If you have never seen it before, Twitch is a safe haven for all gamers to watch some great streams. They can be anything from a first time play through, to a new world record being set. Anyone who watches can also take part in the live chatroom on the side, which has just been given a nice upgrade.

Previously on Twitch, if you missed a live stream you could go back and watch the recording, but the chat would be lost in the void. Now, the rules have changed, thanks to the introduction of Chat Replay. When you watch any video that was pre-recorded, the original chat will appear on the side as if you were part of the initial experience. Monitors will still be able to view these chats and take out anything they deem inappropriate.

Check out Twitch’s Chat Replay FAQ for any other information you’d like to know.
