Facebook brings new feature “Watch Party”

A new Facebook feature has rolled out that allows the users to watch Facebook videos simultaneously, with each other. As you might have guessed, the name of the feature is Watch Party. All the different streams will sync together so that everyone can comment and react while the host controls the playback. There can be as many hosts as you want, and they all get the ability to add videos to the queue. Just like a party, attendees cannot control the playback of videos but can suggest them.  As of now, Watch Party feature is usable in groups only and not on pages. And Yes! The videos have to be hosted on Facebook itself. However, it is your decision whether you want to host a live session or play prerecorded content.  The feature came into testing in early January.

Lots of people are in dire need of this feature and wish it was available on Netflix and Spotify. After all, who would not like to enjoy content with friends or family even when they are not nearby?  Facebook has invested tremendously in its Watch content. That’s why it does not come as a surprise that Facebook is building such additional features. Anyhow, we’re unsure how many people want to sit and watch videos on Facebook with their groups. But Facebook’s motive is to make video streaming more enjoyable rather than just a passive activity.
