Full control of polls using the /poll command?


#1

The new on-platform /poll command is great, but it depends on a point-and-click interface, which means it’s impossible to have the channel bot create the poll. I’d like to be able to have my bot automatically create a poll, perhaps based on other information it has available; if it could be done by sending chat commands, it could do something like this:

/poll create
/poll question Who’s the best?
/poll response I am
/poll response You are
/poll duration 1
/poll start

If there’s already a way to do this, that’s awesome, and can someone please point me to the documentation?


#2

We are waiting for Twitch to offer an API so that bots can do this via a call rather than some clunk via chat commands.

Right now there is zero third party API support for the new chat features such as polls, and channel points.


#3

Either would be fine. HTTP API or chat commands, I don’t mind.
