How to Allow Twitch Subscription Emotes on Discord Server
To allow the use of subscription emotes on a Discord server, you need to link your Twitch channel’s account to the Discord account and then create your own Discord server. We had already made a complete guide on how to do both steps at How to Link your Twitch account to Discord
Step 1: Make Sure you had already Link Your Twitch account to Discord
Open the Discord application on your PC, and Log in to your account. Click the “User Setting” icon next to your profile name and deafen icon
On the left menu, click the “Connections” menu. Check whether you already connect your Twitch account on Discord or not. If not, then sync your account first before preceding to the next step

If you can’t view the menu, then you haven’t already become Twitch Affiliate yet. You need to become an Affiliated streamer on Twitch first before you can get subscription emotes
Step 3: Wait for the Sync process to end
After syncing your Discord server to your Twitch channel account, Discord will automatically add them to your Discord Server if you have subscription emotes on your Twitch account. The syncing process can take up to 1 hour.
According to Discord Permission FAQ, you as a server creator don’t need to assign roles to yourself. You will always have the highest access on your Discord server
After syncing your account, you only need to wait for your subscribers to join your Discord server. You can make an announcement on your Twitch page and during the stream. Make sure you add “Discord Private Server” to your channel subscription perks
If your subscribers join your Discord server, they will be assigned roles based on their subscription status. You can selectively modify them if you want
Step 4: Allow usage of External Emotes on Your Discord Server
You can allow the use of external emotes on your discord server. It’s a nice addition outside of your Discord emotes and subscription emotes. Some Twitch streamers enable this feature on their private server. Just follow the step below to enable it:
1. Right-click your server profile
2. Click “Server Setting” then choose “Roles”.
3. Click the “Default Permissions” section
4. On the “Permissions” tab, scroll down until you can find “Use External Emoji”. You can use the search function to quicken the process

Why You Should Add Subscription Emotes on your Discord Servers
Adding subscription emotes on your discord server can help you as streamer build your community and make your channel emotes more popular among the Twitch users. This can increase the likelihood of them keep their subscription to your channel. There is no harm in adding it on your Discord server. It will be weird if they can’t use the subscription emotes on the Sub-Only Discord server
Since your subscribers already paid for the emotes, why can’t they use it on your Discord server anyway? Believe me, some of them will ask this feature on Day 1.
But what about if you’re not a streamer? What if you’re the viewer?
How to use Subscription Emotes on Discord Server as Twitch Subscribers
If you are a channel subscriber, you need to join the discord server after linking your account.
Open User Setting > Connection. You can view the channel list with the private Discord server that you have subscribed to on Twitch. Just click “Join Server”
As long you join their server, you can use the Twitch emotes on the Discord server as a channel subscriber.
