How To Change Your Twitch Name Color

Twitch is the most famous streaming platform in the world. With millions of daily users, this platform has managed to become the best place for streamers to share their content with the world. That’s why more and more people want to join the community. 


If you’ve recently joined the Twitch community, you’ve noticed this platform has a ton of different features and options. Users who have been here for quite some time already know all of these features. Some are much cooler than others. 

One such feature is the color of their Twitch name. Now, if you’ve joined a stream on Twitch, you’ve definitely noticed users with different colored names. Every single one of them has a unique color. But, the problem is, you can’t figure out how they do it.

That’s where this guide comes in. We will help you solve this problem and show you how you can change the color of the name. It will only take a couple of seconds. The good thing is, there are two different options you can try. And both of them have the same results. Now, without further ado, let’s get right to it. Here is what you need to do to change the color of your Twitch name. 

Option 1

For the first option, you will be changing the color via typing in chat. Here is how that works. 

Step 1

Open Twitch. In the chat, type in “/color”. 

Step 2

Now, you will see this text pop up. Twitch will automatically show you the colors you can use to change your name color. As you can see, there are plenty of colors you can choose from.  


Step 3

 Select the color you want, and type it in the chat. In this particular example, we have selected a green color. To make your name green, all you have to do is type “/color green”. Enter that message in the chat. 

Step 4

Wait for a couple of seconds for the color to change. To see how your name looks like, type anything in the chat. Now, you can see your green name. 

Option 2

This is a much easier option. Here you can select any color you like without typing it. Here is how it works. 

Step 1

 Select the cog icon on the bottom left corner of the screen. This is the settings menu for your chat. Click on it. 

Step 2

 On top of the menu, you will see all the different color options you can choose from. If you don’t like the preset colors, you can always add more colors by extending the menu. To do that, select “more colors”. When you are done picking the color you want, wait a couple of seconds before typing in chat. It will take a few seconds to change the color of the name. 


That’s it! Now you know how to change the color of your name in Twitch. As you can see it is a piece of cake. So, go ahead and try it out for yourself.
