Let the streamer have access to follower emotes
I’ve seen creators in the beta mention that they don’t have access to the emotes since you cannot follow yourself on Twitch. Therefore, the creator wouldn’t be able to use their own emotes in their community, as they are not a follower of the channel. Please allow creators to have access to those emotes too!!
Thanks so much for flagging this. Streamers should have access to their follower emotes. Please have any streamer who doesn’t have access to their follower emotes reach out in this thread so we can investigate this further.
Hi I don't have access to my follower emotes
Don’t have access to my follower emotes
I do not have the Follower option in my Emote Slot Assignment. How can I get it unlocked?
I still do not have follower emotes, and would love to have them for my channel.
I am unable to access my follower emotes and followers on mobile also seem to be unable to use them. They also no longer show up in my discord despite my discord and twitch being linked.
Following up to my previous post:
I do have access to my Follower Emotes and so do my Followers. The problem is that they are only available on the PC version of Twitch. Utilizing the mobile app or console apps, noone has access to those Emotes. Has anyone else experienced this and/or know a fix?
I dont seem to have access to my own follower emotes T^T
I do not have access to my follower emotes, either. I was told to respond to this thread. Chat was able to use it immediately, though.
I understand that followers are only allowed to use them in my chat but is the intention to let the streamer be able to access them outside of their chat as well? I think that should be that case, seeing as they are our own emotes and is a good way to advertise by allowing us to be able to use them across Twitch.
I moved a couple sub emotes to the new follower emote spots. I can only use the follower emotes in my own chat. They are not available anywhere else on twitch.
They aren't available for mobile. Seems to work fine on PC and they are now available for me on there as well.
I am having that same issue with my follower emotes.. I also have long time followers that do not see them either but some followers can see them. It seems very arbitrary on who in my channel can view the 2 I selected to be follower emotes.
I'm currently facing the same issue, I cannot use my Follower Emotes but Everyone else can fine, hopefully this is a simple bug that can be fixed
I can't use my own emotes currently for follower emotes, but my chat can
I can use my follower emotes by typing them, but in the emote selector it states I must follow my own channel. I would assume that I should also be able to select these as I uploaded them.
I have the follower emote Beta but I am unable to use them myself. One of my followers (not currently subbed) also could not see them on stream Wednesday night. Any news or follow up on this?
I just noticed I have this problem as well.
I still don’t have access even messaged Twitch support. They told me to delete bttv which has nothing to do with not being able to use my own emotes. Even on mobile I can’t see them which you can’t even use bttv on mobile. Pretty frustrated that I was told I can use them but still can’t and have had zero actual help resolve this.
Yes I also cannot access my own follower emotes. It is really odd! Thank you for starting this thread!
Just want to clarify for some people, I am in the beta and have an email from twitch confirming so. The emotes do not show up in my emote picker on mobile or PC. The only way I can select them currently is by typing out the code on PC.
I can use my follower emotes if I type them in manually but they don't show up in the quick selection in twitch chat. They do however show up in my obs chat quick selection but it is locked and tells me I have to follow my channel to use them, which obviously I can't.
But again. Typing the emote shortcode directly into chat still allows me to use it.
