Twitch Prime on Mobile

In order to use the Twitch Prime subscription, you will need to follow the next steps:

  • Open the Twitch app on your mobile device.
  • Go to the Twitch account you want to subscribe to.
  • You can choose if you want to proceed to the channel page or the ongoing stream.
  • If you opt for the channel page click the “Subscribe” option that is located at the top of the page (in the white box).
  • On the other hand, if you choose the stream, you need to tap on the purple “Subscribe” button which is below the video.
  • If you do not see the “Subscribe” button, tap on the video and a menu will pop up. Click the “Subscribe” option at the bottom and confirm the channel subscription.
  • When you finish with the previous steps, you will be asked how many tokens you want to buy.
  • The so-called “Sub Token” counts for one month. Therefore, if you want to subscribe to a Twitch account for four months you will have to purchase four Sub Tokens.
  • When you select how much time you want to remain subscribed and to auto-renew your subscription, tap on the option “Purchase Sub Tokens”.
  • Confirm your choice.
  • Enter the information about the payment, and confirm your purchase once again.

When you do all the aforementioned stuff, your subscription benefits will be unlocked and you will be able to use them.

Donate a Free Subscription

Twitch is all about expressing yourself and cooperating with other members of the community.

And we strongly recommend you to help and rejoice others.

Namely, one of the subscription options, if you have been already subscribed to a preferred channel, is to purchase a monthly subscription once again.

When you purchase active subscriptions (or subscription) again, you can donate them (or it) to a specific Twitch user or to the community of your favorite streamer.

In order to gift a subscription, you need to perform the following things:

  • Open your Twitch mobile app.
  • Go to the search bar and search for a specific channel to which you want to subscribe again.
  • Tap on the ongoing stream.
  • From the menu that will appear choose the “Subscribe” option.
  • Due to the fact that you have been already subscribed to the channel, the option called “Gift a sub” will appear.
  • Tap on the package you want to purchase.
  • Namely, you can choose between 1 sub or 5, 10, 25, or 50 subs.
  • When you choose the package of subscriptions you want to donate, type in the name of a user you want to surprise or simply donate it to the community of your favorite streamer.
  • Check the payment details and confirm your purchase.

Once you finish with the aforementioned steps, the community or a specific user will receive at least one free subscription, or moreover, a Twitch subscription for multiple months.

Twitch Prime Membership Benefits

The Twitch Prime membership is of great value to streamers because it represents a stable source of support and funding for their channels.

Namely, a price of a monthly subscription to a channel via Twitch Prime is from 4 to 5 dollars, depending on the area from which you come.

On the other hand, Twitch Prime subscribers gain access to great things, as well.

Twitch Prime Membership Benefits

Twitch Prime sub gets you links for bonus games, loot from the games, chat privileges, ad-free viewing, Twitch Prime subscriber badge, and many more things…

Nowadays, it is easy to get Twitch Prime because you only need an Amazon Prime account or an Amazon Prime Video membership.

Moreover, from month to month you get a free Twitch channel subscription.

It is a pretty exclusive benefit that you can use on one specific channel each month.

If by any chance, you have neither of the two accounts that we have mentioned, you will have to sign up without a linked Prime account.

Finally, it could be said that Twitch Prime also comes as a bonus to Amazon Prime users, and we have noticed that due to its easy setup process many Amazon users end up on Twitch.


Why am I having problems on iOS with Sub Tokens?

Twitch is currently replacing its sub tokens with a recurring subscription. Thanks to the recurring subscription, Twitch Prime users will not be confused (as they are now) when they want to use the app on the desktop or the website. Unfortunately, for now, problems with functioning might occur.

Why does the Twitch Prime subscription cost more for smartphone devices?

That is because Twitch is trying to pay a fair price to streamers and content creators. In order to do so, they need to add an additional cost for the Prime subscription.

Twitch administration also bears in mind that people who opt for the Twitch Prime subscription want to support their favorite streamers because otherwise, they would not pay an extra cost. Moreover, the App stores often charge extra costs for their services, so the price reflects those costs, as well.

What happens if I have subscribed to a channel using Tokens, while a recurring subscription was available?

You do not have to worry. Your subscription will be valid until your Tokens expire. However, you will use a recurring subscription when the Tokens expire as a regular subscription.

Can I reactivate my subscription if I have canceled it by mistake?

Yes, you can. However, you will not be able to do reactivate it right away. You should re-subscribe and wait a few days, the Twitch administration will afterward reactivate your account.


Overall, the Twitch Prime account or Prime membership is a great thing.

You get access to various additional features and you literally support your favorite content creator and his account by paying the subscription fee.

Thanks to our smartphones we can now follow every new video or stream whenever we are.

Therefore, we hope that you will use the full capacity of this benefit and that this article will be helpful.
