Philo's live TV streaming service is considered to be one of the most affordable options on the market and in a bid to update the user experience, the company announced last year that a new co-viewing feature is on the way for both live and on-demand content.
The social attribute will allow users of the service to react and interact with one another during streaming. However, the company is interested in introducing some flexibility to the co-viewing feature. It has reportedly "been working on building a platform feature for synchronizing different livestreams" to "provide a more seamless experience for people trying to video chat with others."
An area of interest is also allowing viewers to rewatch scenes, fast-forward or backward "without necessarily having to bring their friends with them." This is being realized through a toggle that allows one to switch from synchronized to non-synchronized viewing.
