Watching Disney + with friends online is already possible through third-party apps and extensions (as with other services, such as Netflix and YouTube), but it is possible that the platform will gain an official tool for watching movies with other people from remote way. The term “group watch” was discovered in the source code of the service’s website, and would have been implemented last Friday (28).
According to blog Disney Plus Informer, who released the code first hand, it is possible that the feature will be released in time for Mulan’s debut at Permier Acces – that is, until September 4, in the United States.
As expected, the code indicates that the tool can only be used on a notebook or mobile device (tablet or smartphone). Apparently, there will be a limit of seven people per session, and you will not be able to participate in two sessions at the same time. Possible reactions / emojis for use within chats were also found.
If the rumors are correct, all members of a “Group Watch” session will have the same control over the video’s playback. In addition, child profiles would not be allowed – which is perfectly understandable, as it would allow children to participate in chats with third parties (representing greater concern for parents and guardians).
Disney + is scheduled to launch in November in Brazil, and the monthly subscription is expected to cost R $ 28.99. The service already has more than 60 million subscribers.
