When Will Your Emote be Approved?

If you are a Twitch partner with no marks against your account, your emotes will be approved immediately. Otherwise, it could take 36 hours or longer for it to we reviewed. In the event that it is rejected, read our post, What to Do if Your Twitch Emote was Rejected.

How Many Emotes Can You Submit at a Time

You can submit any number of remotes that you are currently allotted to have based on the number of your subscribers. Don’t forget you can also add a Tier 2 and Tier 3 emote for subscribers who are willing to pay a higher subscription monthly.

Celebrate with Your Community

When your remote is approved, let your community know. Posted in your Discord server, point it out on your next stream, and shout it out on your socials. Not only could this generate excitement, but you may also attract a few new subs to your channel.

Talking to your community about your emotes in advance will help you come up with new ideas that they are guaranteed to enjoy. Remember that they are your target audience and you need to cater to them while also staying true to your own branding.
