Messenger launches Watch Together to watch Facebook videos in group | Applications and Software

The resource Watch Together (Watch Together) was announced on Monday (14) for video calls and Messenger Rooms (Rooms): you and your friends will be able to use the Messenger to watch videos from the Facebook Watch, a platform visited by more than 1.25 billion people each month. This is similar to the Facebook Watch Party, and resembles a similar Instagram feature called Co-Watching.

Facebook Messenger releases Watch Together

When the news reaches your account, you can watch group videos on iPhone, iPad and Android. There’s no secret: first, you start a video call in Messenger or create a Messenger Room. Then, open the menu by sliding your finger up and tap Watch Together.

You can watch videos with up to eight people on a traditional video call, and up to 50 people in a room. Messenger is used to make more than 150 million video calls each day.

Watch Together is being released globally this week, so it should take a few days before it is available on your mobile app.

Facebook says that the resource can be interesting for artists, DJs, cooks or personal trainers, as a way to see other people interacting with your videos. Therefore, the social network has partnered with trainer Melissa Alcantara to create a series of videos with physical activities, allowing users to exercise with their friends as a form of motivation.

In March of this year, Instagram launched Co-Watching, which allows you to view posts with your friends via video chat through Direct. The Facebook Watch Party, to watch group videos, arrived in 2018.
