How to Fix Discord Twitch Sub Role Not Working

Your Twitch sub is primarily not working on Discord due to the failure to authorize your Twitch account on Discord. Apart from that, bug and error issues on Discord or the faulty browser you’re using for running Discord might result in Discord Twitch integration not working.

You must have your Discord and Twitch accounts linked to make the sub role work. But sometimes, it takes a while to link.

Pro Tip: Before Discord can allot the role based on which user is subbed on Twitch, create the role first.

Most of the time, I see people skip the basic and essential fixes, and that’s because they don’t think this will work for them.

But trust me, for the most part, your problem can be solved by implementing basic fixes. You must apply the preliminary fixes first and the secondary fixes later.

I have researched both the problem and the probable solutions on how to link Twitch to Discord without facing any issues.

In this article, we will walk through 5 practical solutions to solve your issue. So, make sure to apply them one after another and fix your problem once and for all.

Here are the 5 working solutions to fix the Discord Twitch sub role not working:

Solution 1: Authorize your Twitch on Discord

Generally, users face problems with their Twitch sub role not working on Discord because the server owner failed to link them perfectly.

So, before performing anything, make sure the linking between Discord and Twitch is properly connected.

Here are the quick steps you must follow to authorize your Twitch account to your Discord:

  • Open the Discord desktop application or the browser one. Input your credentials accurately.
  • Select Settings and move to Connections from the left window panel. discord-user-settings
  • Look for the Twitch application and ensure the Display on Profile option is enabled. display-on-profile
  • Click on the Twitch icon that will redirect you to Log in to Twitch window on your browser. log-in-to-twitch
  • Enter your credentials correctly and confirm the authorization. When the linking is done between Twitch and Discord, a screen will appear saying, Connected your Twitch account to Discord. connected-your-twitch-account-to-discord
  • Open Discord, and you’ll find your Twitch account is connected under the Connections twitch-account-is-connected-under-the-connections

Thus you’ll quickly authorize your Twitch account to your Discord. See if the problem is gone for good.

Note: Sometimes, it can take time to complete the authorization. So, have patience.

Solution 2: Make a Clear Removal

If the problem persists no matter what you do, remove the Twitch integration from Discord this time. Leave it for 5 minutes and then link them again.

Here are the steps on how you can remove Twitch from Discord and link them again:

  • Launch Discord and go to Settings. discord-user-settings
  • Navigate to Connections and click on the cross (×) on the right side of Twitch. Connections
  • Select Disconnect, and thus your Twitch account is successfully disconnected from Twitch. disconnected-from-twitch
  • Launch the Twitch app or open it in your browser.
  • Sign in to your account and click on the profile icon in the top right corner of your screen. sign-in-to-your-account
  • Click Settings and move to the Connections twitch-settingstwitch-connections
  • Scroll down until you find Other Connections. Click on the Disconnect button if you find it connected. But if Discord is not associated, close Twitch. other-connections
  • Relaunch Discord and navigate to Settings > Connections. See if the Display on Profile option is enabled. display-on-profile
  • Click on the Twitch icon, which will redirect you to Log in to Twitch window on your browser.
  • Enter your credentials and confirm the authorization. You’ll see a screen appears saying, Connected your Twitch account to Discord.
  • Return to Discord and see your Twitch account is connected under the Connections twitch-account-is-connected-under-the-connections

I hope your problem is solved by now. Yet if the Twitch sub isn’t showing on Discord or the Twitch sub server not shown in Discord persists, move to the next one.

Solution 4: Use A Different Web Browser

If you are navigating through a browser, I suggest trying a different browser. Some of the cases we have seen are mitigated by using other gaming browsers or regular browsers.

So, go and hit one of those to see if the issue is resolved.

Solution 5: Contact Discord

If none of the solutions successfully fix the issue, leave a Tweet, as Discord is pretty active on Twitter. Otherwise, you can contact Support (Twitch) and ask questions about what to do if Discord and Twitch integration is not working.
