How to watch Facebook videos with a Watch Party | Social networks

Watch Party is the name of the Facebook feature that allows you to watch videos together with friends on your cell phone, as long as the content is publicly available. Group members can watch one or several content in real time, commenting and interacting with the content as if they were in a living room.

The function is available on all social network platforms, whether in the web version or in the apps for Android and iPhone (iOS). The tutorial below, which teaches you how to create a Watch Party on Facebook on your cell phone, was performed on a Moto G5S Plus running Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
