How To Subscribe On Twitch App

Since its inception in 2011 Twitch has grown exponentially, and in the most recent years it has taken huge strides into making it possible for streamers to have multiple ways to interact with viewers, subs, VIP’s, Twitch prime… list goes on. Now, being a subscriber gets you a certain number of benefits. You get an icon next to your name, access to emotes specific to the streamer and can talk in chat when it enters sub more.

There’s many more but that is different for every streamer as they often want to incentivise becoming a sub, they make money, build their stream, and it’s a great way to support streamers that you enjoy watching. And though the Twitch app isn’t always working, most of the time it’s pretty reliable – and here’s how you can sub to your favourite streamers.

How to subscribe on twitch app

While not obvious you can subscribe to your favourite streamer from your twitch app. Something to bear in mind is that Twitch prime does not work on the app but can still be done on mobile, we’ll go over that too!


First things, first, make sure you have the app installed. Once done open it up and log in to your twitch account. If you do not have a twitch account there will be an option to make one.

Next, navigate to the streamer you want to subscribe through either through the following tab if you follow the streamer or use the search icon at the top.

Once on the streamers channel page there will be a subscribe button to click, nice and obvious, can’t miss it. If there is no subscribe button there, then it is a channel that cannot be subscribed too. Note that this can be done either from the live streaming page while the streamer is live or on the streamers profile, so you are still able to do it even if they are offline.

Next and finally select the subscribe button again after being notified the different benefits there are to subscribing to that specific streamer and it will ask you to pay using twitch tokens. If you do not have any then an option will appear for purchasing more. Once purchased use those tokens for your sub and you’re done! Enjoy your sub to your favourite streamer!

Amazon prime

Subscribing with Amazon prime is a little annoying to do on mobile… So, the way it’s done is to essentially get the normal twitch site up but on your mobile. So, we need to open a browser and navigate to


On Iphone at this point you need to select the lower case and upper case A. This will give you a dropdown menu where you can “Request Desktop Website”. This will bring up the desktop site and can be used as such. Navigate to your favourite streamer who you want to use your monthly prime sub on and use the subscribe button then the prime subscribe option.


Much the same as the Iphone this is still done by navigating to the desktop version of the website.

Once on site select the three dots in the top right corner and select the “Desktop site” option. This will bring you to the usual desktop site and you can subscribe as you would from a desktop. Navigate to the streamer you would like to use your prime sub on and select the subscribe button. Then the prime sub option from there.


Too conclude this is very straight forward if you would like to subscribe the usual way, there’s just the added step of using the twitch tokens. I’m not entirely sure why this is but I have a feeling it’s because of some restrictions with payment when done through mobile devices. Either way it’s nice and simple. When it comes to Amazon prime however it’s a little more complex, but we have a nice work around that I’ve mentioned above to get you to where you want to go.

Enjoy your sub to your favourite streamer and get back to watching!
