plattform, as long as they are following me! This is the kind of limitation that makes people use BTTV FFZ etc! Who came up with this stupid limitation idea?
YES! I love using my own emotes, so it was a bummer to me to know that any emotes I pay my artist to make thy become follower emotes would really only be used by my chatters. I want a piece of the fun too! After all, they’re my emotes!!
Also, I think this would be a great way to let people try out emotes and still be able to use the ones they’ve grown accustomed to while obtaining new ones if they choosebto sub. Seems kind of weird to play around with certain emotes in chat, and then subscribe ksut to have completely different emotes to use elsewhere.
I’m hoping this gets incorporated! Great idea!
Absolutely agree to this. Currently, the streamer has to make the awkward decision between what emotes can be used by all followers and which ones can be used on other channels (even by themselves).
I 100% agree.
Allowing Follower Emotes to be used across all channels by Tier 1 Subscriptions further incentivizes current subscribers to continue subscriptions.
I think followers should be able to use the follow free emotes anywhere. Not just subscribers. At least, that is what I'd like my viewers to be able to do.
I'm loving the idea of the follower emotes. I would love it though that when they convert to a sub that they can then take those emotes to other channels or to discord with the twitch integration.
Solidarity with the theme!
Follower emoticons should be counted as Tier-0.
Tier-3 subscriptions have always included emoticons for Tier-2 and Tier-1 subscribers. In the case of Tier-0, they must be included in any subscription and are available for use on other channels.
Having Follower emotes locked to your channel does make sense as a "welcome" sort of thing for non-Subs; but the incentive is kind of lost if once people Sub, they still can't use those emotes elsewhere. Emotes are also great exposure for each streamer on channels outside their own!
True. If anyone is making emotes or buying them for their followers, it would be nice to be given the opportunity to let the subscriber share them and of course the streamers themselves out of the channel.
I am actually baffled that this isn't how it is already. As a streamer I actually enjoy seeing my emotes used in other channels MUCH more than my own. And likewise I enjoy seeing the emotes others have collected in my chat and seeing cool or cute new ones. Having follower emotes locked to only your channel feels... weird and strangely restricting. It feels like a very niche thing. Having the follower emotes unlocked for global use when you sub is easily another incentive to sub to a streamer if you love their follower emotes.
I was thinking this and spoke with my chat about this. I think it could be really beneficial and help get exposure out there for some smaller affiliates who may not have too many sub slots as it is (such as myself). The follower emotes are a really cool idea and I think further allowing the usage to be spread to other channels can be helpful for the streamer and fun for the person with said emotes!
such an innovative suggestion id love for it to be added to twitch as well.
I think it would cool to use follower emotes everywhere! Because when I was first introduced or shown to the follower emotes I thought it was for every channel so I put some cute emotes as the follower so everyone could use for the channels and stuff but to find out it only works in my channel. It was kind of sad face. But I really hope twitch approves of this.
It's a great extra perk that adds to already being able to give people for free what on average costs streamers 30-40 $ investment per emote. 5 is limiting. Then you get follower emotes but oh gosh what's better to give people to use in other channels, I want this one for channel but it's the perfect raid command so I gotta keep it paywalled oh no... Bonus subscribers get essentially 2 packs of personal emotes? Yes plz let me give my subs more things built in to twitch
I think having follower emotes accessible globally for subscribers would help incentivize followers to become subscribers, and would also incentivize creators to put their best emotes as follower emotes. More high quality emotes and more subs sounds good to me!
Follower emotes should be the the best ones that would be pivotal to the community experience, since everyone would use them, and locking them away from use on other channels while only allowing the other ones would just not be as impactful as even how emotes worked when they were locked to subs.
Followers should only be allowed to use them in the followed chat but allowing subs to use them anywhere would help push for sub sales
Please let follower emotes work on mobiles and tablets. At the Minute it only works on web browser
I just want to see Follower Emotes to be globally accessible. Not just in the streamers channel, but used in any other channel at any time as a follower. Also even if you are not a follower, but you are a subscriber either by gift or what not. These emotes should be accessible to them as well.
