Disney Plus GroupWatch is the answer to Netflix Party (known now as Teleparty), a feature that allows you to watch content with your family or friends. You don’t just watch content, but you can also share reactions to content, which makes watching definitely more fun.
GroupWatch, Netflix Teleparty, and Amazon Prime Video Watch Party became especially popular during quarantine when people were locked in their homes and couldn’t get together to watch content together. However, even when the pandemic is over, it is likely that these features will remain popular because it is not always convenient for you to get together to watch content (especially if there are too many of you and you don’t have a big TV).
Disney Plus GroupWatch supports up to 7 people watching content together, so it is a big enough group to have a good time.
