With Amazon's official watch party feature, users will be able to watch all available titles in the Amazon Prime Video library. That turned out to be wishful thinking, as the first wave never ended, and now the U.S. is recording more new COVID-19 cases on a daily basis than in late April.
"Watch movies and TV shows recommended for you, including Amazon Originals like The Boys, Hunters, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, and much more", the app description reads. We are not getting back to normal any time soon, which is why now is the ideal time for Amazon's Prime Video Watch Party.
This week, Amazon is beginning to roll out the Watch Party feature on Prime Video for USA subscribers at no additional cost.
The Verge reports that a single session of the Amazon video watch party can hold up to 100 participants. The video watch party feature includes more than a thousand titles to choose from which users can enjoy with their gang. From a privacy perspective, the video parties can be joined only by the people who have the invite link shared by the host. The titles have to be available for streaming, though, as Watch Party does not now support rentals or purchases. Only available through major browsers on desktop computers and laptops in the United States (with the exception of Apple's Safari browser for now), the Watch Party feature can gather up to 100 people in a virtual room that will provide synchronized playback of movies and TV shows, as well as a chat sidebar on the right side of whatever they're watching.
