How to make a poll on Twitch


GAMERS can interact with viewers on Twitch using the poll feature to share their opinions and vote with each other.

But how can you make use of this snazzy feature on the live video streaming service? Read on to find out.

How to do a poll on Twitch

Polls can be created by streamers for viewers to vote on – and they’re really changing the game in terms of interactivity.

They can be started at any time but only one poll can be run at once.

Streamers can gather feedback from their community and engage with them as they play.

They could even ask viewers what game to play next or how they think the previous game went.

Here’s how to start a poll yourself:

  1. Click on the Create a New Poll button on your Dashboard if you’ve never made one before.
    • If you have started one before, you’ll see two options – to make a New Poll or to view the results of your last one.
    • If you have the Creator Dashboard, you’ll have to add the Manage Poll quick action first under the Grow Your Community section.
  2. Next create a title – but make sure it’s short and sweet under 60 characters.
  3. After the title, add options for your viewers to vote on – you’ll need between two and five.
  4. Click the Start Poll button to make your voting live and watch the results roll in on your Dashboard.
  5. You’ll be able to see a real time breakdown of voters’ responses and have the option to end the poll early.
  6. Visit your poll results by clicking Vote Breakdown

Who can make a poll on Twitch?

Only broadcasters, editors or moderators can start polls on Twitch.

This means you need an affiliate or partner account.

An affiliate account is a status you reach when you’ve built up your Twitch community through consistent streaming.

A partner account is for branded and sponsored Twitch streamers.

As well as streamers, moderators and editors can create, manage and dete polls through certain commands in the chat such as /poll /endpoll /deletepoll.

What type of polls are there?

There are four special settings for a Twitch poll.

Allow Voting with Bits means viewers can make extra votes using Bits, rather than the standard single vote they would usually be granted.

You can set the amount of Bits needed for each additional vote.

Allow Voting with Channel Points is another way viewers can bag themselves an extra vote. You can also set how many Channel Points are needed for each of these.

Subscriber Votes Count 2x is a setting that means subscribers will be counted twice.

For each vote a subscriber makes, two points will be added to the option they choose.

The Duration setting sets a time limit on voting by restricting when the poll will close.
