Have you spent a lot of time putting together amazing emotes that your community love to use in your Twitch chat? What if you could also allow them to use the emotes inside your community discord. Well it turns out that you can. In this tutorial we are going to break down how to add your Twitch emotes to discord so your community can use them.

Let’s jump in and get started.

How To Add Twitch Emotes To Discord

The first thing we need to do to add emotes to our discord is link our discord to Twitch if you have not already done that.

Step 1 – Connect Twitch To Discord

To connect Twitch to discord follow the steps below:

Open Discord and navigate to User Settings –> Connections.

Under Connections –> Connect your accounts select the Twitch icon. This will open your default browser where you can authorize Twitch to give access to Discord.

It will ask if you want to allow Discord to access some of your Twitch information. Just select Authorize and this will pair your accounts together giving you access to extra features.

Once you have done that you will be greeted with the screen below.

Step 2 – Enable Emotes In Your Discord Server

Now that we have linked our account to Twitch we need to enable the ability to have emotes on our Discord Server. If you haven’t set up a discord server you can check out our Discord Setup Guide.

To do this navigate to your discord server –> Click the Discord name Dropdown –> Server Settings.

Inside Server settings navigate to Integrations –> Twitch –> Manage. As you have linked your Twitch account to Discord in the previous step you will be able to select your account and click enable. This will connect your Twitch account to your discord server.

Now that you have added your account you will see the screen below. Select the “Allow Synced Subscribers to use your Twitch Custom Emoticons in Discord” box. Make sure to select the Save Changes button after you have made the changes otherwise your work will not save.

This will allow subscribers to use your emotes in your discord server.

Step 3 – Allow Custom Emotes In Your Server

If you want people to be able to use other emotes in your server then we need to enable this in permissions.

To do this go to your Discord server settings –> Roles –> Default Permissions –> @Everyone –> Use External Emoji –> Turn On.

If you want everyone in Discord to be able to use your emotes you can also upload your emotes directly to your server for use. To do this go to your Discord Server Settings –> Emoji.

Here you can select to upload a new emoji which can then be used on your server. You can add up to 50 emojis in this section.

How To Resize Emotes

You may need to resize emotes that you want to use in discord. If that is the case you can use our Twitch Emote Resizer tool. This will take images and resize them to the correct dimensions for Twitch and Discord.

Where To Get Twitch Emotes

Fiverr

Get emotes on Fiverr

It’s impossible to make a list that involves any design work for Twitch without including one of the websites that pioneered the gig economy: Fiverr. On Fiverr, many freelancers post “gigs” that offer all sorts of services starting at $5. Many artists offer their emote-making services on Fiverr for as little as $10 per design.

What makes Fiverr a great website to get emotes from is the fact that former clients can post their reviews of the services they’ve purchased. Fiverr also makes it easy to communicate with the artist so that streamers can effectively convey their ideas for their emote designs. Fiverr is also one of the best choices for content creators who want custom emotes unique to them.

PlaceIt

Another option for making emotes without Photoshop is PlaceIt, where streamers can use templates to make somewhat customized emotes. Because PlaceIt uses templates, the designs won’t be completely original – but once the design is purchased for download, commercial use is allowed. That means streamers can use the graphics they made through PlaceIt for things like merch.

PlaceIt has an interesting pricing method – to create and download a single design costs $39.95. But, streamers can instead opt for the monthly unlimited subscription for $14.95 (or even cheaper if paid annually). Some streamers sign up for a month, make all the graphics they need, then cancel their subscription.

Own3d.tv

Another service that people can use to make their own designs is Own3d.tv’s emote maker. This method allows content creators to design their avatar (although the customization options are limited). Once the avatar is made, Own3d offers various emote designs that streamers can choose from and download for use. Emotes can be purchased in packages of 1, 3, 6, 9, 15, or 26.

Wrapping Up

You should now have all of your emotes uploaded and synced with your discord so you and your subscribers/fans can use them in chat. This is a great way to bring the community and brand you have on Twitch into another platform like discord.
