Following And Unfollowing A Twitch Channel

The process of following or unfollowing a Twitch channel is effectively the same. It is also very easy to do, as users might perform it multiple times daily, so it needs to be simple and quick.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to pursue a channel.

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

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

You are currently tracking the channel. Stopping tracking is equally effortless.

Simply click the same button again. It should now be in the shape of a heart.

Twitch channel Unfollow button

Don’t confuse this button with the one used to subscribe to or unsubscribe from 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 have done so.


You now 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 one does.

Sometimes, the notification will be exhibited at the midpoint of the screen so other viewers will be able to see it, but this depends on the streamer’s arrangement and settings.
