Do you want your viewers to be able to give each other a hug in your chat. I’m sure you have seen it before where some of your viewers start to bond in your chat. This is when you know you have really started to form a community. A great way to increase engagement in your chat is by adding in the hug command. A hug command lets one viewer send a hug to another. Wholesome, right?
Let’s just in and take a look at how you can set this up.
How To Set Up !Hug Command On Twitch
To set up the Hug command on your Twitch channel you will need to use a third party bot. In this tutorial we will be showing you how to set up the command with Nightbot. If you haven’t already created a nightbot account head over to Nightbot and create one.
Step 1 – Mod Nightbot
To ensure that night bot works on our channel we will have to first mod Night bot in our chat. This allows it to pull necessary information from your channel and return it in chat.
To mod night bot head over to Twitch and open you Twitch channel. To do this navigate to your Profile Picture –> Creator Dashboard –> Chat Box.
In the chat box type /mod nightbot
This will mod the Night bot chat bot in your chat allowing you to use commands in your stream.
Step 2 – Add A Custom Command In Nightbot (Hug)
In Night bot navigate to Commands –> Custom –> Add Command.
We now have to create our command. There is a few different options we need to fill in.
Command – This is what users will type into chat to activate the Hug command. I recommend just setting this to !hug to keep it easy for your users.
Message – The message is what gets returned to the user when they enter the command in your Twitch chat. I have included the code below so you can just copy and paste the code into nightbot.
$(user) hugged $(touser)! Love is in the air...
Userlevel – For this command you can set userlevel to everyone
Cooldown – You don’t want people to repeatedly spam the Hug command in chat so I would recommend setting cool down to a minimum of 60 seconds.
Alias – You can leave this blank
Below you can see how the command should look before clicking submit to save the command.
We can now test this command on our stream.
Step 3 – Test The !hug Command
To test if the hug command is working, head over to your Twitch chat and type in the !hug command.
All you have to do to trigger the command is type; !hug + Username of the person you want to hug in chat. As you can see below nightbot returns the message that you have hugged the user you specified.
That’s all there is to it. Now you or your viewers can send a hug out to other people in your stream and just make everyones day a little bit brighter.
