Twitch’s latest feature allows one to relive the chat when one is watching archived streams.
Twitch hopes to bring live and archived content closer together by this feature. The feature is called Chat Replay and it’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks. The chat displayed will be a copy of what the streamer and the live audience witnessed while the show was live.
One wont miss anything as everything including sub-notifications, badges, etc. Moderated messages will remain hidden, however, and moderators can go back to delete ones they may have missed during the live shows.
The company has already begun capturing chat messages on new livestreams, and will be adding them to relevant archives in the next few days.
The feature was developed with help from the creator of ReChat, a browser extension which offered the same service.
