If you missed a stream and wanted to watch it via highlight or VOD later on, you did not get the full experience. Let's face it, for as terrible as the Twitch chat can be in many cases, there are still times where smaller streams have a chat that you enjoy. Sadly, VODs and highlights don't include that part of the experience. However that has all changed now as Twitch has finally added in Chat Replay to all recorded videos.

This new feature will be immediately familiar to those that used the Rechat browser extension. In fact, I am under the impression that Twitch hired the developer of that extension to work on this as an official Twitch feature.

Still not sure how this works? Seriously? Alright fine, just check out this Chat Replay FAQ then.
