How To Watch Videos With Your Friends On Facebook Messenger

Since a lot of people are stuck in different places, watching fun stuff together can be cumbersome. Starting the video at the exact same time, pausing it for breaks easily takes the fun out.

Now, Facebook Messenger’s “Watch Together” feature is here to solve this problem. You can watch any video on the Facebook “Watch” tab. This includes Facebook’s own TV shows and movies.

When the video is playing, it’s synced up with everyone who is watching. Pausing the video will pause it for everyone. You will see the members of the call on the screen as well as the streaming content.

However, the new feature won’t allow you to use popular streaming services like Netflix. Here’s how to watch some fun videos with your friends without being in the same room:
