Viewing & Displaying Twitch Chat Messages

When streaming to Twitch from Switcher Studio, you can view the stream chat comments directly in the app. You can also show chat comments onscreen as part of your stream. This integration makes it easier to manage and engage with your Twitch chat comments in real-time.

Note: When using an iPhone as the main switcher device, it must be in vertical mode to access many of the features/tabs, including Comments.

Viewing Twitch Chat Comments in Switcher Studio

Once you have started your livestream, you can view incoming comments as follows:

Accessing Comments

  • Tap the Live Comments tab (speech bubble icon) in the tab bar.

  • At the bottom of the Live Comments pane, there will be text that says "Connected to Twitch" followed by the name of the stream.

  • As stream viewers comment, they will appear in chronological order, with the oldest comments on top and the newest comments at the bottom.

Note: There is a very slight delay between when the original comment is posted on the stream, and when it appears in the app.

Displaying Twitch Chat Comments

  • To display a comment, simply tap on the comment you would like to display.

  • To remove the displayed comment, tap on the highlighted comment. The comment will no longer be displayed in the broadcast.

Starring/Favoriting Twitch Chat Comments

Switcher Studio includes an option to star your favorite comments to make it easier to view them. This is especially useful if you plan on referencing or responding to specific comments while live. This is an internal tool that is not visible to the audience.

  • Tap the star on the comment you want to add as a favorite. The space around the star will turn blue.

  • To view the comments you have marked as a favorite, tap the star in the top right corner.

  • To remove a star, simply tap the star next to the comment again. The blue highlight will go away. The comment will no longer appear in the favorites section.
