The editor is easy to use and is perfect for streamers who are not familiar with design methods. You can start designing your own custom premium Twitch emotes right away.
How to upload Twitch emotes
Go to your Creator Dashboard, then Viewer Rewards and Emotes.
You will find all emote options to upload here, follower emotes, subscriber emotes and animated emotes.
For your animated emotes, select “Upload GIF” or “Easy Animate” depending on whether you want to use Twitch’s default animations or your own animated emote.
In case you want to upload a static emote, you can do so by easily uploading your emote to your desired emote slot.
The GIF upload and the regular upload works the same: add your file and provide a prefix for your emote name, then confirm your selection.
Frequently asked questions
Twitch emotes are similar to regular messaging apps’ emotes, little images used to convey emotions. Twitch has its unique subculture and inside jokes across its popular emotes, and streamers also cultivate their own little communities using emotes that are specifically representative of the content they create.
In the endless expanses of the Internet, you will surely find one or another source where you can download free Twitch emotes. However, doing so will put you in the same pool as everyone else who downloaded those free emotes. Free Twitch emotes are nice, but they do not really help personalize your channel from the ground up. To stand out from the crowd in the best possible way, buying a premium emote pack from OWN3D or using our custom emote maker can really help you with this.
A premium Twitch emotes pack is an all-inclusive package that includes many different variations of a basic emote design. With this package, you will cover almost all your emote needs.
If you want to start using your own emotes on Twitch directly, you need to reach at least affiliate status on Twitch to do so. You can find out how to achieve affiliate status quickly by checking out our detailed guide on the subject.
But even before you become a Twitch Affiliate or Partner, you can offer your emotes to your viewers on your channel through third-party platforms, such as BetterTTV or FrankerFaceZ. These platforms can be connected to Twitch and everyone who uses these Twitch extensions will also see the emotes and can use them in your chat. Keep in mind that the emotes are really only displayed directly in your chat.
If you want to create completely unique and customized Twitch emotes, the OWN3D emote maker is the perfect place to start. This tool allows you to go wild and create your own signature emotes without any prior design knowledge. If you want an emote package that was designed by you and is unique, you definitely need to check out the OWN3D emote maker.
A picture is often worth a thousand words. With emotes, viewers can express themselves freely in chat by sending an emote instead of a traditional text message. Channel owners who have affiliate or partner status can even upload their own emotes for their viewers and subscribers to use. It's an excellent tool for fostering community loyalty and some people will subscribe to you because they can show off their subscription with your emotes.
In early June 2021, Twitch announced the long-awaited launch of animated Twitch emotes on its official blog. Since June 17, creators can enable the feature on their channel. Animated emotes help the chat express itself in a much more exciting way, since they are full of life! These emotes can dance, stare ahead or wave. Best of all, using them is just the same as using the standard emotes. This means that no one needs an extension or anything like that for the animated Twitch emotes, because they're officially hardwired into the Twitch system. You can also include them into Twitch extensions like BetterTTV or use them on other platforms!
If you are looking for animated Twitch emotes, we've got you covered. With the large selection of animated emotes at OWN3D, you are sure to find something suitable for your stream that your viewers will love!
No, this changed at the end of 2021. Since then, even Twitch Affiliates can upload their own animated sub emotes on Twitch.
You can also utilize third-party platforms to use your animated emotes in your Twitch streams as long as they support .gif format. BetterTTV allows you to upload animated emotes even if you aren’t a Twitch Affiliate or Partner yet. FrankerFaceZ is .png only, so you can’t integrate your animated emotes there. Be aware that users who do not have the Twitch extension installed will only see words instead of your animated emotes.
Since the end of 2021, all Twitch Affiliates can upload five Twitch follower emotes for their community. As soon as a viewer follows your channel, they can use these emotes in your chat. Your subscribers can also use them alongside their Twitch sub emotes. It's a good way to offer more variety and a different selection of emotes for your subscribers and followers!
You can upload up to eleven static sub emotes and up to five animated sub emotes for Twitch as an Affiliate, starting with one emote slot.
This limit increases as your community grows, up to nine Twitch sub emotes in total. Affiliates will start with one additional slot for animated emotes as well, with the ability to unlock up to five slots in total. All Affiliates have an additional emote slot for Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscriptions.
As a Twitch Partner, you can upload up to 60 sub emotes, depending on how big your community is. Partners have five additional emote slots for Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscriptions.
You can also use the Twitch extension BetterTTV to upload even more emotes!
Your regular emotes need to be in .png format (to have transparent backgrounds) and in a size of either 112*112px, 56*56px or 28*28px. Our sub emotes for Twitch are delivered in the perfect size for the streaming platform, so you only have to upload them!
The animated emote needs to be in a .gif format and a square shape. You can either use the three standard resolutions (28x28px and 56x56px and 112x112px) or anything up to 4096x4096px with the auto-resize mode enabled. There are a few other technical requirements: GIF image cannot contain more than 60 frames and they must not flash or flicker more than three times within a one-second period.
If you want to create completely unique and customized Twitch emotes, the OWN3D Emote Maker is the perfect place to start. This tool allows you to go wild and create your own signature emotes without any prior design knowledge, guaranteeing a unique end product that perfectly matches your ideas.
