In a bid to make the video streaming experience more engaging, Amazon Prime Video India has introduced its Watch Party feature in India. Using this feature, Prime Video Watch Party viewers can start streaming a show, and subsequently access ‘Watch Party’ to share the show stream with up to 100 friends. Along with sharing the show, viewers of Prime Video Watch Party in India will get a live chat feature, using which they can set up a group chat and therefore enjoy the show together. The feature is in line with the various online social activity techniques that companies around the world have come up with, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues into extended months.
The Prime Video Watch Party experience works when Prime Video subscribers sign in using their desktop web browsers, and is supported for any show that is part of Amazon Prime Video. The social viewing experience will also include synchronised playback that will be controlled by the host of the Watch Party. It is important to note that to be able to be a party of a Watch Party, every member will need to have an active Amazon Prime or Prime Video membership.
