How to find your Twitch watch time:
If you love watching streams on Twitch, you would probably want to know how to check your watch time in total or for a specific Twitch channel. Tracking watch time has created competitiveness among Twitch viewers who are competing to be the most loyal fans of their favorite streamers, especially viewers that mod for streamers.
Twitch unfortunately doesn’t offer a native feature that lets you track your watch time. Nevertheless, there are workarounds with which you can help you track your watch time on Twitch.
There are two ways you can see your watch time on Twitch: with third-party Google Chrome extension tool, Twitch extension and !watchtime command (we’ll explain what a !watchtime command is later in the post) streamers can add to their streams so viewers can check their watchime.
We’ll go over the options in detail below.
Watchtime Tracker is a Chrome extension that can help you track your activity on Twitch and YouTube.
The tracker allows you to track your live streams watch time per streamer for Twitch. While there are several options if you want to track your watch time on Youtube, you have the option to track:
You can also sync your statistics across browsers and devices.
Another way you can find your watchtime on Twitch is by using the !uptime & !watchtime extension on Twitch.
The extension shows the stream's uptime, and more importantly, it allows viewers will also be able to see the time since they personally started watching the stream. The !uptime & !watch time extension is similar to the !uptime chat bot command, for users familiar with it.
The good news is that you can also hide both the stream’s uptime and your time spent watching the stream if you want.
However, the !uptime & !watchtime extension enables the use of Bits and is available for partner and affiliate channels that have Bits enabled. With the Bits functionality, viewers can share their watch time with the stream for 10 Bits and include a message in the stream chat to add some extra shout-out.
A !watchtime command is a function streamers put in their streams so viewers are able to see their watch times on their streams.
Putting a !watchtime command is a transparent way for viewers to be able to see their watch time and engage in a fun competition over who has spent more time watching a stream.
At the same time, if you are a passionate Twitch streamer who wants to build a community, you would want to add a !watchtime command on your channel because it can increase their overall watch.
After a streamer has put a !watchtime command in their stream, you can check your watch time by typing !wachtime in the stream chat.
So, if you are a streamer yourself or you are just interested in how to enable this function on Twitch, we’ll go over how to set up a !watchtime command using a chatbot.

To set up the watch command on Twitch, you need to use a third-party chatbot, such as StreamElements. StreamElements has a watch time command built into their software so it’s really convenient to enable views to track their watch time.
We’ll show you the steps on how to do it.
Another way you can set up a watchtime command on your stream channel is with the Streamlabs Cloudbot. The steps for setting it up are pretty much the same as the Stream Elements chatbot:
Now viewers can check their watch time on your stream using the !watchtime command in chat. You can also add !watchtime to your Twitch title so that viewers know that you have watch time enabled when they enter your stream.
