Discord, apart from being a community communication platform, also allows users to receive notifications from various social media platforms through third-party bots. This enables all members of Discord servers to stay updated with the latest information. This article will explain how to use the MEE6 bot to receive livestream notifications from a specified Twitch account.
Introduction to the MEE6 Bot
MEE6 is a versatile bot on Discord that offers over 30 plugins. Users can choose which plugins to enable based on their needs. Some plugins are available for free users, but they may have certain limitations and unlocking the full version may require upgrading to a premium account. Others are exclusively available to premium users.

Receiving Twitch livestream notifications, as described in this article, is one of the premium features.
Twitch Alerts plugin Setup Tutorial
Step 1: Invite MEE6 to your Discord server
First, go to the MEE6 website and invite the bot to your server. The invitation process for all bots is the same, but remember that your Discord account needs to have the “Manage Server” or “Administrator” permission for the server in order to invite the bot. Otherwise, you won’t be able to send an invitation.
Additionally, before inviting the bot, you need to log in to your Discord account. If you’re not logged in, the system will redirect you to the Discord login interface.
If you’re still unsure how to invite a Discord bot, this article titled “How to Invite Bots to Join Your Discord Server?” provides detailed instructions.
Step 2: Connect your Twitch account to your MEE6 account
To use the “Twitch Alerts” plugin for the first time, you need to connect your Twitch account to your MEE6 account. This allows MEE6 to receive livestream notifications from Twitch. Click the “Connect your Twitch account” button on the screen.

Setting up tracking for a new Twitch channel
Within the Twitch channel tracking menu, there are three options that need to be configured:
Option 1 – Twitch Alerts(Channel): Enter the Twitch channel you want to receive notifications for in this field. The system will display search results, and you need to select the account suggested by the system to complete the setup.
Option 2 – Message (Customized Message): Set the text message to be included in the notification. You can also specify which roles to mention (using “@” before the role name) or which channels to tag (using “#” before the channel name).
Option 3 – Post in channel (Publish to Which Channel): Choose the Discord channel where you want to see these latest post notifications. If you created a new Discord channel while accessing the MEE6 website backend, remember to press F5 to refresh the page or wait a few minutes before trying again. This way, the newly created Discord channel will appear as an option.
Box 4 in the image below – Save & Close: After configuring all three options, click “Save & Close” in the top right corner of the screen to complete the setup.
