Add a Legacy Notification

This guide will show you how to set up automatic announcements for when a specific streamer goes live.

Legacy notifications will reach End of Life on November 4, 2021. We strongly recommend that you use Spyglass notifications instead.

Set up your notification channel

1. Create a channel for stream announcements if you haven't already.

2. Edit your channel's settings, and go to the "Permissions" tab.

3. From the "Roles/Members" selection, add Streamcord.

Add Streamcord to the channel's permission overrides.

4. Allow Streamcord to have the following permissions in the channel:

  • View Channel

  • Send Messages

  • Embed Links

  • Attach Files

  • Add Reactions

  • Use External Emoji

  • Mention @everyone, @here, and All Roles

Give Streamcord the needed permissions.

5. Click "Save changes".

If you want to confirm that Streamcord is set up correctly, you can run a command like !twitch ping to verify.

Add the notification from the dashboard

1. Go to in your browser.

2. Log in with Discord.

3. Choose your server from the list.

4. Under the "Stream notifications" section, click "Add notification".

Click the "Add notification" link.

5. Fill in the streamer's name, choose your announcement channel, and type a custom message. In this example, we're adding a notification for summit1g in the #live-streams channel.

Enter your streamer, channel, and custom message.

6. Click the "Add notification" button.

Congrats, you just set up your first stream notification! You can also experiment with different settings and change up the custom message.
