In a new Twitter post, the Twitch support account shared the news explaining that it will be testing the new feature as well as ‘remind me’ and ‘watch trailer’ buttons next month on some channels.

“Over the next month, some viewers may see 3 new buttons on live channel pages: Rewind the Stream, Remind Me, and Watch Trailer,” reads the post. “This experiment will only inform future features and the buttons will be removed after its completion.”

A Twitch Rewind feature has been requested by viewers in the past, however, the announcement has raised some concerns from Twitch streamers who are concerned about their safety.

Under the Post, Popular IRL Streamers jackenbacklive said: “May we have an option to disable this? For security purposes of IRL streams. Thanks!”

Many streamers, as JackenBeckLive pointed out, have ways to protect themselves. This rewind feature will make it so that viewers can go back and watch particular parts of the stream, which can cause some problems. However, it has been confirmed that the feature can be disabled by setting VOD to Unpublished by default.

It was recently revealed that Twitch kept a “do not ban” list that also included a long list of streamers’ proceeds to avoid penalizing large streamers after a massive leak and security breach.
