To rewatch some of your favorite moments from a Twitch stream, you can now clip a section from it, that allows you to download the clips which you can share on other platforms.

Many Twitch streamers on the platform are known to stay live for hours on end, which can make it hard for viewers to rewatch those bizarre or unexpected moments just by scrolling through the VOD after the stream.

The site’s clip feature finds a solution to this issue by allowing viewers to take short snippets from someone’s stream, which are then accessible via a separate URL. From creating clips on Twitch, to where to find your saved ones and even how to download them, we’ve got everything you need to know right here.
