Twitch has announced a 2021 recap for streamers and viewers, just like they did last year. This feature, also known as “Twitch Wrapped,” allows users to view a complete summary of their activity on Twitch over the course of the year. This includes viewing habits, engagements, etc.
The data available in the recap is different depending upon the type of user. For streamers, it focuses on their progress but for viewers, it focuses on their preferences. Twitch is known to do this every year, and users really like it.
Music-streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, etc also offer such recaps to users. These recaps help them view and learn about their habits, choices, and actions.
However, on Twitch, there is a catch. You have to follow certain special steps to watch your recap on Twitch. We will help you with that. Find out everything about this interesting feature here, and learn how to get your Twitch Recap 2021.
What is Twitch Recap 2021?
Twitch Recap or Wrapped is a special feature that summarizes a user’s activity on the streaming platform, compiles it into an email, and then sends the email to the user. This feature was introduced last year and is available for both viewers as well as streamers.
The recap for viewers shows users which streamers they have watched the most, the top categories they have streamed this year, and the channels that they have watched the most.
For streamers, the recap offers a complete rewind of how many viewers they had this year, how many unique followers they have gained, and how many channel points they have collected. It includes a lot of important data about the growth and progress of your channel.
How to get your Twitch Recap 2021?

To receive the Twitch recap on your email, you have to make sure that you have enabled the option to receive “Marketing emails.” To do that, you have to follow these steps:
- Go to Twitch and log in to your account.
- Now go to “Settings.”
- Next, navigate to the “Notifications” tab.
- Next, go to “By email” and scroll down.
- When you find “Marketing,” turn the toggle switch on.
When the toggle is purple, you will receive marketing messages and promotions/recommendations from Twitch. This will allow you to receive your Twitch recap 2021.
It takes some time for the recap email to arrive. Wait patiently, and don’t forget to check the Promotions/Spam folder in your mailbox.
When you receive your Twitch recap 2021, you can view it, save it, and also export the image of the stats on social media platforms.
What if you don’t get the Twitch Recap 2021?
Some users have reported the issue of not receiving the recap email for 2021 from Twitch. If you are also experiencing the same issue, then you don’t have to worry. Twitch is not yet done sending the recap emails for this year yet.
Just make sure that there is not a problem at your end. Make sure you have registered a valid email address to your Twitch account, and have verified it. Also, make sure that your mailbox is not full.
After that, wait patiently and keep checking your mailbox including the Promotions, Spam, and other folders. The Twitch recap 2021 will definitely arrive if you have turned on the feature to receive marketing emails from Twitch.
Do Twitch Streamers receive both the “Streamer” and “Viewer” Recap?
Twitch Streamers receive a separate email that allows them to view the activity and progress of their channel over the year. However, some streamers are experiencing an issue where they have only received the “Viewer” recap and not the “Streamer” one.
At this moment, it is unclear if the streamers will receive two emails, or if they’ll receive only a single that includes the complete statistics. Some netizens have also speculated that only the Twitch Affiliates or Partner streamers will receive the “Streamer” recap.
Others will only receive the regular recap that users get. However, this is still only speculation. We should wait for Twitch to clear the confusion.
