[Test] Monthly Recap
We're experimenting with a new perk for Subscribers on Twitch: Monthly Recap! This summary shows personalized stats on select channels such as top clips, most spammed emotes, and more. It's just one more way to relive time well spent with your favorite creators and communities.

As always, we'd love to hear your feedback on this experiment!
This has been running for several months and I can say with full confidence that I don't care about it in any way, shape, or form. It provides me zero value. All it does is give me an annoying display on the page that I have to dismiss. I know that my subscriptions support the streamers I watch. I don't need Twitch to tell me every single time I load the page. Give me way to turn off these notifications permanently, or I will find a way to do it myself.
Looks like this is broken, the streamer I mod for was reported as streaming 0 minutes in June, however, he has definitely streamed nearly every day throughout June. He has designated me as an Editor on his dashboard and I can find all the streams he did.
The monthly recap is a great idea if it was personalized. Giving stats of what the streamer achieved is interesting, but since it is being heralded as see what "you did" this month with this channel. Maybe give how many times I commented, how many hours I watched, How many days I watched. Either that or change the advertising to say, "See what (channel name) did this month". It would be cool if I could see what I contributed, but it doesn't so, maybe change the promo.
As a viewer, I have zero interest in this feature. As a mod, I have zero interest in this feature. As an occasional streamer, I have zero interest in this feature. Give me a way to turn it off everywhere, please.
Hi again, now I tried the recap on another channel. The only thing related to me is how long I´ve been subscribed.
Which is basically nothing.
Was thinking it will give me more "me-related" stats, like how many chat messages I´ve sent or how much time I´ve watched, how many streams, how much I donated/gifted/cheered etc.
So far disappointing and absolutely irrelevant. Although having general stats about the channel is good, putting user related stats higher in your priority list would make much more sense.
Feedback: I got this on my channel and didn't decide to activate it, it just did. I had a viewer start listing off all the info and was surprised at all the info they had. I don't like it at all. It can be potentially harmful to streamers of all sizes when certain information like this is given out. Trolls can use that info against the streamer. And can put pressure on streamer if they aren't meeting the expectations of that viewer. I would really like to deactivate it but can't find any way to do so. It's one thing to do a recap on the subscriber's stats like in the yearly recap but to release info about the stream, number of streams, stream's chats, streamer's activity, subscriptions ect it isn't fair or right to the streamer to have that info display. I see this feature doing more harm than good.
Feedback : I'm unable to see my own stream recap report which would be a nice for creators to see their own kind of highligths of their content. As for recap as a viewer I found it useless. It's only pulling stats from that streamer while I was expection and hoping for a recap of my engagement with the channel.
- How much time I watched vs how much time was streamed
- How many chat messages sent
- What are the clips I made
- How many gifted subs I sent
- How many donation I sent
Personalize the recap to how involved he/she was in the stream. Will be more work but more beneficial in the long term.
Same as others. Got the email about my channel, but no recap is available.
One channel that I'm subbed to
Just got the "May" recap for my channel, and the "Top Clips from May" included clips from today...June 9th.
You're quite literally trying to qualify, quantify, and track relationships with this. It's invasive, unnecessary, and has the potential to be harmful. Strongly reconsider whether this is worth rolling out to everyone.
Page 3/8 is broken and besides how many months you've been subscribed to the channel on page 6/8, none of the other pages show viewer data related to the streamer's channel (just streamer-specific data like how many hours they streamed or how many chats were sent over the month by all chatters). Perhaps page 3/8 would have more viewer-specific data, but we can't see it. Top clips is a good inclusion though. Overall, fix the glitch on page 3/8 and add more viewer-specific data.
Love the idea of the monthly recap - got the e-mail for my most frequented channel, but there doesn't seem to be recap statistics for me on that channel - I even tried clicking around to no avail.
Hope it works for next month!
Actualizando ya puedo acceder a el aunque en mis suscripciones no me aparezca si puedo acceder cuando veo un directo y me aparece abajo la opción, también mis suscriptores la tienen y les ha gustado mucho y se sorprendieron mucho con sus estadísticas por lo que es una buena idea y a ellos les gustaría contar con esa ventaja siempre que se pueda
Same as others. Got the email about my channel, but no recap is available.
One channel that I'm subbed to, I DO see the thing about recap, and it worked, (pg 3/8 blank at that time)..
Either we have glitches, or the email needs a bit of work as to who actually has the recaps.
(I do like the concept though)
Нет проблем с функционалом Ежемесячного обзора, выглядит прикольно, но чего-то не хватает, например: не только личную статистику, но и статистику сообщений каждого стрима который был за месяц, ещё какую функцию за баллы канала используют чаще всего. Для автора канала очень удобно наблюдать статистику смайликов; на счёт общей суммы сообщений - считаю что нужно добавить в обзор статистику сообщений на каждый отдельный стрим, чтобы лучше понимать свою аудиторию, не только за месяц.
К остальной статистике нет вопросов. Со стороны Платного подписчика нет какого-либо различия, так что сравнивать смысла нет, всё тоже самое, только статистика разная.
A good idea, but the second (or was it the 3rd?) page said "unable to get recap data", so I have no idea what was meant to be there.
I guess they were supposed to show my own statistics, like how many chat messages I sent or what emotes I used the most? I guess? But none of that was working unfortunately, but as I´ve seen I am not the only one.
I also actually got an email about the recap for a channel that does not have recaps or it just doesn´t show the link...
I think it is a good idea for subscribers, but it should not be mainly general stats, but most of it should be personal - like messages I´ve sent (or how many in total, how many "this month"), what emotes etc. and only after these have maybe some general statistics, because it really does not give any added value to see that in total this month 12345 chat messages were sent from everyone (it is a nice statistic, don´t get me wrong, just not the first thing I would open MY recap for.
Maybe even add some features like most messages I´ve sent (e.g. which specific stream I´ve sent the most messages), specific stream where I´ve sent the most emotes etc.
So far so good. The default "size" on my laptop screen though was way too large. The "slides" were overlapping the menu at the bottom making both impossible to read. I shrunk the screen size (zoomed out) and it looked fine. It would be great if the CLIPS page had a link to "how to create a clip" so that it would encourage the viewer to make clips. Last thing is: don't know how to find the recap except through the "Notifications" --> Subscriptions --> See Recap. Is there a way to find it elsewhere?
Every sub that has the recap option for me just has a blank page saying "unable to get recap data" for my stats. I also never received yearly recap.
As a viewer and streamer, I think this is great for newcomers on a channel but useless for the involved viewers.
So I don't understand why "This is a new experimental feature available to subscribers" only.
