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!
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!
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.
