Disney+ Is Rolling Out a NEW Group Watch Feature!
It looks like the Group Watch function on Disney+ may be closer to reality with the news that the tool is currently being tested with Canadian subscribers. As we previously reported here at MickeyBlog, the function will allow subscribers to join up and watch DIsney+ programs as a tiny group across different accounts.
Screenshots of the feature first started to appear on the Disney Plus subreddit yesterday. The new Disney+ Group Watch feature will allow up to 6 people to join the party and watch the contents together. It also allows subscribers to stream any film or television show on the platform.
According to a recent post on The Verge, GroupWatch is currently being tested in Canada for some subscribers. The company plans on rolling out the feature to other markets at some point this Fall. With the feature, subscribers can stream any movie or TV show on Disney+ as long as the other group members are active Disney+ subscribers as well. Using the feature you can invite up to six friends to watch things like The Mandalorian, Avengers: Endgame or even Hamilton together. As you can see from the image above, you can access the feature through an icon on a show or movie’s title page.
Though the feature is not new to the streaming industry (Amazon Prime Video rolled out something similar this year) we love the idea of being able to link up with other friends and family members further afield to share family movie nights together. This is a story that we definitely expect to hear more about in the weeks to come so keep following along with MickeyBlog for further news and updates!
