Shoutouts on Twitch are a great way to honor and support other content creators in your stream. Our Shoutout alerts let you amplify that effect with an additional alert that appears as soon as a Shoutout is activated in your chat. This guide will show you how to set them up in a few simple steps.

What are Twitch Shoutouts?

By using the /shoutout command for a channel of your choice, you can send your viewers an individual notification to follow that specific channel. The streamer who received your Shoutout will also see a notification in the Twitch Activity Feed. Read more about Shoutouts in the Twitch FAQ.
