Facebook launches Watch Party live video feature for groups, communities

Wednesday 25 July 2018 | 17:18 CET | News
Facebook has launched Watch Party, a way for groups or small communities to watch videos on the social network, in real time. They can watch the videos, live or recorded, and interact with one another at the same time. The idea is to make watching a video on Facebook more "fun and social," the company said. In testing for example, groups sometimes dedicated over 10 hours to a single Watch Party, with different members coming in and out throughout the day.
