How And Where To Download Twitch Emotes
Last Updated: May 7, 2020
Twitch emotes are an integral part of chat on the platform. Emotes are probably used more on Twitch than anywhere else and while the platform has a bunch of them included, we are always on the lookout for more. That’s what this page is all about. I’ll list a range of sources where you can download Twitch emotes to use however you like.
Twitch and emotes go together like peanut and jelly. Kappa is now a ubiquitous term for sarcasm and you don’t get excited, you get ‘pog’ or ‘pogchamp’. You have to be there to fully understand it but if you’re on this page looking for more Twitch emotes, you probably already do.
So without any further delay, let’s get some of those Twitch emote download locations.
Where to get Twitch emotes
The easiest way to get Twitch emotes is to subscribe to a channel. Most popular channels will have several tiers of emotes you can earn by subscribing. There are many thousands of great channels on Twitch and if you have a little coin to spend, this is a simple way to gain access to more emotes while also supporting your favorite streamer.
Other sources of Twitch emotes include:
FrankerFaceZ is a Chrome extension that has a load of emotes you can use within Twitch. If you access the platform through Chrome or a Chrome-based browser, you can use this extension for free and gain access to a ton of goodies. It’s one of the easiest ways to access new emotes so is well worth checking out if you don’t have it already.
Global Twitch Emotes
Global Twitch Emotes is another Chrome extension that offers emotes. It replaces some of the default phrases with emotes and offers new and different emotes and has also integrated other emote extensions so you get the maximum number of features in a single addon. Another source well worth checking out.
BetterTTV is more than just a Chrome extension. It’s more like leading where Twitch follows. Some of the best features of BetterTTV have been integrated into Twitch, they were so useful. As well as useful features there is a wide selection of emotes you can add to your Twitch experience.
Some of them are very good indeed and as they are added alongside some other useful features. If you’re going to use one Chrome extension from this list, make it this one. BetterTTV also adds mass banning and unbanning, anonymous chat, phrase highlighting and some other useful features as well as those emotes.
TwitchMetrics is a Twitch website that not only shows who the fastest or most popular streams and streamers are but it also shows the most popular emotes. There are also a range of emotes available on the site, some of which I don’t think I have seen before. The classics are all there, 4Head, Kappa, BabyRage and so on but there are also a huge selection of others.
I don’t know anyone who has paid real money for emotes outside of stream subs but if you do, Etsy is one place to try. There are a few emote sellers on there that offer some great quality custom emotes. These would be useful for offering unique emotes for subscribers to your own channel as long as you don’t mind that they won’t be unique. If you’re not a graphic artist and don’t want to commission your own channel emotes, this is one place to try.
I don’t usually recommend Fiverr for anything, ever, but this is an exception. It was recommended to me by a friend who is setting up her own Twitch channel and wanted some unique emotes to offer subscribers. She commissioned someone on Fiverr to create some unique emotes and they delivered. They cost less than $10 each and she was assured they will be unique.
There are lots of emote creators on Fiverr but you must make sure the creator commits in writing to keeping the ones you buy unique to you and to not resell them.
Those are a few options for downloading more Twitch emotes. It doesn’t count the many hundreds of PNG websites or graphic repositories where you can make your own, just places you can download emotes ready to go.
