Gaze helps to create "long-distance movie nights" by offering a solution for people who are apart yet watching videos together. To support its sync-watch features that help to make sure people are seeing the same on-screen content at the same time, Gaze offers a video chat feature that lets people see each other and react as if they were face-to-face. To interact with one another, users can also exchange messages instantly. With Gaze, users can view their own video files or turn to the hours upon hours of content that can be found on YouTube.
Gaze appeals to friends, family and people in relationships who are apart, as it helps to create a sense of the closeness of being in the same room virtually. Unlike some co-watching platforms, Gaze is for intimate, one-on-one viewing parties.
