Prime Video Watch Party is available for US Prime members and Prime Video subscribers for now, and you have to be on a desktop browser to utilize it.

When in a "Watch Party" session the host will be able to control the viewing experience.

In the case of range, the "Watch Party" facility is available across more than 70 Amazon Prime Video titles and they are adding more.

With the on-going pandemic, streaming services have doubled down on making it easy to watch with friends and family near and far. Once you've been redirected to the title, enter your desired username under "What's Your Name?" and then click "Join Watch Party" to join the Watch Party.

Watch Parties are available only on desktop browsers (except Safari); other devices like Fire TV, smart TVs, game consoles, connected media players, mobile phones, and tablets are not now supported. The service is also limited to Prime customers located in the USA for now.

Plex's feature, however, is still in beta, and it does not feature integrated chat like the previously mentioned services. Upon this, a link pops up, which can be shared to your friends and acquaintances, just like a Zoom meeting, but something you actually want to be in (and don't have to frantically dress up for).

The host of the co-watching session will have the ability to begin, cease and pause the Watch Get together as wanted all through the session, and people modifications will even be synced to all members' units immediately.

The app is completely free to download though an Amazon Prime subscription is naturally needed to view premium content.
