You have likely seen the Follow Age command being used in other streamers chats. This is where the viewer can type in the command and return how long they have been following the stream. This is a interesting stat for both the viewer and the streamer. You will truly find out who the OGs are in your stream.
In this tutorial we are going to break down how you can set up the FollowAge command on your Twitch stream using the Streamlabs Cloudbot. Let’s jump in.
How To Set Up !FollowAge Command On Cloudbot
To set up the FollowAge command on Twitch you will need to use a third party bot. In this tutorial we will be using the Streamlabs Cloudbot.
Step 1 – Make Cloudbot A Mod In Your Channel
If you have not already modded the Streamlabs cloud bot in your channel you will need to do this first. This allows the bot to interact and post in your chat. To do this open up your Twitch channel and navigate to Profile Picture –> Creator Dashboard –> Chat Box.
In the chat box type /mod Streamlabs
This will allow the Streamlabs cloud bot to interact with your chat meaning you can use commands.
Step 2 – Add A Custom Command In Streamlabs Cloudbot
Go to Streamlabs.com and ensure you are logged in with your Twitch account. Navigate to Cloudbot on the left hand side and ensure that Cloudbot is turned on.
Now that Cloudbot is on we can create a custom command. To do this go to Commands –> Custom –> Add Command.
We can now create out command inside the custom command editor. Luckily there is a template set up for the FollowAge command. Under the template section you will see !followage. Click on this and the command will auto populate with the !followage command.
You can adjust the command response if you want it to respond with something more customised. However this command is fairly simple and doesn’t need much editing.
You may also want to go into the advanced setting section and add a “User Cooldown”. This will stop the same user spamming the command over and over again in chat. I recommend setting this to 60 seconds.
Click “Confirm” to save your command.
Step 3 – Test The !followage Command
You can now test to see if your command is working correctly in chat. Head over to your Twitch chat and type in the !followage command. It should return the message you entered in the response section with the follow length of the viewer.
Now your viewers can easily check how long they have been following your channel for by using this command. You might be shocked at how long some of your viewers have stuck around.
