The newly launched Facebook Messenger Watch Together feature gives friends and family members a new co-viewing opportunity within Messenger. The features supports all Facebook Watch video content, which includes everything from original programming and user uploads to creator content, livestreams and in the near future, even music videos.
Up to eight people in a Messenger video chat group on mobile or up to 50 people in Messenger Rooms can band together for a co-watching experience that helps people view the same videos at the same time. Since the experience is a joint one, users can help to choose videos from categories like TV & Movies, Uploaded, Suggested and Watched, which reviews recently watched content. Users can stop, pause, forward and go back, and all enjoy the same moments together with Watch Together.
