How to Add Commands on Twitch

Twitch offers video streaming services where streamers can stream from various categories, including gameplay, art, music, or all the best sports action. Streamers try to get more and more audiences on Twitch as a wider audience brings in ways of monetizing your channel on Twitch.

When streamers gain their name and fame on Twitch because of their streams, they start getting a huge audience on their channel.

It often becomes difficult for them to manage both things, interact with the viewers and focus on their stream.

Thus, to deal with it, they come up with Twitch Commands, which help them save their time and manage both things together.

What are Twitch commands?

Twitch commands are your time-consuming performers.

These are chat lines and commands that do basic coding. You can use Twitch commands to save your time and use it more efficiently because by using Twitch commands, you don’t need to handle each viewer’s chat individually.

It deals with every specific message in your chat. Twitch commands help you in responding to common questions. Also, they can be effective in performing certain tasks like initiating raids, blocking a user, and much more. 

They also make your stream much more interactive. Twitch commands help you grow your community because they entertain all your viewers interacting with you in chat.

All the commands have a common syntax. The action and any extra parameters come first, then the “/” character.

You don’t need to add all the commands to your channel; personally, there are some basic preset chat commands added by Twitch. You can use them directly by typing. 

To make your channel on Twitch much more impressive and customized, you need to add Custom Twitch Commands. A Twitch Chat bot can add these.

How are Twitch Commands useful?

Twitch commands perform certain tasks like you can ban a user, controlling who can access your chat box, initiating the raids, sending a whisper to someone, and a lot more.

If you have a huge audience active in the chat box but can’t interact with them as you are busy with your stream, these commands act as a savior and help you interact with your viewers so that your viewers don’t get disappointed.

Mods or Moderators can make commands on Twitch but cannot add new Twitch Commands. 

For adding new commands on Twitch, a chatbot has to be used.

By using a chatbot, streamers or moderators can make customized chat commands which will help them respond to the repeating questions in chat and take up the viewer’s request.


With the help of Twitch Commands, you can interact with your audience and go ahead with your stream smoothly and concurrently.

Hence, there are some basic Twitch Commands which are mentioned above. However, for the customized Twitch Commands, you need to have a Chatbot.
