How to Cheer (bits) ?

You can support your favorite streamer by buying bits on Twitch and thus encourage them (in French “bits”). That’s basically what bits are for.

Here is simply how to get them, and especially how to give them to a streamer since that is the reason for Bits.

  • To buy Bits on PC, you can use the “Buy Bits” button that you will find at the top right of each page, next to your avatar.

  • Then choose the number of Bits you want to buy. Note that by buying a large number of Bits, you will have a reduction, it can be interesting.

  • Finally, in the window that opens, if you have defined a payment method in your account settings, click on Complete purchase and your account will be supplied with Bits!

Note: Depending on the number of bits you buy, you get a special badge (see picture).

Buy bits on PC

To buy Bits on PC, you can use the “Buy Bits” button that you will find at the top right of each page, next to your avatar. Then choose the number of Bits you want to buy. Note that by buying a large number of Bits, you will have a reduction, it can be interesting. Finally, in the window that opens, if you have defined a payment method in your account settings, click on Complete purchase and your account will be supplied with Bits!

Also note that you can change the payment method if you prefer to pay with your Paypal account, your credit card… and it is possible to buy Bits with Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, PaysafeCard, via a bank transfer, etc, etc.

The other way to buy Bits is when you are on a Twitch channel, look in the chat area at the bottom left and click on the diamond icon. This is where you can send your Bits, but you also have the option to buy them. By clicking on the “Get Bits” button, you will find the purchase options, and the procedure is exactly the same as the one just seen.

Buy Bits on mobile

It’s the same, launch the Twitch application, go to any channel, display the Chat, click on the diamond-shaped icon at the bottom right, then finally on “Buy Bits”. Select the number of Bits or amount you wish to spend, and you will be offered to pay with the default payment method of your Google account (Android phone) or Apple account (iPhone).

Note that sometimes you will have the possibility to get Bits for free by watching an advertisement, personally I never had the opportunity to do this and it seems to be dependent on your region, which is easy to circumvent with a VPN but we will not dwell on it.

Once you have purchased your Bits, you will be able to send them to a streamer, simply via Chat. Click on the diamond icon, choose an emoticon (any emoticon) and select the number of Bits you want to send. It is of course possible to enter a custom value, 500 for example, and add a message that will be visible in the chat with the emoticon you have chosen. You can even mix the pleasures and add several emoticons, why not!

In any case, know that for each Bit you give to a streamer, he will receive 1 cent ($0.01), so for 100 Bits, $1, for 1000 Bits, $10, etc.

There you go, you are now unbeatable on Bits, Twitch’s currency, you know how to get them and how to send them to your favorite streamer in the in the Philippines and elsewhere.
