How to display YouTube Live Stream Replay chat?

I noticed that I could watch the chat on an actual live stream, but I can't seem to see the chat on replay. Is there a way to enable this?

Re: How to display YouTube Live Stream Replay chat?

Sounds like a question for YouTube, not Roku.
Each channel creates, provides, and maintains its own app to stream their channel to the Roku, as well as deciding and programming its features, including geographical areas of operation. Roku only provides the platform on which the 3rd party channel apps run. You should direct your questions and concerns to the channel. (Exceptions are the two channels provided by Roku, The Roku Channel and Roku Media Player. For these you should contact Roku.)

I don't think chat replay has ever been a reality with Roku but I'm not sure.

Currently as of November 2021 on my Roku Express I've noticed the live chat feature comes and goes with updates. Some say to contact Youtube about this issue. But I believe it's Roku software update that causes the break.
