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 think that's a great idea! It would also help get people to a creator's channel.
They're emotes you wouldn't otherwise get anyway. Take the W and don't ask to have your cake and eat it too.
I love this idea, I honestly don't see any downside to it. Followers can use the emotes in the streamer's chat, subs can use them wherever, and there's more of an incentive to sub, so more money for both the streamer and twitch. It's a win for everyone involved.
@Spid3rham - No one is suggesting not letting followers use follow emotes in the channel. We’re suggesting letting subscribers ALSO use them globally. It’s a win-win situation for everyone, and a wonderful incentive for our loyal subscribers.
Please, Please do this... If you commission Emotes for like 30 USD each you want them to be used... at least for Subs
nope, your model of only being allowed in the channel they are from is PERFECT and a great compromise. it's about feeling like you're part of the community while in that channel. not about streamers spending money to give you free emotes, that isnt fair
I think it would be great that if you’re subscribed, that you could use the Follower Emotes like normal ones. By that I mean that you can use them in other peoples chats. Also maybe let people unlock them through being active in chat or being followed for multiple months.
Yeah it seems logical, since higher tier subs can use lower tier emotes. It'd only encourage more people to sub I imagine if they got even more emotes then they already do.
it would be nice to use them outside of one streamer to send the love to others and express yourself more
I wholeheartedly support this. Streamer & Subscribers to said streamer should be allowed to use the Follower Emotes globally!
I love the idea of follower emotes! My only wish is that subs could use them anywhere on twitch as an extra sub perk. There's some really cool follower emotes that I want to use everywhere but are locked to a single channel sadly.
This would be lovely! My subs don't want me to put certain emotes I would like as free because they want to keep using them on other channels! Letting subs use the follower emotes on other channels would solve this and will make subscribing more desirable
Love this idea! This should 100% be a thing. Followers can get a taste of 5 different emotes and then if they subscribe they can use those 5 emotes + the other x amount of emotes globally!
100% this - subs should get access to all emotes on all channels, including follower emotes. If I'm a follower and I get used to using that emote in chat, I'll want to use it elsewhere and I would sub to do this.
Yes! 100% agree with this. Subscribing means you can use the extra emotes outside too. If, as a follower, they are getting used to using that set of emotes in your channel that means they will want to use them outside too which will potentially convert them into a subscriber.
This makes perfect sense and I definitely want that too!
Please, please implement this!
this would drive people to follow streams just for emotes, BUT, that means clicking on a channel they might not have clicked on before, giving the streamer an opportunity to retain that viewer, which leads to the viewer subbing/donating etc. I don't see a downside to be honest
I was just thinking the exact same thing. I don't see a downside to this.
agreed! I don't think the emotes should be restricted to a channel. Personally me... I think it should apply to everyone, not just subscribers but I digress!
