How to Block Twitch Ads with Adblock

Twitch is one the most popular streaming websites on the web. Twitch has millions of viewers every day who tune in to the site to see their favorite streams. Twitch uses ads to generate revenue from its streams.

Because they make the platform’s profit, and also support content creators, these ads are crucial. Some advertisements can be annoying so many people prefer to disable them.

Adblock had blocked Twitch ads until 2020. However, many Twitch users complain that Adblock doesn’t work in 2020. I’ve discussed the best way to block Twitch ads.

Adblock blocks ads on Twitch for most users. However, AdBlock has been reported to not be working for Twitch by many users. AdBlock may not be able to block Twitch ads when it becomes outdated.

The extension is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla, Edge. Install this extension on the browser you use to access Twitch streaming without ads.


5: Ignore Twitch Ads in Android

Twitch offers an Android app. An Android smartphone can be used to watch streams via the Twitch App instead of using the browser.

Although there are numerous benefits to Twitch’s app, I want to highlight one that Twitch has not intended. A trick that you can use to get around Twitch ads on your android phone is all it takes.

Simply press the More option in the upper right corner to see an ad on Twitch. After that, you can immediately click on the back button. Doing this will immediately skip all ads on the live stream.

You will need an Android emulator like Bluestacks in order to install the Twitch application on your Windows PC. This will allow you to also use the trick on the PC.
