How to Connect your Twitch Channel to Discord

2. Under your User Settings head to Connections.
3. Connect your Twitch account to your Discord account by pressing on the Twitch icon tile and logging into your Twitch account.
How to Integrate Twitch for Streamers
You can either create a sub-only Discord server for your Twitch channel, or you can create a sub-only channel (or two) in your server. To get started, you first need to connect Twitch into your server following the How to Connect your Twitch Channel to Discord steps above.
After your Twitch is connected to your Discord, now you can integrate Twitch into your server.
1. Navigate to your server and press on the server name to pull up a drop down menu. You can also right-click on the server name.
2. Press on Server Settings and then head to Integrations.
3. Follow the instructions on this page to integrate your Twitch into your Discord server!
NOTE: This is only available for Twitch Partners or Affiliates, if your Twitch channel does not currently have a subscription option you will not be able to integrate your Twitch into your Discord server.
After you’ve integrated your Twitch channel, you can edit your integration settings. Your subscribers list is synced automatically by the system, however, you can always run a manual Sync.
You can also change how long of a grace period a user has until they lose the subscriber role in your server or you can even kick a user if the subscriber role is lost. To do this, press on the Remove Role option and select Kick instead.
You'll also find a new permissions role has been auto-created specifically for Twitch subs after integration. These roles will be named Twitch Subscriber, Twitch Subscriber: Tier 1, Twitch Subscriber: Tier 2, and Twitch Subscriber: Tier 3.
You can rename these roles, as well as adjust their permissions under Server Settings > Roles, and even change the colors of the role. Since this role is automatically managed by the Twitch integration, you can't manually assign or delete members from it.
NOTE: If you have Rule Screening set up for your server for new users, they can by-pass this requirement and join a server if they are subscribed through Twitch.
Twitch integration for Viewers
If you’ve subscribed or been gifted a subscription to a Twitch streamer and you want to access their Discord server, the first thing you need to do is make sure your Twitch account is connected to your Discord account by following the steps outlined under How to Connect your Twitch Channel to Discord.
After you’ve connected your Twitch to your Discord account, you’ll see all available Twitch channels that you’re currently subscribed to. There will be the Join option next to any server you haven’t joined yet.
