How to Set Up Stickers
Give your fans high-fidelity stickers to place directly on your stream in exchange for bits. It's a ridiculously fun way to collect bits and pull viewers into the action.
Viewers react by adding stickers to your stream that appear to everyone watching right where they're placed. And since each sticker is a scarce, unique item, stickers placed on your channel transfer to you so you can spread the love to other streamers.

To start, update to the latest version of OBS, Xsplit, StreamLabs (SLOBS), or any streaming software that supports browser sources.
Step 1: Install Stickers on Twitch
First, Install Stickers by dot from the Twitch Extension Discovery page.
Step 2: Configure Your Streaming Software
From the My Extensions tab, click the cog wheel icon to open the Configure panel.
Copy the URL in the Configure panel. This is the link to display stickers as a browser source.
Open your streaming software and create a new browser source.
Paste the URL copied from the Configure panel and set the exact same dimensions as your base canvas resolution.
Set the FPS to 60 (to ensure that animations run smoothly), check "Refresh browser when scene becomes active," and delete the default CSS.
Finally, make sure the Stickers source is set as the top-most source (or layer) in every scene and fills the screen completely.
Step 3: Configure the Stickers Extension
Return to your extensions page in Twitch (Dashboard > Extensions > My Extensions).
Select "Manage Permissions" at the top of the Installed extensions section.
Under Stickers by dot, ensure that all of the permissions are granted.
Finally, click the Activate dropdown under Stickers by dot and select "Set as Overlay 1" to activate Stickers.
That's it! Stickers placed on your stream will now appear to your viewers in real-time on all devices.
Step 4: Add a Chat Command (optional but neat)
If you run one of the popular Twitch chat bots like Nightbot or Fossabot, add a
!stickers command to introduce Stickers to your audience.
