How to get your Twitch Recap 2021
Twitch Recaps are back for 2021, giving streamers and viewers a comprehensive overview of their viewing habits and interactions with the platform. However, you may need to do a few extra steps to acquire your Twitch Recap.
The Twitch Recap will show you who you watched the most, which emotes you used the most, how many messages you sent, and other statistics. There will be statistics for streamers’ following, viewers, and other growth measures.
Twitch Recap works similarly to what music streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music offer for its users, providing a breakdown of who you listened to the most.
Here’s how to earn your own Twitch Recap for 2021, whether you’re a streamer or just a chat lurker.
How to get Twitch Recap (2021)
The recaps are emailed to the email address associated with your Twitch account. However, there could be a couple of reasons why you haven’t received your email yet.
Twitch said on December 15 that Twitch Recaps would be sent out soon, but they may not all arrive at the same time, so yours may arrive later.
Another reason could be that your Twitch email preferences have changed, and you need to alter them.
How to receive Twitch Recap email
1. Sign up for Twitch
2. Go to the Notifications tab in the settings menu.
3. Scroll to the bottom of the list under “By Email.”
4. Allow ‘Marketing’ emails to be sent.
5. When your Twitch Recap is ready, you should receive it.
Streamer or Viewer recap?
Another issue that some users have encountered is receiving a viewer recap instead of a streamer recap, or vice versa.
If you’re both a streamer and a watcher, it’s unclear if Twitch will send you two emails or just one. Some have hypothesized that the streamer recap will only be available to Twitch affiliates and partners.
Check your spam folder as well, in case the Twitch email has been marked as undesired rubbish by your email provider!
