Streaming service Disney+ has finally become available for share-watching. You can invite friends to join a live call on FaceTime and watch Disney+ shows together.

Disney+ is now available for streaming when you’re on a FaceTime call. SharePlay is a feature, which allows you to watch shows, movies, and YouTube videos with other people who are on a call in FT.

That means the platform’s entire catalog is now available for shared watching. It includes such shows as The Mandalorian, Loki, Star Wars movies, Wonda Vision, Gravity Falls, 101 Dalmatian, Weird, but True, Turner and Hooch, and many other shows.

What’s even better, you can organize an improvised “movie theater” for your family. Or your club of “Pop Culture Appreciators”. The thing is, FaceTime live conference allows up to 32 people at the same time.

Plus, the call can be broadcast to an Apple TV, which makes the showtime even more enjoyable. And thanks to the Navi app, people with hearing problems can join the fun as well.

Navi is capable to produce synchronized subtitles in 20 languages: from English to Japanese. As Disney+ commented:

With thousands of movies and shows and a growing content catalog of new titles and originals, SharePlay provides another opportunity for personal friends and family around the world to come together and create new memories with their favorite stories on Disney+.

In addition to Disney+, SharePlay also supports Paramount+, HBO Max, Hulu, and others, including TikTok. Strangely, Netflix is one of the streaming platforms that still ignore SharePlay.

Disney+, with its immense catalog, has made it right on time. Now you can share your favorite cartoons and features with your friends and family.
