Ever wonder how some Twitch users have emotes but they aren’t Partnered? Or they’re Affiliated but they have more than 3? 

That’s because they’re using a cool plugin to do that! 

If you’re new to streaming or want to know how to get more emotes in your channel, then let me show you how to make this happen so that your viewers can use it when you’re live!

How To Get Emotes

Unless you have AMAZING drawing and photoshop skills, you’re most likely going to hire a graphic designer to make your emotes. They can create some cool caricatures or awesome word emotes for your channel, and they will look amazing. However, you can definitely attempt to do it yourself by using your own photos, but it will take some time to master them.

Here’s one video from one of my good friends, Gael Level on how to create your own emotes.

He has several other videos that you could try to follow too:

If you’re going to take the hiring route, here are some places where you can find a graphic designer for your emotes:

Fivver

You can definitely find some great artists here at Fivver. Just type in “Twitch Emotes” and you can find a good range of prices from like $5 – $40 USD for 1 emote or a whole pack of 5. 

Facebook groups

Ask around in the Facebook groups that’s Twitch-related! There are some creative streamers in there who are willing to help other streamers for their emotes. Asking around and there will be some people that will offer to help. Twitch Connect, Twitch.tv Streamers, and Twitch Live are few Facebook groups you can check out.

Instagram

Artists also tend to put up their work on Instagram as a great way to expose their own portfolio. You can always find some great fanart from there too. Try #twitchemotes or #emotes when looking for graphic designers especially for those who knows how to make Twitch emotes.

If they’re a dedicate emote graphic designer, they will supply you with three sizes, 112×112, 56×56, and 28×28. These are the official sizes when uploading emotes to your Twitch channel. So if you’re affiliated, you will have to upload all 3 sizes for that emote, make sure they’re labeled and easy to find in your computer!

Now You’re Ready To Upload Your New Emotes

I’m going to break it down into easy steps for you, so here we go!

  1. Go to the page https://manage.betterttv.net/
  2. Click the ‘Connect Twitch’ button
  3. Enter your credentials
  4. Head to ‘My Emotes
  5. Click the ‘Add’ button
  6. Upload your 112×112 emote
  7. Enter your chat code like ‘attkHype’ or ‘Kappa’ – make it unique!
  8. Under Justification, you can explain that this was designed for your channel. Maybe provide the graphic designer’s link. This is to prove that your emote wasn’t copied from a different channel
  9. Hit that ‘Submit’ button
  10. Then it’s a waiting game for 1-5 days
  11. All approved!

How To Use Your Emotes In Your Channel aka  SPAM THEM EMOTES

Now that your emotes are approved, let’s get them to your chat channel! I love using my Google Chrome browser, so you can easily search for it through the Chrome Web Store.

However, if you use a different browser, go through to the NightDev website and click on the, “for another browser” button and select your preferred browser to get the plugin.

Once that’s installed, head over to your Twitch channel.

Click on the cogwheel at the bottom of your chat.

Click on the “BetterTTV settings”

Enable or turn on the Emote Menu

Click on the smiley face next to the cogwheel and your menu will pop-up

Then bam! Your emotes are ready to go to spam in your chat!

Enjoy!
