Facebook officially launched the Watch Party tool, which began testing in January. The novelty allows members of a group to watch videos on the social network together, in real time, whether they are recorded films or live streams. Users can also react and comment in the session, which can have one or more videos.
The function comes first for groups, but Facebook has announced that it plans to expand the feature to pages and personal profiles in the future. In this tutorial, see how to use Watch Party from your PC.
