Facebook mentions that you can watch videos with up to eight people on a Messenger video call.

"Watch Together" has been in development since Facebook announced plans to develop a co-viewing experience two years ago. For example, a group could get together to watch a fitness video and work out together. And many people feared they'd no longer be able to post certain types of content they'd long utilized Facebook for, like a band's latest music video.

"We created Watch Collectively to make spending high quality time with mates and family members really feel as near an in-person expertise as potential", Facebook product supervisor Nora Micheva wrote in a weblog publish Monday.

"Whether it's watching a trending video, a movie, a sports highlight, a makeup tutorial, or a Facebook Watch original, the feature allows you to watch your friends' reactions at the same time", Ms Micheva said.

After the update to use the functionality, users will need to swipe up on a video call or Messenger Room and tap the Watch Together option.

"But if you utilize videos in our Products to make a music listening experience for your self or others, your videos will soon be obstructed along with your webpage profile or category might be deleted". If you are a chef or a fitness trainer, your audience can now watch your video and interact with you over a Messenger video.

The two-time Pro Bowler said his symptoms became so severe that he lost motivation to train and prepare for the upcoming season. RT Cameron Erving is listed as the starter with La'el Collins out at least the first three games with a hip injury.


The Watch Together feature borrows the functionality from Facebook's Watch Party feature that could be used by users to watch videos or content from a specific Facebook group or page.

Since its launch in 2018, Facebook Watch is witnessing more than 1.25 billion people discover and share videos from millions of creators and publishers.

A new set of guidelines released by Facebook this week have left bands confused as to what can happen if they choose to engage with their audience on the platform. Watch Together is rolling out globally this week in Messenger and Messenger Rooms for iOS and Android.
