Twitch’s new 'clips' feature lets you share your favorite streaming moments

New, 3 comments

The next time you see an amazing goal while watching Rocket League on Twitch, you'll be able to easily share it with your buddies. Today the streaming service is introducing a new feature called "clips," which lets viewers record 30-second snippets of a stream, which they can then share on places like Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit. The tool appears to be pretty simple to use; you click the new clips button in the video player, and it will automatically save the previous 25 seconds of the stream, as well as the next five seconds. You'll then be able to share the clip as a link, which will also connect viewers back to the original broadcaster.

Right now, clips are only available for select viewers watching "partnered channels," but Twitch says that the feature will be rolling out to everyone over the next few weeks.
