Syncing Subscriber Roles

Go to your server’s settings and make changes to the roles for your Twitch subscribers. You can control what they do and what they can’t do. You’ll also have to let your subscribers know that to use the Twitch emotes in the Discord server they will have to synchronize their Twitch and Discord accounts.

And that’s how you can use Twitch emotes into your Discord server. However, there’s another way to get those Twitch emotes into Discord without having to sync your Twitch account. You can also add external emotes to be used in your server. This is how we do it:

  • Head over to your server and click on server settings.
  • Now tap on Roles and scroll till you see the Use External Emojis option.
  • Simply set the toggle to On and set this role to everyone in your channel or just to a handful of server moderators.

You can also add this to your channel by simply syncing your Discord account and selecting what server you’d like to sync to make use of the Twitch emotes.
