Have you seen people drop a !lurk command in other peoples Twitch chat? This command allows a viewer to let the streamer know they are there but won’t be able to chat at the current time. This is a great feature to have in your stream as not everyone will want to talk all the time however they still want to show their support.

In this tutorial we are going to show you how to set up the Lurk command using the Streamlabs cloudbot. Let’s jump in.

How To Set Up !Lurk Command On Cloudbot

To set up the lurk 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 lurk command. Under the template section you will see !lurk. Click on this and the command will auto populate with the lurk command.

You can adjust the command response if you want it to respond with something different. See below for another response you could use for the lurk command. You can copy and paste this:

Thanks for joining us! Have a nice Lurk {user.name}!

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 !Lurk 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 !lurk command. It should return the message you entered in the response section.

Wrapping Up

Now you will know when someone is watching your stream but just wants to have a little lurk. We definitely don’t recommend trying to engage with someone who just wants to lurk. Let them enjoy your stream in peace.
