HOW TO USE THE WATCH PARTY FEATURE ON AMAZON PRIME VIDEO

Since the pandemic forced people worldwide to distance themselves socially, various digital platforms like Facebook, Spotify, and Instagram, have rolled out new features to hang out together virtually. While Facebook has Rooms, Spotify now allows people to listen to their favourite songs with their friends or close ones simultaneously; Amazon now has a Watch Party. Similar to Netflix Watch Party, Amazon India has launched its own Watch Party option for Prime subscribers.

Users who have subscribed to the Prime version will watch shows, movies, and other entertainment programs in realtime with their friends.

Notably, the Amazon Watch Party feature is currently only available for the desktop version of Prime Video and is only supported by computer browsers such as Chrome and Firefox. Safari and Internet Explorer are not yet supported. Also, the watch party will work only if every party has a Prime subscription.

A yearly Amazon Prime subscription costs Rs 999 in India.

How to use Watch Party in Amazon Prime Video

Step 1: Open the Amazon Prime Video site on your desktop devices. Call up and ask your gang to have their websites opened as well

Step 2: Now type in the name of the movie or TV show you would like to watch with your friends

Step 3: On the title page for movies, you will find the Watch Party option; click on that. On the other hand, individual episodes of shows will carry the option.

Step 5: Once the name has been assigned, click on the tab that reads: ‘Create Watch Party’

Step 6: Now, you will have the option to share the Watch link with up to 100 people. But all of them must have a Prime subscription

Step 7: others will be able to join by clicking on the link given by you, and once everyone is set, you can begin your watch party
