Watch Parties are getting popular these days. The times when you schedule a day with your friends to go to the movies together and watch your favorite shows are becoming rare. You don’t have to go somewhere and meet. You can do it virtually.

Many streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Twitch have released their watch party or co-viewing features in the past months. With more people wanting to do things together with their friends, streaming services have planned to make it easier and safer for them. Watch Party features allow you to host a movie and invite your friends to watch it together at the same time. The main advantage is that you can do it in the same virtual room where it feels like you are watching inside a movie theater together.
