Following an early launch for testing the system in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, the GroupWatch feature on Disney+ has now rolled out in the US. And the fact that the features previously appeared, we now have an idea of what to expect, but now the company is officially offering the details on the streaming tool.
Some of this was revealed during the early test stage. Like, first, you can use GroupWatch to stream a movie or show with up to six of your friends watching. It’s also very important that you make sure they all have a Disney+ account in order for this to work.
Apps across mobile, streaming devices, and smart TVs as well as accessing the service on the web will all allow you to use the co-viewing feature.
If you want to start right away, just tap a GroupWatch icon next to the play button on the details page for any movie or show. Next, select up to six people to join you and how you want to send the invite link.
You may be using messaging apps and email mostly, but you’ll see your phone’s familiar interface as if you had just tapped the share button on a website or inside another app. While you sending the invite, Disney+ will ask if you want to move from your phone to a bigger screen.
That happens because for now, all invite links have to originate and be accepted from the mobile app or the service’s website. As an invitee, you can move on to your television before the content starts, but the process has to begin for everyone at one of those two spots. After everyone joins the group, the host will start the stream.
