Disney launches GroupWatch to watch Disney+ content simultaneously

Before launching in Latin America, Disney+ introduced GroupWatch, a new joint visualization feature that allows up to seven users to synchronize their screens and watch titles from the SVOD OTT platform  at the same time

The company announced that GroupWatch is available via the Internet, mobile devices, connected TV devices and smart TVs. Subscribers can access the experience through the GroupWatch icon, found on the ‘Series and Movie Details’ page of the SVOD OTT library. Later, Disney+ subscribers will receive a link to invite up to six other people to watch content from the platform with them (all of them must have an active Disney+ subscription). Invitations must be sent from mobile devices or via the web. Each subscriber who uses the new tool will be able to pause, play, rewind or advance the content, and even react through different emojis.

Disney launched a trial version of GroupWatch in Canada on September 10th, and in Australia and New Zealand on September 18th before launching the feature in the US.
