You can also configure the extension to send you a notification when one of your favorite streams goes online. Extension was developed by Mike Chambers. Design by Ben Griffith. Once the extension has been installed it will place a small monitor / TV icon on the top right of your browser window. Open the options tab by right clicking the icon, and selecting options. Once the options tab is open, enter your Twitch.tv user name, and click save.

  • (2020-08-06) Łukasz Pęcak: Not working anymore because of new twitch OAuth policy. Sadly its my favourite extension
  • (2020-08-04) Ant _: This extension is great and I love it! There has however been a bug where I can't save my username in options. I type in my name and I press save but nothing happened at all. It says that I have not chosen my username and therefore not showing the live accounts that I follow. I have deleted the extension and reinstall it with no success. I have also tried other things but with the same results. Hope you get it fixed asap. Thanks.
  • (2020-08-04) Jakob Hjelm: Used work perfectly. Simple, clean and to the point. However, after re-installing Windows today I can no longer save the settings. DevTools on the settings page shows 'onUserInfoError : {"error":"Unauthorized","status":401,"message":"OAuth token is missing"}' so I assume Twitch changed something in their API, causing the current version of Twitch Live not to be able to access the follower lists anymore. :(
  • (2020-08-02) aquilon1s: For some reason can`t add my account. Win 10
  • (2020-08-01) Kyle M: Used to work so well then when I switched computers and went to add everything back, it wont save my settings now and the extension is basically useless
  • (2020-07-31) Gabriel Bachega: Its really good but doesn't work anymore
  • (2020-07-30) Mystyc Cheez: Doesn't work anymore
  • (2020-07-29) mreagan: Does not work anymore. I've used it for good 2-3 years but I can't anymore since it stopped working recently.
  • (2020-07-29) Heros Hajetschek: Great extension, but doesn't let me save my username anymore so it doesn't work.
  • (2020-07-27) Samuel Zucco: I've been using this extension for years. Recently got a new PC and for some reason it stopped working. Won't accept my user name in the settings so I can't see when someone is live. Such a shame because I use this extension on the daily.. Love it apart from this problem..
  • (2020-07-26) Alex Gubsky: Can't save twitch name in settings, win10.
  • (2020-07-18) Erik Pettersson: Love it! but dont work anymore, Fix it please :(
  • (2020-07-13) Ella Threlfall: it is great when it works. unfortunately it currently has an issue where it does not save options. so you can't tell it your twitch username, so it can't find out which channels you follow, making it completely non-functional.
  • (2020-07-11) SKbird: can you fix it? Definitely a top 3 extension when it actually works
  • (2020-07-09) Bryon Allgood: EDIT: Currently changing my 5 star to a 1 star because as of patch 1.87, the extension is broken. It will no longer save your username and thus does not work. If you have it saved prior, nothing changes, but I had uninstalled my extensions and when I got this one back I came into this issue. Apparently this has been an issue for about 2 months now. Please fix. Amazing way to quickly check who is live and see the viewer count. Easy way to know if something special is going on or just who's on in general. Wouldn't watch twitch without this extensions
  • (2020-07-09) Iron Light: A simple extension that does its job well. No needless features. Not giving 5 stars only because sometimes it just refuses to load my username in options
  • (2020-06-24) Smart Fridge: I'm having a problem when i enter my username nothing happens.
  • (2020-04-16) Peter Šulek: Can you implement option to not show number where live streams are zero ? Im still looking at that blue zero! Or maybe zero will be gray a more than zero will be blue? Thanks!
  • (2020-04-13) ABDULLAH OTEIF: twitch.t
  • (2020-02-18) Supernova Gaming: I thought this was a thing that could make me go live
  • (2020-02-05) Peter Anderson: Any chance of more features being added? An option for dark css theme perhaps?
  • (2019-12-11) 飛飛: 簡單 但運作良好
  • (2019-11-14) Violet-n-red: works well, looks neat, the only thing i wish was changed: instead of displaying stream title in popup, show it under channel's name. there's plenty of empty space anyway.
  • (2019-11-01) GreY: Very usefull app !
  • (2019-10-24) Matthew Estes: Twitch Now is a fancier alternative that *mostly* does the same things. However, I like this one because it lets you input the Twitch account you're using, instead of making you log in. I have multiple accounts I use, and the one I'm logged into isn't always the one I want to see the live channels from.
