Live Role Notifications

For beginners

Live Role Notifications allows you to set up automatic announcements whenever someone in your server goes live. These notifications also respect the filter role, if one is set.

Live Role Notifications only announces for members who have their Twitch account connected to Discord. You can connect your Twitch under Discord Settings -> Connections.

For advanced users

*Live Role Notifications relies completely on the user having a purple "streaming" status; Streamcord does not directly contact Twitch for information on whether or not the user is actually live.

**Instead of adding notifications for each individual streamer, Live Role Notifications automatically works for every streamer who is eligible to receive the live role.
