Do you live far away from your friends and family and miss watching your favorite shows and movies together? Well, Amazon has thought of a solution, the Amazon Watch Party. This functionality allows you to watch along and chat with others watching the same videos. Here’s what you need to know about the social watching feature on Amazon. 

Think of a watch party as a way to enjoy your favorite media with your family and friends without being in the same physical location. In addition to having a live chat, you can also create a conference call on Zoom or Discord and speak to each other while you’re watching a video. In a lot of ways, a watch party is like watching a react video online but with your family and friends.
