The !skip command is used to skip the currently playing song in the StreamElements mediarequest queue. This command is useful for streamers and moderators who want to quickly move to the next song in the queue.


To use the !skip command, simply type it in the chat:


Note: This command will only work if there's a song currently playing in the mediarequest queue. If no song is playing, an error message will be displayed.

  1. Go to the Bot section
  2. Find the !skip command in the command list
  3. Adjust the permission settings as needed (e.g., Moderator only, Everyone, etc.)
