Allow streamers to give channel points to viewers/entire chat
The channel points right now are just based on streaks and time spent in a chat. What would make it perfect is the ability to award your viewers or entire chat with an amount of points you choose as well. If it were possible to award points yourself in addition to the twitch integrated method of earning points it would be perfect.
-I could choose to award the whole chat 100 points each when we get raided.
-I could choose to award a specific viewer 50 points for telling the best joke.
Bonjour, j'ai intégré un jeu pokemon à ma chaine ou les viewers utilise leurs points pour acheter des pokeball et attraper les pokemon qui pop.
Il serait super que je puisse donner des points de chaîne comme je le souhaite afin qu'ils puissent être récompensés par moi-même.
En plus d'attrapé des pokemon, ils peuvent faire des combats pvp entre viewers mais pour activer cette fonction il leur faut églament avoir des points de chaînes, le souci, c'est que les nouveaux viewers, on peut de points quand ils arrivent cette fonction pourrait me permettre de dynamiser l'attraction avec mes viewers .
J'ajouterai également une fonction pour racheter des points de chaînes avec les bits.
Pour le moment la seule astuce que j'ai trouvée et de ne pas valider les points de chaîne afin de les rembourser… cette action et très fastidieuse et me fait perdre beaucoup de temps pendant mes lives.
SVP Twitch donnais nous cette fonction !
I would love this. i would like to do chat challenges and be able to reward viewers a small amount of additional channel points. Great for celebrations steams too.
I do believe this could be a thing. If only Twitch could see this.
I do like this idea and I believe that this feature would change the overall content dynamics for everyone. The amount of things you can do with this as a feature is amazing.
Until this feature is added, you can use StreamElements (and I am sure there are other sites) to reward viewers. The only thing is that I believe you have to do it one person at a time rather than giving rewards to everyone viewing like was mentioned in the OP.
Twitch is sleeping on a great idea here and I think, eventually, it will be added.
I wanted to make a mini-game with channel points as rewards then I found out how limited Channel points API is, it should be called Channel rewards API. Please, implement the real Channel points API.
I Googled this this hoping it was already a feature 😭 today is my first stream as an Affiliate and I wanted to give 1,000 points to all of the followers who helped me reach this point.
I priced all my redemption really low so 1,000 points would give them 10 sound alerts, let them guide the raid, or get halfway to my biggest reward which is me playing a ghost hunting game without my glasses for 5 minutes. It would have made my Affiliate debut that much more fun.
I agree with what some people are saying about relying on 3rd party applications for loyalty points. Having an option for streamer (and perhaps even mods) to give out channel points would be good. I'd like to expand the suggestion by adding a new API endpoint for channel-point management. That way 3rd party developers will still be able to hook into a loyalty system.
Points are absurdly restrictive. Awarding points to viewers at will could allow us to move our point systems from StreamLabs or StreamElements to Twitch for good. Or reward behaviors. Create award-winning channel minigames, or whatever we came up with. But if we can't program our own points, they will still suck compared to much older Loyalty services on other platforms.
This is a great idea to increase engagement! I had this idea and it only works if I’m allowed to reward chat some channel points in the future
I do multiple things in my stream. And sometimes I forget to turn off for the actual stream irrelevant rewards, so if they redeem that reward, they just lost the points. This time it would be great if we could add points back.
Or in scene X there is cam what you can redeem via channel points, but not on scene Y. If they redeem when scene Y is on, they lost the points. We can not control fast the rewards (turn off automatically on scene Y for example).... But there will be no change here (very fast) I think. Channel points are introduced almost exactly 1 year ago...but not really changed there anything.
Yeah, how do we make this a thing!
Especially with predictions, if there's ever a time where I accidentally pick the wrong choice, there's no way to rectify that situation. Or if someone accidentally bets 4,000 points instead of 400 for example, I can't fix this. It would also be nice, like others have said, if we could dole out channel points as we see fit for rewards and what not.
This would also help with bugs and glitches for sound alerts since those can't be refunded
Yes, we need that, it would be awesome and can make engagement
YES PLEASE !
I hold a "tournament" on my channel and I want to be able to give channel points to the winners as a reward !
I don't know why such basic feature is still not implemented in 2021, and at this point, I'm too afraid to ask ^^
If I’m at 99.9k channelpoints someone can give me 100 channelpoints
Twitch please add this. I always want to show my love and appreciation for viewers by showering them with things they can use to interact with me and my channel points are a big part of that. Please add this feature.
You need an option as Streamer to give Channelpoints to you Viewers.
