How To Create Twitch Alerts

If you want to know how popular streamers have fancy alerts, you’ve come to the right place. Twitch alerts pop up when someone subscribes, follows, donates, or for the number of views a certain channel gets. 


Making your own custom alerts is a bit tricky. That’s why we have made this guide for you. We will show you how you can make the ideal Twitch alerts you’ve always wanted. But, before we begin, there is something we want to point out first. 

Check out this website. You will need the OBS to make it work. This is a software you will need to download. This guide focuses on this particular software. If you install it correctly, you will get access to the CLR browser.

For this guide, you will need StreamLabs. Here you can create the custom Twitch alerts the way you want. So, you will want to log in here with your Twitch account. 

Now that we have all the important stuff out of the way, it is time to start with the guide. All you have to do is follow these simple steps and you will have your alerts ready. Let’s begin.

Step 1

The first thing you want to do is download the CLR Browser Source Plugin. This is for the OBS. When you are done downloading it, extract the same file to the “OBS Plugin” folder. 

Step 2

Go to TwitchAlerts. For that, you will have to log in to StreamLabs. On your home page, you will see plenty of different options and menus. What you are looking for is in the “Settings” menu. Press on “Follow Alerts”. It is the second submenu next to “Alert Settings”.

Step 3

Here you can customize your own alerts. You can add any picture you want. Don’t worry about setting the right size of the image. The website will do that for you. Here you can be really creative. You can make a unique notification alert that viewers will love. As you can see, there is already a customized image added. 

Step 4

When you are done customizing your alert, go ahead and click “Launch”. 

Now, a new green window will pop up. This is the window where you can see the alert you just made. 

Step 5

To make the alert pop up in the new green window, select “Test Follow Alert”. There you have it! Now you can see the alert you’ve just made.

Step 6

Open the OBS. Under “Sources” click “add” and select CLR browser. Open it.


Step 7

Copy the URL address of your alert and paste it into the browser. Just like in the screenshot below.

Step 8

Now, go back to the OBS and test it again. See how it works. Here you can edit it or do whatever you want with it. 

That’s it! Now your alert is ready! You can repeat the same process with the hosts, subscriptions, or follows. 


You can create your own Twitch alert. It may seem a bit complicated at first. But, you will quickly get the hang of it. Try it out and see for yourself.
