Following And Unfollowing A Twitch Channel

The process of following and unfollowing a Twitch channel is relatively the same. It’s also very easy to do, as users go through it multiple times a day, so it has to be simple and not time-consuming.

Here are the steps in their respected order showing you how to do it:

  1. Open Twitch in your browser of choice and sign in to your account.
  2. Find the channel you wish to follow or unfollow. You can do this using the Twitch search system.

  3. Next to the name of the channel, you’ll see the follow button. If you click it, you’ll start following the channel, and the notifications button will appear as well. You can use it to toggle notifications on and off with ease.

You are now following the channel, and unfollowing it is just as easy.

Simply click the same button once more, which should now be in the shape of a heart.

Twitch channel Unfollow button

Don’t confuse this button with the one for subscribing or unsubscribing to a channel. Unfollowing a Twitch channel will not cancel your active Twitch subscription.

You can always re-follow a channel, regardless of when you unfollowed it or how many times you did it.


Now you know how to follow and unfollow channels on Twitch. Keep in mind that unfollowing a channel doesn’t notify a streamer about the action, but following does.

Sometimes, the following notification will be displayed on the center of the screen so other viewers will be able to see it, but this depends on the streamer’s layout and settings.
