Twitch Notifications – Easy Steps to Keep Up on Stream

Updated On:

If you are a streamer who has just started using the Twitch app, you certainly have a lot of questions regarding the notifications and the way the whole platform works.

The Twitch mobile app is quite good, but if you want to learn how to handle the notification settings and create the best possible experience and performance on the website, you will need to know a few tricks.

Here we have decided to provide you with some of the best tricks for Twitch notifications to make your experience a lot easier.

What Do Notifications Do On Twitch?

If you have set up your Twitch streaming channel and you want to pursue a career on this platform, then you will need to learn about all the options and features it offers.

Twitch notifications are one of the crucial parts of the Twitch app, and if you want to have a specific channel that will stand out and have an excellent performance, you need to know about the account settings and notification options.

While you will receive email notifications all the time, you will also need to know how to use smart notifications because they will have a huge impact on your overall performance.

Smart notifications will provide you with live notifications when someone you are following is streaming, and if you are not active on the Twitch platform at the moment, you will immediately receive notifications on your mobile phone or email.

This is the easiest way to receive push notifications, and it will be the fastest way to find out everything that is happening on Twitch, which is very important if you want to stay in touch with all the happenings.

However, smart notifications are not automatic, so you will need to have smart notifications enabled in your account settings if you want to receive live ups notifications whenever you are online.

The notification settings can be quite a problem for those new to the platform, so we decided to make things a bit easier for you.

How To Manage Your Twitch Notifications?

Notifications settings are something most users on the app cannot think through well, but we are here to help you learn how to handle them and enable or disable notifications.

If you want to receive notifications, you will need to:

  • Open your Account settings
  • Open Notification settings
  • Choose Smart notifications
  • Click Enable smart notifications tab

You will also be able to choose to turn off live notifications or email notifications, and you can choose to only have on-site notifications, so you will receive them only when you are active on the platform.

Notifications are enabled as long as you keep the settings this way, and even if you one your Twitch account in a different browser, you will have the same settings.

Twitch users need to find the type of notifications that works the best for them, and even though you can restore settings whenever you want, you don’t want too much browser cache or push notifications interrupting your streaming performance.

If something is bothering you, you can always choose to disable notifications and receive only email notifications, which will help you keep up the excellent work.

How Do I Get Twitch Notifications On My PC?

If you don’t have the Twitch app and are using the platform in Google Chrome or a different browser, your settings tabs will be a bit different, and you will need to handle notification issues a bit differently.

It is recommended to use Twitch in the Mozilla browser because all others seem to produce bugs when dealing with this page, so you should probably think twice about the browser you will use for streaming.

If you want to receive notifications while you toggle the Twitch platform in your browser, these are some of the things you should do.

  • Click on the Windows button.
  • Search for Twitch
  • Open the first result.
  • Click the avatar in the top right corner of your page
  • Open Settings
  • Choose Notification settings
  • Open the On Twitch section
  • Enable live notification settings

As you can see, the process doesn’t differ too much from the one on the app, but you will need to open the site and handle things the other way.

You will have access to all the same settings and features, whether you are using the app or accessing the platform, and you will be able to scroll down through all the options quickly.

What To Do If Push Notifications Are Not Working?

One of the things most people with Twitch channels have experienced is not being able to get the notifications, and there are a few quick solutions to this.

If you are not receiving push notifications from your followers or channels you follow, then you will need to enable or disable some settings.

This is what you will need to do:

1. Reinstall the app

In case you are not receiving notifications from any channels, or you have trouble to log in every time you try to open the Twitch app, then you probably didn’t update it recently, and you need to go back to the original defaults or install it all over again.

If your app hasn’t been updated lately, you will not be able to receive mobile notifications or push notifications, no matter what happens, so make sure the updates are frequent.

Make sure to download the Twitch app specifically for your PC or laptop.

2. Reset your Notification settings

If you are sure you have had the push notifications setting enabled, but you still don’t seem to get them, you should try to reset it and do everything all over again.

Sometimes the platform doesn’t refresh too well, and you need to complete the same action and re-enter the information a few times before you are able to toggle them the way you want to.

3. Delete browser cache

In case you are using the Twitch platform through a Chrome or Mozilla browser, you maybe need to delete some browser cache to make everything work right.

Too much cache can interrupt your whole Twitch experience, so make sure you delete it frequently.


Should I enable Twitch notifications?

Whether you should enable the notifications or not depends solely on you, and you can choose settings that fit your idea of an efficient performance on the platform.

Can I disable Twitch mobile notifications?

Yes, you can disable mobile notifications for Twitch, and you can choose only one type of notification that seems to work the best for you.
