If you cannot watch your favorite streamer on Twitch, many utilize the Twitch VOD system. The only problem was users were missing out on one of the best things of Twitch, the chat. Yesterday Twitch introduced Chat Replay, a new function that is integrated with the VOD system.
Over the next few weeks chat will be gradually added to recorded videos. Chat Replay will include all subscriber notifications, emotes and badges as they happened during the live broadcast.
Below you can see what Chat Replay looks in regular and theater mode.
