Worry no more! If you are using Firefox or Chrome, you can now enable notifications. You no longer need to open a tab for Twitch. Even if it is not opened in the browser tab, you can still be informed if your favorite streamers go live. You can also be notified about trending Clips on Twitch as well as newly uploaded videos that might interest you. 

Here are the two ways on how you can enable your browser notifications:

Through the “Settings” Page

  1. On your desktop, open Firefox or Chrome. 
  2. Log in to your Twitch account. 
  3. Go to your username and select the drop-down button found at the top right corner of your screen. 
  4. Go to “Settings.”
  1. Look for the “Notification” tab, then select. 
  1. Under “Notifications,” you can see “Smart Notifications.” Just slide the button to the right to turn it on. Make sure that the button turns green. 

If you turn on the smart notifications, you will get notifications even if Twitch is not open in your tab. You can get either an email or a mobile notification when a channel goes live. But remember that this currently works on Firefox or Chrome.

Through the “Notification Center”

  1. On your desktop, open Firefox or Chrome. 
  2. Log in to your Twitch account. 
  3. On the top right portion of your screen, you can find “Notification Center,” then select. 
  1. Choose “Settings” and you will be directed to “Notifications,” just like above.
  1. Enable “Smart Notifications” by sliding the button to the right. Make sure that it turns green. 

And there you have it, you already enabled Twitch notifications! Anyway, you will be given options to turn on all notifications on Twitch by email and on mobile. 

You also have the option what notifications you want to get. For instance, under “On Twitch,” if all notifications are turned on, it will include live, past broadcasts, clips, events, chat mentions, moderation needs, and gifts and rewards. 

Under “By Email,” if all notifications are turned on, it will include live, past broadcasts, events, your channel, subscriber emails, stream stats, and developer updates. 

Under “By Mobile,” if all notifications are turned on, it will include live, past broadcasts, events, chat mentions, friend activity, and recommended live. 

Take note that if your Twitch account is already opened on your browser, you no longer need to be notified that a Streamer is live this is because Twitch does want you to get duplicates. This feature is also available globally for as long as you are using Firefox or Chrome as your browsers.

If you enabled your Twitch notifications, you no longer have the reason to miss your favorite Streamer live. The steps are just easy. Try to check now.
