  • You will see two options. “BetterTTV Emotes” and “BetterTTV GIF Emotes.”
  • Turn them both on.
  • Try writing “catJAM,” or any other emote name to ensure that all is well. You’re good to go!

After enabling the Better TTV extension, you are supposed to see all the emotes.

Which emotes, to be precise? Most probably, the famous ones are catJAM and OMEGALUL.

Most of the time, streamers and players also use the KEKW emote whenever there’s some fun going on.

And MonkaS is a scared frog used by the players if something bad is happening.

Why are Some Emotes showing and not Others?

That is because the streamer does not have the Better TTV extension installed in his streamer/channel.

Or, he has not enabled the emotes that you want to use. This may be the reason.

Because a streamer can only turn around 15 emotes on while using the Better TTV extension.

You may be using the emotes that he has missed or left out. Don’t worry; you can try your emotes on other channels.

How can you see what Better TTV emotes a streamer has enabled?

  • Look for a smiley face emote just beside the “Chat” option in a stream and click on it.
  • A whole list of emotes will be displayed that the streamer has enabled.
  • Find the one you like and enjoy. You’re good to go!
