It’s time for content creators to give back to their supporters!
The new update includes additional emote slots, additional flair for higher tier subscribers, and a fleshed-out feature in the Channel Points.
The announcement has been confirmed in a tweet:
Showing next-level support for your favorite streamers just got even better.

“Showing next-level support for your favorite streamers just got even better.
New Tier 2 and Tier 3 benefits are here, including extra emotes, emote modifiers, and brand new Badge Flair to stand out in chat!”
Creators can also now add four more emotes to their Tier 2 and Tier 3 listings.
Prior to this update, each tier only had a single emote. It could only be unlocked if you reach the higher levels.
Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscribers can now enjoy unlimited access to Partner-selected modified emote filters. This feature is usually unlocked with Channel Points.
Partners can choose from Horizontal Flip, Grayscale, Pinch, Think, and Shades modifiers to allow viewer options in customizing the emotes.
An additional emote modifier filter will be granted for Tier 2 subscribers, with two filters for Tier 3.
It can be easily accessed by holding down on the said emote of choice.
A sub-menu will be shown in which you can apply the filters you want.
Platform partners and affiliates can also apply a badge flair for tier 2 and tier 3 subscribers. It will display on the channel’s Sub Badge to show as a badge of honor (meaning they support at a higher tier than others).
Twitch automatically applies a default star icon on Affiliate and Partner channels.
However, creators can design a custom flair to match their channel brand.
For a more extensive reading, Twitch introduced the new benefits for Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscriptions in an official blog post:
“It all starts with powering up the go-to feature for brand building: emotes. Partners will now have 4 more emote slots per tier for Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscribers by default. That means more opportunities for creators to show off their creativity and more ways to let higher-tier subs further stand out in their community.”
“To help Affiliates and Partners shine a light on their higher tier supporters, we’re excited to introduce Badge Flair! Badge Flair lets Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscribers get instantly recognized in chat for their next level support. Badge Flair is a design overlay that decorates the sub badge in chat and is applied automatically when enabled by the creator. By default, Twitch will provide a subscription star flair icon on every Affiliate and Partner channel but creators can also design custom flair that matches their channel brand.”
“Together these new features will help creators reward Tier 2 and Tier 3 subscribers on Twitch with more ways to express themselves with little sustained effort to manage these new benefits over time. That’s what next level love looks like!”
