Users can watch movies, music videos and commercials and discuss them in the General chat.

Facebook announced the full launch of a new feature called Watch Party that allows you to watch replays of the videos.
How it works

Now, any user can invite friends and together with them to watch favorite movie, music video or any other video. And to create a sense of presence in the General chat you can post comments and share their impressions.

For this you need to add or select a video and invite friends. To steer the process will be the organizer of the “party”.

It will also be possible to schedule a “picture show” for a certain time, notifying friends, and simultaneously stream that will be displayed in the window in the corner.


 


 


 


 

 

 
Why is it necessary

Since the beginning of this year, the function of the Watch Party tested in some groups and with several partners, including the news media, sports pages and the representatives of the digital entertainment sector. And tests have shown that such videos are collected in 8 times more comments. It’s also a great opportunity to attract new viewers.
